5 out of 5 eggsThis is my second one

This review is from: Rosewill RX-358 V2 BLK (Black) 3.5" SATA to USB & eSATA Ext. Enclosure w/Int.80mm fan

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.

3 out of 5 eggswell built, noisy, bright led

This review is from: Rosewill RX-358 V2 BLK (Black) 3.5" SATA to USB & eSATA Ext. Enclosure w/Int.80mm fan

Pros: Solidly built, fairly easy to install but has a lot of small screws

Cons: noisy, lots of fan noise although you can turn the fan off. I'm not certain how well it cools with the fan off. The aluminum body should dissipate the heat well, but I'm just not certain. I didn't go to the trouble to measure the heat buildup. The blue led is really bright.

The fan lost a blade after about 2 years. It seems hard to find a new fan. I'll probably just forego the fan and keep track of the heat buildup.

Other Thoughts: Pricy compared to the Plugable USB3 enclosure I have

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Device

This review is from: Rosewill RX-358 V2 BLK (Black) 3.5" SATA to USB & eSATA Ext. Enclosure w/Int.80mm fan

Pros: Incredibly easy to install. Fit my WD Red 4TB drive perfectly. Very solid construction and a nice look as well. Comes with esata and usb cables and a sata to esata bracket as well for those that don't have esata on their motherboard.

Cons: Only minor issue I found was that the blue LED that designates power is a bit bright for my tastes.

Other Thoughts: If you have the choice, use the esata cable...it will be a way faster interface than usb.

Also, you might have to reboot your machine for Windows to notice the drive after plugging it in, but once you do, you can use the Disk Management utility to quickly set up partitions and format your new drive.

4 out of 5 eggsWorking Fine

This review is from: Rosewill RX-358 V2 BLK (Black) 3.5" SATA to USB & eSATA Ext. Enclosure w/Int.80mm fan

Pros: Easy to install once, pay attention when opening and watch your screws

Cons: I had to reformat an already formatted drive to get windows to actually allow me to use the installed HDD.

Other Thoughts: After the annoyance of yet another format, I was fortunate in that I was not wanting to keep the information already on the drive, it was a snap to use. Using this on my 2nd Wii to play backups so I can keep all the discs in one place.

1 out of 5 eggsNot Transparent Use with Mac OS X

This review is from: Rosewill RX-358 V2 BLK (Black) 3.5" SATA to USB & eSATA Ext. Enclosure w/Int.80mm fan

Pros: Decent Price, Sturdy, Seems Reliable at First Sight

Cons: A little louder than expected. But mostly, not transparent use in Mac OS X

Other Thoughts: I acquired it to use it as a backup device with one WD Black Series (no complains there with Black's), but formatting in GPT Guid and HFS+ (journaled, NOT case-sensitive) seemed to be being done to the little controller chip-card. and not to the drive itself.
What I did was : drive formatted as noted above, drive inside enclosure. Drive taken out in order to copy directly through native SATA connection (because copying 1tb over native Sata is expected to be faster than usb 2.0 connections). Formatting was never recognized by the host. I tried several other methods and ways and formatting drive directly but no avail at working both ways. Formatting in Windows seems to work, though.
Using other enclosures proved to be successful, so, if you are planning on using it with a hdd GPT HFS+, please do yourself a favor, and choose another enclosure.

3 out of 5 eggsGood Product.

This review is from: Rosewill RX-358 V2 BLK (Black) 3.5" SATA to USB & eSATA Ext. Enclosure w/Int.80mm fan

Pros: Black stealth color with blue led lights, the fan works fine keeping the Hard Drive cool. No issues yet, It just works!

Cons: I wish it had a better way to stand the enclosure, it has no stand so I have to set is flat on table.

Other Thoughts: Only reason why I gave it a 3 star, it has no stand.

5 out of 5 eggsLong life!

This review is from: Rosewill RX-358 V2 BLK (Black) 3.5" SATA to USB & eSATA Ext. Enclosure w/Int.80mm fan

Pros: I've had this enclosure for over five years now. It has performed many functions, housed many drives, in it's long, illustrious life. This is one of those rare products where you feel like you somehow stumbled onto a classic - an always there, always working peripheral that you never, ever worry about.

Cons: I can't think of one!

Other Thoughts: This baby has seen service as a back-up drive, portable transit storage, part of a RAID 10 array, and even run several Linux distros! The USB II is a good, fast USBII, but I mostly use the esata, which is a very fast connection.

1 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Rosewill RX-358 V2 BLK (Black) 3.5" SATA to USB & eSATA Ext. Enclosure w/Int.80mm fan

Pros: Good solid case
cooling is good
transfer speeds are good
TSA security didn't even look twice at it
The firmware problem has been fixed. Download the latest patch.

Cons: Rosewill does not honor warranties when a product is gifted. Do NOT buy this if you intend to give it to a family member/fiancee as a present.

Other Thoughts: If rosewill/newegg actually backed their warranties this product would be worthy of five eggs. Since the company will not back products it sold I have no choice but to give it one egg.

4 out of 5 eggsUsed to expand Fios DVR

This review is from: Rosewill RX-358 V2 BLK (Black) 3.5" SATA to USB & eSATA Ext. Enclosure w/Int.80mm fan

Pros: Combined with 1TB western digital blue to make a DVR expansion. It worked pretty much plug and play. Note that the first time you use it you should power up the enclosure ***before*** rebooting the DVR or it won't be recognized.

Cons: A little bit loud. In fact it was annoying until I moved it into the cabinet that has a glass door. Which was doable but only barely because the enclosed esata cable is only 3'

Other Thoughts: I got this cheap and a cheap drive made my total investment much less than buying the Drive that is specifically sold as a Fios DVR expander.

5 out of 5 eggsI like it

This review is from: Rosewill RX-358 V2 BLK (Black) 3.5" SATA to USB & eSATA Ext. Enclosure w/Int.80mm fan

Pros: Attractive
Well engineered mostly metal case.
Has a fan to cool drive and usb interface board.
Esata cable included. Esata faceplate adapter and sata cable for inside the computer.

Cons: Two really bright blue leds. On indicates power, the other indicates drive activity. Not a big deal.
The 2 short sides are plastic. Not a big deal.
