1 out of 5 eggsR.I.P.

This review is from: Rosewill RX25-AT-SC-SLV Aluminum & plastic 2.5" Silver USB2.0 & eSATA External Enclosure

Pros: Was great while it worked.

Cons: Just decided to bite the dust one day. Power LED still comes on but drive is not seen any longer. Checked drive on another eSATA connector and it sees it fine.

Other Thoughts: Not even worth sending back at this point. Think I'll just try another brand.

2 out of 5 eggsHalf of what you pay for

This review is from: Rosewill RX25-AT-SC-SLV Aluminum & plastic 2.5" Silver USB2.0 & eSATA External Enclosure

Pros: Easy to install drive in enclosure. Has eSATA connection. USB connection works fine.

Cons: eSATA connection does not work. Powered it with an external power source and with a USB wall charger. Tried 3 different eSATA cables. Tried it with three different computers.

Other Thoughts: I bought the enclosure to use the eSATA connection. Pretty much worthless without it.

5 out of 5 eggsgood enclosure

This review is from: Rosewill RX25-AT-SC-SLV Aluminum & plastic 2.5" Silver USB2.0 & eSATA External Enclosure

Pros: inexpensive, easy to install, directions actually didn't read like gibberish (a rare thing these days), no unnecessary software.

Cons: Not really a con: If you plan to use it on an eSATA you may need a power adapter. This was not included, but for the price, I did not expect that.

Other Thoughts: I was a little unsure about the "tray" as it was just a frame. But the drive fit into it perfectly and once the drive was secured with 2 screw (included), it seemed solid. Also the heat dissipation is better with this enclosure than two others I have owned.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes Its Job

This review is from: Rosewill RX25-AT-SC-SLV Aluminum & plastic 2.5" Silver USB2.0 & eSATA External Enclosure

Pros: This enclosure is simple and inexpensive. I use it for running games on for my laptop. With eSata I've never had any issues with speed. It easily fits in a backpack and not needing to carry a PSU around is nice. No issues with hear or vibration either.

Cons: Construction quality is just average, but about what I expected for the price.

Other Thoughts: Great bang for the buck!

5 out of 5 eggsread this for eSata concerns

This review is from: Rosewill RX25-AT-SC-SLV Aluminum & plastic 2.5" Silver USB2.0 & eSATA External Enclosure

Pros: Works perfectly - Slick with high quality / fit / finish - Does not overheat - good price

Cons: User manual should include an explanation on how to connect eSata to make it work (maybe instead of the 'HDD formatting guide' of little use) - The 5V DC connector in the back creates an impression that the DC adapter is missing and should be addressed specifically. (No, it's not needed)

Other Thoughts: To connect with eSata: power off, insert eSata cable and *also* USB cable (secondary only to only draw power) then power on, the drive should appear like all other disk drives.
If not enough power on laptop's usb port, you can use any other powered USB (like your phone charger...)
The misleading reviews that pretend that a DC adapter is needed should be answered by Rosewill as erroneous to save everybody's time.

2 out of 5 eggsBad design

This review is from: Rosewill RX25-AT-SC-SLV Aluminum & plastic 2.5" Silver USB2.0 & eSATA External Enclosure

Pros: looks good and cheap

Cons: there is no way to secure the hard drive on the chassis. No screw is flat enough to screw the drive on the side and still fit in the case!

5 out of 5 eggswell built

This review is from: Rosewill RX25-AT-SC-SLV Aluminum & plastic 2.5" Silver USB2.0 & eSATA External Enclosure

Pros: Got a couple of these for old laptop drives after upgrade to SSD's to use for external drives instead of just having them sit in a box easy to install drive and seems to be well designed box better than many of the other external enclosures I have used. The first one has a 500GB Western Digital 5400RPM drive installed using the USB 2 plugs got reasonable speeds on the drive, see Other Thoughts got slightly better plugged into USB3

Cons: none
