1 out of 5 eggsDied Quick

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

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: Not reliable. Died within four months of normal use. Apparently the problem with many inexpensive externals is the power delivery. Whether it is the transformer itself, the circuitry to power to the drive within the enclosure, or all of the above, the devices are being shipped out with only marginal QC. They plug it in, it works, end of inspection - if the manufacturers do this at all is questionable.

Other Thoughts: Rosewill is New Egg's private label, and I have immense respect for New Egg, and consequently a lot of respect for Rosewill. I have bought thousands worth from New Egg over the years (since 2003!) and it seems when it comes to external drive enclosures or similar, Rosewill does not deliver the quality I expect from New Egg. I am sure New Egg will get it together in this regard in the future, but for now, I won't scrimp on this type of product. There are many high-quality alternatives.

3 out of 5 eggsWiFi Interference

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

Pros: It is what it is, an external enclosure for $20. It recognized my hard drive the very first time. Only a slight problem with drive installation.

Cons: Now, I have always kept my external behind my laptop maybe 4-6 inches away from the back of the screen. I had never had a problem with that while using the original My Book Essential enclosure that my external originally came in, but when I put it in this enclosure I noticed that my WiFi connection was dropped ~90% of the time and when I did have it it was very, very weak. Anytime I turned the power off on the enclosure my WiFi was perfectly fine showing that the interference was coming from the enclosure itself. I moved it to a different location, 1.5ft to the left of my laptop, and I only get slight noise in the WiFi connection now.

Other Thoughts: When the drive sleeps Windows will no longer detect the drive. This isn't a big problem for me since the power switch is within arms reach from my normal sitting position but it could be a problem for some.

5 out of 5 eggsSurprisingly Reliable

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

Pros: - Good Quality
- Does what it's supposed to do
- Instructions are straight forward, mounting the HDD is very simple

Cons: None that I can think of

Other Thoughts: I've been using this for data backups for 2 years now with no issues. I power it on once per month and it has never failed or given me any issues. I've actually bought a couple others for family members as well, no issues so far.

4 out of 5 eggsNot for continuous use

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

Pros: Works with Windows 7, Windows XP, and various Linux kernel versions.

Cons: It's perfect if you're looking to bake your hard drive. SMART showed my 7200 RPM Seagate over 50C (can't recal the exact number) after an hour of use. That's very bad for th bearing in the drive.

It really needs a fan if you're planning on using it as a NAS while plugged into a USB NAS enabled router. It also does not have any power saving features, so the drive runs all the time.

Other Thoughts: To help solve the heat issue, I decided to put some rubber feet on the top and use it upside down. I drilled holes (WITH THE HARD DRIVE AND PLASTIC OFF folks) at the back of the new bottom as well as some holes at the front on the new top. That should get some air moving from back to front, bottom to top, as the heat leave through the holes.


It does not have mounts for 2.5" drives should you wish to use one, but it will physically connect and work fine with one if you're careful not to bump it while it's working.

5 out of 5 eggsWakes up a hard drive from the dead!

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

Pros: Was able to get a 640 GB Hard Drive that originally was part of a Dell Studio 540 purchased in 2009 and then after that machine died was on two other machines in 2010-'11 before completely failing to work perfectly inside this enclosure.

Cons: You can't have it turned on too long or it will get hot! The heat is one issue if you need this turned on for an extended period of time. Best to use the on/off switch and only have it turned on as needed if you can do that.

Have to screw everything in place on the hard drive to the enclosure and then screw it in place on the enclosure (and you need a small screwdriver for it, which I happened to have), however, that's not really that big of a con because it's outweighed from being able to get hard drives long since dead to work again.

Other Thoughts: Overall, the product is working as advertised so far. The shipping (FREE!) was super-fast as I ordered it one day and got it the next, which NewEgg was great about!

5 out of 5 eggsSimple

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

Pros: Simple design, good looks (especially next to my Lian Li case).

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Drive fits snugly inside the enclosure. I was concerned about heat dissipation, but it hasn't been an issue.
