1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: I wish I knew

Cons: DOA, RMA'd approved by Coolermaster, sent it to them (was split if the postage was even worth it) they acknowledge reciept, never heard from them again.

Other Thoughts: These things are too cheap to dwell on, I'll never waste the money to RMA something so cheap again

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I didn't even need to format it, it just worked as soon as I got the drive in. All my old data was still there. (using vista x64). Easy to assembly doesn't get too hot, but it kind of depends on the drive. I have a WD 320GB 7600RPM, NTFS.

Cons: Haven't come across any yet...

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't be surprised if it only lasts a year, given the cheap price.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent enclosure.

Pros: Beautiful appearance and design. Easy installation and solid performance. I have been using it with a spare Maxtor 250GB drive for over eight months now and have not experienced any heat issues or data corruption. Simply another solid product from Cooler Master.

Cons: None.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Enclosure Choice

Pros: This enclosure is very aesthetically pleasing with solid construction, easy to install drives into, and does what it's supposed to, so long as the instructions are properly followed (for those with overheating issues). The USB hub in back has come in handy on several occasions. I would highly recommend this enclosure to anybody with spare hard drives lying around.

Cons: The only negative with this enclosure, when Windows XP comes out of standby it doesn't see the drive if it isn't spinning. In which case the drive must be shut off and turned back on (or the USB cable unplugged and plugged back in) for Windows to see it again, but this is a minor inconvenience.

Other Thoughts: As always, Newegg is quick to process and ship orders.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice case

Pros: solid, very strong case. nice and shiny.
good air flow and heat dissipation.

Cons: the usb hub feature is nice with computers and allows you to Daisy chain but it is not compatible with devices that have a host port for other mass storage devices (archos). otherwise its good for the money.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Enclosure

Pros: Tool free installation (The push button isn't that easy to use actually). Pretty cool looking compare with my other enclosures.

Cons: Easy to get fingure print it. Not so easy to swap disks.

Other Thoughts: I read the review and paied extra attention to the heat issue and everything is fine so far. I have been continuely copying data on it for 4+ hours. As the other reviewer said, just make sure to peal the blue pad.

1 out of 5 eggsCORRUPTS DATA

Pros: *Looks Cool

Cons: *Corrupts Data

Other Thoughts: Read the reviews carefully, this product has issues. 40% of the files I copied through this enclosure where corrupted. Contacted support and got no response (8 days waiting now). CoolerMaster should stick to cases (which by the way ARE good).

1 out of 5 eggsI should have read the reviews

Pros: The Guinness Book of World Records will be impressed by how fast it kills disks.

Cons: What a fool - had I read the reviews I wouldn't have bought this trash. My drive lasted four and a half hours. After a reboot - XP reports drive 'failed'.

Other Thoughts: Oh, well, it was only data. >>Heavy sigh.<<

2 out of 5 eggsThere goes my data

Pros: Very pretty and fashion oriented I guess.

Cons: Worked well enough for a month. After that, random files were getting corrupted, which led me to believe that the HD I was using was dying. Replaced it, and had the same issues. After around 5 months of use, pretty much every bit I put into the HD in the enclosure gets corrupted. I just had to erase 14GB of data which I thought was safe there, and in the end, was lost.

Other Thoughts: Terrible luck is my guess. I usually love CoolerMaster products, but this one let me down.
