Encolusre was DOA 12/17/2008 9:31:32 PM

Pros: Cheap...but not cheap enough for something that was DOA

Cons: DOA. Cheap build quality.Its on/off switch is very poorly mounted and was half popped off from straight out of the box brand new.

Overall Review: I read through the other reviews and thought that most of the other DOAs in the reviews were due to user error of some sort. I'm pretty sure that nothing I did would have caused it to not work. I tried it with three hard drives that I know work and none of them would work in this enclosure.

I guess I'll get to see how well NewEgg's exchange policy really works although with shipping cost I might as well as bag it and buy a different enclosure.

Nice, but not great. 12/2/2008 8:47:44 AM

Pros: The enclosure was pretty nice for being fanless. Kept cool while running. Has really caused any major problems for me so far and I have installed Operating systems off of it at a incredible speed.

Cons: The drive is really difficult to get inserted properly if it is one of the bigger brands. The IDE cable is too long for its own good, and ends up bunching up, often blocking you from putting the end cap back on.

Overall Review: This came with a semi-free (had to pay for shipping) attach-on fan as a combo. However, it was useless, as the fan attached on to the harddrive, which then both would not fix in the enclosure. Would of been nice to get a fan that attached to the enclosure instead.

Good price, ok product 10/22/2008 5:49:58 PM

Pros: Price.

Cons: Cheap assembly. Looks cheap when together. I broke a plastic piece that guides the drive inside the enclosure tightening a screw, and one of the plastic sides on the outside wouldn't stay in place on one. That and one other unit one time the drive wouldn't show up. I've bought about 5 though and they're otherwise fine

Overall Review: Not for important backup applications, more for goofing around with drives occasionally.

Gets the job done cheap 10/20/2008 5:12:26 PM

Pros: I bought 3 of these enclosures to put old drives from an old file server into. I wanted to use the drives, since they are just sitting around. Selling the old 120-250gb drives is pretty much out of the question, so I bought these. They are cheap, but they work well. Cases are aluminum, so they are sturdy. Power supply bricks aren't wall-wart type, so they don't take up 3 plugs on a standard outlet strip.

Screwless design means installing or swapping a drive in the enclosure is quick.

Cons: One of the enclosures didn't have the plastic inserts to mount the drive too. Doesn't matter since the drives still are slightly loose in the enclosure. Also, as perviously noted, the power switch could be better secured to the plate.

Also, the power connector cable is slightly long, and is backwards. You have to rotate it around to connect the drive. This is just plain carelessness in design.

Overall Review: They work. Linux picked them up right away. Formatted drives to ext3 with no trouble.

No fan means no cooling. This means the enclosure is as loud as the drive inside, BUT, you will need to stand these up with the plastic holder or they will get HOT. I put the 3 enclosures next to each other and have a small fan blowing across them. Works fine. Drives still run warm, but acceptable temperature.

Good enclosure for cheap. I got three of these for the price of one esata/usb to sata enclosure. Would buy more if I ever have the need.

shameful craftsmanship 10/12/2008 3:56:39 PM

Pros: Low price and it does work. The shell is aluminum.
Doesn't look bad from five feet away.
Since I'm now looking for a eSata/firewire to sata external drive, I'm glad I didn't spend a lot on this one.

Cons: 1) toy-like plastics
2) weird PS/2 Power connector
3) very short power and usb cords
4) embarrassing construction
5) does not come with stands or any way to mount it

Overall Review: It appears as if someone tried to figure out how exactly they could make a working USB/PATA external enclosure in the absolute cheapest way possible. I really can't see how anyone could have cut more corners.
OK for occassional use as a tool, but not for serious backup use.

I put some rubber feet on it.

Nothing fancy but it gets the job done 10/3/2008 9:08:39 AM

Pros: VERY easy to install. Good material for the price.

Cons: A bit flimsy and loose.

Overall Review: Probably not the enclosure you want if you are on the go alot. The side stabilizers are pretty cheap. But for this price I don't think you can blame it.

Good product but flimsy 9/9/2008 7:36:07 PM

Pros: Great price, runs well, does pretty much what it is supposed to do.

Cons: Flimsy design. Power connector is a pain in the ***. Very easy to cause damage to internal components such as IDE cable when attempting to get the end bracket off.

Overall Review: I suppose after paying so little for this product I should not expect much. I did damage the IDE cable after putting a screw driver thru the hole to get the durn back of the unit off.. however, it still worked, so kudos for lucky engineering. However, I am still a Rosewill customer, despite this products lack of flair.
