This review is from: CRU 8600-5002-5500 DataPort 25 SL Slim-Line Removable Drive Enclosure
Pros: - metal construction, both the carrier and frame are made from stainless steal with durable plastic guides and faceplates. - reliable connections, over 2 years with every weekday swaps and no connectivity issues. - floppy drive size, allows you to put it into those no longer used floppy bays. - quality guide pin aligned docking connector
Cons: - key lock can be a little finicky sometimes - lock bar that holds drive in place on one of our frames can sometimes not engage properly requiring the carrier to be pushed in a little more.
Other Thoughts: Your SATA controller should support hot swapping for best performance. We have two drive frames and 10 carriers for a two week rotating backup scheme. The only problem we have is that Windows Server 2003 will not treat SATA drives as removable media and always seems to have a hold on some file that was copied to the drive making it difficult to cleanly dismount a drive. Mostly it's a file that is not part of our backup data so I have had no trouble swapping drives without a clean dismount. This is not an issue with the enclosure as far as I know but rather with the way Windows treats SATA drives.
