5 out of 5 eggs6GB/s

Pros: -Aluminum case
-Front vent
-Full sata III
-4TB compatible
-Great design

Cons: -Inner tray is plastic
-No esata (not really a big deal for me)

Other Thoughts: This was an awesome improvement over an old usb 2.0 enclosure and Vantec has always been a solid brand.
I'm using a 4+ year old 2TB WD Black in it and am getting rates around 70-100 MB/s.
The led in the front for activity isn't super bright so it's not distracting, and if you dont like it, you could just disconnect easily it anyways.
As for the inner try. It's a little "light" feeling in my opinion, I was a kind of scared the first time I put a drive in it, but it seems to be holding up just fine so long as you don't over tighten anything.

Overall, great buy at a decent price. I wanted something that could take full advantage of sata III and this was it.

5 out of 5 eggsYay USB 3

Pros: Fast! Works with my Haswell motherboard.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: For a while, I lamented that this enclosure didn't have eSATA. Then I realized that it didn't matter, because it's so fast the way it is.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good finish on the outside of the case. The internal connection to the SATA drive seems solid and the case is easy to put together. The only tool you'll need is a Phillips screwdriver.

Cons: The USB cable is fairly short, and there is still too much of a price premium for USB 3 speed.

Other Thoughts: The first one that Newegg sent me worked one time, then died. This first failure is why I rated the enclosure as 3 of 5. The second enclosure is working ok so far.
