1 out of 5 eggsUseless

Pros: Came fast??

Cons: New 2.5 two terabyte hard drive will not fit in it and no 3.5 hard drive mounting hardware to quick swap it either so you need the whole kit and that means buying it twice and still cant use the extra big capacity drives anyway just useless??

Other Thoughts: Good paperweight!!
