Pros: Sturdy, seems odd for them to advertise how thick the sheet metal is but understandable once you see it. Have no fear that the case couldn't hold anything I might want to set on top of it.
Airflow is decent even with the stock fans, which aren't too loud and are adjustable though they lack a connecter to the motherboard for automatic control.
Considerations to reduce noise from moving components taken and at the same time to make accesing those easier.
Cons: Color-Nothing besides the silver offered which clashes with almost all drives and drive bay perhipherals.
Seperated compartments are uncomprimising with motherboards with side facing sata ports.
Other Thoughts: Higher cost than most htpc/micro-atx cases though the quality is there, you could probably get more value for your money on others however.
The included power supply should of been a higher wattage considering the price.
Being SSD ready(which they don't seem to advertise in this listing for some reason) consists of raising screw holes for a 2.5 inch drive underneath the external bays, functional but spartan and I don't like how tight of an angle it forces the power cable to be.
This review is from: Rosewill RX81U-ES-25A 2.5" SATA to USB 2.0 External Enclosure
Pros: Works as expected
Single Y fork USB connection cable
High quality case with magnetic clasp
Nicer screw driver then my last enclosure came with
Came with a extra spare screw, last enclosure was short one
Cons: Included CD is in what I assume is Chinese
Manual booklet poorly translated
Case not designed to hold usb cable
Usb cable a bit to short for my liking
After securing the drive with screws the enclosure requires some fidgeting to get back together
Other Thoughts: Couldn't get this drive to work at first with plug and play which led me to the manual and cd, which were no help. Later discovered the problem was with Windows(Vista nor 7 would read it) and after using a third party program(Easeus Partition Master) to read and format the drive it worked perfectly.READ FULL REVIEW
