1 out of 5 eggsWon't stay mounted

Pros: Pros don't matter because the con is the most important aspect of the product.

Cons: It doesn't stay mounted. It keep ejecting itself in the middle of file transfers. It's happened four times in the last hour.

Other Thoughts: DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!

2 out of 5 eggsWorks, barely

Pros: Cheap. Works, sometimes.

Cons: Cheap. Has a tendency to stop being recognized. Doesn't hold a connection for some drives (keeps parking the heads). May cause BSODs, depending on the driver. Had to unplug it to boot, but that might have been my BIOS.

Other Thoughts: It's cheap, but it's more trouble than it's worth. Spend the extra money for something reliable.

2 out of 5 eggsFrequent Problems

Pros: Decent pricing, easy disassembly/assembly, simple design

Cons: Ventilation inadequate, as the enclosure keeps drive powered on and spinning nonstop (no power-saving spin-down).
Enclosure seems to be prone to occasional device recognition issues, requiring to power on for 15-30sec before connecting (as if the enclosure's controller needs time to read from the drive before it is usable) otherwise device connection errors are seen. This is problematic after reboots.

2 out of 5 eggsShort Life

Pros: Small, fast, simple

Cons: The enclosure worked perfectly for about 2 or 3 weeks and then it began acting up and actually creating issues on my laptop. When plugging the device in my laptops entire USB bus would reset (all devices show as disconnected and reconnected) and on numerous occasions it would require a reboot of my machine.

Other Thoughts: During my testing I removed the drive and placed it in another enclosure which worked fine so as to eliminate the hard drive as being the issue.

3 out of 5 eggsLasted 1.5 yrs

Pros: * worked when it worked
* pretty fast transfers up to 150MB/s over USB 3.0
* worked with up to 4TB drives

Cons: * annoying power down and spin up on its own every time PC wants to access any drive in OS
* started acting up after I upgraded mobo from Z77 to Z97 then Probox died

Other Thoughts: * Lasted 1.5 years
* Pretty much worth its price if you need something inexpensive quick
* It's not perfect and won't last forever so think twice before getting it

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Easy-to-use Enclosure

Pros: Simple, Easy to setup, Easy assembly

Cons: Heat has gotten to be an small issue, the system runs the HDDs at max speed instead of running them at a low speed until accessed for work. No power save function when turning off main computer but that's why they have the switch...

Other Thoughts: Overall, i am very happy with the product it performs well under heavy loads while editing video. The vibration is minimal in the vertical position and they have not crashed once since using them.

5 out of 5 eggsMediasonic Probox

Pros: Removed old Falcon drive from enclosure and placed in this enclosure. Worked just fine and added USB 3.0 capability. USB 3.0 enclosure accesses data alot faster than when it was in the other enclosure.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Could have included a sata port, but with USB 3.0 being the staple now probably not an issue.

4 out of 5 eggsmediasonic K32-SU3

Pros: easy to set up, works great, for the on sale price of $19.99 its the only affordable SATA III solution, my first one I bought spring of 2013 to use with the 2TB WD drive from a MY BOOK external that was cr*p & after 3 RMA's with WD still had the same problem, I use this for movie & video storage & editing it is connected to my network using it in USB 2.0 mode only it runs 24/7 & has not had one problem in 7 months, it has been reported that some drives may spin down all the time, mediasonic has a firmware update on their website to fix this.

Cons: LED on wrong end, no felt pads for feet, I like to lay my drives flat for safety as I have cats & kittens & don't want it knocked over so I bought 4 felt stick on pads to put on the bottom to absorb any sound & vibration through the desk, it would have been nice to have the LED on the other end as I like to hang the wires down the back of my desk hidden out of the way but would still like to know the state of the drive, these things would have cost them an extra .10 to .25 cents at time of production to have a perfect item rather than a good item

Other Thoughts: I have now ordered a second one at the sale price to build another 2Tb storage drive & would by another if needed
