Too Cool 1/7/2009 3:16:27 PM

Pros: Good Quality, upgradable external hard drive enclosure (comes empty of course). easy install.

Cons: The only con is the stupid cables they supply. FOUR USB PORTS would be taken up if I used those cables. I just plugged in a single USB cable from another bus powered drive and it works. single USB port. oh and the driver CD is for WIN98. haha, but no driver is necessary because its plug and play eSATA. So most people will disregard the driver disk

Overall Review: The hard drive is removed from the bay by pushing it, releasing the grip mechanism and allowing extraction. I don't believe it explains that anywhere. So I thought I'd add it to my review for others looking for this info.

oh and use a different USB cable, not the four supplied

Great concept and practical 1/2/2009 10:08:16 PM

Pros: Practical and convenient. Great for numbers of media storage solutions from back-up to file transfers to having a mobile OS drive or repair drive. Drive case is of good quality.

Cons: Somewhat frail bay made of plastic. Plastic locking mechanism. Would have been 5 stars if these were of high impact plastic or heavier grade alloys. [I would have paid $5 more for greater durability] Not designed for continuous insertion and removal. I doubt it will handle much beyond 1000 "careful" insertion and removals. Perhaps 1/10th of that or less if handled brutishly.

Overall Review: This is a fantastic concept. Its Like having an 80Gig 3GBS floppy. All insertion products should be rated to 50,000 as a rule of thumb.

Best thing since USB Key!! 12/16/2008 7:53:57 PM

Pros: - Compact 2.5"
- Easy to setup, versatile with SATA or USB
- FAST!
- Travel pouch is pretty cool
- All cables included!
- 3.5" Rack is actually pretty good!

Cons: - eSATA port on my ASUS wasn't working properly
- There's some kind of weird metallic discoloration on my shiny aluminum case
- What's with the 2 USB -> 1 DC plug?! What is it for?!
- 4 screws on the bottom is REALLY hard to get off... had to use a kitchen knife...

Overall Review: I bought this yesterday with WD Scorpio Blue WD5000BEVT 500GB for total of $146.xx ~ it was easy enough to setup. The 3.5" Rack went in pretty easily on my HTPC ~ after switching to AHCI from SATA MODE, I was able to hot swap the drive without it crashing on me.

One single USB is enough to power the HDD+Enclosure which was surprising to me.

Pretty good 10/23/2008 12:51:39 PM

Pros: Enclosure seems sturdy, it has nice foot pads for anti-slide when set on a surface. The mesh bag fits all the cables and the drive inside of it. Hotswap seems to work fine.

Cons: The drive harness fits loose in my Cooler Master Centrino case. It will not lock down and stay put using the screwless technology on that case. I had to remove one of the screwless fixtures and manually screw it in to secure it.

Overall Review: When removing the drive enclosure from the harness, it catches somewhere on the enclosure, but it could be from my mounting situation putting stress on the harness.

Doesn't use F.I.T., have to unscrew four screws. There is no leather on the enclosure, some of the description specs are wrong.

A Gift Horse 8/15/2008 1:34:34 PM

Pros: Work as advertised. No driver necessary; I installed the units into my computer running Ubuntu 8.04.1 LTS and just threw the driver CD away. Also, most bays like this connect to your mobo via slower USB *not* faster SATA... a comparable product in this price range is difficult to find. Includes screws & cables ;-)

Cons: Somewhat flimsy workmanship & materials. However, considering the enclosures are meant for 3.5" drive bays, everything is a bit smaller and more fragile. Use extra care when installing.

Overall Review: As the pictures would lead you to believe, you do *not* need SATA power cables inside your case. Also, when inserting the enclosed drive into the bay, you need to press firmly or a good connection won't be made and the drive won't be recognized.
