This review is from: AMS VENUS DS3 DS-PL3507CBK Aluminum 3.5" USB 2.0 & FireWire 400 External Enclosure
I like the way the internal power connector for the hard drive can be adjusted to fit the hard drive better. I like that it has two types of USB connection ports and the fire wire connection on the back. Good power supply design too!
When formatting my new WD 500GB HDD (purchased also fron Newegg for this case!), first 3% finished in just a few minutes, 4% took another 20 minutes, 5% about an hour. Never made it to 6%. Hard drive was doing a sequence of clicking noises, spinning down, back up and the same series of clicking noises again. Put HDD in the computer and it formatted just fine and is functioning well. So, it appears this enclosure is defective.
Luckily, the rebate on this item covers most of the cost of this enclosure. I'm still out the shipping costs it took to ship it to me. I'm not about to pay more shipping to send it back! If you want a great external case, go for the Rosewill, also here on newegg. You WON'T be dissapointed!
