1 out of 5 eggs Another recipe for disaster 03/10/2016

This review is from: Rosewill Armer RX308 USB 3.0 Full Aluminum 25mm 3.5" Enclosure with LED indication

Pros: I can't think of any except the USB 3.0

Cons: No cooling fan ... No eSATA port ... LED is too bright ... Flimsy plastic pieces

Other Thoughts: Any disk enclosure without a cooling fan is a recipe for disaster. HDDs generate quite a bit of heat, and that heat needs to be pushed out, and not kept building up inside.

Long ago, an external enclosure destroyed one of my 500 GB drives because of the excessive heat, which taught me a lesson for life to never ever again buy a disk enclosure of this type that doesn't have a cooling fan. That incident is still painful to me.

It's also unfortunate that less and less enclosures are made with an e-SATA port (in addition to the USB port).
Rosewill is sliding into the "cheap" direction instead of climbing up in quality and reliability.
I'm willing to pay for quality and for necessary features (cooling fan, e-SATA, tool-less design), not for flimsy plastic and bright LEDs

ORICO DCAP-5S 40W 5 Port High Speed Desktop USB Charger for iPhone 6s / 6 / 6 plus, iPad Air 2 / mini 3, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge / Note 5, HTC M9, Nexus and More - White
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Multiple ports

Cons: Doesn't sound that it is for the long term

Other Thoughts: As electrical engineer, I do not have any confidence that this tiny unit can handle 5 devices at the rated / spec'd amps.
That's almost 8 amps.
So under full load, this little thing would be VERY hot, or go in smoke, or simply will not provide the specified current..
When I see exaggerated specifications like these, I stay miles away from such products.
I do not own this product, but I had no choice here but to rate it.
My thoughts are confirmed by the experience of some of the verified purchasers.
It's always a good idea to wait a few months after the purchase, and to subject the product to full load, if you have enough devices, before writing a review and giving it 5 stars.
2 devices at 2.4 amps (4.8 amps total) alone would probably make this small unit go in smoke, if it actually could deliver 4.8 amps.

Just my 2-cents.

3 out of 5 eggs Where is the eSATA connection? 11/23/2013

This review is from: SAMSUNG D3 Station 3TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D301TDB Black

Pros: Capacity, USB 3.0

Cons: Lack of eSATA

Other Thoughts: I would buy one instantly if it had eSATA, in addition to the USB 3.0.
What a disappointment!
