5 out of 5 eggsIt does what I needed it to do

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

Pros: Solid case.
Includes needed cables.
Doesn't get too warm (passive cooling).
Also works with 400GB and 500GB IDE drives too!

Cons: Two drives reported that they needed to be formatted and they shouldn't have (they contain data), but this is a Windows issue (MBR probably).

Other Thoughts: Ordered several for old (seldom used) IDE data drives. Use short silver screws for rails inside, then long silver screws to secure drive on side, and then black screws for back (in that order) and you can't go wrong. If one doesn't want to thread, it will work (don't ask me why) in the other hole). I'm not trying to insult anyone, but things sped up moving them in when I figured this order out (back black 2nd was a nightmare, LOL).

5 out of 5 eggsFor IDE, it's great

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

Pros: Very inexpensive for an external IDE drives -- Nice metal case and stand, long power cord

Cons: none ... works as specified ... all IDE drives are pretty old by now, so I wouldn't rely on them for my only backup.

Other Thoughts: I'd put the money in a new hard drive if this external enclosure was a dollar more. For the price, it's worth buying if you have an old, but decent IDE drive ... I have a Black edition Western Digital that I can trust for a few more spins.

3 out of 5 eggsIt does what it says on the can

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

Pros: Overall it did work, and the case is sturdy metal construction with a nice stand.

Cons: First off the manual is utter garbage. It's a tiny pamphlet, and half of the pages are dedicated to how to format the drive. The other half are basically "screw in the drive to the tray and good luck!". No mention of jumper settings, or troubleshooting. When I powered on the enclosure, the drive refused to spin up. After trial and error, I discovered that the power had to be switched on before the USB plug was connected, or it wouldn't spin up. You'd think that would have been something they could have spend 1 line in the manual on, instead of 500 warnings that the drive needs to be formatted before you use it.

Secondly, the enclosure is an extremely tight fit. You end up basically having to force the drive into it. The ATA cable and the power wires also needs to be folded over in order to fit into the enclosure. If you are planning on using this for a single drive, that's OK, but after multiple insertions and removals, I'm not too sure that this is going to stay in one piece.

5 out of 5 eggsJust Fine

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

Pros: Accepted 120gb Maxtor with no problems, nice finish, screws were right when I got them right (3 different pairs), easy assembly

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: Looking at my stock of old IDE HDD, I wonder if I should have bought several more - but with flash getting cheap the decision point is about 30gb..

3 out of 5 eggsSolid But Warm....

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

Pros: Easy to swap drives, fast transfer speeds for IDE/USB 2.0. Got it for $14.99, which I think is a steal for a Rosewill. Silver color and shape matches my Rosewill eSata enclosures pretty well :)

Cons: No fan. Not usually a big deal but the case is warm to the touch, making me wonder how hot the actual drive is inside. Instruction manual is very uninformative as well, leaving out critical information when dealing with IDE drives.

Other Thoughts: NOTE: When installing drive, make sure jumper pin settings are set to MASTER, not slave like most enclosures.

^This was left out of the instruction manual and caused me to have to remove the drive for a second time :/ I swear by Rosewill products but I believe I will find a fan cooled equivalent soon.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible

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

Pros: None other than nicely packaged and shipped VERY fast.

Cons: 1st unit arrived DOA. Returned to Newegg (RMA) and had to pay $26 UPS shipping fee to return a $19.99 product (That seems fair, right?)

To top it all off, 2nd unit arrived also DOA.

Hoping to get a refund for item or UPS shipping fee refunded.

Other Thoughts: Perhaps I just got 2 units from a bad bunch???

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

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

Pros: Inexpensive, nice looking and fairly quick setup.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: How does one utilize a stack of old, small IDE drives? Why, just make 'em into USB external drives! Instant portable storage. Sweetness.

A big "THANK YOU" to the many thoughtful reviews on Newegg. I read through quite a few of the reviews on this enclosure, so I knew what to expect when they arrived. The screw holes do take a little coaxing to get them lined up; some older drives are hard to fit because they're so thick; and you do need to pay attention to the instructions/photos so you put the correct screws into each spot.

I bought 2 of these enclosures and each took about 5 minutes to put together. One of them was initially seen by Linux as a USB 1.0 device, but the problem actually turned out to be a faulty 3rd-party USB A-B cable. After replacing that faulty 3rd-party cable with the one that originally came with the enclosure, the enclosure was correctly seen as USB 2.0.

3 out of 5 eggsNice case, no spin-down

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

Pros: Very sturdy case. Nice block of metal that probably helps to dissipate heat. DC power is standard coaxial type, not some weird PS/2 knockoff connection that I've had for other enclosures. Connections are simple and sturdy.

Cons: No HDD Spindown!?!?! I bought this to make a NAS drive (with a USB NAS device I bought elsewhere), but left it on overnight and it was still spinning in the morning. Would be a good case for traveling or temporary use, but not for NAS.
