5 out of 5 eggs Great, cheap enclosure. With one caveat... 01/30/2012

This review is from: Rosewill RX-DUS100 2.5" & 3.5" SATA to USB2.0 & eSATA Hard Drive Docking Station

Pros:

Great, cheap enclosure. Takes anything I've thrown at it but haven't tried out SSD's. I've read the power button dies after a while, I've had two enclosures for longer than 1 year and both function flawlessly. Two other enclosures purchased in the last month and both work as advertised.

Cons:

I ran into this recently but these enclosures do not support anything larger than 2TB drives. To reiterate - 2TB drives work, 3TB drives are not supported in this enclosure. I've been running archives from our server into drives mounted with these enclosures and recently purchased a couple 3TB drives. Able to mount them internally to a station and the drives read / formatted correctly. If mounted through these enclosures they only read out at 801GB. Not sure why that number but that was my experience.

Other Thoughts:

All in all a good enclosure. Coupled with the price, a great enclosure.
