4 out of 5 eggshandy little tool

Pros: Easy to transfer a laptop hard disk into the device. 2.5 inch drives fit nicely into the enclosure.

Cons: Tricky to open. Takes a little more force than usual to get the lid to open.

5 out of 5 eggsworks as advertised

Pros: LED light shows it's working. Cable provided seems good quality.

Cons: It could use some foam piece inside to hold disk in place.

Other Thoughts: The disk you install inside can get shaken loose inside of the case if it's bumped (carried in a backpack for instance), then the disk of course doesn't work. This would confuse a less savvy user. Easily fixed by opening the case and reinserting the disk properly.

5 out of 5 eggsSee "Overview" here for opening instructions

Pros: Yes, it really is screwless/toolless. So far I've had -zero- compatability problems with these enclosures, even though I've used them with a variety of operating systems. Also, these are about as inexpensive as you'll find for this type of thing (i.e. USB3/sATA enclosure).

Cons: Not clear at first how to open the bloody things. Also, the top surface is glossy black plastic, which is a fingerprint magnet. (Should have been matte, like the bottom is.)

Other Thoughts: I bought four (4) of these things some months ago when they were on sale. Like other folks have reported here, because these things don't come with any instructions, it is hard at first to figure out how to even open the things. But I eventually worked it out, and I see that here on the newegg web site description of these things, in the OVERVIEW section they now have a nice graphics that illustrates pretty clearly how to do that. (Holding it flat with the sloped end of the top cover pointing away from you, push DOWN gently with your two thumbs on either side, and slide the top off away from you.) Other than that small annoyance, these things have all worked perfectly for me. I just wish that they have made the top cover be a MATTE black plastic, instead of GLOSSY. The glossy top surface picks up fingerprints very easily.

3 out of 5 eggsdecent

Pros: Easy to set up
Can swap drives easily

Cons: The cable doesn't make a very secure connection, transferring large files (or in my case, sometimes large filesystems) can require multiple tries to get it complete. This is a pretty big issue, considering I use this to store movies, which in my case are ~7 GB each.

Pros: Works OK.

Cons: Feels a little cheap, no instructions on removal of cover, broke a couple of the tabs getting it off, but it still stays on so not a biggie.

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work with USB 2

Pros: Good looking case

Cons: No instructions on how to open case, if fact no instructions at all and even being careful I broke 2 of the small attaching legs getting the top of the case off. Got this as the specs said it would work with USB 2, however it doesn't. I tried several ports and had a small 160gig HD inserted. No luck getting it to power up but did hear faint beeping coming from the case. Plugged it into a USB 3 port and the drive worked. I have no problems with a Seagate 1TB Backup Plus USB 3 interface in any of the ports.

Other Thoughts: If it have worked with USB 2 this would be a 4 egg review, but sadly it doesn't.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well! I'm happy.

Pros: Very easy setup. Fits well. No screws needed. Solid, stable, nice black finish. Cable provided is solid and of good length. Price is very nice also!

Cons: Cable is a bit too solid but not really a con...just a heads up.

Other Thoughts: I'll probably buy more when the need comes.

1 out of 5 eggsWill not work on USB 2.0

Pros: Easy access. Case is a bit clumsy to open or close but with a little finess it closes. Looks decent.

Cons: Will not work on USB 2.0. Had the first enclosure and it showed any HDD I put into it as "Read Only". One HDD was new (500GB) and other 3 (250GB) were known good. Could only read files from known good HDDs and would not write to any of them. RMAed it back to Rosewill and just received the replacement and it has the same problem. Will not initialize a new out of the box 1TB drive. Win7 Pro x64 says drive is "Read Only" - the exact same problem the previous unit had. I put the HDD(s) in another mfg. enclosure and they work fine. The only commonality between the two enclosures is I have only USB 2.0 ports on all my computers. Not going to buy an add in card to support this thing when the pc with the add in card would be the ONLY pc I could use it on. Other pcs are laptops.

Other Thoughts: Been doing this electronics/computer stuff since 1968 so this aint my first rodeo...
