5 out of 5 eggsGood value

This review is from: Rosewill RX-358 U3C SLV Aluminum / Plastic 3.5" Silver USB3.0 & eSATA External Enclosure

Pros: Good quality and nice looking for a fair price. Quiet and effective fan. Use with eSATA or USB 3.0 and all cables are included.

Cons: The blue LEDs are insanely bright. Others have mentioned it but you have no idea until you see them in a dark room. They really need to tone these down, I almost took an egg off for it. Some kind of base would be nice when standing them edge-wise.

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these and run one each on USB 3.0 and eSATA, both of which work fine with 3TB HDDs. Would have preferred black, but the silvers were $10 a pop cheaper.

Installation or removal of a drive involves 10 (yes, TEN) screws. Not a big deal, but you won't be using these for quick-swap applications.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product

This review is from: Rosewill RX-358 U3C SLV Aluminum / Plastic 3.5" Silver USB3.0 & eSATA External Enclosure

Pros: I've got this enclosure to use it for the Intel SSD 730. Ok, that was a mistake since I should have got a 2.5in version instead but with some spacers it works fine. :)

Great price due to being on sale, and has eSATA(3.0G) and USB 3.0 for blazingly fast connections.

Cons: So far none.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

This review is from: Rosewill RX-358 U3C SLV Aluminum / Plastic 3.5" Silver USB3.0 & eSATA External Enclosure

Pros: Great enclosure. I also have one of the USB2.0/eSata enclosures and there was no question on which one to get when I needed another. Easy to pop the drive in, screw everything together and off you go. Fan keeps things nice and cool. A lot of times getting something other than USB connectivity jacks up the price, but not with these.

Cons: Lights are a bit bright. If I have it on at night in my office down the hall, I need to close the door or else the hallway is blue. Wish I could shut them off at least.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

This review is from: Rosewill RX-358 U3C SLV Aluminum / Plastic 3.5" Silver USB3.0 & eSATA External Enclosure

Pros: Awesome addition to my system. Aside from basically stealing the show with it's futuristic, stylistic look, it has been incredibly adaptable. Had no problem picking up my 2TB WD 3.5 Sata. I highly recommend this unit to anyone wishing for more hard drive without breaking into the shell of their computer.

Cons: there is really nothing to complain about.

4 out of 5 eggsJust don't turn on the fan

This review is from: Rosewill RX-358 U3C SLV Aluminum / Plastic 3.5" Silver USB3.0 & eSATA External Enclosure

Pros: Yes it work with 4GB HDDs. In case you didn't know, you have to format a 4GB drive using GPT, not MBR.

It has fast transfer speed. The build is sturdy.

Cons: The 80mm fan is noisy and make grinding noises. Best thing is to not turn it on while you're near it.

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work with 4TB drives

This review is from: Rosewill RX-358 U3C SLV Aluminum / Plastic 3.5" Silver USB3.0 & eSATA External Enclosure

Pros: - USB 3.0 is fast
- Nice sturdy case
- No issues with eSATA

Cons: This case simply will not work with 4TB drives. This is my second case, I had my first case RMA'd since I had to power cycle the drive at least 3 times (yes thats right, 3 times), in order for Windows to recognize it. So my second drive works a tad bit better as I only have to power cycle it once. Every time it's the same thing. I power on the drive, Windows sees it and ejects it. I refuse to believe I've just had bad luck and received two defective cases, especially since I have about 5 other Rosewill USB 2.0 cases that work perfectly.

Once I power cycle the drive all is well. It doesn't bode well for the hard drive if I'm going to have to power cycle it every time I power it on. I've tried it on multiple Windows machines and even a few Mac's, its the same thing. This leads me to believe the problem is on Rosewill's end. Shame too, because they do make some pretty nice cases. However my next case for a 4TB drive, I'm going to have to look elsewhere.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Enclosure

This review is from: Rosewill RX-358 U3C SLV Aluminum / Plastic 3.5" Silver USB3.0 & eSATA External Enclosure

Pros: -Affordable
-Very Silent Fan
-USB 3.0 ready
-eSATA ready
-Work as advertized
-Keeps my drive cool
-HDD on/off Switch
-Fan on/off switch

Cons: -Two LEDs that are the same color one indicate that the enclosure is on and the other one is the read/write light. It would of been great if they could of just gotten a different color light for it.
-It doesn't give you a rubber pads for the bottom of the enclosure.
-It doesn't come with feet for the enclosure.
-The HDD rests inside the enclosure however it doesn't have any rubber or soft padding inside it for when you mount it in case of vibrations.

Other Thoughts: Worth the money I paid for it, specially since it's eSATA and USB 3.0 ready.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Rosewill RX-358 U3C SLV Aluminum / Plastic 3.5" Silver USB3.0 & eSATA External Enclosure

Pros: Very attractive case with plenty of ventilation to keep the hard drive cool. Quite and really like the blue lights on it. Easy to put together and plenty of interface options--USB 3.0 and eSATA. I recommend it.

Cons: The only issue I have is that the fan can be a bit noisy, sometimes raddle. Its not that noticeable in an office, but if its in your bedroom next to your PC, sometimes it can be a little annoying.

Other Thoughts: Would like to have the option to turn off the blue lights. Even though I like the lights and it really makes the case look cool, it does light up the room when all the lights are off. Maybe the option to change colors would be a cool feature.
