Strength: Sturdy aluminum case.
Great sound dampening.
Well made and easy to assemble.
Included usb 2.0 cable, esata cable, and SATA to ESATA bracket for the back of your computer which is an unexpected bonus.
Weakness: One of the screws was the wrong size, but it happens.
The blue LED is a little on the bright side but not everyone would consider that to be a con.
Summary: It's not as nice looking as the other Vantec enclosures but that's why it's less expensive.
Overall this enclosure exceeded my expectations with its good build quality and extra goodies mentioned above. Very impressed. 5/5 stars.
