5 out of 5 eggsRosewill RX-358 Works Great!

Pros: Good packaging, shipping and worked right out of the box. Easy to setup, install hard drive and with all the cables I needed. Would recommended for desktop backup drive. Have it running 1.5TB eSata to backup 500GB Samsung EVO 840

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Running the eStata on Asus P6T6 WS Revolution for backup.

5 out of 5 eggsExtra hardware is nice

Pros: This disk enclosure has a place to put a disk and facilities to plug it in.

Comes with eSATA cable (18") and hardware for an expansion card slot so you don't have to have an eSATA port.

Cons: USB 2

Screw holes aren't lined up perfectly; had to push hard to get the screws in place to anchor the disk. In general, assembly isn't as easy as the Antec enclosure I've used before--there are 10 screws in total and they're a little finicky--but it's not a big deal.

Other Thoughts: Using this with a WD Green 2TB for file backup on my parents' machine. The enclosed manual only talks about disk setup on the USB connection; not hard to get it going on eSATA but they couldn't have done it themselves.

5 out of 5 eggsReally really good value for the money

Pros: Low Cost. High Quality. Cooling system. Very quiet fan. Design seems to be well thought out. Metal housing.

Cons: The cooling system only cools one side of the drive. I am not sure if most of the heat goes to one side or not.... so hard to say if this is really a bad thing.
Does not support SATA III but SATA II is plenty good for my needs.

1 out of 5 eggsDON'T use with mac/macbooks

Pros: If it didn't have the issues, it would be great 5/5.

Cons: This enclosure has a known power saving issue, but even after updating the firmware to disable the power saving, the enclosure still causes disk i/o issues and data corruption when used with macs and the drive sleep/wakes. The only known workaround is to disable putting disks to sleep in the mac power settings.

Other Thoughts: The newer RX-358 U3C enclosure does not seem to have this issue.

3 out of 5 eggsLasted 10 Months

Pros: Cheap, Worked good for a while Broke at 10 months. It was pretty fast at data transfer rates

Cons: If you are swapping out drives it gets a little old. They should have made the top the plate to remove when swapping out drives. Only lasted 10 months . The hard drives no longer spin

4 out of 5 eggsExact;y what I needed

Pros: * Sturdy
* Comes with mounting screws for the HDD
* Fan with manual on/off switch
* Great price when it is on sale

Cons: * Bright LED

Other Thoughts: I had one of those WD 750GB passport externals and the glue on the ribbon cable started to separate after a good 5+ years of use. I resoldered the cable quite a few times and I knew it was time to get a new external case.

This external case is way better than what came with the WD passport. The fan is a nice touch. The only minor gripe is the bright blue LED, but it's not that big of a deal.

5 out of 5 eggsIt works great

Pros: Cooling fan
Large HDD bay
eSATA

Cons: Not really a con, But LEDs are a little too bright.

Other Thoughts: I love this. As soon as I got it I put in an older WD caviar black 500gb and ran a Windows backup. It ran amazingly fast using eSATA. I liked it having a bracket already for the eSATA. It overall was a great purchase. P.S. it was on sale.
