Avatar Sirius S701-R2A-1 ARM Cortex-A9 1GB DDR3 Memory 4GB NAND Flash 7.0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I got this on sale for $70. It works great. Other competitors are much higher priced.

The screen resolution is as good as higher priced models.

Cons: Battery runs down quickly. Lasts 6-7 hrs at full charge

Other Thoughts: If this lasts for a couple years and the reviews for this brand is still good, I would buy a replacement.

Vantec NexStar 3 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Light weight, looks cool. usb and esata do work.

Cons: power adapter fail. I needed to run this as an esata external drive without usb power available. So, I bought the power adapters on secondary market that were advertised to work with the device. They were awful.
So, It would have been really nice if Vantec would produce reliable power adapters that shipped with this enclosure.

Other Thoughts: I boot into linux using external hard drives from various hardware at various office locations. The machines have esata ports but may not have enough available usb ports to supply power. I was hoping this encasement would provide a cheap and lightweight replacement for a couple enclosures I bought a few years ago that began to fail. However, Vantec did not have a power adapter for it and I bought a compaible one on the secondary market. It was awful. So, my overall rating for is minus a star for the devide having a power input, but no power supply that could supply stable power

ORICO XG-2518SUS3P-BK 2.5'' External HDD Docking Station with USB3.0 HUB
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Stable Foundation. Power supply works.

Cons: Not much. A little bulky.

Other Thoughts: I use it primarily for eSata right now. I have redunant stations for a variety of machines so that I can always boot into the same OS regardless of hardware.
