Pros: Good enclosure and I like having the separate options for eSATA or USB. I bought this after upgrading my old 1TB drive to a 4TB. I then wanted to turn the 1TB drive into an external. Drive to drive transfers were fast. I was able to get about 30MB/s out of USB and 80+MB/s out of eSATA.
Enclosure is almost entirely metal, it definitely doesn't feel cheap.
Cons: Assembly wasn't difficult, but probably my only gripe is it's assembled using more screws than what's entirely necessary. Design wise, they could have done a better job of a tooless design that would make it more friendly to swapping drives out.
Fan is also noticeable when sitting on top of the desk, but you can always turn it off. Having it sit on my tower underneath my desk in my office, I don't notice it at all.
Regardless, no eggs deducted for any of those things. They're just minor little things that may be important to someone else.
Pros: Speeds are quite good for a platter drive. Price per GB value for this drive is very good as well. It does the job and performance wise, I have no complaints.
Cons: VERY LOUD! I haven't had a hard drive that was this loud since the 90s from my old 486 machine. At times it vibrates my case because it's so loud.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good price, good drive. It spins, it reads, it writes! Not much more that you could ask for.
Cons: None so far.READ FULL REVIEW
