    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Storage Solution Over the years I have had to greatly increase my abilities to archive large amounts to HD video files. The more production I do, the more my storage requirements increase. I started with external drives, the typical kind with a power supply and USB cable attached. The problem with this is that it ends up becoming a tangled mess on my desk as I bought different brands and types due to differences in prices at the time. I needed to simplify, and after purchasing the Voyager S3 USB 3.0 drive docking station, I found the answer: no more external drives; only bare hard drives to be used with the docking station. This way I will only have 2 docking stations, both running on USB 3.0 and each with their own power supply, greatly decreasing the clutter on my desk. The only downfall to this? The need to store and protect the drives when they are not in use as they are sensitive to shock, vibration, and of course static. This is when I discovered these drive cases. Upon inserting my bare drives into the cases, I notice they fit snugly and securely. They remind me of the older style broadcast tape cases used in professional video applications, such as Betacam SP. The idea is very similar to a tape case for pro video, which I like because it is familiar coming from a tape background. The included labeling section on the spine makes it very easy to print and adhere a label so I know exactly what is in the case. I duplicate this label on the drive itself so that I can match the drive to the case, just like I would a video tape. I now treat hard drives as very-large-capacity video tapes with the ability to interface through USB 3.0 and I couldn't be happier so far with the results. The uniform storage format achieved by these cases greatly reduces clutter, simplifies my storage needs, and allows me to easily transport drives for offsite backup. I keep 2 copies of each drive in case of failure, so all I need to do if one drive fails is copy the other drive to a replacement and I am back in business. This system is also infinitely scalable (necessary for my type of work) as I shoot video all year long, every year, with the need to store massive HD video files and eventually 4K and hopefully 8K someday. With 5 TB drives becoming the cheapest storage option, this seems to me the most practical way to archive lots of HD video files with ease and expandability. I am deducting one star because the price seems way too high for what you get. They are basic plastic enclosures, and at a little over $5 per case, the price is pretty steep. However, I see these as necessary to protecting my precious video archives so I am willing to make the investment for the long term. As long as I keep up with maintaining the drives, I should be able to keep this system going indefinitely. It's just as easy as buying new tapes, saving footage to them, and putting them on the shelf. I have 2 copies of everything, with one set being on-site, and the other being off-site. Pulling up footage is as simple as locating the case containing the drive with the desired date range, then inserting it into the dock and turning it on. It doesn't get much easier than this apart from building a full-on media server which would be insanely expensive and way out of my budget range. I would definitely recommend these drive cases as a way for video professionals with the need to archive to achieve an efficient and cost-effective method of storage. Sure, it's not a RAID system, but as long as you keep an eye on your drives' health, there should be not problems in replacing faulty drives. I am very happy with this product and plan to buy more as I have more drives than cases at this point. I hope this helps you in making your purchasing decisions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Case for 3.5 HDD - Does the Job Not much to say. They do what they are advertised to do. They hold 3.5 drives snuggly and securely and even have labels to make identification easier. I have only made use of two of the ten so far, but i see ne reason to deduct stars. I have not tested their anti-static capabilities, but they are also stored in an environment that is not conducive to static electricity.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Convenient These Drive boxes are a convenient way to manage the constellation of HDDs needed for media work and backup. They are strong enough to withstand ordinary handling, but will give out (fracture) sacrificially if dropped while containing a disk. This failure mode is preferred to the potential for damage to a disk.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I use these to store hard drives with duplicate copies of all my files in a storage unit. They allow me to store multiple sets of drives in a water proof pelican easily without damaging the drives. I will continue to buy these as long as they make them.
