2 out of 5 eggsusb 2.0 yes, esata no

Pros: Aesthetics as expected. In the event that a external power supply with the correct specifications is found, the product will likely work as expected.

Cons: esata does not work out of the box, returned and received same. notes on requiring external power resonate

Other Thoughts: Expected newegg to preserve the Rosewill name. Hoping for an esata external product that only needs the esata cable.

Manufacturer Response:

The eSATA cable alone will not run power. To utilize eSATA you must have the USB connected to supply power.

4 out of 5 eggssimple and easy

Pros: simple, small, nice looking. I love that it powers off the USB cable provided and that's small. It has two indicator lights that are blue. One for power and activity.

Cons: It has an eSata port and comes with the cable but it needs an external power to use, which this doesn't come with, which make it's useless. the plastic ends feel like they will easy break if dropped from a low height.

Other Thoughts: I put a spare hard drive in this from replacing my laptop drive. I use it frequently . Not including a power source kinda stinks

5 out of 5 eggsRosewill RX25 External Enclosure

Pros: Small, compact but fits 2.5" HDD perfectly
Great aluminum brush finish
I got the silver colored enclosure
Easy to take apart and install HDD into unit
Comes with both MicroUSB and eSATA ports
Also comes with USB cable and eSATA cables too
Solid design

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Bought for my laptop's 250GB 2.5" hard drive. I replaced the laptop with an internal SSD drive and use this external drive as storage. Transfer speeds are good (being USB 2.0) enough and power is supplied via the included USB cables.

I'd highly recommend this unit. It's built with quality and pleasing to look at. It also fits in your pants without a problem. Cool to the touch even after leaving it plugged in and running for 24 hours!

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.
