3 out of 5 eggsWorked until 3TB

Pros: Worked/works great for under 1TB HD's. Use it constantly to b/u many different PC's and Mac's for friends and fam. I've used a number of different size and Manufactures of HD's.

Cons: When I got a 3TB HD, the Mac OS would only recognize 800GB.

1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable

Pros: OK when it worked

Cons: Even when it was new, this thing was finniky with specific drives. It has never worked fine on every drive. Some worked OK, some click click click and then work fine straight on the motherboard connectors. First the Esata goes out on these things, Always, always. I have another Vantec enclosure that did the same thing. and also others have that problem. Then you can only use USB -it's an old tired routine. After a couple of years this thing will not accept any drive. I have also had the "Do you want to format this drive" error on a backup drive full of data. Then sometimes you turn it off then on and it works fine. And it will lock up your PC also, when it crashes. Tired of it. I will never buy one of these again.

Other Thoughts: Please don't keep putting "tech knowledge = high" , boys and girls, and then prove that it's below "low" simply by your comments. It's getting old.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works

Cons: Power button wears out after minimal use.

Other Thoughts: The power button wears out after minimal use. It gets stuck in the on position making it difficult to turn the power of to the device in order to safely take out your hard drive. This is bypassed by just unplugging the device from the back after you eject the drive. Still though, I think something as simple as a power button that doesn't fail after pushing 50 times is a must, so one egg.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked like a champ!

Pros: You could be a monkey and figure this out. In fact I may very well be one.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Never realized you could do this, "save a hard drive" and then a client told me about this concept. Said don't fix the components, just dig hard drive out and snap you can use data stored on it, or as added back up. Snap, he was write.

1 out of 5 eggsshort-term

Pros: nice case, like power button, eject button
came with eSATA cable & eSATA internal kit

Cons: worked for around 5 or 6 uses, then started cutting out intermittantly. Drives 1GB & up not recognized

Other Thoughts: For the record, I did not buy this from Newegg.
Have now replaced it with an alternate manufacturer's unit.

5 out of 5 eggsNear perfect.

Pros: Stands straight up, and doesn't drop the drive off the OS. And rather bright. A good one up from Azio.

Cons: Man that blue light is bright. and the power button does stick. Minor annoyance and of course the eject button is silly although nowhere near as useless as the Rosewill one. Avoid that one at all costs. Bad power button and corrupts the drive. Pretty good with 1 TB but that one and 2 TB. Oh no. I returned it for this one. No problems since.

Other Thoughts: Yes avoid the Rosewill of the same time with eSata. Unsafe, faulty, and will corrupt your data. :( Vantec no problems in the future. Someday maybe I'll go to USB 3.0. But it's not ready yet.

1 out of 5 eggsProblems with this device

Pros: Features are the only pros

Cons: I have three of these and they have all failed to recognize drives over time. I now use 2 Rosewill and have yet to have any problem at all.

3 out of 5 eggsFantastic with Retail boards

Pros: This is great for a tech work bench. I am using this over eSata. Data transfers are at native Sata speeds. I love this for working on a customers drive.

Cons: I didn;t work on my Dell Dimension e521 AMD, or my Dell Dimension 3100 Intel. This caused them to fail the POST.

Other Thoughts: I would suggest this for use at any tech bench. But be sure to use this with a retail mother board.
