5 out of 5 eggsRemovable HDD

Pros: Bought these to use in a CPA office to remove Hard Drives at the end of each workday after a break in. We use these along with TrueCrypt to Encrypt the entire drive. These work like a charm.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsLove It

Pros: Inexpensive, very sturdy, brilliant design. Acceptable cooling performance for 7200 RPM drives in an air conditioned room. Doesn't subject the hard drive to repeated mating cycles and uses more durable connectors than regular SATA.

Cons: The fan is a droning 40x15mm from some unknown Chinese manufacture, but that comes with the territory on cheaper caddies. I've definitely gotten worse from other companies. You could probably make a good show of silencing it with a ~4k RPM 40x28mm.

Other Thoughts: CRU and Newegg do a horrible job marketing these things. It's very arguably the best product on the market. Don't make me read PDFs on the manufacture's web site and pull part numbers to figure that out.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Device

Pros: I have used these devices for my 20+ hard drives for a considerable time without a single problem. Inexpensive!

Cons: Frequently leaves the cover behind when drive is remove. Not a big problem but annoying.

Other Thoughts: We have a music trading group with over 20 users and they all use these devices to exchange files.
