2 out of 5 eggsPoor Manufactoring

Pros: Unable to give any pros since I did not even get to use it.

Cons: The mounting holes for the Hard Drive were not drilled in the right place. The hard drive would not plug into the interface board if mounting holes were used

Other Thoughts: This one looked like it was previously sent back because someone drilled addtional holes in the cover to try to mount a drive.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Perfect case, no issues, runs very cool for not having a fan with a 320gb WD drive. The option to turn the side LED lights on and off is nice.

Cons: One thing that might annoy people is that the LED switch is for the sides only, it doesn't turn off the blinking of the LED that signifies activity of the drive.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat buy

Pros: Installed a Samsung HD501LJ 500GB SATA drive and couldn't be happier. Even though my mobo only has SATA 1.5 my connection runs 4 times faster than when I move files with USB2. What took 80 minutes USB2 now takes 20 minutes. The longest I ran it continuously was about 12 hours and it ran pretty cool. I worried that these enclosures may need a fan since many designs have them, but I used the stand that makes the unit sit vertically and no problem.

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: I have not been able to see how fast files would transfer with SATA 3.0 (yet) because of my computer. I liked the fixed SATA hard drive mount and how you screw the drive into place from the outside. Should go without saying...but the side the drive is mounted to gets warmer than the other side.

Cons: none yet

5 out of 5 eggsGreat External Case

Pros: Easy to install. Love the cableless connection for My WD 500GB SATA drive. It literally took longer to remove the drive and enclosure from the packing materials than it did to install my new drive,power up, and begin formatting.

Cons: A fan or some heat sinks would be nice.

Other Thoughts: Just a note in my installation, the drive was not recogized even though the USB enclosure was. I could not see the external in my computer under WINXP. A quick Disk Director partition and format of the new drive. Then all was good!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Let me tell ya Awesome!!! I got the red color ones instead of the silver, they work,look and perform great.

Cons: I need to buy more

Other Thoughts: I put a WD Caviar 320 SE16 in and had no problems at all. Don't spend your money on the higher price ones its a waste.

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding Equipment

Pros: Enclosure is fully comprised of metal. SATA bracket connected nicely to motherboard and chassis. LEDs are bright blue and quite nice. Simple installation; they even include an extra drive screw.

Cons: External SATA cable could be longer, but this isn't a big deal.

Other Thoughts: I put a WD 160GB RE 16MB cache drive inside it. Had no difficulty recognizing the drive, no trouble initializing it or formatting it. Native SATA hotplug worked wonderfully. Sandra 2007 reports a sustained transfer rate of 61MB/s. Quite pleased with this enclosure, would buy again.
