Summary: This product is terrible. DO NOT BUY. The buttons are unresponsive making the drive no better then any other external harddrive enclosure. Unresponsive buttons make the iso mounting useless and you will lose your data if you encrypt the drive and the buttons wont allow you to unencrypt.
Summary: After fixing some issues with the drive I used in it (it had an EFI boot partition on it that the enclosure didn't like), I finally got my ISOs to show up. The keypad was unusable during the time I was having the drive problems, but I figured it would come to life once I fixed those. Not so.

Summary: I was hoping this would be a great evolution to the ZM-VE300, but unfortunately the keypad they used was of poor quality, only the 3 right hand buttons would respond to any input rendering the device useless.
Summary: As a long time user of the zalman drives and own multiple VE200 type models, I was excited to see this new model supporting USB3, encryption, and keyboard input. However the experience was a nightmare!
Summary: The idea behind this enclosure is sound, however it's a total failure on delivery. Judging by reviews on the internet only 1 out of every 8 or so units has a decently working keypad. How this device made it past Q/A at Zalman is beyond me.
