2 out of 5 eggsBad power supplies

Pros: I was fine with an enclosure where the USB connection only worked for IDE drives, and the construction of the unit seemed fine. I liked it, overall, and when the power supply worked, everything seemed great.

Cons: The first one I got had a bad power supply (bad connection somewhere around the strain relief coming from the transformer). Sent it back, they sent me another. Had the exact same problem. Newegg gave me a full refund, as you would hope, but it's been weeks without easy access to that HD, now. Fortunately I don't seem to have fried the HD I had in there, but be careful.

Other Thoughts: It's a shame that a simple component like that would ruin the usability of the thing. I'll be looking to other brands for my enclosures. 2 stars instead of 1 because it was otherwise nice-enough seeming. Maybe they'll sort out the power supply thing some day, but I'm not risking any HDs to find out.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks exactly like it should

Pros: Slick looks, cool operation, exactly as advertised.

Cons: None so far. It's a common theme for 3rd party enclosures to go bad. We'll see if that holds the same for this one.

Other Thoughts: Two reviewers under me complain about Sata not working with IDE, both assuming a decently high tech level. If they'd bother to apply a bit of critical thinking, they'd have understood that an IDE device is NOT a SATA device. The two interfaces are entirely different, and there's absolutely no reason to assume that this part would make compatible what no other part has made compatible before.

3 out of 5 eggsIt's...ok

Pros: Supports IDE and SATA; has USB and eSATA for external connection; it was a fair price compared to others at the time of purchase; good air vent; slim.

Cons: As mentioned by previous reviewer, the external USB connector only works if IDE HDD is connected. The external eSATA connector only works if SATA HDD is connected. The SATA connector seems to be upside down.

Other Thoughts: The space is very limited for a slim case so connecting the IDE cable to the HDD and still able to close the cover may be a challenge to some. My choice would have been different if I would have known that I cannot use my 1TB SATA HDD in this case to backup data from older PC via USB. I wonder when will eSATA be PnP.

5 out of 5 eggsInteresting IDE device

Pros: As old as IDE's are around there has not been any other cooler enclosure's around. It's very convenient light weight and greatly designed with the mesh design. I do not have to worry about the heating that is obtained through the hard drive spinning, but it actually runs quite smoothly and seems effortlessly.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: The unit is actually comparable to many in the market but the mesh design is very beneficial to any in the market price is actually very fair and wished it came with a built-in fan.

1 out of 5 eggsMore specs needed

Pros: The case looks nice, it's cover is like screen wire, helps let heat out.

Cons: Though the cover lets heat out, it lets dust in. I have a few smaller ide drives I wanted to transfer the data to another larger usb 3.0 external. Wanting it to be fast, I bought this case to put the smaller drives in so I could use the sata port. Guess what, if you use ide drives, it only works with usb port, not the sata port. Oh well, just wasted 36.00 and a hour of time.
