Vantec NexStar 3 3.5" IDE to USB 2.0

Pros: Worked perfectly out the box. Didn't even have to use the install disk to install the unit. Used 3.5 500gig WD worked as soon as I plugged it in. Aluminum finish does work. It was freezing cold when I unpacked out the box.

Cons: No cons really. You just need to be very careful when installing a hard drive. The parts are very delicate. You have to be gentle when plugging it in and bolt it down. Supplied IDE wire is your conventional ribbon wire. You need to be gentle pushing everything together to close.

Other Thoughts: Installed on Rig with Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Poor Customer Service

Pros: Looks good

Cons: I have come back to revisit my initial review of this product. The power supply failed after about 2 years and Vantec wanted nearly $20.00 to replace the power pack. These enclosures, while nice to look at are only as good as the power supply which in my opinion is worthless. I would no longer recommend this product.

Other Thoughts: Stay away from Vantec as the power supplies have limited life and if you are beyond warranty, it is not worth the expense to replace the power pack. For the price you can pick up a new Rosewill.

Meh

Pros: It works great except for one flaw that is very annoying.

Cons: The one I got, if you touch the power cord at all (even moving the unit slightly) it could lose power for a split second causing it to unmount and remount on your computer. This has caused me a lot of stress and while I haven't yet replaced the enclosure because of it I definitely will in the future.
