Rosewill RX35-AT-SC BLK Full Aluminum Cover, Metal Tray 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Good Aesthetics.
Good connectivity.
Decent price.
Worked in the end...sort of

Cons: Poor manufacturing practices. Screws did not fit or align with enclosure and took more force to install then comfortable. Power adapter style changed to awkward size and shape for traditional surge protectors.
Would not recommend at this time unless you don't mind modifying it just to get everything to fit.

Other Thoughts: I own 3 of these now. My first two I bought in 2010 and they have been amazing. I swap drives out of them all the time and everything always works the way its supposed to can't say enough good things about them. I think Rosewill must have change manufactures/ suppliers because my new enclosure was not built to the same tolerances or standards.
6 screws hold this unit together. 2 screws mount the SATA interface and electronics to the hard drive. These screws which fit perfectly my older models were too thick to fit in the new one. they did not mount flush with the metal bracket that attaches to the hard drive and as a result the drive would not slide into the enclosure as designed to. I tried my new enclosure with the screws from an old one and it fit perfectly. I ended up grinding down the heads of the screws to give them the proper shape. when you have to take an angle grinder to computer components, something is wrong.
The second set of screws holds the front of the drive in place sliding through holes in the side of the enclosure and inserting into the HDD mounting holes. These holes did not line up as well as they should have and were difficult to get in. But in the end they fit. The last two screws which hold the plastic back of the adapter portion to the aluminum hosing were longer then necessary and took more force than is typical with this type of thing. I am keeping this devise solely because it matches my old ones. I will never take it apart again nor will i buy another.

To Rosewill: Don't apologize, just fix it.
