How hot are these things running for everyone?
I'm using my brother in laws that he purchased about 6 months ago. It runs well into the 60's which is waaaaay too hot. I've heard they might have improved the venting with newer versions, hopefully that is the case.

|MOkoFOko||Wow, saw this during an ebay search just now, was shocked I didn't see this go FP. 5 hours left!|

|hilaryshotlips||I didn't see any mention of a power switch on the enclosure. Is the only way to shutdown the drive by unplugging the power adapter? Is the drive programmed to spin down when unplugging the adapter?|

On my MB I have only one PCIe slot and it is already taken;
Standard PCI add-on card it is just a tad faster than USB 2.0 and those cards are very expensive!
Since I have an eSata port available, I think the cheapest solution would be this one , but reviews says that it is getting hot while in use...

I give all of you credit who send back hard drives under warranty and trust the employees of the hard drive manufacturer and whatever 3rd parties they may used to refurbish the drives. I would just eat the cost.
In a previous thread, one poster mentioned that all he was asked to do was fax or email a printout or data file from software diagnostics he was asked to run by tech support. I gathered he just destroyed the drive and received a new one.
I still may take a chance on this one. Why does Buy.com/Rakuten.com charge less for this on their Ebay page than the Rakuten.com page?
Secondly, is this backwards compatible with USB 2.0? The 1st key features say that the interface is USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, but the 2nd group of features state:
USB 3.0 Interface Adapter with Capacity Gauge
4-foot USB 3.0 Cable

Own these, got one back when staples had a similar deal.
Excellent speeds(USB 3.0), never had a problem. Although the usb cable might be shorter
For people thinking of buying these, make sure to keep the hard drive flipped vertically(the vents should face up)

Clearly if somebody is looking at this then they don't want to wait 9 months for Black Friday (well, late Nov in general, BF by itself isn't that great).
