Rated 2 out of 5 by Archie Nice, cools and kills
I bought this to replace 3-4 different cases, to be able to use the same enclosure for my hard drives. One of them heats up and stops sometimes, so i needed an active cooled one, however when I use this HDD, im not using the others not to damage them. However with cooling even that one doesnt have any problem, used to run it built in my computer, with cooler, never had a problem.
When I got this, I installed everything as it should be done, connected to the computer. Everything works just fine. Releasing from Windows, then unplug, turn off. Turning back on a few hours later, one hard drive has damaged file system, the other still there. I thought I unplugged too fast, my fault, can happen any time. Did the same again, release, unplug, turn off. Next time I turned it back on, the other is dead as well. Im just trying to recover my stuff since then, but I had to buy one more HDD, because I cant fix the damage without formatting the HDD, which would mean losing everything. So at the moment I have 2 damaged HDD, one new on the way, which I didnt intend to buy, and the hope that I can recover everything.
Rating 2 is cause the price is alright for the value (cooled, 4 bay 4x6tb, which is quite big, and replacable cooler, if the factory one isnt enough.) and the buildin materials and way is alright, but I really do not recommend this, as it just killed my hard drives on the 1st and 2nd use. Will give it one more try though, when I got the new HDD.
