Mediasonic ProBox K32-SU3 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Decent pricing, easy disassembly/assembly, simple design

Cons: Ventilation inadequate, as the enclosure keeps drive powered on and spinning nonstop (no power-saving spin-down).
Enclosure seems to be prone to occasional device recognition issues, requiring to power on for 15-30sec before connecting (as if the enclosure's controller needs time to read from the drive before it is usable) otherwise device connection errors are seen. This is problematic after reboots.

XIGMATEK Secure III Extreme Speed Docking Station CPH-SPHET-U08 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Works reliably. Priced well

Cons: Inserting drives doesn't feel "natural" - you have to make a slight effort to align the drive properly with the connector, as it's easy to tilt the drive in the wrong direction. I would expect a "full size" 3.5" drive to fit "snug".

Seagate Expansion 3TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Good price.

Cons: Original purchase - disk failed within 9 months of purchase. Replaced by RMA.
RMA refurb - enclosure failed to function less than a year after replacement, requiring that the drive be removed and placed in another enclosure purchased separately.

Other Thoughts: Warranty on external drives is lousy - only 1 year. This might just be the industry standard, but it's still lousy.
