Bought it for mobility of my bixgox HDD. I've converted my bigbox to a 1TB, 2.5 inch HDD - the Seagate Hybrid SSHD. I like being able to remove my HDD and take it with me when traveling. Convenient if I need anything on it, and it's not left behind for potential home break-ins while I'm away.

Only issue I have with this is the HDD temp when mounted in the bigbox. Inside this enclosure, and mounted in my bigbox, my HDD was hitting 44C-47C consistently. I'm more comfortable with 35C-38C. I'm not a gamer. The occassional use as a USB 3.0 external on my laptop didn't get warm at all. Only reason I held it to 4 stars is ventilation. It has none.

I recommend this arrangement except for temp, but actually the temps I experienced are really not that bad. I've since changed my removable mounting system to another config using an I/O Crest 2.5-Inch SATA HDD Tray Less Mobile Rack SY-MRA25017 (SYBA) from Amazon & an Akitio FD2500U3 Super Speed 2.5" Light Slim USB3.0 Portable Hard Drive Enclosure I got elsewhere (though Amazon does have them). Everything is much cooler and the Akitio is a tool-less, screw-less design.

We're using these units as a backup solution to replace our aging tape drive systems and so far I'm fairly impressed. They seem to have a decent build quality (mostly metal with a plastic front), are easy to use (no problems fitting my 5-9mm SATA SSDs), and slide in and out of the removable bays without trouble. There is also a light that indicates connection and maybe HD activity (I haven't watched it too closely, just use it to gauge a general connection). The price point is certainly higher than tape backup per GB but the backup speed, convenience, and durability far exceeds our previous systems.

I purchased two of these units for the purposes of setting up a backup system between two machines at different locations. I put a 1TB drive in one of the enclosures, put it into the first Linux machine, setup LUKS encryption on it and an LVM volume on top of that, and wrote some scripts and udev rules to automate the process. Now, I plug the drive into machine A, where it'll mount the volume, write an rsync batch file to the drive with the changes, dismount it, and disconnect it. I take the drive over to machine B later, plug it in, and it mounts it and runs the rsync batch script to sync the changes. Simple, effective, and works great. Perfect for my needs.

My only issue is that on the second machine, very very rarely, when I plug the drive in, the machine completely powers off. Very odd. It happens so rarely that I haven't had a chance to diagnose it, so I'm not willing to blame it on the StarTech unit yet. If it does turn out to be the unit's fault instead of the motherboard or power supply or whatever, I'll be knocking a star off.
