3 out of 5 eggsGood Enclosure but........

Pros: Very nice looking enclosure not to big just the right size
very sturdy construction easy to assemble hdd goes in
a little tight into the connections thought I was going to
break something but all is well.

Cons: Now for the CONS!!!!!! it did not have the SATA bracket
included in the box or the LED switch that is shown on
the back of the enclosure in the pictures. Do not let the
pictures fool you I got fooled into buying it so it could be
run off of SATA but nope that's not going to happen not
unless I buy a add in SATA card.

Other Thoughts: Again DO NOT!!!! let yourself be FOOLED into buying it if
you are planning on using it for SATA not unless you are
willing to buy a add in card and spend the extra money.
Newegg needs to update the pictures and the product
specifications to not show the external bracket and the
LED switch on the back of the enclosure.

4 out of 5 eggsits a cool looking box

Pros: It looks cool. Sure beats having some ugly boxy thing just sitting there and being an eyesore. The LED switch is a nice improvement. Durable.

Cons: The power and USB connections are kind of loose and easily yanked out.

Other Thoughts: I got a first generation metal gear box a few years back. This is my second one.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This slick looking metal case that makes reference to an awesome game series is so far living up to my expectations. The case itself is very easy to take apart and reassemble for installation, but seems very sturdy. There's a switch to turn off the built-in LEDs, except the "disk working" LED will still flash. The enclosure stays pretty cool even after being left on for extended periods.

Cons: The documentation only covers the hardware installation. There is no documentation to explain what the included drivers disc is for, and the instructions on the disc are limited and vague. Thankfully, the disc is only really needed if you have an OS older than Windows XP. The vertical stand that came with mine doesn’t quite fit on the case and feels like it’s going to squeeze the casing so hard that it might leave a bend in the metal! Though perhaps I was putting it on wrong, this is something that could be addressed in the included documentation.

Other Thoughts: I had some trouble partitioning the hard disk once it was installed, but that's because I forgot to initialize it first. So far I am very pleased with the enclosure's performance.
