USB 3.0 support
Tough metal case
Stylish construction; this won't look bad on your desk!
Awesome looking blue LEDs
They even ship a screwdriver to open it up!
The blue LEDs may not mesh well with your current setup, especially if you have any LEDs that aren't blue.
AC adapter may not be for everyone; this is required for the higher power draw of a full size desktop hard drive.
SATA III is not supported.
I recently upgraded my PC to a 128 GB SSD and a 7200 RPM 2 TB HDD, which left me with an old WD 1 TB Green Drive I didn't want in my array any more. I got this so I could use it for backups.
The case is a tough metal construction, with a grating on the front to allow for air flow, along with a fan on the side to keep the drive cool during use. Blue LEDs will mesh well with an PC that has blue LEDs set up. This enclosure is fast, allowing for connection of SATA I and II drives with a USB 3 external interface.
A foot is shipped with this unit, as it is intended to be left on your desk, never really intended to be unplugged. If you're not going to be using it, a power switch on the back allows you to shut off the unit to conserve electricity.
Overall, I am very pleased with this unit, and would recommend it to anyone else who wants a good reliable enclosure. The enclosure does not feel cheap; quite the contrary, it feels quite luxurious! The cherry on top was that I was expecting to have to fetch a screwdriver to open it, but no, SABRENT packed one with the unit! I was so pleased to see this little addition, and definitely recommend their products to anyone.
