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.

5 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: Excellent alternative to an older pc without usb 3 capability, especially if you have a hard drive on hand to recycle back into use. I am using with a Seagate Barracuda (7200rpm) and get 123 MB/s read 115 MB/s write via esata on Crystadiscmark. Build quality is unbelievably good for the price point. No issues with fan noise - which really moves air through the enclosure briskly. Considering the cost of the esata cords and plates which are included, great value

Cons: basic ground delivery initially misdelivered, but retrieved and redelivered within a few extra days.

5 out of 5 eggsHOT running HD No Problem

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

Pros: A Fan and self powered! Very simple to throw together just remember the black screws are for looks so use on the outside! I had a very hot running 1TB HD which I retired from my gaming rig. Now I brought it back to life in this enclosure. Dedicated Wii USB drive!

Cons: Sometimes these new LEDs can be a bit bright!
