4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Solid construction. Easy to open and close. Good airflow. Looks nice.

Cons: The fan is a little noisy.

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these enclosures and both are still going strong after two years. Construction quality is good. The unit is very easy to take apart and slip a drive in and out. I use these enclosures to house 1TB WD drives for backup purposes. The drives run cool and there seems to be adequate airflow. The fan is a little noisy but does not bother me too much as these enclosures are not on continuously. If the fan was whisper quiet, I would rate it one star higher.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Had this for almost 2 years now, great enclosure, I keep the top off and use it more for hot swapping drives. Great speeds on USB 3.0. Generally maxes out the drive itself.

Cons: Kinta bulky

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: It has a fan and easy to insert the HD, make sure that you hear a click to ensure its installed.

Still running my media and the fan is still quiet and running smoothly.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: reposition the blue light in the back or add a on/off switch for the light. The light is not blinding but distracting. Cant put tape over it,since the light is inside the grilled airflow vent.

4 out of 5 eggs1st Use: Seems OK

Pros: Solid; well-vented.

Cons: Guide doesn't tell you which screws go where, so be careful not to strip by mis-matching. The larger-head screws x4 (cheese-head screws) go on the outside; the pan-head screws x4 go on the inside. Do a quick web search for screw head types to help.

Other Thoughts: So not really a large 'con', but thought others might like to know so as not to strip threads by trying to force the external screws when screwing the drive into the case.

5 out of 5 eggsI love these!

Pros: I bought two of these last September when they were on sell for $30 each as a shellshocker deal. Since then I have used them extensively on a daily basis, traveled with them, and used various types of drives of varying capacities in them (hdd and ssd).

They are easy to set up and make file transfers a breeze. I really like using them for data recovery for systems with a messed up boot drive so I can pull the person's personal files from the drive prior to formatting it and reinstalling the OS.

After a year of use the light and fan are still working in the two that I own.

Cons: I haven't had anything negative happen with these units.

Other Thoughts: I want to buy more if newegg ever puts them on sale again. They are an excellent product. Highly recommended.

5 out of 5 eggs3TB OK

Pros: Works with my new 3TB backup HD. USB3 is handy since I can use it on more systems than with eSATA. Works great when using with clonezilla for full backups.

Cons: Might be just on my USB3 controller card, but I hear the drive heads park & re-seek when connecting/removing device from host system. Doesn't cause a functional issue, but the clicks spook me every time I hear them.

Other Thoughts: Blue PWR/HDD LEDs are bright, but can be modded to stay off if you don't like them.

4 out of 5 eggsExactly what I was looking for

Pros: Well Built, inexpensive, big cooling fan. I had been doing backups to a 1.5TB drive and over usb 2.0 it was just painful. This drive made all the difference. Files transfer at full drive speed 90mb. click it on instantly recognized. Asus p67 with usb 3.0, never an issue

Cons: Could be even cheaper. I purchased this drive on sale for a price equal to the amount of pennies in a quarter. That is what i feel an external case is worth. every $10 over that i would take away a star.

Other Thoughts: For the price i paid this was an astronomical deal. I get tons of value off it. I should of bought several and i regret that now

4 out of 5 eggsNewEgg's service slipping...

Pros: -sturdy aluminum case
-fan
-USB 3.0 backwards compatible with USB 2.0
-my last Rosewill USB2.0/eSATA external enclosure model has lasted for years and is still going strong although it's missing its two rear screws
-LED lights
-works with GNU-Linux
-speedy NewEgg delivery

Cons: -Fan doesn't want to come on immediately every time. Switching it off and on a couple of times usually forces it on.
-NewEgg got it to me fast as always, but unfortunately they failed on the email request. As soon as I ordered the product I immediately sent NewEgg an email asking if they could include a couple of extra rear screws for my old model that I had misplaced. I then received an automated email from NewEgg which had no response at all about my request. So I sent a second polite email trying to be more specific about my request only to receive a second automated email and by this time I already had the product on my doorstep! 5 eggs for NewEgg's speedy shipping, 0 for customer service this round.

Other Thoughts: Newegg: please send me the specs of the rear screws so I can find them locally. Thanks.
