Overall Review: I wanted to build my own as I've done for the past 15 years and have been holding off since last fall, waiting for graphic cards and other parts to become more widely available. My current system is 6 years old and I got tired of waiting. So I bought this instead which was more than I wanted to pay, but close in terms of what I wanted inside.
I'm happy with my choice. Like others have said about this brand, I had to call in to get my Windows activation key, but it was a 5 minute phone call and easy.
Pros: The enclosure has been working steadily for 10 months now. Have two HITACHI 0A38016 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" drives hooked up in non-RAID. I managed to fill up the drives and plan on buying another until for more storage on second PC.
Cons: The unit or drives make a little noise all the time even when the drive isn't being accessed. Not enough to make me take a good look at it though.
Overall Review: I'm buying a second unit. Need I say anymore?
Pros: Works as promised.
Cons: Firmware upgrade.
Overall Review: Had to go to the Samsung Canadian website to find the firmware upgrade, or even any information what so ever.
