Pros: Cheap and Looks nice
Cons: Worst instruction manual I've ever seen.
Constantly goes to sleep (just shuts off) even when the computer is on.
Does not automatically install drivers and no instructions on how to actually get it working.
Other Thoughts: You might as well just toss the instruction manual and figure it out by pressing things and seeing what they do. They even have the power cord port labeled as a button in the instructions... How?!
The best thing you can do is just disable the "smart power sync switch" to prevent it from shutting down as soon as you power it on.
To get it to actually work, you can pretty much just anticipate contacting the company.
I've setup several NAS systems and have had no problems until I tried this one. Really wish I would have gone with another enclosure.
Pros: It IS technically a hard drive.
Cons: It sucks at being a hard drive. I had purchased 2 of these. Both failed. Also, what kind of hard drive runs this hot?! Had fans on high. One of the fans went out, hard drive failed. Other still has fan that works but the drive failed anyway. Lost everything. No support for these drives can be found anywhere. Maybe they went out of business or something.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The drive is extremely fast! Exactly the same speeds as described. I'm running to in raid 0 and after over a year of ownership, I can say that these are the fastest, most reliable drives I've ever owned (I go through a lot... I build computers). Over a year and I still can't get over how fast they are :)
