I haven’t had any problems with this box so honestly, 99 dollars still to this day, and 2-years of service with more on the way, I think that is a great deal. Remove the pressure plate, stick the drive in, replace pressure plate, close the bay doors. There are too many lights. By holding down the Interface button, you can select which mode you want. I never did cover up the blue LED’s that seem to bother most people. For 99 bucks, that’s pretty good. Sometimes when you get those cheap LED’s they will fail quickly.

Install it cupped UP, not down. The front enclosure panel what you need to remove to get at the drive bays has a “glass jaw”.
For 99 bucks, that’s pretty good. I still to this day highly recommend this enclosure, and I still keep it at a solid 5 out of 5 stars! Customers who viewed this item also viewed. Another thing this enclosure has is a smart fan feature. Very little plastic is on this thing and thats good. Some have also talked about replacing their internal fan to something much quieter.
Please try your search again later. I also love the pretty blue lights on the drive, although they might be too bright if you have this placed in a bedroom or movie room. I haven’t had any problems with this box so honestly, 99 dollars still to this day, and 2-years of service with more on the way, I think that is a great deal. And its probably about time for me to clean out the fan again since its been another year, I’ll get to it eventually lol.
Sometimes when you get those cheap LED’s they will fail quickly. I am able to access my files whenever I want to without issue.

Also the build quality of the box is pretty solid, it weighs a lot more then I thought it would. Ships from and sold by BuyGlobal.
Since I am using this with my router, I need my files eyfs be able to be accessed at all times by any computer on the network. But with this RPM mechanical drive that has 64MB cash, it seems to like writing more then it does reading. Please make sure that you’ve entered a valid question. Now for mediasoni bad. So lets talk about file transfer speeds I keep my fan setting on Auto, and it never razes the fan speed beyond fan speed 3.
At this point I just leave mine off.

If that sort of thing doesn’t normally bother you, no worries. Support all brand of 3. I keep it mediaeonic my desk anyhow. When reading from my new drive enclosure, copying a 4. As long as you know how to set this up, it should work for you.
Again the box is located in my computer room, not my bedroom, so it doesn’t matter to me. Remove the pressure plate, stick the drive in, replace pressure plate, close the bay doors.
Also, your going to loose some in the transfer link between the drive itself ejes the enclosure, before its sent to the router, then finally to your computer on your gigabit network. However, if your going to be using the USB connection, you don’t have to worry about that. I have got to believe that this is somehow related to the 64MB cash buffer, but I could be wrong.
Customers who bought this item also bought. If you fully populate the enclosure with 4 drives, in order to see 4 separate drives load in your OS, you will need to have port multiplier ability, which usually isn’t found in motherboards, so you will have to purchase an ESATA card to put in your machine that does support it. You are offered three levels of fan modes that you can either set manually, or medlasonic to smart auto.
