Pros: Seemed to work fine but then......
Cons: ... died after just six months running in my server. Not a lot of load, just storing large files. Have done an RMA and will see what they send me as a replacement. Even if another new drive, can I trust it????
Other Thoughts: Can't recommend but then none of the HDD manufacturers make much of a product anymore it seems.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Lots of space. Very sold - thick steel. Lots of fan options.
Cons: VERY heavy. Almost too heavy. Build quality not too good. Paintwork easily flakes. Case top is accessed by removing the tiniest screws. Very easy to lose. would have been much easier to just screw at the back like 99% of cases.
Other Thoughts: Probably should have looked elsewhere. This is okay overall but not quite to the level I'd hoped for. Too heavy to bother to RMA so now sitting in storage for some future use.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: acomdata SMBXXXU3E-BLK Aluminum 3.5" Obsidian Black SATA USB 3.0 External Enclosure
Pros: Easy to assemble. Decent performance. Seems to keep the drive quite cool (WD 1GB).
Cons: Glossy surface.
Other Thoughts: Regarding the attachment of the stand from another poster. It is a bit weird but you loosen the screws and then slot in the nuts to the bottom of the stand sliding them in from the back. Then re-tighten. It is not obvious and there are two drilled holes at the bottom of the enclosure that makes you think the screws should go in there (which they do not).READ FULL REVIEW
