Pros: Looks cool, works just fine. No issues with transfer and connections.
Cons: It is bulky and has a lot of connections I will never use, but their there if I ever need them. The biggest issue is it took almost the entire 15 business days to get from China. I do think twice when ordering anything from overseas, I see if it might be offered stateside, for a couple dollars more.
Other Thoughts: Shipped from China

Pros: I'm using this enclosure in an 450b norco server case and it fits perfectly.
It's extremely nice to be able to hotswap in and out my 3 backup drives for taking them off site.
Cons: The doors seem extremely flimsy and I can't get them to push the drives in far enough to make contact and start them spinning. I usually end-up having to push the drives into their slots with my fingers and then close the drive door the rest of the way! This works, but it's slightly inconvenient!

Excellent 2.5" SSD Mount in a 3.5" bay with cooling Fan
Pros: Rosewill in my opinion has come up in Quality products just in the past year to 1.5 years Fast & With HUGE IMPROVEMENTS IN QUALITY, Workmanship & WITH Excellent PRICES TO BOOT!!. Hugely, on practically anything they offer now. Everything I've purchased in the past 1-2 YEARS Has & Continues to FULLY OPERATE WITHOUT ANY FAILURES AT ALL. FROM USB POWERED PRODUCTS, GAMING KEYBOARDS, SATA HHD 2.0 USB AND 3.0 USB HHD PLUG'N Readers Without any HHD Enclosures, Just Plug them in the the Wall for the Power Adapter & Hook up all the USB Wires, & The SATA & 7 Pin & 15 Pin Plugs & Immediately Read any SATA OR IDE HHD, 2.5", 3.5" 5.25" Optical & the Older 5.25" HHD "Monster HHD's. Great Products PERIOD!! AAA+++ ON Everything that I've purchased by Rosewill. This is a GREAT EXAMPLE. Extremely Easy to mount your 2.5" SSD Drive into a 3.5" bay. And it even has a Small Cooling Fan to boot!!. Installed it along with an Samsung 840 EVO, & the fan just adds just enough cooling, although its not totally needed, but keeping ANYTHING Inside a PC Case Cooler, will in no doubt extend practically anything if you cool it down, even if its only a few degrees. I got approx 12 Degrees Celcius drop BELIEVE IT OR NOT. And I was Very Pleasantly Suprized to get That much from such a small fan, with a standard 4 pin Molex adapter (Only 2 pins are used) Comes with all hardware, to mount the SSD To the bracket, & hardware to mount the bracketto the 3.5" Bay. Will even work with any type of "Toolless" Bay Retainers as well. My case is a Thermaltake & I Have 1 SSD which is just mounted directly on the floor of the case, solid mounted w/.4 screws. It gets a little bit of cooling from my Front 120/140mm Front Intake fan. But this one has its own small fan with small power to run the fan & still got the approx 12 Degree Celcius!!! Simpy Amazed me as I only though would get just a few degrees only, but Blew me away with a 12 Degree Drop!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! I RATE IT AT AAA+++
Cons: Absolutely NONE: GREAT ITEM AAA+++ ALL THE WAY
Other Thoughts: Price it against other similar items of the same thing, & This is LESS than HALF the cost of ANY 2.5" SSD Drive Mounts THAT HAVE A COOLING FANs with them & ONLY just a couple of dollars higher of PLAIN, Plastic or Metal Brackets that does NOT EVEN Have ANY COOLING FAN!!! AAA+++

Pros: Well built little card. Price is good, its not a bad card just slower than i expected
Cons: OK, 2 drives in R0 (mushkin DX) are above 800mbs on my OEM adapter card. I barely broke 400 with this card and that was on accident by not re-setting the raid modes. This is a good concept but a bad implementation, also hit the market about 5 years to late. The JM 562 chip is capable of sata3 speeds. In single drive mode i was in the 200's R and about 100 W. Thats just wrong.
Other Thoughts: Well for an old junky SATA1-2 computer these might be a good thing, or if you have no Msata slot or just have extra drives you want to use. It "should" saturate an sata2 port. The description should state its only sata2. I did not test in PM mode, didnt really see a need as it was so slow in single drive mode
I can still use it i have an older C2D T400 i can put it in.
I have tested 3 differant cards of this type in 3 weeks and they are all pretty much the same. One was sata3 for a desktop and the performance gain was minimal. So for now i will just keep looking i guess, somthing better has got to come out sooner or later.
