Pros: Works great. Well made. eSATA is great for performance, and the fact that it comes with an eSATA bracket for your computer is great as well.

Cons: If you plug in the USB to power the enclosure before you plug in the eSATA, the eSATA connection is ignored until you restart the computer. Not really a con but just how the technology works. I would like it better if it just always used the faster connection.

Other: I've had this about a year now, and it is still working flawlessly. I use it with a drive with two partitions on it, one for storage formatted NTSC, and the other is a bootable linux Ubuntu partition.
