Good external case 6/7/2020 12:10:19 PM

Pros: - Decently priced
- Works great
- Fits a variety of IDE brand drives

Cons: - The power and IDE cables are stiff out of the box. This required a little finessing to get the drive, backing plate, and case all into one piece. This is minor, but can be troublesome with the larger IDE drives.

Overall Review: The product does what is advertised! I would buy again, and recommend them to anyone looking for an external case. The lone con is minor and it shouldn't deter you from buying the product. Good job Rosewill!

More than good enough and inexpensive 12/6/2018 4:58:23 PM

Pros: Works fine on several of my older hard disks, as small as 1.6 GB and as large as 120 GB. Good quality metal enclosure, easy to assemble.

Cons: The really old disks (down to 200 MB) don't read, but not clear whether that is the 26 year old disk drive (double height and probably takes too much power?) or the controller in this Rosewill enclosure not knowing the layout of antique drives?

Overall Review: Recommended for older disks, of which I have a dozen that I wanted to check for interesting data before recycling them. I have a more rugged enclosure that cost three times as much but these will not travel and are probably fine if they do. Keep in mind that the jumper settings on these old ATA parallel are up to you get right (master/slave/cable select etc.)

Bought to switch HD from an older case.....However...... 4/13/2018 5:39:57 AM

Pros: It is a nice looking solid black Alum case. But....

Cons: I bought it to change hard drive from an older case that would always not allow the drive to boot up.....which I would have to take apart the old case to fool with the IDE wire connections. However, I started having more problems with this Rosewill case. First it still would not get going as before even though it is shown on the screen as the E drive.... And then as I try to gain access to the HD folders.....I end up with an "Access denied'" warnings...(using Windows 10) I just don't know why this happened??? So I had to learn how to undo that....BUT still can not have "Full Control" of the drive. And the second problem that came about is the little power switch on the rear WILL not turn the unit Off or On and keeps it powered on unless I play over and over with the switch and then it might turn off.

Overall Review: Except for the power switch problem....the enclosure would be good.....but somehow Windows 10 and also Window 8 ( as I try to get it working in the other computer)....cause the "Access Denied" issues of which I can not undo......and can't understand WHY they would have such a security feature in Windows. I note that other people of external drives also have this issue.

Life-saver for accessing old drives 5/27/2017 9:33:58 AM

Pros: Supports ATA-100/133 drives.
Still reasonably priced.
Solid construction.

Cons: Still uses wall-wart transformer.
USB 2.0 transfer speeds.

Overall Review: Picked up one of these to re-case an IDE data drive when the wall-wart failed on the old enclosure. Since the other enclosure had a special AC adapter (and was no longer made), I had to fall back on good old Rosewill and buy one of these. The drive fit snugly into the case, was immediately recognized and my data was saved! I think the aluminum case might even provide a little heatsinking action for the enclosed drive. If you have a decent size IDE drive laying around, one of these cases is an excellent option for making an external back-up drive.

Soft screws 2/18/2017 8:32:11 PM

Pros: Does the job - was able to access my hard drives from 15 years ago and get the files I wanted

Cons: All the screws are low quality. On my first use screwing in the enclosure the screws lost their tread and got metallic dust all over the place making a huge mess. After swapping in hard drives a few times I can't even use the screws anymore and had to use tape to seal the enclosure.

Overall Review: I had the same problem of soft screws on a Rosewill case fan I purchased as well - made a huge mess in my computer case of metallic dust. Very disappointing after being satisfied with all my previous Rosewill purchases (that did not have any screws)

Fantastic Enclosure! 12/6/2016 1:10:39 PM

Pros: Awesome little enclosure that got me rolling again with my old photo backup that I haven't been able to access in a long time. Turns out the factory enclosure went bad but the HDD was still good. 5 minutes to install that old HDD into this new box and I was rolling, and the aluminum construction of this enclosure is far beyond the cheap plastic of the OEM setup.

Cons: None. This is all I need in a HDD enclosure.

Overall Review: Absolutely recommended, would buy again!
