2 out of 5 eggs eSATA not working kills this enclosure for me 01/01/2007

This review is from: Rosewill RX353-S SLV Rigid Aluminum Body and ABS plastic panel 3.5" Silver SATA USB2.0 & eSATA External Enclosure

Pros:

It appears to have all that is needed to do the job: 1. USB and eSATA plus all cables. 2. Holds down HDD with 4 screws, great for heat dissapation. 3. Has a fan. 4. Fan is very quiet fan. 5. Very slim. 6. LEDs indicate drive activity for both USB and eSATA.

Cons:

Could not get the eSATA port to work consistantly with 500 GB HDDs from WD and Hitachi while connected to a Qnap TS-101 NAS. Worked TWICE out of hundreds of tries and that was only until it soon locked up. Verified the TS-101 eSATA port worked with the same HDDs and a Cintre CI-355SU2 enclosure. Might be a SATAII issue but forced the WD HDD into SATAI mode and it still wouldn't work.

Other Thoughts:

The Rosewill RX353-S SLV is identical to the Nspire
NSP-HD-343-SSC. I returned the Rosewill once through Newegg and the Nspire through the vendor I bought it from. That's FOUR enclosures of this type I tried to get to work through the eSATA port and it was a no go! I would use the Cintre's enclosure for a SATA port except they have no indication of HDD activity, only for USB.
