5 out of 5 eggsNice enclosure.

Pros: Easy to install drive. Only took a minute. eSata seems to be fast.

Cons: Only usb 2.0 and if you use eSata you have to have a power source.

Other Thoughts: I missed the specs that this was usb2.0. I was after eSata thinking it would be just as simple to plug that cable in and get faster speed. But the eSata cable does not provide power. The usb cable has two connectors, one is obviously the data/power, while the 2nd is just more power if your drive draws too much. For the eSata you simply use the usb power connector. If you plug in the usb data I heard from other reviews the unit defaults to usb not esata. Just a note on usage.

4 out of 5 eggsso far so good - well constructed

Pros: Works as advertised - well constructed. IMPORTANT NOTE: In order to use the eSATA port (cable) which needs a separate power connector, PLUG THE SUPPLIED USB CABLE into a USB port, but only plug in the end connector on the USB cable. The USB cable has two connectors on one end. The first (thicker cable) connector is for both USB data stream and power and will automatically connect the device as USB. The second (end) connector is for USB POWER ONLY! When using eSATA, plug in the end (thinner cable) connector ONLY. That USB connector will then only supply power to the HDD. The ESATA cable will then supply the data stream to/from the HDD. eSATA 'Hot Plug' works on my system.

Cons: I took an egg off because the instructions were very poor, especially without a clear explanation for using the eSATA port. As can be seen from the many posts on this thread, the poor instructions have caused much confusion about how to successfully get the eSATA port to work.

Other Thoughts: I've used many Rosewill products over the years and have generally been satisfied - obviously some are better designed and made than others, but generally Rosewill has produced cheap, quality products.

1 out of 5 eggsR.I.P.

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

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

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.

1 out of 5 eggsNo eSata

Pros: Sleek Design

Cons: Bought it for the eSATA port, sadly you need a power supply for this to work which of course isn't include. Even worst, this case is rated 5v but @ 2amp, very difficult to find a power supply with these specs. As there isn't any mention about this I've wrote to rosewill technical support, sadly they're will tell you that eSata should work without a power supply.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes Its Job

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!
