Pros: Great design!

Cons: The company is no longer in business. BUYER BEWARE! They have no e-mail, telephone number or website. It's all gone. To bad they made great products.

Overall Review: I own many of these units. Since the company is no longer in business I will have to trash them.

Highly Dissappointed 12/13/2010 1:20:06 PM

Pros: Nice Physical Design, feels sturdy & well built.

Cons: After using it a few times, device stopped detecting any IDE drives (purchased in Dec. of 2008). SATA drives are still detected.

Internal cables that plug up to drives are placed awkwardly and do not allow for the drives to "rest" comfortably within the enclosure.

When connected to USB 2.0 ports I still receive prompts that this unit could perform better if plugged into a USB 2.0 port. (doesnt matter what machine, my custom built PC or my HP Elitebook)

Overall Review: I purchased this in Dec 2008, after a few uses it stopped detecting IDE Drives. If it wasnt for the fact it still detects SATA drives this would be in the trash. I purchased this item due to all the great reviews but was disappointed.

Does the job 10/30/2010 6:47:06 PM

Pros: Looks good, well made, can use both SATA and IDE drives, and has been running since April 2010. Easy to install a SATA drive and only a little bit of a pain when using an IDE drive.

Cons: Power LED a bit bright and useage LED a bit dim. A bit cramped when using an IDE drive due to cable placement. Plastic tray does not shed the heat though I haven't had any overheat failures. Net effect - 1 egg off.

Overall Review: I have been using this as a music storage drive for my media center PC, so it has been running almost continously since I got it and so far I haven't had any of the issues other reviewers have complained of. For the price I think this has been an excellent product.

Solid. 8/3/2010 2:25:30 PM

Pros: Solid, sturdy unit. Not cheap like other reviews I have read. So solid makes ya wanna smash it on the floor for some reason.

Cons: Dim activity light, no fan, USB 2.0.

Overall Review: I needed a unit to be IDE and SATA. USB 2 sucks bad. Slow. Moving 400 gigs of raw HD video is lengthy. About the fan thing. If you are planning to use 24/7 why don't you just install the drive in the computer? Works great!
