Pros:

Solid box, seems well built - does what it says operationally.

Cons:

May not give you the protection you think you're getting. See "other thoughts".

Other Thoughts:

Most hard drives (I just sampled the specs for 20 different drives) have a max non-operating temperature of 60-70 °C. That's 140-158 °F. The endpoint for the ATSM E119 Fire Endurance Test used to rate this enclosure occurs when either all temperature sensors in the box (multiple are used) reach an average of 250°F + ambient starting temperature, or any individual temperature sensor exceeds 325°F + ambient starting temperature, or when the there is burnthrough. If your ambient temperature is 70°F, that's failure at 320°F (avg) to 395°F (max). These temperatures are MUCH higher than the max non-operating temperature specified for most hard drives by the manufacturers, so you'll likely need to use the DR service this comes with to get the platters out of the melted drive and get your data back if a fire really tests this box to the rated limit. If you want the drive to survive and remain functional, you need something with a better fire rating (maybe UL 72 Class 125 or 150).
