5 out of 5 eggs Awesome replacement for SBS or Home Server 04/12/2016

This review is from: Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials 64B 1-2CPU

Pros: No data deduplication.

Cons: The pinpoint info or add-ons seem to be forgotten afterthought.

Other Thoughts: Works great in the many installs I have done. I use it myself for my personal use.

Vantec NexStar 3 3.5

Pros: I have used this one and a red IDE to USB previously. Never had a drive fail in either enclosure. This one was used every night for a server backup and never an issue. The largest size disk I used in it was a 1TB WD Black.
Seems to dissipate heat well.

Cons: I tried a 3TB WD Green in it and only allows 746GB. I have tried this setup on a couple computers and the result is the same. I also tried a 1TB ADATA SSD in this enclosure and it did not work. It would not allow the computer to see the drive under no circumstance.

Other Thoughts: Somewhere out there is a firmware update that would probably help. I am also aware that it just may be hardware obsolete. Great product for the use I needed it for. I recommend Vantec enclosures. I just need to get a newer one.

Pros: Still running in a old Compaq hand me down. Survived many airports and many roadtrips.

Cons: Only 60 Gigs. Was big enough back in the day.
