Cheap way to expand your drive bays 7/17/2019 1:41:07 PM

Pros: Allows you to buy and use internal HDDs even if you don't have a desktop with available drive bays

Much cheaper than a NAS

Cons: More drive bays would be nice

Overall Review: This product has worked perfectly for me so far

Reliable hard drive box. 6/14/2019 2:27:29 AM

Pros: I own three of these. The most recent one uses a different power supply. The older ones had power supplies that have a green light to indicate they're on. This one doesn't. I prefer it that way. It's pointless to have a light on that.
Holds hard drives of different types with no issues.

Cons: People have complained about the noise from the fans. I don't know how they could be quieter. That's the nature of fans.
I do not like the lights flashing on the box. I wish there was a toggle to disable the lights.
And the USB cables provided could have been longer. I end up having to purchase longer cables every time.
Would like it if there was a filter that could be installed so the box wouldn't suck up all the dust in the room.

Overall Review: Don't bother using e-sata. Just use the USB 3.

SATA Port Multipliers Are Not a Good Solution 10/11/2018 2:07:37 PM

Pros: The device works as advertised ... it will hold cool, and

Cons: Installing hard drives is a little unintuitive, and there are parts that are easily lost.

JBOD SATA port multipliers are a non-ideal solution if you're creating a drive array using zfs or some other software-RAID file-system. Any delay on one drive will be reflected across all drives, making the problem drive nearly impossible to locate.

If one drive starts running slow or gets full, all drives on the interface have the same issues.

Overall Review: If you want a storage array on the cheap, you need one SATA port per drive.

Fantastic solution for large storage needs 6/21/2018 7:21:49 AM

Pros: This unit worked beautifully right out of the box. Plugged in (4) 8TB hard drives (preformatted) and it recognized them just fine. Be sure to plug them into USB 3.0 ports as it will double your transfer speeds from regular 2.0 ports. I'll be ordering at least two more of these units in the near future! Great job, Mediasonic.

Cons: Could not get eSATA to recognize on the computer...but not an issue since I was planning to use USB 3.0 anyway.

Overall Review: Love this product. Would highly recommend it to others needing a larger size storage array - max (4) 8TB drives.

Really great for 2 years - then flakey 1/3/2017 8:45:16 AM

Pros: Worked well for the first 2 years
Very inexpensive

Cons: - started locking up in 2 hours to 3 days consistently after 2 years of use.

Overall Review: This compact 4 bay single SATA (requires multiplex external SATA port on computer) worked flawlessly for 2012 to 2014. Then it started locking up every few days. I didn't have time to troubleshoot it until now (end of 2016). I bought a new SIL 3132 SATA card which I tested with several Rosewill SATA drive docks and experienced no lockups over weeks of testing. Then I connected the Probox and continued to see lockups anywhere between 2 hours and 3 days. I took the drives out and put in 4 brand new WD blues - still locks up by the third day. It's definitely a flaw in this unit. I see others reporting the same. Why more than one star? At the time I purchased this in 2012 for $120 I was expecting such a product to be more expensive, perhaps twice as much. I'm considering buying another one to replace it because I haven't found an alternative

Nice device 11/6/2016 11:40:28 AM

Pros: Can use USB 3.0 or Esata, can control fan speeds

Cons: I am experiencing what Jeremy B. experience, the device powers down every now and then. I have the device plugged into a local port on the computer and not an external device. I am thinking plugged into a local port there should be no dropouts as there would be from an external hub. I will be calling to see what my options are.
