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.

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!

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Product!

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

Pros: It’s sturdy and looks cool. Perfect if you have an extra Sata drive and want to convert it to an external for backup. Sure beats buying an external hard drive brand new, especially a Sata3.0Gb/s 320gb one. I’ve owned it for over a month now and it works great. And as an added bonus the blue lights are cool; one for power and another for activity.

Cons: Don’t recommend using it 24/7, fan collects dust like an air purifier! On/off switch is great though, just make sure to select “safely remove hardware”, then just hit the switch to off. I like that though; having the hdd completely separate from your system is great for when weird/bad things happen… that’s why it’s a backup!

Other Thoughts: Not much else to say, I’m happy with it and again it looks and feels like a serious piece of equipment. Have had no problems with speeds on transfers whatsoever and it’s just an all around good product!

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Case

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

Pros: Solid and sturdy. Stays cool with fan. Lights up with blue LEDs. Holds hard drive securely in place. Easy to assemble.

Cons: Slow to respond when it goes into power save mode. Fan is a little on the loud side, but not terrible. Can easily tip over when stood on its side due to lack of a base.

Other Thoughts: Overall, it does exactly what I need it to do: it holds my 1TB hard drive and lets me plug it into my computer's USB port.
