Pros: easy installation

Cons: after inserting the harddrive and plugging in the ide and power plugs, closing the case was a little bit stiff, but not bad.

Other Thoughts: great enclosure at a great price, with both USB 2.0 and Firewire.

Cheap

Pros: None

Cons: The dang thing broke after about 20 minutes of use. The lights turn on but the hard drive doesn't spin. The parts making up the enclosure are hot glued together. It is an overall cheap hard drive enclosure.

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this product to anybody.

Average quality

Pros: Solid enclosure.. Average assembly.

Cons: No instructions for assembly, only the USB port works! FireWire ports don't work, tried multiple cables none worked. No air vents to circulate air.

Other Thoughts: One has to be technically oriented to figure out the assembly, took me a few minutes without damaging the unit. Defeated the purpose of ordering this for my Mac. Power cable was damaged, had to use spare power cable. No tips on possible jumper config. of a hard disk. You are on your own.

Firewire doesn't work under XP SP3

Pros: Works well in USB. Had no problems assembling the enclosure, unlike some of the reviewers.

Cons: Due to the way it's designed, the blue LEDs are blindingly bright when viewed at an angle other than head-on - had to put some electrical tape over the front. Firewire does NOT work under XP SP3, which stinks because that was the main reason I bought this enclosure. Instruction sheet made no mention of the need to jumper the drive as a master, but fortunately other reviews here helped with that. Front panel design in general is kind of blinged-out for my liking, but that's just personal taste (and I knew what I was getting from the photos).

Other Thoughts: This product is one of the very few duds I've ever gotten from Newegg...I'm surprised the reviews are mostly positive. If you want just a USB IDE enclosure, there's cheaper/less tacky models, and if you need firewire and you're running XP, well, keep looking.

So far, So Great

Pros: Low price, compact (they still could have made it about an inch shorter), nice looking

Cons: Gets a little warm, but that's expected with a hard drive.
Other than that, nothing.

Other Thoughts: This is my 3rd Bytecc item to purchase. All have worked perfect.
With the little extra space, a little bullet fan might be a nice add-on. Might have to see if I can add one myself.

Pros: Had a fast response when transfering files.

Cons: The power cable had a short at the conversion box.
The power cable did not have a good connection at the enclosure.

Great Enclosure

Pros: I like this enclosure and have 3 of them. All work very well except for the last one purchased which I will describe next. I have installed 500GB drives in each enclosure and installed Mac OSX 10.4.11 so that I can use them as boot drives for my Desktop Macs via FireWire. Have had no problems with the first 2 enclosures. However, the last enclosure that I purchase in January will not boot my computers. All enclosures have identical drives and are setup the same way. All in all i think it is a very good enclosure.

Cons: I have contacted Bytecc describing the problem above with the last enclosure and have had no response. Very disappointing. I have swapped out the drives from the other enclosures and still can't boot from the last enclosure. I suspect that there may be a problem with the circuitry. I think Bytecc Tech Support should respond to their end users. At this time I cannot recommend this enclosure to my customers.

Other Thoughts: I agree with the other posts that the Bytecc installation instructions are very inadequate. They do tell you to set the drive to Master in the lower left corner of their 4" x 6" install sheet, if you can read it. However, Newegg is great and I will continue to purchase from them in the future.
