Stylish casing but does not recognize my hdd.

Pros: - Sturdy metal casing
- Fast shipping
- Good packaging

Cons: - No support from Vantec webpage. No drivers for this device. Many drivers on the page are for Win 7-8 but nothing for windows 10.
- Device is detected as a usb storage but my hdds ( tried with an old seagate barracuda and a new WD blue ) are not accessible.
- Requires two separate wire for electricity and data transfer.

Other Thoughts: - Will be trying again to make it works but considering returning the device.
- Will update if it ever works.

Manufacturer Response:
Hi Simon,

Sorry about the problem. USB storage does not require any drivers since the release of Windows XP, it definitely does not require any drivers for Window 7/8/8.1/10 because it is already built into the OS. If the device is detected, you might need to look in disk management to see why the drive is not showing. Please contact Vantec support for assistance. We can be reached at support@vantecusa.com email.

Thank you for looking into our products. We do value your patronage.

Best Regards,
Vantec Thermal Technologies Customer Service Team.

Excellent Product

Pros: I have two of these and love them. Attractive design, nicely finished, lots of airflow for cooling, a proper ON/OFF switch and an optional stand that is very stable. Overall very impressive at this price point.

I use these with SBCs - one running PLEX and the other running OpenMediaVault and both use 4TB drives with no issues (the SBCs both have clear plastic enclosures and I attached them to the outside of the cases with VHB tape which makes for very tidy and compact setups). The HDD simply drops into the drawer which is held in place with 2 screws which makes drive access super easy

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Recommended and would buy again

Great product

Pros: This enclosure is solid and simple to assemble. It keeps my drive nice and cool. It's also inexpensive.

Cons: The included USB3 cable is only one meter long. I would have preferred two meters but I don't think that's enough to knock off an egg.

Other Thoughts: Highly recommended.

VANTEC HDD Enclosure

Pros: Super easy assembly - (1) slide the HD into the tray, secure with 4 included screws; (2) slide tray into enclosure, secure with 2 included screws. Plug incluced USB 3.0 and power cables into enclosure and computer. Turn on. Done.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: This is my first enclosure since the IDE era of HDs, so it wasn't intuitive that the enclosure won't power up unless connected to a power up computer by the USB cable so I thought "is this DOA?" at first. (This is not stated plainly in the instructions.)

This is a fantastic External bay. I have like 6 of them and this is the best.

Pros: Man I want another one of these. USB 3.0 hall but fast. I love the open front with the nice blue light. I also like the wall wart supply as opposed to the larger brick type of power supplies. I had a feeling this was the one to get.

Cons: none

Good product, does the job, easily, simply

Pros: Super easy to connection, screw in, and use.

Cons: None really

Other Thoughts: I would definitely recommend this. I bought it to recover my 3.5" hard drive from a dead computer. I used it to get all my data off the hard drive and back it up onto my new PC. It does the job great. Couldn't have been simpler to connect up the SATA connectors together. Easy to power up and use. It was really a breath of fresh air, as I usually expect to mess around with this kind of stuff for hours.

Metal Casing - Good Size - Nice Features

Pros: ***UPDATE 8/3/2016***
(We originally used these enclosures with WD GREEN 4TB Drives. We have recently upgraded to 6TB Drives and wanted to UPDATE our review to let you know that they also Support 6TB just fine)

1) Metal Casing which helps dissipate heat
2) Vented in the front
3) Nice Blue LED for Hard Drive Activity
4) USB 3.0
5) SATA III
6) On / Off switch
7) Easy Installation
8) Never lost a connection

Cons: 1) Plastic inner tray (Why when everything else is metal?)

Other Thoughts: Newegg was selling this for $25.99 and when I was ready to purchase it was no longer listed and only sold through a 3rd party on Newegg for more. I was able to find it cheaper elsewhere but wanted to write a review as it is a very good product. Its hard to find a metal case with on/off switch and Supports USB 3.0 and SATA III at this price. I transferred 1TB of movies in a 24 hour period and the case stayed quite cool for all the work that it did. It never dropped a connection which a lot of these do.
