2 out of 5 eggsHard to Recommend

Pros: Easy to mount drive and assemble case.

Cons: Power plug that goes into rear of case is loose and causes frequest power loses.
Does not recognize SATA connection to one of my PCs.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Its cheap.

Cons: Loose power connector, loses power when power cable is moved slightly. Have to keep it very still. Fixable if you find out what is loose.

Tiny fan is very noisy.

No Drive activity light.

Other Thoughts: I reccomend spending a tiny bit more on a better enclosure.

3 out of 5 eggsKINGWIN SS-350S-BK ARE NOISY

Pros: Drives run well. Throughput is as expected.

Cons: More noisy than I would like. Internal fan is not needed and when fans are running, you can definatly tell. You also cant stack these drives because they get to hot. I will be looking to replace these External enclosures with quieter ones.

3 out of 5 eggsCheep but works sort of.

Pros: Well the pro side it takes one less drive out of my overloaded case 4x300gig which takes load and heat off of the CHEEP power supply i'm running on.

The case is very simple and has one rather large fan in the back along with a green LED and a power switch.

Cons: After 2 days of using this i had to re-solder the power connection leads back to the pcb board. This isn't that big of deal for me but i'm sure alot of you out there would be rather mad about that.

Other Thoughts: this is probably the lowest cost sata drive caddy in its class, it works and thats about it. REMEBER to check connection types there is a diffrence in sata types for internal and external connections.

4 out of 5 eggsCost Effective and Quiet

Pros: low price; quiet, quiet , quiet; aluminum case; fan; ease of use; stackable

Cons: small fan and fan location

Other Thoughts: this case in an absolute breeze to set up. you should be up an running in under 5 min. no corroded contacts, no squeaks. sure the case is a little cheap, but it's $xx.

Your drive will get warm to the touch under heavy use but it shouldn't get hot. i have a 7200RPM drive in it. the fan location should be under the drive not at the back of the case. but there are cases at twice this price that have no fan at all!

3 out of 5 eggsHole too small for some plugs

Pros: Inexpensive. Easy to disassemble.

Cons: Hole for the SATA plug is too small for larger, heavy duty plugs.

Other Thoughts: External power supply. Uses SATA1, not eSATA plug.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, but cheap!

Pros: Nice from factor. Once you tweek the case, work the connectors and put it all back together its quiet, has a good fan and is compact. Fan keep it nice and cool too.

Cons: Thin case, need to bend the top and bottom cover plates inward(just a tad) to keep them pushing against the silver aluminum side pieces which have the little dimple that holds them in outward from the center of the case.

Other Thoughts: Got it in today after reading all the previous reviews. Loaded my Maxtor Diamond max drive, used the CD software the Maxtor came with and installed a drive.

Yes, this thing is cheap, but its a good kind of cheap in that it works. TIP!!! pull the input bay apart and plug the cables off an on about 20 times- I bi-passed the unit with a SATA cable direct and it still had problem of NOT being recongnized in the OS. But after working the connectors a few times thay all started working-- oxidation at the connector was my problem and I don't think the SATA jumper cable is bad, just oxidized. The cables all worked after this and the unit did also.

4 out of 5 eggsSATA solution

Comments: I like this case overall, but I do have some issues with it. After a half a year the fan starts to wear out and make noise. I simply removed them and used an external solution. My other gripe is that the aluminum will rattle sometimes but that can be fixed with some drops of glue to hold the sides in place. As for the rear slot issues people speak of, just dont use an angled SATA cable.

3 out of 5 eggsDoes what is needed of it

Comments: Not the fanciest or most well designed enclosure, but it works. I think I had the same problem with the SATA passthru as the others - circumventing it made things a lot smoother. The case is a pretty rudimentary design and isn't the highest quality construction, but, like I said before, it gets the job done. Recommended if you don't mind something basic and are willing to live with a bad passthru (and no HD activity light if you do in fact get a bad passthru.)
