Pros: Moderate price, lightweight, electronically sound.
Cons: Cheap plastic latch with tiny plastic ears that break easily.
Other Thoughts: Both drives go offline when a door is opened. Perhaps this is normal, but it is a nasty surprise.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy to swap drives (when the door works).
Handles 4T drives.
Cons: After a short time, one of the doors refused to open. Turns out the little plastic hinged lift that you use to open door has two plastic ears on the back of it. One of them broke off. I did not play rough with it. I finally got the door open by using a tiny screwdriver to manipulate the mechanism.
The fan is noisy when on. It does tend to turn on and off at semi-random times (I guess whenever the O/S wants to chat).
Other Thoughts: I'm having lots of trouble with my Ubuntu 14.10 system playing well with USB3. Not the device's fault, but something to be aware of. Sometimes rear ports work better than front ones, updating BIOS might help, etc.
I contacted the company once about this problem, but got no response. I'm trying again.
Pros: Small, lightweight
Cons: After changing a drive about two dozen times one of the doors refuses to open. I can't figure out how to force it open without breaking the case. I did not abuse it. Poor design.
The fan is not the loudest, but very noticeable. It may be hot-swap but when I remove one drive both drives go offline. Does not work reliably with Ubuntu 14.04.
