3 out of 5 eggsCheap and Functional

Pros: The tool-less chassis makes swapping drives in and out easy. After you take the two aluminum half-sleeves off, the drive drops into the plastic tray and slides forward onto the SATA connector. There's a little plastic spacer you jam into the other end to keep the drive in place, and it works very well. I haven't tried it with an SSD yet, but the USB3 interface is fast enough to make my HDD itself the bottleneck in terms of throughput.

Cons: The two halves of the aluminum sleeve rattle around, the USB cable is quite short and not terribly flexible, the USB connector on the enclosure isn't very secure (it doesn't look like it gets inserted all the way) and it doesn't "snap" into place--it's very easy to accidentally disconnect while moving the enclosure around.

Other Thoughts: Most of the cons are acceptable given the price, but it would be nice to have a longer cable that attaches more securely to the enclosure.

Pros: Fast Install

Cons: Unit died after three days. The USB 2.0 version is built solid. I don't know what happened with the USB 3.0 version.

1 out of 5 eggsNewegg... you're no help

Pros: N/A

Cons: So, all heck broke loose at Christmas.

Myself and Mom sick with HN1N. She has lung disease, it almost killed her. Very long recovery from Christmas on especially with her Asthma. In short, I've been very busy for 2+ months and the first month, I was sick as well.

I NEVER rec'd this item. I have gone round after round with the USPS and UPS trying to resolve it. I had to do both because I cant recall what shipping I chose and none of the messages I kept show that "need to know" info. Thanks Newegg... Like clicking on this:

http://www.newegg.com/Info/TrackOrder.aspx?TrackingNumber=C17115612859394&type=12

just says "ground"... good job Newegg...

Postal service has no idea where it is and phone people at Newegg Completely unhelpful.

I still have the confirmation emails such as C17115612859394 (above) and payment messages etc. I live in an apartment, so there is ZERO reason to leave the item at my door when there is an office 20 yards away.

It is now March, I'm trying to get my life back in order and my families. I am very annoyed with USPS, UPS, my Apartment, possibly neighbors and definitely Newegg.

I paid for something that outside of my control, NEVER arrived to my hands. No one wants to be at fault but everyone forgets that it cannot be my fault. And as a customer, that really ticks me off.

Epic Fail on all parties.

Other Thoughts: I have built/repaired PC's for over ten years. I pull from Newegg and the Tiger people. I may be choosing the latter from this point on.

4 out of 5 eggsNot Bad

Pros: USB 3.0
Toolless design

Cons: Not overly secure

Other Thoughts: The enclosure is speedy and transfers at high rates, but I can hear the drive shaking around inside. If you're drive is on the thinner side (or rather, not thick), you might want to stick a shim of some kind in there.

4 out of 5 eggsDefinition of: Working as intended

Pros: Screwless is obviously a pretty big pro. The others would be that it is light, feels fairly sturdy, and can be powered off of a computers USB port. No more attempting to find the elusive AC Adapter.

Cons: None that I have found so far, though will be keeping my eye out.

Other Thoughts: I needed an external enclosure for the HDD from my now defunct laptop, this served its purpose wonderfully. Not to mention it looks quite nice.

3 out of 5 eggsMehh

Pros: Easy to assemble
Look nice

Cons: I choose this because of the great reviews. Actual hands-on experience is not a stellar as the reviews.
More plastic than I expected, but the real disappointment is how flimsy the connection is between this housing and the micro-USB 3.0 connection. My concern is the strain placed on the connection by the stiff cable.

Pros: Do not understand all the negative reviews, have 3 of these and they work perfectly for me. Getting ready to order 2 more. LOVE the tool less design and USB 3 is a bonus. :{)

Cons: none at this point.

1 out of 5 eggs2 week follow up

Pros: Still has a high convenience factor. Sadly that is all i can say about it now

Cons: as many other reviews wrote it has pore craftsman ship. the USB port is extremely faulty. once it errors out on the computer once it requires restarting the computer to re-register and re-install device drivers.

Other Thoughts: I am looking to return this device. I have other external enclosures made by Rose-will and never had issues this was a big disappointment

1 out of 5 eggsTotal failure

Pros: Newegg always delivers timely and, as a customer for about a decade, I have no complaints... until now

Cons: Update: this enclosure never worked from the beginning. The internal USB connector never made continuous contact with the cable. I was never able to recognize the hard drive for more than a second or two.

Today I tried again and noticed the cable was seating even more loosely than it did initially. I tried to gently rock it into place and then heard the internal connector detach from the PCB board. It is now totally useless.

Other Thoughts: There are reviewers here that indicate their units are functioning great, but enough reviews that mirror my experience as well. That makes me wonder if there are quality control issues with this product.

The design of the USB connector on the internal PCB is amazingly flawed. I'm surprised any of these units stand up to normal wear.

I have a number of other Rosewill external enclosures that are fantastic and I've never encountered a problem with them.

1 out of 5 eggsFail

Pros: Newegg delivered my order quickly. I like the overall design of the product.

Cons: This is one of the very few bad products I have bought from Newegg over the last 10 years. I received it, easily assembled it with my 1 TB 2.5" drive recently purchased from Newegg. However the cable provided does not seat properly in the fitting on the case. The only way I could get the computer to recognize the HDD was to apply moderate pressure pushing the cable in and it would recognize it for a second or two and then the connection would fail. The connector on the case seems pretty fragile too. I wish I had paid attention to the other negative reviews more but it had a higher overall rating two days ago.
