Rosewill RCW-618 USB to IDE / SATA Adapter - Supports Windows 7
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs Most excellent 12/30/2012

This review is from: Rosewill RCW-618 USB to IDE / SATA Adapter - Supports Windows 7

Pros: Works

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This might actually be the best thing since sliced bread. Everything feels solid and it just worked.... The instructions are clear (do read them). Drive cases are a nice plus. It was worth the price even if I never have to use it again in my life.

Seagate Backup Plus 500GB USB 3.0 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Easy plug and play, reasonably fast if you can utilize the usb 3, quiet, good build

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Love it. Super easy backup. Nothing to do except plug it in and start writing your stuff. It even appears you can connect it via sata by removing the top usb connector panel (pull the whole top rectangle straight out in the direction of connectors). Haven't tried that, so don't quote me on whether or not it works, but I can't imagine why they would make it so easy to access if it didn't.

Western Digital Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Quiet, fast, great price

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Okay, so, "bare drive" does not mean the drive has a high chance of failure. I saw that in another review and that's just absurd. Bare drive means it's a bare drive. Meaning all you get is the drive. No screws, no cable, just the drive.

Functionally, so far, it's perfect.

You will need screws (6/32), sata (sata iii if your mb supports it) and you will need to format/partition it after install. In win7 it's super easy. Bios recognizes the drive but you have to go into drive management and assign it a letter and format it before it shows up in my computer. Google can tell you how. If it doesn't show up in my computer right away it does not mean it's broken.
