This does exactly what it advertises. I replaced my hard drive with an SSD in my laptop and using that drive with the VE300. The ability to select and boot any iso is extremely useful. One thing to mention is the drive I plugged in to the zalman was partitioned using GPT in NTFS format, and the enclosure would not detect any iso files. Make sure to reformat and convert to MBR so that feature functions. Also make sure to update the firmware from the Zalman support website which recommends partition with the exFAT format. Other than no GPT support (you can still browse and write files on the drive), I had no problems with this enclosure.
Awesome gadget. Being able to install OS's without burning disks or creating boot-able USB devices is a huge time saver for IT folks. Its also much faster installing them from a USB 3.0 virtual drive rather then a physical disk.
Very nice aluminum enclosure. Currently being used with a cheap Agility 3 60GB SSD. No problems so far, very fast (195MB/s Read - 175MB/s Writes according to ATTO using USB3.0 connection). Virtual ODD is a very nice feature. You can load all your setup ISO's onto it which speeds up installs dramatically as it's much faster than an actual optical drive.
I've had this unit for about 6 weeks now, I use it at work as a SysAdmin for loading ISO files on to servers and workstations as well as for backing up media. I love the speed of the unit, its incredibly fast and I can even load HD videos off of the drive with smooth framerates. I'd recommend getting a 2.5 drive thats faster than 7.5k RPM to take advantage of the USB3.
eSATA was really useful on the original iodd2501, for updating HDD/SSD firmware. But I've been waiting for USB 3.0 version for a long time, and this is it! I'm getting 100MB/s read and 70MB/s write speed on OCZ Vertex 2 90GB SSD 1.35 firmware.
