Pros: This inexpensive case is unobtrusive and seems to do the job. I'm getting 60 MB/s read and 120 MB/s write out of a Seagate ST3000DM001.
Cons: The case is pretty cheesy. It does not require tools, but I'm not sure how long these plastic tabs will hold out. It is already a looser fit from having opened it once to install a hard drive.
Other Thoughts: I wish I could find a simply designed and quality built USB3<->SATAIII case.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: These drives perform flawless up until the point where they choke.
Cons: Of the 9 drives, of this model, that I have purchased in the last 2 years, 5 of them have failed.
Other Thoughts: Seagate and the associated resellers have been very good about replacing these failed drives, but the rate of failure is just too high to recommend this unit.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The texture on the plastic surfaces is really nice.
Cons: As previously stated, there is no Speed Dial on this machine. You CAN, however, enter numbers into a Phone Book with 100 possible entries.
From there, you can select one of those numbers to start a fax. The process, though involves pressing 4 or 5 different buttons anywhere from 7 to 106 times--way more complicated than keying in a 10 digit number and hitting FAX.
Other Thoughts: HP Tech Support was not very helpful, as it flummoxed them as well. After several hours on the phone, we finally figured out how it works, and that there really is no *speed* dial. Overseas tech support has very little ability to feed back to product design, so hopefully my remarks, coming from a consumer, might lead to a firmware update that fixes this mess of an interface.READ FULL REVIEW
