Pros: installed my drive(WD2500AAJS) in minutes.
with the e-sata connection I can use this as my primary/boot drive or use it as a storage drive.
great price from newegg.
good build quality.
drive LED not to bright.
Cons: the enclosure gets HOT, makes me worry about drive life. rosewill should have put cooling slits along the sides for better cooling instead of a sealed enclosure.
Other Thoughts: a good unit for the price,
but the heat makes me wonder.....
I used to think e-sata was a waste (USB was good enough) but after the speed of e-sata (like having another internal drive) I like it!
This review is from: SilverStone SDP08 2 x 2.5" to 3.5" Bay Converter
Pros: I bought this so I could put a SINGLE 2.5" drive in a 3.5" bay for better cooling in a small computer (dell zino).
have seen a 20 - 30 degree drop in drive temp.
also being metal, it dissipates heat from the drive better.
Cons: it says this in the description:
not for hot-swap drive bays.
Pros: I bought this drive to replace a 3.5" drive (WD2500AAJS) in a small computer(dell zino) for better cooling. have seen a 20 - 30 degree drop in drive temp.
the computer seems to run cooler too.
Cons: only 250gb, but for the money not bad.
Other Thoughts: I now own seven WD drives
and only had problems with one.
