Eject springs prevent drive contact.10/13/2011 10:29:33 AM

Pros: Trayless, Lights indicate when drives are inserted properly.

Cons: Something seems wrong with the manufacture of this batch. The eject assist springs prevent the drives from making consistent contact with the connectors. I was installing 4 WD re4 2TB drives and could not get them all to connect simultaneously. On the first try I got drive 1 to connect, no connection on drives 2, 3, 4. I powered down and reseated 2, 3, 4. Then lost connection on 1 but connected with 2. Try again 1, 3, 4 up 2 down again. After trying several more times I was not able to maintain connection to all drives at the same time. On close inspection the springs to assist in ejecting the drives prevent the drives from making full contact with the connectors.

Overall Review: Drives fit a little loose. If I removed the springs it would probably work great. I think I will try something else. I tested the drives without the enclosure and they worked flawlessly.

Worked for me11/10/2009 9:35:08 PM

Pros: Durable and seems liquid tight. It works great in the shop for rare text input. Flexible and stays put on various surfaces. Good for a wet/dirty environment where you only need to type a URL or enter some quick data.

Cons: Squishy bricks of silicone for keys make typing unpleasant. No good for anything but hunt and peck, URL entry, and maybe a password or two. Not useful as a real keyboard. Some of the keys are split into multiple blocks.
