1 out of 5 eggsNo Good - No USB function- eSATA only on thinkpad

Pros: fan works

Cons: Got this for NAS enclosure and to clone HDD>SSD. Only function that works is eSATA with ThinkPad laptops. Will not work with any desktop (not USB 2 or 3 & not eSATA) or Netgear R7000 router with either USB 2 or 3.

Other Thoughts: I have bought quite a few Rosewill products and am pleased with the value and quality of everything until now. This product is defective period

5 out of 5 eggsNice enclosure for 3.5" SATA hard drive

Pros: Makes a really handy way to use your choice of 3.5" SATA hard drive for backup purposes. Along with ACRONIS this makes a great combination for system images. I use mine to save images of customer's computers, especially during new installs and upgrades. If something goes wrong, it is easy to bring the system back to the point the image was made. Also works fine for just copying files and folders via Windows Explorer. Pretty fast on USB-3.0 or eSATA. DOWNWARD COMPATIBLE WITH USB-2.0

Cons: Actually none that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: I have bought a few of these for friends to use just for backup purposes. Just for backup, I buy the Western Digital BLUE drives.

5 out of 5 eggsInexpensive but not cheap, what Rosewill does well

Pros: - USB 3.0 Speed
- Cooling fan connected to switch, can be turned on and off as needed
- Above said, Al sidewalls and mesh front construction keep this box relatively cool
- Two Blue LEDs not obnoxious-one led for power, one for read/write
-No internal HDD spool-down or power save features--this is a good thing-see below

Cons: - Depending on install location, included USB 3.0 cable is a bit short. Also, compared to the *jungle-named web store* Basics cable I used as a longer replacement, the Rosewill cable has a poor fit at the B (square) end.

Other Thoughts: Most modern SATA drives meant for storage applications (like NAS-labeled drives) have power management features build into their firmware. As such, it is no longer necessary for enclosures to have this technology. What this means is that if you end up with a poorly-working NAS drive like the WD Red that had the bad firmware, you can rule out the enclosure. This Rosewill enclosure too the drive and did its job to interface with it. Now that the WD Red is working properly (following a firmware update), I can appreciate the efficiency of the RX-358. Would recommend to anyone looking for an external desktop backup unit or a basic NAS extension for the current crop of smart routers on the market.

2 out of 5 eggsLights on but nobody home

Pros: Has a fan and esata

Cons: Unreliable in just intermittent use. Died after 4 years as primary backup for raid system and laptops, leaving 2TB backup drive in 'raw' state with corrupted file system (after moving to open port in PC case). No power to drives in case after failure. Led lights too bright.

Other Thoughts: Second unit of this make to fail, first was PATA unit.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: WHEN it worked, it worked well, both for eSata (hot swapped fine), USB 2 and USB3.

Cons: Unfortunately, (and of course only a few months after 1 year warranty ended), this thing started getting flakey. It now gives USB Mass Storage Code 10 errors in Device Manager on all three machines I've tried it on (Win 7, Win 8.1) with multiple drives, all of which work fine in another el cheapo enclosure. Annoying screwdriver-required design (my fault for not researching).

Other Thoughts: Believe the poor reviews about reliability and flakiness. Regretting this purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent drive size adapter

Pros: Precise
Drives fit well
Screws included

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have four of these to mount 2.5-inch SSDs into a 4-bay ACC IcyDock. They fit great and I had no issues with the assembly. The IcyDock is highly recommended too! It makes it easy to pull the drives one at a time, either to check them or to replace them, or just to clean off accumulated dust. Shut down first unless you have a hot-swap array set up.

2 out of 5 eggsProblems with connection

Pros: This is a really nice design. The fan is great to have. Very easy to install a HDD.

Cons: When I first switch it on, both the top and bottom LEDs come on. Windows then makes the sound for sensing something got plugged in. A few seconds to a few minutes later, Windows then makes the "unplugged" sound, and the bottom LED turns off, indicating that there is no activity whatsoever with the drive. This happens on every one of my 4 computers I have.

It is basically a craps shoot for whether the drive is going to be recognized when I hit the switch on. Sometimes it is the first, second, and even up to four times of power toggling to get it to be recognized.

I have tried other drives inside this enclosure to make sure that this was limited to the enclosure itself. I have also tried it on multiple computers, restarts of those computers, with Windows AND Linux, and the same problem occurs.

I'm not sure what to do here, because it is very inconvenient to have to play the lottery when trying to turn this thing on. With the amount of reviews that this product has on Newegg, I would think this would have been worth it, but I am very disappointed.

Other Thoughts: I am a couple weeks past Newegg's 30-day return policy so I'm not sure what to do now. I have bought plenty of Rosewill products in the past with no problems whatsoever, and this is the first time I have had a bad experience with the quality of their stuff.

It would be cool if this could be replaced with one that works.

4 out of 5 eggsCheap and works for now

Pros: So for I like it. the whole thing is held together by screws, on mine all the holes lined up. Data transfer rate seem good, I've had up to 200 mbs with the pc I use. so far I've transferred 4Tb using this case. It has two lights one for power and one light that blinks when transferring data. The fan can be turned on and off, but the fan is quite so why turn it off.

Cons: The two lights that I mentioned are extremely bright and yiu can't turn them off. I don't know if this has to do with my hard drive or the enclosure but it seems that some time my hard drive won't spine up all the way at times kinda like it's not getting enough power. And it seems that this enclosure resonates the sounds from the hard drive inside.
