Pain in the rear

Pros: -None

Cons: -Top slot kept failing intermittently. Swapped cables, drives, ports, you name it. Was driving me nuts trying to troubleshoot.

-Build quality of the included SATA cables is quite poor. Connectors do not fit snugly. Tried them on another rig to be sure it wasn't this hot swap rack.

Overall Review: In the past, Rosewill used to be good to me. However, I have to say that in the last year, I've been getting nothing but garbage from them, and this is probably going to be the last straw.

RX-C202 SATA rack

Pros: It is nice and small, the doors work well so far. I have one 2.5 HDD in one slot and an SSD in the other, Copy and retrieval of files are normal.

Cons: I am a little confused on other reviewers that mentioned Molex connectors, mine are SATA type. There may be 2 different versions? There is a adapter cable to adapt between the two different styles. In the book, it looks like they used Molex connectors with an adapter wire to connect to the LED's on the front panel. That was not included in my version and therefore no cable to the LED connector. The front LED's do not light at all. There is no wiring diagram for the LED connector, maybe it is just for power rather than HDD/SDD activity?

Overall Review: I could not get my computer to recognize my drives when I first plugged them in. After a couple of inserts and ejects, then seem to work fine.

Great product

Pros: This product is great. I can finally use the floppy drive bay and don't have to use a 2.5->3.5 adapter to hotswap my ssd or 2.5 drives.

Cons: I feel the price can be a bit lower, but when it works when you need it, paying ~$30 is worth it.

Works fine, good price

Pros: Sturdy metal simple design that won't break down to wear and tear.

Cons: molex connectors instead of sata power connectors. Very inconvenient. Literally the only molex device in my case.

Rosewill Dual 2.5" Caddy

Pros: Easy install and works as advertised. Have two Samsung Evo drives mounted in the FDD bay of my new computer and can easily swap out other SSD drives depending on what I need to boot. Convenient and good addition to any system.

Cons: Feels cheap and is a little flimsy, but once it is mounted it is fine.

Overall Review: Wish I had another FDD drive bay to fill.

Good

Pros: Using this to hold my ssd drives.

Cons: The SATA connectors on the back do not have a way to keep the cable attached. If your SATA cable has some tension on it, the cable may pull off the back.

Overall Review: I had to put some tape on it to secure the cables.

Works fine for SSD

Pros: Easy install, fit perfectly in a Rosewill 3.5 to 5.25 converter tray (N82E16817997051). Doors seem solid enough, should survive multiple openings/closings (though I personally won't be hot-swapping).

Cons: No deduction-worthy surprises for me. See other thoughts.

Overall Review: I'm using this for my primary drive which I recently moved to an SSD. As such, I'm not personally too concerned with heat or vibration.

Not sure why it comes with an old Molex-type power cable and not SATA. Of course, most 2.5" drives only use 5V power anyway so not an issue for the drive, but it could be an issue for power supplies with limited molex.

Would have preferred a more robust connector on the board. The SATA cables don't "lock" in place, so be careful and always double check your connections when making changes inside your case.

No ability to lock the drive doors, and doors are spring-powered to automatically eject your drives. Make arrangements (duct tape) if you think you might brush a knee up against the doors frequently.

The enclosure is ALL metal, and I imagine two HDDs installed in this thing might get a little warm being so close with very little airflow. The drive on the bottom is especially cramped. Otherwise, should be pefect for SSD/HDD combo with SSD on the bottom.
