Strengths of the product

Easy to assemble. All 4 NAS drives were recognized right away. Case body helps keeping the drives cool. Ideal for external drive backup. Good price for enclosure which includes the USB 3 cable. I have used Nexstar USB 2.0 product ( 5 - 10 years ago or more) and they are still working fine.

Weaknesses of the product

None so far.

Additional Comments

Strengths of the product

- Clean finish - Easy setup

Weaknesses of the product

- feels cheap and poorly designed - the provided screws were mismatched - was not able to secure the steel case to the plastic bottom - failed after 1.5 months

Additional Comments

Purchased this enclosure 1.5 months ago. During the 1.5 month everything was working fine, but one day the enclosure failed to provide the power required to boot a 2 TB hard drive. The build quality and material of the enclosure is not great, felt cheap. Wouldn't recommend.

Works Perfect! (even with SSDs)

Strengths of the product

Very good speeds for the price, better than the patriot gauntlet 2 Read Speed: 370 MB/s Write Speed: 250MB/s

Weaknesses of the product

Contrary to the other review, this bay works fine with both HDD and SSD

Additional Comments

threw in a 250GB Samsung 840 (non-evo, non-pro) into the enclosure Windows 8.1 and 7 recognized it right away just like any other drive would of been Tested with ATTO Benchmark this enclosure is surprisingly fast for how cheap it is after 32K the read speed is solid at 370MB/s and the write is 250MB/s the samsung ssd should have a read limit of 500+MB/s so im thinking 370 MB/s is the enclosure's limit 250MB/s is the limit of the SSD and may not be the limit of the enclosure
