Hit or miss

Pros: looks nice
worked when I first got it.

Cons: I have had this enclosure for a couple years. I used it for about a year until It corrupted my one HDD.
I put it to the side for a while and attempted to troubleshoot periodically why it was giving me errors when it said the HDD was still good.

Tried it with two new HDD's and it did the same thing. I went to hit the power switch in back and the darn thing wiped my drives. they were completely unallocated drives and I lost all of my data on them.

Works great for me as an NAS

Pros: I got an ASUS router with a USB plug, so I thought I'd try this enclosure out as an NAS. Works great for me. I like the 'jumbo' option. I put 2 1TB drives in it, flipped the jumbo switch, and it looks like a 2TB drive. The enclosure is well made and easy to load with 3.5" drives. I store movies and TV shows on this network-attached drive and am able to share and access this drive from every device on my network. It's seamless and has been up and running 24/7 with no problems for 6-7 months.

Cons: It's only USB 2.0, but the router is only 2.0 as well, so I'm not really losing anything with this application.

Overall Review: I'm going to get another one and use it for the same thing.

JDOB oddities.

Pros: I like these a lot, I took some tape and covered the lights so I could sleep at night instead of trying to count bytes. the fan on off switch is a nice touch.

Cons: The fans do not switch off when i PC puts the drive in power saving mode. and if you use JDOB, do not take the drives out of the R2 later. even if you take both drives out and put them into the same computer. Windows will not see the JDOB, nor will it see the two drives as having partition at all, you will be asked to format them. but as long as you don't screw with them you can just pop them back into the R2 and all should be well.

Overall Review: smarter power features would be nice, allow windows to fully power the device down when not in use.

Overall Good Purchase

Pros: Simple setup and use. Worked perfectly for almost 3 years.

Cons: Would like to see them updated with usb 3.0.

My power supply died after 3 years.

Overall Review: Used with both a PC and with an Asus 66u router as a media server. virtually no setup is required. Will probably upgrade to their 4 slot version at some point.

Great Enclosure for the Price

Pros: The enclosure runs very cool with the fan on and two Western Digital Red HDDs.
The fan is very quiet, and is barely audible.

The case, when in JBOD mode shows both HDDs individually.
The JBOD/Big mode switch is on the inside of the enclosure, but is very easy to access once the rear four screws are taken out.

The design is very solid and there are no loose or rattling parts internally or externally; probably one of the best external enclosures I've seen in terms of quality.
When the fan is off, the unit will get warm when both drives are running and active, but if the drives are set to spin down, then the enclosure will get no hotter than room temperature and is totally silent.

The outside has a brushed-metal look to it, and the plastic stand has a good, solid fit.

Cons: The JBOD/Big mode switch is internal, but this is only a minor inconvenience at most. The maximum supported drive capacity (per bay) is 2TB, which is beginning to show it's age, especially with 3-6TB HDDs available now.

Overall Review: This works great in JBOD-mode with an ODROID-U3, Debian Linux, and MDADM RAID1.
I have yet to see any issue at all with the enclosure, and the activity lights on the front are very neat.
