After thoroughly using the F-35, I really can't think of too many things wrong with it. Actually, all I can think of is that it lacks e-SATA, and it fingerprints easily. Neither of these are a big deal at all. The F-35 looks awesome! The shiny black coloring works. I love the two 50mm fans and the blue LED on the front is great. More importantly, the performance is great as well! The F-35 does perform slower then an internal drive, but that's to be expected when using an external enclosure. It would be nice to have an alternative to USB, such as Firewire, or e-SATA. However, the F-35 looks so sexy, it's hard to notice anything is missing. Besides, it makes sense that Kingwin would use USB and not anything else. Everyone with a computer has at least one USB port, and many people with computers have neither a Firewire nor e-SATA port. Why would you go to the trouble of adding features many customers may not be able to use?
I know many people like their external enclosures to be bullet proof. The F-35 seems very sturdy, but I can't imagine it surviving a fall to the floor. However, I'm fairly certain it would save your HDD in the event of a fall to the floor. However, forget all this falling. The F-35 is meant to be on your desk, or at least my desk. Some users do carry around their HDDs, so for those folks, durabilty is something to consider when purchasing an enclosure. Overall, I'd recommend the F-35 to any one looking for a way to add another HDD to their rig.
