3.5" SATA Firewire Enclosures in Hardware Stuff Posted December 17, 2007 OK. I did purchase the Newer Technology ministack v3. I have had it for a few months now and have been very happy with its performance. Data transfers have been very good and I can boot just as fast from it as I can my internal. One negative note, however. I purchased it from OWC with bundled software for an additional price. I already had backup software but wanted the speed tool utilities. Waste of money because it is not a fully licensed version but a crippled one that does not include updates. Some have commented about fan noise but I have not noticed it sitting next to my iMac. Installation was easy and it even includes a temp probe that provides temp data you can monitor using iStat Pro. Overall, though I have been very pleased.
