Virtual-CD/DVD, USB3
Case is a little cheap
Great for booting on Virtual-CD/DVD. I've put about 20go of ISO on it (OSs and tools) and I can boot on any of them as I wish. USB 3 + SSD makes install systems in only a few minutes (Linux, Windows, BSD, etc).

The case is a little bit annoying to unscrew to change the hdd/ssd. I finally put a large enough SSD in it so I don't have to change it for my need.

Experience: 2 Weeks


Does exactly what it advertises
short USB 3.0 cable
does not support GPT partitioning
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.

-Virtual BD-ROM Drive
-Nested folder support in _ISO for easy organization
-Supplied cable only works intermittently.
No IT support should do without at least one of the ZM-VE products in his/her big bag of tools.

Experience: 2 Weeks


Disk Emulator, Size, USB 3.0
Side button/scroll wheel feels fragile.
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.

I also like that the ISO files work from a folder and any spare space is used for standard external drive storage.

It all comes down to how long the wheel on the side holds out. I think id rather see three small buttons or a rocker switch provide the same funtionality rather then this one side wheel. It just feels a little clumsy.

Experience: 7 Days


Good features
Drops with supplied cable
USB 3 drops with supplied cable on Asus U36 laptop. Works reliably with WD passport cable from another drive.

Experience: 3 Weeks

It's a good gadget especially the bd-rom

Experience: 1 Days


sleek look
aluminum body
virtual ODD is a nice feature
no additional power cable required
includes case
no esata
included usb3.0 is a little short
jog dial button hard to press sometimes
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.

Only one cable needed, no extra power needed which I like. Comes with a protective case and a short USB3.0 cable. Would be better if it was longer.

Experience: 6 Weeks


Very fast speed, nice look, the ISO feature is very handy
USB Cable is finicky, doesn't load .cdr or .dmg files
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.

My major complaint about the unit is how finicky the USB3 cable is. 75% of the time I plug it in windows fails to detect the unit and I have to unplug and replug it back in on the device side several times before it picks it up. If i knock the cable even slightly it will lose power or connectivity to the computer. It's incredibly frustrating.

I would give it a 2star review but I dont have my OrderID number handy.

USB 3.0, works with OCZ Vertex 2 after enclosure firmware update.
no eSATA for direct HDD/SSD connection, like the original iodd2501.
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.

Make sure to update  ZM-VE300 with latest firmware from Zalman.
Thank you Zalman for having it available in Canada!

I use this thing to load .iso and floppy images, computer detects it as if it was a real USB DVD-ROM or USB floppy drive. Must have for any comp technician. Haven't tested it with MAC, but the older iodd wasn't able to boot from Mac.
