Top Customer Reviews
The Sabrent box was made from an ever so slightly thinner piece of aluminium, and so it's negligibly lighter weight. The Sabrent box comes with a plastic stand, but the stand doesn't hold the drive box securely whatsoever, it doesn't clip on, there are no screws, no nothing, the box just sits on top of it. Easy to knock it off the stand. I recommend getting a spongy material and line the sides of the bracket to give it some grip. The Roswell box does not come with any stand. If you plan to use it laying flat with the fan facing up, I would recommend getting a few stick-on rubber feet at your local hardware store. The Sabrent box is about a quarter inch longer as well, so even cosmetically, they are already a little different.
On the inside, it's far more substantial differences. The most major difference ofcourse is the PCB board that connects to the circuitry and the jacks at the back and the plugs for the drives. The Sabrent box connection point for the IDE comes on a ribbon and the Sata drive connector sits directly on the board. The other important difference is the fan setup. The Sabrent fan sits (incorrectly aimed inside out) in a four clip frame anchored by one screw, with a thin air filter. Please see diagram to locate and use a long narrow screwdriver or knife to unhinge the clips, so you can flip the fan to the correct direction. The Roswell box houses its fan (correctly aimed) in a traditional four screw mount, but doesn't sport a filter. I ordered another replacement fan and a piece of filter to cut. The Roswell fan is much louder than my CPU box, and my CPU box houses four fans, plus two more on my graphics card as well as three hard drives. It's a really well made towercase and it is silent, but I still can't get over one fan in the Roswell overpowering the sound of my towercase. Roswell, please stop using these fans, I'll pay a buck or two more, just so I don't have to go in there afterward and replace them. A piece of filter is probably two cents more.
Although the Sabrent sports a Sata connection, I wouldn't use it. It's really made for older legacy IDE drives over it's USB 2.0 connection. I was getting sustained throughput of 50-60MB/s. The Roswell is built for Sata drives and USB 3.0. I was transfering between 80-150MB/s. I could probably copy a TB in about 2 hours. I'll be shopping around for a few more boxes, since I have a few drives I like to keep offline.
EDIT 2015/03/21: I will have to eat my words after testing a modern drive over the eSATA connection. This drive performs admirably via eSATA on a modern drive. This is a very flexible drive case.
After swapping out hard drives a few times, I've discovered what might be the reason people are reporting this unit stopped working. The same happened to me, but I think the reason is because the extremely tight fit, which I concur with one of the previous reviewers, might hinder connecting it properly. A complete properly seated SATA interface is not only difficult, but also hard to tell. I had to press the hard drive extremely hard on to the SATA connector and even then I was unsure until I powered it up again and it was working. Sabrent needs a little redesign to provide a little more room near the PCB, longer cables to the fan, room for the IDE ribbon, a "snappy" SATA conector, etc. The unit works, but it's a little hard to work with. If you intend to put a drive in it and never again open it up, its okay. Again, I would only recommend this for older IDE drives. For SATA, I would recommend the Rosewill unit, the layout is a little easier to work with.
Installation was a little confusing at first, due to poorly written instructions. I kept trying to pull off the IDE connections from the board. They apparently do not detach from the board - I probably could have forced them off or cut the cords, but I didn't want to void the warranty or damage the case so I just tucked them away on the top and on the bottom of the board.
The case came apart easily and allowed me to insert my drive into the case. Installing my SATA hard drive was a breeze, but for some reason (probably the excess cables crammed on the top of the board) I had a hard time getting the back panel of the case to screw in correctly. It was also almost midnight and I was half asleep, so I'm chalking it up to user error.
My favorite part of this case is the fan - my hard drive is humming along nicely at 35°C, versus my piece of junk enclosure that I was using before running my hard drive at 50-52°C, even after I had drilled holes in the case to help dissipate the heat.
The transfer speeds were about what you would expect on a USB 2.0 data transfer - I sent a 50GB file transfer through from my internal drive to this case and saw an average speed of 25 MB/s, which is what I was expecting given my current PC setup.
Bottom line - this hard drive enclosure is the best bang for your buck, and will do a fantastic job of keeping your hard drive cool. If you don't have one yet, buy this case. If you do have this case, buy another one. If you have two already, buy a third and send it to me! :)
