NZXT Sentry-2 5.25
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Touch screen, attractive LED screen, ±1°C/F response, comes with 2 additional thermal sensors in case you don't use all 5 channels

Cons: The instructions weren't the best, though it did give detail on how to operate the front panel.

One problem I have is that I have not been able to find a way to set one specific channel to manual and have the others automatic, so far, it seems it's either full auto or full manual. (because really, I want my fan(s) blowing into my video card to speed when intense gaming, and as I've got about 5+1 PSU fans in my rig, it rarely get over 80°F)

Other Thoughts: Another thing, which I can't exactly fault the product itself, is that because it's so light, it doesn't secure into my case. Because it's a tool-less single-sided mount case, I only have access to the right side to secure all 5.25 bays and therefore when I use the touch-screen, the controller get pushed in on the left side around half an inch.

Cavalry CAUM series 1TB 7200RPM 32MB Cache USB External Hard Drive CAUM3701T3
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Strong housing, good price for the size

Cons: When I took apart the unit to upgrade the housing (to eSATA) I found that it was actually labeled as a 5200RPM drive. Had the item already not been out of warranty, I'd be surprised to see if Cavalry would have actually replaced it, or stated I voided the warranty, by opening the enclosure. -3 eggs for misleading information >:(

Other Thoughts: After a few years, of slow transfers, I upgraded to eSATA and saw a major jump from around 28 MB/s via USB, to around 60.

Vantec NexStar TX 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Compact, cheap, and comes with everything you need! (sans hard drive.)

Cons: The screws are so friggin tiny (think watch or glasses screws) and I was lucky they gave me extra screws, because I dropped one and it's lost forever!

I noticed sometimes the USB cable doesn't quite fit all the way in the enclosure so it can lead to an incomplete connection.

Other Thoughts: I bought this enclosure so I could have an external hard drive to use with my Wii, for backing up games(No more swapping discs!) and running apps.
