Pros: Relatively easy to swap drives
Decent build quality
Cons: Front panel hard to attach correctly
Front panel difficult to remove without using both hands on a work surface
SATA connection not always reliable
Other Thoughts: I prefer this enclosure to make offsite backup copies in bare drives. More reliable than dock type adaptors, and it has good cooling capacity. Only thing I wish is improvement on the mechanism to hold the front panel, the front panel release mechanism, and reliability of connection. I'm yet to see SATA connection going bad after the drive is properly recognized, but I have to do complete reseating of the hard drive and power cycle to get the drive recognized.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Transcend JetFlash 530 64GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Navy Blue) Model TS64GJF530
Pros: Large capacity, low cost
Cons: Didn't last 3 months of very light use.
Other Thoughts: I usually do research before buying things, buy from reputable retailers, use carefully, take care of things carefully, etc., and my chance of getting a defective product is usually very low. But this USB flash drive lasted maybe 6 uses in 3 months of very light use. I didn't leave them on computers for long, I didn't write a massive amount of data, etc., but the drive is no longer recognized by a computer, despite the blinking blue LED. There are similar reports of the same problem on the internet. Beware.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It works when it does.
Cons: It didn't last a year. I got them replaced, but I had to live without them for a few weeks and also costed me shipping.READ FULL REVIEW
