3 out of 5 eggsWorks - Has PATA too!

Pros: Well, It works. Also, as the other review states, it does have an internal PATA connection which is not mentioned in any specs I can find. I have not tested the PATA connection.

Cons: All the internal connections are by wire unlike other cases I have had where the drive just slides into the socket. So it is a little extra work. Be careful not to pinch any wires when re-assembling.

Other Thoughts: The other reviewer stated that his light was red when idle then magenta when working. My case is has a blue light when idle then magenta when working. If you flipped the 3 wire connection the the red and blue led you could have it either way or unplug it completely.

3 out of 5 eggsNot bad

Pros: This actually has internal connections for both SATA and PATA drives. The product is listed as SATA only - so the PATA option was a pleasant surprise.

USB/eSATA selector switch.

Enclosure power switch.

Luckily, installation was pretty easy to figure out - as no instructions are provided.

Drive mounting method works reasonably well. Reasonable fit & finish. Aluminum case fits drive well and does a good job dissipating heat.

Comes with all needed parts & cables. Even includes a screw driver!

So far, USB & eSATA performance seems typical.

Cons: The functional label on the rear of the enclosure fell off due to insufficient adhesive. Easy enough for me to fix with superglue. This label is important because it covers openings on the rear of the case. Leaving the label off would be a problem because electronics are right near the openings.

No instructions at all.

The light on the front is about 65mmx2mm & glows bright red when idle & bright magenta when active. It's pretty bright & too bright for my tastes. Choosing bright red as the idle color is pretty questionable because most people equate red lights with hardware failure.

Other Thoughts: Green or blue lighting would have been better.

I wish the case's end pieces were black instead of imitation chrome.
