I've a couple Rosewill, one unit free w/ a HD purchase and another for $10, that will variously see/are rated up to 1.5T. Seems I might have been doing weird stuff with pre-formating them with a likes of Easeus before putting them into an ASUS MB BIOS that definitely didn't support that large a drive. Or something. The ASUS MB has went since practically belly up. Not sure, either, would tend to doubt offhand, if I've actually a 2G in a stack of 3 or 4 1+T, large "GREEN" drives. Thermaltake, btw, is dumping their USB2 docking stations in front of the USB3 onslaught after a suitable course of rebate hoops for jumping through. Geez, hope they don't get stuck with any leftover extras that cost $50 at the time I got my Rosewills. Saw the Thermaltakes for $10 on sale yesterday or today, not for sure where but possibly on Newegg. They'll be spec'd out for a drive-size range, anyway, in their lit.
