3 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertised, but one BIG caveat

Pros: Looks nice, relatively quiet.

Cons: Contains refurbished Seagate drives. Wouldn't trust it for storing any really important data. No RAID support, if you lose either drive you'll lose ALL 4TBs of data.

Other Thoughts: I bought this as a source for cheap 2TB drives. Therefore, I wasn't really concerned about voiding the warranty. After I cracked open the case, I was immediately surprised that the each drive had a couple of carefully-placed 'Warranty Void If Removed' stickers. I also noticed that they had special labels on it which I was already familiar with. The labels have a green edge on it which I immediately recognized as belonging to Seagate drives that have been 'repaired'. I even peeled the sticker off that covered up the words stating that the drives were re-certified to confirm my suspicions. Nevertheless, I yanked them out, reformatted them and they seem to be working OK in my media server...for now. I also placed two 500 GB drives in the Eagle Tech chassis and they were automatically joined as a single 1TB drive

4 out of 5 eggsThe best deal to buy 2TB HDD + enclosurs

Pros: You will get the best price to buy 2TB HDD. seagate 2TB 5900rpm 32Mb buffer sata2 ST32000542AS.
It is very easy to open a case. The condition of a case is totally fine after opening it. U can sell enclosures as well. The speed of HDD is about 110MB/s. not bad. You cannot get warranty after opening since u need to remove a sticker to open this case.

Cons: I don't know since I didn't use this case. I just use HDD in itself

1 out of 5 eggsFrustrated

Pros: It holds more than 2 TB.... (Sort of)

Cons: First, the P/S2 power cord design is just terrible. Why are manufacturers still using this design? The cord is too easily disconnected. How about something that latches in?? I really don't want 4TB of corrupted data. I can't get this drive to write more than 2.5 Terabytes of data without the system freezing and having to reboot. I have tried Ubuntu, Vista and Windows 7, so I know this is not a computer or Operating System issue. Also, being greater than 2TB means you can't use this drive with most wireless routers, media centers or Windows XP, unless you have the 64-bit version. It has a GPT partition table. The older MBR type of partition table cannot support drives over 2TB. So if you try to convert the drive to an MBR type, you essentially create a 2TB drive, and are unable to access the rest of the drive. I have emailed Eagle Tech regarding the inability to write more than 2.5 TB of data to the drive, but have received no response other than a trouble ticket confirmation email.

Other Thoughts: Skip it, and be safe with smaller drives. If I could get my money back, I'd definitely get two 2TB drives instead. If you are fanatical (or paranoid) about your data like I am, look elsewhere.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent - Lots of space

Pros: Lots of space, 4T, enough to store darn near everything.

Cons: Runs a little warm. When I received it, the box was fine but the interior plastic case was damaged, after further inspection, the fan case was broken, so between Eagle and Newegg, the HDD was dropped and the box replace, you missed the fan!

Other Thoughts: After inspection, decided to plug it in and see how she works, works as advertised, I'm not too worried about the condition, if it fails, i have the warranty. All in all a good product. Just be a little more careful.

I ruled out the shipping because the new egg box it shipped in was perfect, had to be manufactures goof.
