4 out of 5 eggsFunctions Reliably

Pros: Very easy to use, the hardware included with the enclosure allow you to use it several different ways.

Cons: The blue LED power light is extremely bright. I have mine hooked up to my Roku on the shelf under the TV but the light has to be covered (even when the lights are on) as it's brighter than the TV. Easy enough to cover the light, but it would be nice to see the manufacturer dim the LED for future models.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: This is my RX-358 enclosure. One of the better products that I have ever used. E-Stata has great speed, Fan keeps the drive really cool.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: They should take this design and upgrade it to support USB 3.0. Then you would have the ultimate.

5 out of 5 eggsgood enclosure

Pros: The package includes an external eSATA bracket with an internal cable. That was a nice touch. The performance and stability of the unit have been fine so far.

Cons: The package didn't include a base for mounting the drive vertically, but that's no big deal.

Other Thoughts: I'm using this as a backup drive for a NAS device. In this role it's working fine so far. Some others have mentioned problems relating to power saving but I haven't found experienced any problems. I'm curious how long the fan will last considering that I have this unit on 24/7/365. But if the fan starts to fail that's no big deal because there's a control on the enclosure to disable the fan. The longevity of the fan aside, generally speaking I'm not optimistic about external enclosures' ability to properly cool the hard drive, so I always pair external enclosures with low-power "green" drives.

5 out of 5 eggsSweet Deal

Pros: Got this for $15 on sale for $49. Great deal, works great.

Cons: USB 2, but who cares for $15. Using it as a media drive hooked to my PS3. USB 2 more than enough bandwidth for movie/picture/music playing

Other Thoughts: Great quality

5 out of 5 eggsAnother positive review

Pros: Very economical when you can get them on sale (fifteen bux, woo-hoo!). Fan keeps HD cool, extends life. Fairly easy to assemble. Quiet. Very reliable. Good appearance.

Cons: Wish that the activity light was on the top, instead of the bottom, not a big deal. No, I won't turn the drive over because then the fan points the wrong way.

Other Thoughts: I've been using these for years, no problems. I upgrade the firmware (get it from Rosewill website) to disable the auto power-down feature, found that it got in my way spinning drives down at the wrong times. I run some with eSATA, some with USB2.0, either port works great. Would like USB3.0 but I'm not paying twice the price for that.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat answer for storage

Pros: I have two of these with Seagate 2TB drives in them. Quiet, dependable, not oversized.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: If the controller in an all in one portable drive quits you are in trouble. But a case is just a case. Worth the extra money if you depend on your backups but do not want or cannot afford a NAS box with raid. On sale here I got the case and a 2tb drive for under $100.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good External

Pros: Works as expected , I had a WD Black that ran hot . I used this external and now it runs 97 degrees . Read - Write 105 - 105

Cons: not sata 3

Other Thoughts: Also this one did NOT need the firmware updated to keep it from going off line . My two year old unit has been sitting on a shelf because of the sleep problem , Till I read some of the reviews and someone said they had firmware update and it worked . Hardest part was updating in windows 7 though Parallels 10 , but it worked . cool
