5 out of 5 eggsGreat enclosure

Pros: I've had this 5 years and it has maintained my drive without fail. I wanted a drive that had all of these features:
Aluminum Casing
Fan
External power supply
eSATA

Cons: I was supposed to receive black but meh not worth a return, it probably has slightly better grounding this way.

1 out of 5 eggsDidn't last long

Pros: Looks nice. Well built. Worked good while it worked.

Cons: Power LED started going off and on at random. Checked connections, etc. All okay, and another enclosure of same type works good using same power source and cables. Not sure what's going on so can't depend on it to house my backup hard drive.

Other Thoughts: I have three or four of these silver colored units and a couple of black ones, Have had cooling fan noise/failures before but nothing affecting (or possibly affecting) operation prior to this power LED glitch. It might be just the light acting up, but I took it out of service since I was depending on it to store my backups. I am not positive how long I've had this particular unit but I have only used it since I purchased the 2TB hard drive (from Newegg) on 10/2/14 to use in it, so I think it is the last enclosure I purchased (on 6/28/14). If so, that makes it about seven months old with less than five months usage.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks like a charm!

Pros: My enclosure came disassemble with the screws in a baggie so it was easy just to plop in my SATA drive. I am using this enclosureto house my WD AV-GP drive to work with my Verizon FiOS Motorola 7232 DVR via eSATA.

Cons: The included eSATA cable worked on my computer but not on my aforementioned DVR. When I switch to a higher quality eSATA cable the DVR saw the drive successfully and has been working without a hitch ever since. Removed an egg for the poor cable.

Other Thoughts: If you are using this enclosure for a DVR expansion or don't like the built in sleep functionality, just go to the Rosewill website to download the firmware update to turn off the functionality. Easy as pie!

3 out of 5 eggsGood, expect for sleep of death.

Pros: Lots of metal for dissapating heat.
Big, quite fan.
Simple and low profile.

Cons: The sleep of death is a serious problem with USB, but not so much over eSATA. Sleep occurs over USB after like 10 minutes of idle, and I have to power toggle the enclosure to fix it. I still see some sort of sleep-like lag with eSATA, but it doesn't last long and it recovers on it's own. This might be a big deal for me if I used these for any more than occasional backups.
I have read that Rosewill has released a fix for Windows users, but that doesn't help anyone else.

1 out of 5 eggsNot a reliable product

Pros: Comes with a fan and cables.

Cons: Stopped working after a year.

Other Thoughts: I purchased 3 of these over a span of 1 year. Two have already stopped working. I thought it was the HD at first. Remove HD and docked it. HD was fine. I put HD back in enclosure things worked for a few days then HD was gone again. Tried new HD and got same results.

The second enclosure did the same thing a few months later. I am just waiting on the third one to go out, it's only a matter of time.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's doing the job okay.

Pros: Relatively inexpensive, fan-cooled, eSATA connection.

Cons: None in my opinion.

Other Thoughts: It's been up and running 24/7 for two months. Sits on top of my workstation under my desk. Fan noise is not noticeable over other ambient noise.

4 out of 5 eggsvery good enclosures

Pros: These enclosures are excellent - quality construction. I've owned several over the years and they all still work after heavy use. The fan on one of the older units is getting a bit noisy, but other than that - no problems.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Note: These are USB 2 - eSATA ll models.
I just hope Rosewill continues the same quality with their USB 3 - eSATA lll models.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than Expected!

Pros: Well Built and heavy enough that the cords don't pull it around the desk.
This enclosure was easy to place a drive in and works like a charm. No noise from the cooling fan and the lights in the end of the drive are a warm blue.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Even on the USB2 port, it works very well.

4 out of 5 eggsCool Hard drive

Pros: Hard drive fits, can switch fan off and on.

Cons: I wanted to use this as a eSATA drive but there is no way on earth that will ever happen no matter what I try.

Other Thoughts: Only works with USB 2.0, but it works.
