Ditto regarding noise and flaky connection
am 3. Februar 2016
Fantec are once again not on par with regards to quality expectations for this gadget.
The unit comes with a little screamer of a fan that makes for a very distracting ambience under use. Unfortunately, it cannot be externally or internally regulated, but it's easily removed completely once the unit is opened. This of course is only a good idea if you're using nothing but low rpm hdd's and do not mind running them a little hotter than normal [I'm getting around 45-50C depending on room temp].
The big deal breaker with this one though is its utter flakiness in maintaining or even initiating a connection. You will encounter some hdd's that will simply not be recognized by this unit, no matter whether you preformatted them or formatted them inside the unit. The list seems to include WD Red HDD's, none of which my docking station has so far been able to recognize.
Fantec's firmware upgrades are few and far between. Also, there is no central repository where you could easily download them should they become available. I have come across some random post in fantec's user forums, where admins have actually posted new firmware. They should be up on your website under the heading «support», guys. Front and center. Not found after hunting through reams of crap on your forum.
Not impressed is the word.
