5 out of 5 eggsNice enclosure

Pros: Good enclosure and I like having the separate options for eSATA or USB. I bought this after upgrading my old 1TB drive to a 4TB. I then wanted to turn the 1TB drive into an external. Drive to drive transfers were fast. I was able to get about 30MB/s out of USB and 80+MB/s out of eSATA.

Enclosure is almost entirely metal, it definitely doesn't feel cheap.

Cons: Assembly wasn't difficult, but probably my only gripe is it's assembled using more screws than what's entirely necessary. Design wise, they could have done a better job of a tooless design that would make it more friendly to swapping drives out.

Fan is also noticeable when sitting on top of the desk, but you can always turn it off. Having it sit on my tower underneath my desk in my office, I don't notice it at all.

Regardless, no eggs deducted for any of those things. They're just minor little things that may be important to someone else.

5 out of 5 eggsAll around SOLID External Enclosure

Pros: -Aluminum body to help cooling
-quiet fan yet excellent airflow and heat dissipation
-all of mine have had excellent craftsmanship
-works well on eSATA and USB (eSATA performance is very good)
-definately worth the money

Cons: The only con, and it's not a big one, is it's not made for quickly switching out a hard drive. It takes a complete breakdown of parts to do that.

Other Thoughts: I have 4 of these (2 black and 2 brushed metal/silvery. 3 run on eSATA (which I still prefer over USB 3, because no port dropouts or driver problems which USB 3 still has).

One of mine has run 24/7 for 3 years straight on USB connection as the backup drive for my WHS2011 server!

*To Roger S. below: They DO make a USB 3.0 version...I also have one of those!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat HDD Enclosure from Rosewill

Pros: Cost
Keeps hot HDDs cool
Works with 4TB drives
eSATA and USB
Build quality is good
Fast shipping from Rosewill

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I got this enclosure to cool a fast 7200rpm 4TB HDD(HGST 4TB NAS). I'm really happy with my purchases. The 4TB HDD was recognized and formatted to 2x2TB partitions in Windows 7. The drive stays nice and cool with idle and load temps in the 30s(degree Celsius). With my old 3TB HDD that was enclosed without a fan, I had major heat issues, and the thing died unexpectedly. (It was a non-HGST non-WD drive, and the heat probably sped up it's eventual death.)

This enclosure came at a good price too. If you're on the item's page, scroll down a little bit until you see "More Buying Options." Then "add to cart" from Rosewill Superstore. That confused me at first because I didn't see the price at first near the top of the page. Rosewill's shipping was fast. I got it in a couple business days early in the morning. That may vary a bit, but I was happy to get it so fast.

Rosewill has proven to be a great brand for various computer components for me in the last 10 years. My first case was Rosewill, and it did great for the 5 years I used it. I have some of their non-fan cooled enclosures for a couple 1TB HDDs I've been using for 5 years now. I've been using their 1000W bronze psu for over a year now with no problems. I just replaced 4 of my fans with their 75cfm 120mm fans.

5 out of 5 eggsBuilt like a Tank

Pros: This enclosure is build like a tank. It surprised me how heavy it was when I first got it. I figured it would be a fragile little case, that would have to be assembled and used with care. I think I could spike it to the ground with some damage to the floor.

Cons: None

Pros: Love the design.
Very Attractive.
Bright blue light!
Sturdy.
There's a fan

Cons: No longer recognized by my computer.
Firmware directions are a joke.
The Firmware executable is gone from the Rosewill site.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect Solution

Pros: Nice finish on this case. The bright LED is accessible, so I can dim it as needed.
All hardware included in the box: Drive screws, case cover screws, sSATA cable, power adapter, USB 2 cable, eSATA bracket

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Very pleased with this purchase. Will order another soon. I had no idea the eSATA bracket was included .. which is nice. I have an eSATA port on the MoBo already, but having an additional makes it easier for adding this (and another) external.
