Pros: Worked great out of the box in my enclosure and also with my MSI board. 465GB formatted.

Cons: Nothing so far.

Pros: Works as advertised. Small, sturdy construction.

Cons: Swapping HD often could be a problem due to slightly involved install.

Overall Review: For me this is perfect. USB, FW combined in a solid little unit. I don't plan to swap out HDs often--if you swap daily, you might look elsewhere.

Pros: Easy to setup. Recognized my 500GB seagate drive just fine. USB connection works easily with WinXP.

Cons: USB not plug-n-play with my linux distro (ubuntu) out of the box. Haven't tried other than just to plug it in at this point.

Overall Review: Only tried the USB. I am out of SATA slots on my MB.
