1 out of 5 eggsNot a reliable product

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

Pros: Comes with a fan and cables.

Cons: Stopped working after a year.

Other Thoughts: I purchased 3 of these over a span of 1 year. Two have already stopped working. I thought it was the HD at first. Remove HD and docked it. HD was fine. I put HD back in enclosure things worked for a few days then HD was gone again. Tried new HD and got same results.

The second enclosure did the same thing a few months later. I am just waiting on the third one to go out, it's only a matter of time.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's doing the job okay.

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

Pros: Relatively inexpensive, fan-cooled, eSATA connection.

Cons: None in my opinion.

Other Thoughts: It's been up and running 24/7 for two months. Sits on top of my workstation under my desk. Fan noise is not noticeable over other ambient noise.

4 out of 5 eggsvery good enclosures

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

Pros: These enclosures are excellent - quality construction. I've owned several over the years and they all still work after heavy use. The fan on one of the older units is getting a bit noisy, but other than that - no problems.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Note: These are USB 2 - eSATA ll models.
I just hope Rosewill continues the same quality with their USB 3 - eSATA lll models.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than Expected!

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

Pros: Well Built and heavy enough that the cords don't pull it around the desk.
This enclosure was easy to place a drive in and works like a charm. No noise from the cooling fan and the lights in the end of the drive are a warm blue.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Even on the USB2 port, it works very well.

4 out of 5 eggsCool Hard drive

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

Pros: Hard drive fits, can switch fan off and on.

Cons: I wanted to use this as a eSATA drive but there is no way on earth that will ever happen no matter what I try.

Other Thoughts: Only works with USB 2.0, but it works.

5 out of 5 eggsRX-358 V2 SLV

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

Pros: eSATA and USB 2.0

Cons: The fan, it isn't loud but makes a ticking noise.

Other Thoughts: This is the second one of these I've bought. My first one, a black one is still working about a year now. The fan isn't loud but it makes a ticking noise, both of them. In a quiet room you can hear it but you can turn it off. I'm not taking any eggs out of the basket for that.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Purchase

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

Pros: I was searching for an external enclosure for my 1TB WD 3.5" drive and this is it. The enclosure feels extremely sturdy and was easy to assemble. After assembly, I was able to power it up and plug it in to my computer. No problems yet. ESata, USB interface, HOT SWAP capable..I don't think I'll ever try that...but cool feature.

Cons: Heavy? For me not a con, but definitely not something I would not want to lug around on business. Requires external power

Other Thoughts: Great buy, don't understand why the Silver model was priced way below the black model, but I have seen this sort of thing happen before...silver just isn't that popular sometimes.

5 out of 5 eggsRosewill RX-358 V2 SLV (Silver) 3.5" SATA to USB & eSATA External Enclosure w/Int.80mm Fan

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

Pros: Fast shipping from Newegg.
Terrific price.
3 TB drive runs really cool.
I bought one of these three weeks ago and liked it so well that I bought a second one. Both worked perfectly when I received them. Installed my new 3 TB Seagate ST3000VN 000 NAS drives and backed up 888 GB of data from my NAS. These are exactly what I needed.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: DRIVES LARGER THAN 2 TB SUPPORTED

I installed my two new Seagate ST3000VN 000 3 TB NAS hard drives in the RX-358 enclosures and connected them with eSATA cables. Windows 7 detected them and automatically installed the correct driver. I then allowed 7 to initialize each disk.

Using the “Disk Management” utility I right clicked in the “Disk 1” (or Disk 2) area that said “Basic 746.52 GB Online” and selected “Convert to GPT disk” The display changed to “Disk 1 Basic 2794.39 GB Online”. Finally, I right clicked in the “2794.39 Unallocated” drive area and performed a normal NTFS format procedure.

Notes:

Both 3 TB drives work with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 14.04 & 14.10. Windows XP & earlier only support the Master File Table (MFT) architecture and can’t work natively with drives larger than 2 TB.

I could not convert the drive to GPT format through the USB interface. However, once converted & formatted, I can read & write data to the drive normally through the USB interface.

1 out of 5 eggsDisappears from system

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

Pros: Quiet fan. Is capable of working for hours on end before disappearing.

Cons: Periodically disappears from system. Reboot required to see it again.

Other Thoughts: I bought this in June, but didn't get around to putting a drive in until a couple of days ago (of course after the 30 replacement period). I have the same enclosure in black that has worked perfectly for 2 years. However, this one has the "disappearing" problem that other reviewers have mentioned. I put a new WD 2TB Black that had passed the WD diagnostics short and long test AND passed SpinRite testing. I used robocopy to try and copy over about 500 GB. Three times during the process - and each time after several hours into the copy - it would throw an "access is denied" error followed by repeated "The system cannot find the path specified." errors until I stopped the batch file. Windows 7 Explorer and other file managers reported the drive missing. Control Panel|Disk Management could not see it either. A PC reboot brought it back for another couple hours of copying. After the third error cycle I gave up and put the drive in my StarTech dock to finish the copy. Very disappointed.
