Ratings & Reviews+

3.5in USB 3.0 SATA HDD Enclosure w/ Fan is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from mediocre I did not like the build very much. But the main complain is about the board inside. The enclosure uses ASM1051 chipset with the original firmware (PID: 55AA). I does not transmit S.M.A.R.T. info (temperature/health/early failure warning) to the computer. Currently, there is no way of updating the firmware. In addition, this drive enclosure is not recognized by BIOS when connected even to a USB 2.0 port: my desktop could not see it at all, while my Lenovo T61p could see it after 4-5 restarts. This means that this drive cannot be used as a boot drive. Also, it cannot be used with Acronis to restore a disk in DOS mode. I do not have such a problem with any other external drives. I do not know if a firmware update could fix this. I just bought another enclosure that uses JMicron chipset for which there is a firmware update and it does all the things this enclosure does not do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works but noisy fan Bought two of these units and they work well. Very fast backups to 2 TB SATA 3 drive using the USB 3 port built into the motherboard. This device cannot be used to boot from, even if you have a hard drive configured to do so (at least not through the USB 3 port) as it does not show up at POST when the PC is scanning all attached and powered on devices. I did not buy it for that purpose, so I am OK with it but it might be an issue for someone needing it to boot from. The only issue I have found is the sound that the fans make; they run very slow (a good thing because it should make them almost silent) but they make a bit of a rattling sound (both of my units) that is not normal. Not a real issue but I will try to replace the fans with higher quality ones and see if the noise goes away. They do keep the drives inside quite cool. Taking one star off due to fan noise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Startech-3.5in-SuperSpeed-Enclosure w/ Fan VERY nice! Solid manufacturing and took me exactly 20 seconds to actually install drive and about 60 seconds to unscrew and re-screw (2) screws. COULD NOT ASK for an easier installation. Fan is QUIET!!! Whisper quiet. I AM VERY PLEASED and would highly recommend to anyone. I have built over 1000 computers (I am a computer tech & admin) and this product gets (7) STARS!
