5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

This review is from: Rosewill RX-358 V2 SLV (Silver) 3.5" SATA to USB & eSATA External Enclosure w/Int.80mm Fan

Pros: Works as advertized, and also has aluminum enclosure. Fan is not too noisy and is helpful for use with DVRs. Includes sata to esata bracket -- great addition. Also includes a good esata cable. With these additions, this was the best price for value.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: If you are going to use esata, then no need to pay more for an enclosure with USB 3.0, as there would be no improvement in performance.

5 out of 5 eggsissues using more then 2tb fix

This review is from: Rosewill RX-358 V2 SLV (Silver) 3.5" SATA to USB & eSATA External Enclosure w/Int.80mm Fan

Pros: i do alot of custom pc work and therefor my external sees alot of use got this drive enclosure to help keep the drive from overheating and it does exactly that and works with my 3tb seagate s3000

Cons: not really a con on the manufacturers side but most people with out the know how wont be able to get full use if they dont know how to reformat drives i noticed with my seagate drive upon reading the reviews i figured this was worth saying if you use disk management to format your drive it will only see 2tb of a larger drive unless you right click and pick convert to GPT disk otherwise your only able to format up to 2tb in most cases hope but again not really the external enclosure manufacturers fault

Other Thoughts: again if you keep an eye on if you large drives and use windows disk managements convert to GPT option it will recognize 3tb no issue. also the blue led is a little bright so if your picky about light in your room this isnt the drive for you but its isnt all that bad its a nice blue light and its only in the immediate area arround the drive it seems to be super bright

1 out of 5 eggspiece of junk

This review is from: Rosewill RX-358 V2 SLV (Silver) 3.5" SATA to USB & eSATA External Enclosure w/Int.80mm Fan

Pros: Looks nice

Cons: Tried to use this with the e SATA cable, but no mater what I did it would put the drive into sleep mode.Right in the process of watching a movie, I looked into the windows settings and made all the changes, but nothing worked. So I used it with USB. Worked fine for about a little over a year then the fan would not run unless you tapped the enclosure. Well not sure if that was the cause but shortly after my HDD died. Too much tapping? I didn't even use this on a daily basis. It was a back up and movie/picture storage.

Other Thoughts: Get a better enclosure, or an external HDD.

5 out of 5 eggsPar Excellence

This review is from: Rosewill RX-358 V2 SLV (Silver) 3.5" SATA to USB & eSATA External Enclosure w/Int.80mm Fan

Pros: The fan gives you about 10°C cooling, which is aa lot, and saves my 320 MB hard drive from junk heap. For some unknown reason it was running at 51°C, and with its max being 60°C, I decided to give active cooling a try. So far with the fan running constantly, my hard drive monitoring program, Hard Disk Sentinel, reports the temp steady at 40°C.

Yes you can hear the fan noise, no its not terribly bothersome - my desktop fan makes more noise than it does. As for the blue light, shining through the mesh piece, its not that bright at all.

Cons: None at all.

Other Thoughts: I'm very glad I got this, the fan is well worth the money, and as usual, Newegg has the best price.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Rosewill RX-358 V2 SLV (Silver) 3.5" SATA to USB & eSATA External Enclosure w/Int.80mm Fan

Pros: see other thoughts

Cons: This review is from: Rosewill RX-358 V2 SLV (Silver) 3.5" SATA to USB & eSATA External Enclosure w/Int.80mm Fan

Pros: Great looking, solidly built external enclosure. Fan is a nice touch to keep things cool.

Cons: Not as described on the website. It is stated on the website that the enclosure works with 3tb drives When the box arrived, it had max 2gb on it. I put a Seagate st3000 in it and it did not work at all in OSX. Windows let me format 2tb of it, but there is still 768gb of unusable unpartitioned space.

I quote: "Other Thoughts: This would be a great enclosure if it were described right, now I am just disappointed and need to buy another one. At the cost, going through the RMA process isn't worth the aggravation."

Other Thoughts: You will have USB limitations when you format. Don't format large drives via USB. User error

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

This review is from: Rosewill RX-358 V2 SLV (Silver) 3.5" SATA to USB & eSATA External Enclosure w/Int.80mm Fan

Pros: Convenience

Cons: unable to adjust LED light

Other Thoughts: For my work, I need to format or delete partition for a lot of HDD and this makes my job so much faster and easy. When the HDD is bad, the LED blinks so I know there is hardware issue right away.

4 out of 5 eggsVery durable, solid construction, but builds up a lot of dust

This review is from: Rosewill RX-358 V2 SLV (Silver) 3.5" SATA to USB & eSATA External Enclosure w/Int.80mm Fan

Pros: I've had this thing for about 2 years, it has survived many 4ft drops off my dresser miraculously. This things seems like its made out of Titanium. It has good transfer speeds for the price as well. It also looks pretty cool.

Cons: Tends to build up a lot of dust very quickly which can potentially harm hard drives if even a speck gets inside of the HDD. In 2 years it actually stopped working twice because of dust build up and my computer wouldn't recognize it. I had to vacuum out the dust and it started working again.

The Rosewill logo faded out after awhile.

There is no off switch for the LED lights and they are bright.

Other Thoughts: There is a newer USB 3.0 version out now. I would suggest you get that one as it's pretty much the same one, but with significantly higher speeds because of the USB 3.0.
