The enclosure is all metal, very sturdy, and seems altogether well built.

The fan noise is acceptable and really keeps the drive cool.

I own three of these enclosures - 2 silver and 1 black, if it matters.

I bought them because they support 3TB hard drives (under Windows 7 64 bit), which is what I am in fact using with these 2 of these(Hitachi 5400RPMs), plus 1 Seagate 1.5TB @ 7200RPM. You have to format them properly (GPT, not MBR) to get the full 3TB (actually 2.8, but who is counting?).

I also own a couple of the version that includes a USB 3.0 port. I recommend those over this version for the added versatility. The eSATA port is being phased out of the newer notebooks. Transfer rates will be the same regardless because internally this enclosure support SATA 3gbs but not SATA 6gbs.

The Seagate 7200RPM drive was running quite hot in my external USB 3 dock, but is now as cool as a cucumber in this enclosure. The fan makes a difference.

The fan is a bit noisy, but can be turned off, as other reviewers have noted. It is an oddball size (80mm), and therefore cannot be easily replaced, so hope for the best. I suspect the huge metal case will provide pretty good heat dissipation regardless.

The lights are obnoxious, but who cares?

This enclosure is built like a Mac truck. It works well.

I recommend it.

Color Name: Black
I've been using this case now for almost a year now and I just love it. I've been looking around for an external case for a buddy and I've suggested this one based on my own experience. I'm glad that I have looked to see what is out there though. There are numerous "look a like" cases out there that don't compare to this one. They all have numerous issues and lots of bad/mixed reviews.

This case came with the eSata cable, along with a device so you can attach the case to a desktop with out having to open the case everytime if you want to use the eSata connection versus the USB 2.0.

I've used about four different hard drives in the case between 1 or 2 TBs and all worked fine. It was easy to swap out the HDDs, even with having to remove 8-10 screws.

Again after looking at other cases I would highly recommend this one for the following reasons:
1. Sturdy case with no issues with craftsmanship.
2. Power supply is durable. It doesn't get hot with the device on for three days, and the connection to the case is a simple plug and fits snuggly with out falling out.
3. It has the necessary cables to use eSata out of the box.

After having problems with my disks running hot in other enclosures, I picked up a pair of these Rosewill enclosures in black. I am very, very pleased with them. I will never again put drives into enclosures without cooling fans. I have found that in external enclosures and desktops alike, lack of forced airflow and resultant heat is the #1 killer of drives.

The Rosewill fan is very quiet, and moves enough air to keep my Seagate Barracuda 1.5 TB drives running at a very comfortable 32-34 C in a room that is 26-27 degrees C. And, the fans are so quiet I do not hear them at all in my family room - hopefully they will stay this quiet as the units age. Right now I have to put my head right next to them to hear their low frequency whoosh.

I have one connected via ESATA to my ZyXEL NSA210 Digital Media Storage Server. Two other esata enclosures failed to work reliably with the NSA210, but the Rosewill enclosure with the very same drive is working great.

The second unit is connected vi USB to a Win7 Home 64 bit desktop and thus far is working just as you would expect - quiet and reliable.

Pros:
- Good connectivity with both esata and USB 2 (USB 3 versions are available)
- USB cable, esata cable, and esata desktop slot bracket included
- Very quiet fan
- Fan can be switched off
- Drives running nice and cool
- Well constructed

Cons:
- Appearance is definitely in the geek category
- No cradle or feet on the case. It's not tippy but I would be hesitant to set it down directly on a nice piece of furniture.

I bought this enclosure to use a former internal hard drive as an external backup drive. Everything went together perfectly. The eSata connection is great and, as an added bonus I didn't have to sacrifice an eSata port because Rosewill includes an eSata interface that you can mount into a card slot and plug into an available main board port. There's a USB2 cable provided if eSata isn't available. Also, the case contains a fan that can be turned on or off independant of the main power.

This box seems very robust and is quiet. I have it filled with a 2 terabyte Hitachi through the ESATA port and it is fine. It went together in minutes with no problems. At this point time will tell but after a month of light use there are no complaints

This unit is well constructed, works well with USB but not with eSata. I got errors using eSata. You will have to go to Rosewill's site and down load a bios update to get the eSata to work properly. After the update eSata worked as it should. (You can read the info on eSata problems on the web if you want to know why some do not work properly)

I have two of these. I use them for backing up my PC, so they get very light use. One has lasted for several years with no issues. The new one had a sleep mode that makes the drive virtually useless, but a firmware update killed that stupid "feature". Now it works great. Whoever designed that sleep "feature" is a bonehead. But rest assured that the firmware update does fix that terrible design flaw.
