This review is from: Antec TrueQuiet 120 120mm Case Fan
Pros: Great fan! Running at high speed the fan makes less noise than any case fan I have used over the past twenty years. The rubber mounting setup eliminates vibration and makes for a very simple installation.
Other Thoughts: The rubber mounting pins can be reused if you don't trim off the excess rubber after pulling them through. Would rather have black rubber isolators instead of the orange.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Currently utilizing 4 of these for backups, HTPC storage, and a NAS device connected to a router. No problems with Windows 7/32 computers recognizing the devices although when using the esata connection it has been necessary on occasion to use the "scan for new hardware" option in the control panel. The fan definitely keeps the hard drive cool, but if the noise bothers you it is nice to have a switch to turn it off. I have not experienced any recording problems due to wake from sleep on my HTPC (W7/32, WMC and an HDHR3 tuner). Esata provides very fast backups and file transfers. USB backups and transfers are slower, but useful if you have an older computer without an esata connection. The plug from the power supply to the enclosure is very secure which can be a problem for external enclosures that have multiple pin connectors.
Cons: Those who will be swapping hard drives in and out of their enclosure may be better off with a docking station.
Other Thoughts: The newer version of this device has a USB3 connection.READ FULL REVIEW
