    With more cons than pros I don't understand how it still rated above a 7.

    Mainly? Price. That is the one and only reason it got the Budget Award. Here in central Europe the cheapest *combo* enclosure with eSATA & USB 2.0 costs 23€. And that one does not come with a OTB functionality. So the Slide Pro is cheap...but you get what you pay for...

    It works as advertised, thus it gets a 7 rating.

    If Spire were to advertise "tool-less" installation (like their original Press Release a few months ago said, while the website no longer mentions such a feature) or "absolut silent"...

    ...then it would receive less than 7.

    cheers

    My photoshop skills are amazing! Good review by the way. I always stick to enclosures with the larger 80mm fans in them though.
