  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Fast...good price/value

Cons: Died after only 1 yr

Other Thoughts: WD gave me a 2TB replacement under their 5yr warranty. Bonus!!! Drive is a little faster too. Double Bonus!

Let's see how this one holds up....a little over 1 month now.

Rosewill RX81-MP-SC- SLV 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Nice looking design.

Cons: No Fan. Flaky. 1 of 2 became very flaky early on. This was masked by the fact that the drive I installed inside also failed within 10 months.

Other Thoughts: I ordered 2 of these n May 2010.

Prior to drive failure, I continually had random freezes, drive problems waking from sleep, etc. SO when the drive failed, It removed suspicion from the enclosure.

2 1/2-3 months after replacing the drive (under warranty), I continue to have random freezes, problems waking from sleep but now with increasing frequency.

Since I have a second identical enclosure, I decided to swap the drives. As soon as I did this, the suspect enclosure randomly froze with a different drive.

But now I am just outside my warranty by about 4 months. UGH!
