3 out of 5 eggsVANTEC-NST-330U3F-SL

Pros: Simple to use; good cooling; solid construction.

Cons: Energy conservation modes do not work with Firewire 800 connection per the info provided by VANTEC Technical Support. This is disappointing after paying a premium price for the Firewire connection. Fan is not controlled by thermostat; it must be manually turned off when not needed.

Other Thoughts: The non-Firewire unit would be a decent deal but I wanted the Firewire speed for my 5 year old iMac without USB 3.0 ports. Disappointed, but it's functional.

5 out of 5 eggsgood stuff

Pros: excellent enclosure, quite fan, smart and Green. This enclosure will sleep when your computer sleep and wake when your system wakes from sleep. The huge fan keeps the drive cool even with a 10k drive. If you worry about drive heating up in your enclosure this is the right one. The usb 3.0 and Firewire800 is excellent for Mac and PC.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Some user mention that they cannot get it to work. Actually, if you do not have the enclosure connect to your working system, it will not power ON due to the smart function. You have to connect to a working system and it work just fine.

1 out of 5 eggsStay Away - QC issues

Pros: - Looks great!
- USB 3.0 and Firewire 800
- Hard drive is easy to install

Cons: - DOA x2. Popped drive in, plugged it into power and computer, flipped the lights, no fan, hard drive staring at me like it expects me to ask nicely. I thought it was just bad luck since I've had great experiences with Vantec enclosures in the past. Sent it back, replacement was also DOA.

- Includes greasy fingerprints on the PCB.

Other Thoughts: This enclosure looks great on paper, and I really wanted to like it. I have 5 Vantec enclosures, so I didn't think twice when ordering this. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this enclosure until Vantec improves its quality control...and buys gloves for the factory workers making it.
