2.0 out of 5 stars These come with faulty power supplies, firmware problems and cooling issues due to poor design., 15 Sep 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: ICY BOX IB-3640SU3 4x 3.5 inch External 4-Bay JBOD Enclosure for SATA l/ll/lll HDD (Accessory)
I wish I'd read the reviews before purchasing rather than just looking at the amount of stars. My PSU died on only the second time I put power through it and I didn't even get the chance to run a firmware update which would apparently cure the sleep issues that I noticed the very first time I used it.

I went back and read the reviews and people had rated this product 5 stars even when factoring in the cost of a power supply they bought themselves as the supplied one died. Many also rated highly and stil talked about firmware issues and new firmware that might solve the problems.

I can agree that the door has to be open to provide any ventilation into the enclosure and there are no air holes present and not visible on the pictures due to clever design. I really can't imagine who thought to put in a fan and no intakes for it.

It does hold 4 drives in JBOD and can be connected to by USB 3.0 and eSATA. I don't think this is a bargain at the eighty eight pounds and ninety nine pence I spent on it and I believe it should cost half that however since I don't know of any alternatives I've requested a replacement from Amazon.
