Looks nice, didn't work

Pros: Nice looking case, the hard disk fit inside well and even started vibrating when I powered up.

Cons: Computers (Win7, Win10) could not see the disk at all when I plugged it in via USB. Tried a known-good disk, still no luck. Didn't have the original packaging for a return under warranty, so threw it away.

Works as expected

Pros: Works as expected

Cons: The drive can come loose from its connection with the enclosure. I used a length of sewing thread to tie it tightly in position.

Pretty good enclosure.

Pros: Works. Transferred 3tb of data using it shortly after receiving it. No issues. Windows 10 recognized it right away. Installing a drive is simple.

Cons: LED is blue and super bright. Illuminates the whole room and keeps you awake at night bright.

USB cord provided is pretty short. Don't expect to hide this thing somewhere out of sight without an extension.

Power switch badly designed, otherwise a decent product

Pros: "Just works." I stuck a drive in there, turned it on, and it works just fine. No surprises, and that's a good thing. I haven't measured throughput, but it seems every bit as fast as other similar enclosures I own.

Cons: Unfortunately, its usefulness is limited by its front power switch. It's a momentary design which *must* be pushed to turn it on. In other words, you can't leave the switch on and then power it up remotely, like from a power strip. The enclosure has to be physically within reach so you can push the button.

Not only that, but it needs a firm push. When it's mounted in the included cradle, you'll push it right off the desk before you turn it on. You need to use two hands, one to hold the enclosure and one to push the button, or do a tricky multi-finger maneuver with one hand to simultaneously hold and push.

In my setup, that's a problem, since my external drives aren't mounted within easy reach.

Why, oh why, the engineers designed it this way is a great mystery to me. They've taken a good, simple product, and made it less useful with a needless complication. Sad!

Other Thoughts: I would not purchase this product again, nor would I recommend it to others, based on bad design.

This is not a "FULL ALUMINUM" Enclosure

Pros: Worked out of the box with a successful USB 3.0 file transfer of 2 gigabytes in 15 seconds. Drive does not flop around in the enclosure but read the cons...inside bracket is cheap plastic.

Cons: Not a full aluminum enclosure. Only aluminum part is the wrap around, excluding the end caps (front and back). The inside bracket cradling the drive is a cheap plastic but the end caps are made of a stronger plastic. Need to be careful not to overtighten the screws holding the drive to the inside bracket. Also, the blue accents are cheap and have no function.

Other Thoughts: I was hoping "Full Aluminum" included the inside bracket for a stronger enclosure and heat dissipation. I'm very disappointed in the advertising on this item which is why the one egg rating to get noticed by reviewers. I would look else where and not buy again. I have an Antec USB 2.0 enclosure that is fantastic (solid aluminum wrap around, inside bracket is metal, end caps are solid plastic, drive automatically powers down, on/off switch)
