Pros: I have two of these Rosewill enclosures - this model and an older one with an internal IDE interface. Both work just fine w/o any issues. Be aware that these have USB2 external interfaces, and are as a result a bit slow with that compared to eSATA, USB3, etc... I run WD "Green" hard drives in these and have never had the case get any hotter than just a slight bit warm to the touch after copying large files. Have used the enclosures on both Win7 and Mac OSX computers with the drives formatted as FAT32, plus one is regularly used on my Roku 2 box - all function just fine.
Cons: Make sure you use a "std" size 3.5" HDD, as it can be a snug fit. Also, there are *different* sizes of screws supplied for different parts of the enclosure. Be sure to keep track of what sized screw goes where. The screws are by their nature a bit small, but take it slow & easy with the installation, don't cross-thread any of them, and you'll be OK.
Other Thoughts: Nothing fancy. No fans, excessive lights, or other features that would increase the cost. 5 eggs for being just a good, basic enclosure.READ FULL REVIEW

This review is from: Rosewill RANGER-M Dual Fans MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case
Pros: Good price/performance ratio. VERY quiet. Nice ventilation. No weird, flashy design elements.
Cons: Blue LEDs may be a bit bright for some.
Other Thoughts: No, it's not a fancy Lian Li aluminium case built like something from the aerospace industry. But if you're careful with it, you won't have any problems. I'm very pleased with how my build turned out. Will probably buy another soon.READ FULL REVIEW
