Had this for a few weeks now working with an Acer EasyStore H340 WHS 2003. The Acer doesn't have port multiplication so I can't use the Esata, and have it plugged into USB2.0 for now. I have a new mediasonic usb3.0 pcie card on the way though. I have moved 2 of my Seagate Barracuda 2tb drives, and two new Hitachi 4tb drives, which were all picked up correctly with no problems.
I purchased this in late December after moving my HTPC setup to a Zotac ZBOX AD10 mini-PC. That mini-PC has eSATA without port-multiplication support but does have 2x USB 3.0 ports meaning this made sense.
I have previously owned the 4-Bay Mediasonic cases (USB 2.0 and eSATA) as well as a pair of Sans Digital 4-Bay eSATA enclosures.
