5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

This review is from: Rosewill RX35-AT-IU BLK Aluminum 3.5" Black USB 2.0 External Enclosure

Pros: Build Quality

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I have a Windows Home Server running on my network. Before, I had a 1TB hard drive to back up my server C: drive, which is overkill. I had a couple of old IDE 100 gig hard drives sitting in my computer junk drawer that have been sitting there for years. Purchased it to put one of those drives as a auto backup drive. Very well built, nice and solid. For 17 bucks I was really surprised at the build quality.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat price, solid quality

This review is from: Rosewill RX35-AT-IU BLK Aluminum 3.5" Black USB 2.0 External Enclosure

Pros: Exactly what you need for a no-frills product that gets the job done. Had no issue installing an IDE drive in this enclosure and getting it up and running in just a few minutes after a previous enclosure I had for many years failed.

One nice feature is the power connector is a standard barrel connector and of a small size and weight. Others use a DIN connector more prone to coming lose or have a huge AC adapter.

Blue light is small and not overbearing. I also wanted a fanless unit and the aluminum case helps dissipate heat.

Cons: None.

2 out of 5 eggsnot for power hungry dives

This review is from: Rosewill RX35-AT-IU BLK Aluminum 3.5" Black USB 2.0 External Enclosure

Pros: Nice packaging

Cons: An earlier reviewer, Denis K. spotted this, and I'll confirm, The unit will not spin up an older, power hungry, drive. Maxtor, 120 GB mfg. date Aug, 2003, known good. I had two enclosures, neither would spin up the drive. Drive is rated at 970mA 12v and 670mA 5v, so 15 watts total on a 12v 2A (24 watt) supply. But no-go on either.

2 out of 5 eggsDid not work

This review is from: Rosewill RX35-AT-IU BLK Aluminum 3.5" Black USB 2.0 External Enclosure

Pros: Fast shipping, easy to set up, good customer support

Cons: Did not work with a standard 250GB Maxtor Hard Drive

Other Thoughts: I gave 2 eggs because Rosewill sent me a replacement with no questions asked after the first unit didn't work. When the second didn't work I was asked to call tech support, and they ultimately gave me a RMA.

However, they could offer no reason why the product didnt work, since my HD works perfectly otherwise. I asked if they could send a unit with a more robust power supply, and was told it wouldn't help and all they could do was an RMA. I would have been happy to return both units if they were willing to upgrade to something that might power my HD, but not luck.

3 out of 5 eggsBasic Case

This review is from: Rosewill RX35-AT-IU BLK Aluminum 3.5" Black USB 2.0 External Enclosure

Pros: Inexpensive, simple, lightweight

Cons: A little bit on the cheaply manufactured side, but not too bad.

Other Thoughts: I bought this case to hold my mom's old hard drive that I repaired, and now I've shipped it off to her out of state, meaning I don't have to worry about what happens to it now.

I found that if you lay the case flat on the largest side while putting in the screws, so the screw holes are facing horizontally, the screw holes align as they should. The natural impulse is to position the screw holes facing up, so it is easier to put the screws in, but that allows the drive in the case to tilt enough that the screw holes won't align. Rosewill could rectify this by adding positioners inside the case to hold the drive in place, or making the holders stiffer.

This is just a basic case, nothing fancy. In my brief experience with it, it does the job. My mom got her hard drive and was able to access her files, so my work is done.

3 out of 5 eggsAdequate for simple backups - Inadequate for Smart TV use

This review is from: Rosewill RX35-AT-IU BLK Aluminum 3.5" Black USB 2.0 External Enclosure

Pros: Serves well as a cheap spare drive housing for backup use with a PC. I paid $14.99/free shipping. Relatively heavy metal case. Looks more expensive than it is, from a distance.

Cons: The data connection cuts off every few minutes, for a second or less, then it reconnects. When transferring files to/from a PC, that's no big deal. But I bought the case to house a drive plugged into the USB port of a smart TV to play video. Every other external hard drive case I have on hand serves this purpose well. However, this Rosewill case causes the TV to drop the drive when the connection is broken, preventing movies from playing completely. Also, for some reason, drives in this case take a very long time to be recognized by the TV. The same drives placed in other brands of case are recognized immediately.

The case has two screw holes to hold it together, but it ships with an envelope of six screws. None of them fit the case's screw holes. I used spares from the parts box to hold it together. The quality of the machining of the screw holes, and of the case in general is low, keeping with its low price.

Other Thoughts: If you need a simple external case for a backup drive, this is an adequate product. If you need an uninterrupted data stream for smart TV video playback, this case is unsuitable.

I have had very bad experiences with every Rosewill product I have owned that involved electronics. In 2012, there were a number of storms in this area that cut the power and resulted in surges. I had Rosewill power supplies in four of my PCs. All four of those supplies failed catastrophically, taking all or part of their PCs with them. My remaining PCs, which had Seasonics and other brands of power supplies, suffered no damage. This made me vow never to use a Rosewill electronic component again - but I thought an external drive case was too simple to mess up. I was wrong.

I still use some Rosewill PC cases, which are quite nice, but they have no electronics more complex than switches and fans. Cases, switches and fans seem to be the maximum sophistication of non-faulty components Rosewill can dependably produce.

1 out of 5 eggsMounting holes are not where they should be!

This review is from: Rosewill RX35-AT-IU BLK Aluminum 3.5" Black USB 2.0 External Enclosure

Pros: The enclosure works.

Cons: The two side holes were off just enough to not allow me to install the screws. I had to use a drill and elongate the holes to get the screws to line up with the drive.

1 out of 5 eggsWon't power all drives

This review is from: Rosewill RX35-AT-IU BLK Aluminum 3.5" Black USB 2.0 External Enclosure

Pros: Very affordable

Cons: This Enclosure/Adapter was unable to power my Maxtor 160GB HD (No spin-up). The enclosure will power other drives and other power supplies will power my Maxtor so I assume the Maxtor just requires too much amperage or its board is more picky about the voltage. Sad :(
