3 out of 5 eggs2010 PCB slow, 2012 PCB fast.

Pros: Cheap, USB 3.0 speeds.

Cons: Old version PCB is slow, new version PCB is fast.

Other Thoughts: I purchased 2 of these. One transfer at 10MB/s, the other one at 80MB/s. I found out the slow one has an old PCB from 2010, ES35A-1051-v1.2, while the other has a new PCB from 2012, ES35A-ASM1051-v1.3.

4 out of 5 eggsSleek but not cool.

Pros: Compatible with 3.5" and 2.5" drives, Plug-n-Play, possibly enough room in case for a small adapter for drives older than SATA, sturdy metal case, stand has superb rubber grips on feet, base slides in and out both ways from the cover.

Cons: External power source needed, Case gets SUPER HOT, no cooling fan installed, had to unscrew the circuit board from the case to install into the HDD before installing the HDD into the case, base does not slide smoothly through cover.

Other Thoughts: Comes with a driver disk (not needed), 4 screws for securing drive in case and 2 screws to secure cover to base of case (comes in bag with the other 4 screws which are bigger so don't confuse them), a puny user's manual (1 note paper sized paper), a power cord, and BEST OF ALL, A SCREWDRIVER!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks perfectly

Pros: Simple setup
Non-PS2 power cable!!!
Price
USB 3.0
Good passive cooling (therefore quiet)

Cons: Nothing really that I can think of

Other Thoughts: No need to remove the screws on the back, which I originally did thinking that I needed to but the whole tray just slid out without needing to remove those.

1 out of 5 eggsFAIL

Pros: It worked the first time I turned it on, USB3.

Cons: I've had two of these fail in the exact same way. The controller tends to die after a copule of weeks. Paid more in RMA costs now then I origionally paid for the units. Disks installed in the units work fine in other enclosures.

Other Thoughts: The enclosures were set up vertically to maximise convection cooling. Very light IO, used as archival storage.

4 out of 5 eggsCheap, but functional

Pros: I now have 3 of these drives performing backup duties. Fundamentally, they work at USB 3.0 speeds and are very cheap.

Cons: You do get what you pay for. The mechanical aspects of this case are poor.
There are a lot of sharp edges.
Not everything lines up. Dropping a hard drive into the chassis won't work as the internal SATA connector won't line up. All the screws need to be loosened to get things to line up. In a word "fiddly".
One case was received with the front mesh grill bent slightly (resolved easily).
One case had the screws holding the PC Board down VERY tight.

3 out of 5 eggsNot Recommended

Pros: metal case; packed well; vented front; power switch.

Cons: There are 3 problems:

1: Built with the wrong screws attaching the circuit board to the stand-offs. Used tapered head when flat head is needed. The tapered head forces the circuit board out of position and even worse pushed the board down past the top of the stand-offs making it impossible to attach disk to the circuit board and possibly short circuiting the circuit board on the metal tray.

2: metal tray flexes possibly causing short circuit of disk electronics

3: included screw driver not the proper one for the screws

Other Thoughts: I replaced the screws with flat head and insulated the tray.

2 out of 5 eggsDOES NOT SPIN DOWN

Pros: Looks REALLY nice, pretty good quality construction for the price.

Cons: NEVER spins down, even when the computer sleeps. Afraid my HDD was going to melt inside. Tried other cables and computers, but got the same result. Mine arrived with a few cosmetic defects - I would've dealt with that if it wasn't for the no-sleep issue.

Other Thoughts: Why would ANY modern HDD enclosure not allow the drive to spin down to save wear and tear? Ahhh!

1 out of 5 eggsLooked good but didn't work

Pros: Looked good. Good specs. USB 3 was a plus

Cons: Didn't work. Enclosed disk not recognized by computer. I suspect the internal connector was misalligned.

Other Thoughts: Returned via RMA.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Seemed to keep the drive cool enough.

Cons: Controller died after 1 month. No longer recognized by USB2 or USB3 controller.

Other Thoughts: Would be nice if it had a mesh screen on the top/bottom to help with convection to keep the drive from frying itself under load.
