Worth Every Penny

Thermaltake N0012US Aluminum & Plastic 3.5" Silver SATA USB 2.0 & eSATA External Enclosure
Thermaltake N0012US Aluminum & Plastic 3.5" Silver SATA USB 2.0 & eSATA External Enclosure

Pros: I have 2 of these that i have bought over the past 2 yrs. I used them both while traveling and now they are sitting on my desk holding my hard drives with all my back-up files. Never had any issue with installing the drives, the fans are still working fine, no noise at all and the blue LED lights make it look great.

Cons: When I was traveling I noticed the power connector would come out, it doesn't have a locking connector so that tends to happen, not a big deal happened 2 times in the 2 yrs I have had both.

Overall Review: I would highly recommend these HD enclosures, I saw a few people complaining about how well its built well I traveled with mine for a year and got maybe I scratch on it, maybe they should take better care of expensive computer equipment.... and as for the way to format your HD... if you don't know how to do something that simple in windows your probably too lazy to Google it so you shouldn't buy this...Thermaltake is not responsible for you not knowing what you’re doing.

Rosewill Armer RX304-APU3-35B - External 3.5" SATA III 6 Gb/s Hard Drive Enclosure - USB 3.0 & eSATA Connection, Aluminum Body, 80 mm Variable Speed Fan with On / Off Switch, LED Display Panel Supports UASP
Rosewill Armer RX304-APU3-35B - External 3.5" SATA III 6 Gb/s Hard Drive Enclosure - USB 3.0 & eSATA Connection, Aluminum Body, 80 mm Variable Speed Fan with On / Off Switch, LED Display Panel Supports UASP

Pros: Sturdy enclosure bright LED readout of temperature RPM speed of the fan.

Cons: I bought a total of 3 and 1 not only didn't work but it corrupted a five terabyte hard drive, upon closer inspection the outer casing was cracked and the fan was rubbing against the enclosure itself making a clicking noise.

Overall Review: I have bought many hard drive enclosures over the years and I have never had any data loss when put in the hard drive in and getting it set up, I thought this time would be no different but I ended up losing a large amount of data collected over the last 5 years, some of it not replaceable. Live and learn I guess, I will not be buying another enclosure from this brand.

Great Game

Mass Effect 2 PC Game
Mass Effect 2 PC Game

Pros: If u played Mass effect, then this has everything mass effect has but on steroids...It feels like they upgraded the movement to be a lot more stable too, and the story is great just like the first. Now i can't wait for 3..

Cons: Had some problems with it running at first, apparently the engine has a problem with my on board sound device....Easy fix though, i just downloaded the latest patch.

Overall Review: I was my own fault for not getting the patch right away, i was just excited to play the game.
