1 out of 5 eggsDOA Product - TWICE!

Pros: None.

Cons: Unit was DOA. I received a replacement and that was also DOA.

Other Thoughts: I always had a hard time believing people who claim a device was DOA, especially more than once. Now I know it happens...

I bought one of these for home a year ago or so and it's been working fine so I bought one for the office. The unit arrived and failed to work. It turned on, fan spins, blue lights on, even heard the familiar ping of connecting a USB in Windows. The drive never appeared in Windows (Win8.1) using USB or eSata. Tried on home computer, same issue. Put HDD in my home enclosure, no problem.

So Rosewill/Newegg sent replacement, paid for return shipping. That's great. Problem is the replacement doesn't work either. This time it turns on spins, etc but I don't even get the usb ping sound and there is no drive present. eSata doesn't do anything either. Just a waste of time now. Time to try a different brand. Disappointing since I've been relatively happy with Rosewill quality over the years with PSUs, cases, etc.

5 out of 5 eggsThis is my second one

Pros: Great price
FREE shipping
Very well made
Has an eSAT connector (I will explain later)

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: I bought my previous one in October of 2013 but had never tried using eSAT although the hardware was included.

This time I installed the eSAT connector and the cable and here is the difference in speed:

I ran an Acronis backup using USB 2.0 and it took 47 minutes.

Then I ran the same backup using eSAT and it took 9 minutes.

Now I wish my other Rosewill enclosures had that feature.

I now have seven of these enclosures and love 'em.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I like these enclosures. Easy to setup. rugged and nice looking. I've been using a couple for quite a few years now, swapping new drives in I need more space.

Cons: I had a USB port fail on an enclosure I've had for years. That aside, never a glitch.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid construction and cools very well.

Pros: Materials are of good quality, good construction, feels sturdy and very cool to touch.

Cons: Does take a few minutes to install a hard drive due to removing side panels and screws, but not too bad. I've used a couple of these, and the latest one had the fan hole on the wrong side, so had to rotate it to align with the case fan, so make sure that is aligned else you wont get much cooling benefit from the fan.

Other Thoughts: My friend has been using this in his auto shop for years now, running alldata and ondemand through this, previous portable hard drive (wd passport 500gb) setup burned out after a short time because in summer, the shop would reach at least 90+ degrees F.

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost Perfect but still a great value.

Pros: *Solid Design
*Easy to install and remove HDD
*Made of mostly aluminum
* Has a fan you can turn on/off

Cons: - Extremely bright LED's
- Fan is a bit noisy

Other Thoughts: Picked this up after one of my network drives enclosures power supplies fried. Didn't need the instructions to install since everything was pretty intuitive. Works as expected but geez those LEDs! You'd think you were at a laser light show, especially when the HDD LED is flickering from activity. The fan could stand to be a little quieter but for the on-sale price, can't really complain. It works well. I only took off one combined star for the two cons. If only one con existed, I would've given 5 stars because of the overall value.
