Great Enclosure

Pros: This is a great little device. Solid build, great features, and very easy to work with. It does require a screw driver, but comes with it!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It has a virtual CD drive function that makes installing operating systems from ISO files a breeze. Just make sure you read the instructions, you can't just throw the ISO's on the drive and expect them to work. You must put them in a _ISO folder on the root of the drive. Works flawlessly once you figure that out.

Is It me or the Product?

Comments: I used this normally for about 3 weeks. Then all of a sudden, it disconnects itself from the computer everytime I try to transfer files onto the drive. I tested the hard drive and it checks fine, so the only conclusion I come to is that the interface in this enclosure is losing connectivity. Anyone else have similar experience?

Slick enclosure with innovative features

Comments: Hardest part is creating/finding the various ISO's that you want to use. But once I did, I keep finding new uses for it.

Very Nice, Solid construction. Does not support Virt Drive in eSata Mode!

Comments: Wish they would support ODD in eSATA!
Would be nice if we didnt have to use those tiny screws everytime we wanted to change drives, a latch would be appropriate.
