1 out of 5 eggs2 TB?

Pros: Looks good and works well except for some confustion over the fact that the one I received would not recognize 2TB

Cons: As mentioned above the unit I received only recognize 1 TB. The box says 1TB and so does the documentation and when I put in my 2TB drive the enclosuer would only recognize 1TB.

Other Thoughts: I ordered a 2TB unit(as advertised on the website, which I did not receive, so now I have to do an RMA and pay to ship it back to NewEgg! If I buy another unit I'll have to pay for the shipping on that one too. I feel I paid for the shipping already and should not have to pay again.

4 out of 5 eggsupdated info

Pros: It looks nice. When the power supply is working, it works great!

Cons: I figured out that the external power supply brick has failed after just a few hours of usage.

Other Thoughts: I had an older Vantec IDE model, and I stole its power pod, and this SATA enclosure is back in business! Do they sell spare power supplies for these things?

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It looks nice.

Cons: It failed after just a few hours of use. That's bad karma when talking about vast amounts of storage!

Other Thoughts: Bought this 14 months ago, but barely used it. Yesterday I loaded hundreds of GB of data onto it (2TB WD Green), so I could reformat/reinstall the computer. It then proceeded to get stuck in "idle" (red light) and refuse to spin up the hdd or talk to the USB bus. I tried everything Windows, Linux, power cycling, replugging cables, and reseating the drive into the enclosure. Had to take the hdd out to get at my data, which was luckily okay.

5 out of 5 eggsA great way to re use old drives

Pros: This actualy works! I was worried that the power down would permanantly remove it from my system or, that the spin up would take too long. I am happy to report that it works as advertised. The rugged Aluminimum ase dispells heat (Not that it produces as much as the regular ones, since it spins down and eventualy parks)
it is great to tuck away somewhere and just use for the weekly backups of your devices.

Cons: There is no HDD activity light, but since it backs up at night , who cares? you may not want this in a bedroom as the LED's for the various stages of sleep are very bright.

Other Thoughts: it would be nice if they had an ATA version so I could use up a few old ATA drives, unfortunatly the inteligent version only supports SATA, they do sell dumb ones that support ATA (They have no shutdown though)

1 out of 5 eggsTwo stopped working within a week

Pros: Case appears to be good quality, until....

Cons: The first unit was DOA and the second unit worked for about 2 hours.

Other Thoughts: Waste of my time and money. Stuck with a dead unit and empty pockets. Vantec tech support was very courteous, but since they couldn't make a product that works reliably it wasn't worth much.

1 out of 5 eggsPower Supply Failed

Pros: This is a correction to the review I left before.

Cons: The power supply started to fail after a few weeks. The HD would not spin up anymore.

Other Thoughts: Newegg wasnt going to replace it since I didn't send it in with the box so basicly I was stuck with a broken item. I understand the UPC code has to match the unit but I wasn't about to let this happen. With a little forcefullness, they agreed to replace it THIS ONE TIME ONLY.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat buy

Pros: Small and neat. Setup is the easiest ever. Plug in the drive, plug in the LED cable and you are good to go.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The LEDs are king of useless. they are one the back so you can only see them when its in the lay flat position. Its really not a con, but a useless item on the device.
