Item not to buy

Learned the hard way - do not buy
MacAlly 3.5" USB2.0/1394A Aluminum Encl Macally FireWire 400/USB 2.0 External Enclosure for 3.5" SATA Hard Drives - Aluminum Construction
If the rest of their products are of the same quality, do not buy that brand, period.

PS: Waiting to see what remedy Other World Computing proposes.

PPS: The Antec MX-1 that I purchased from Circuit City is in comparison, a work of genius. I can verify that it supports 1.5 terabyte hard drives, at least through its USB 2.0 port. (I do not know how/whether eSATA works.)
