Categories > Server Accessories > ASUS > ASUS PIKE 2308 Flexible Storage Options for End Users

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Expensive but for some of us necessary.
Pros: It works very well. I wanted it not for a RAID setup but for a JBOD setup for storage. I now have 8 additional SATA3 ports and no software drivers were needed for the install. For just adding a bunch of extra drives it is great and couldn't be easier.
Cons: Seems to be a rather expensive proposition. But I guess they figure if you are building a dual CPU system you can afford it (or will afford it). They make you decide between the extra PCIe slot that could have been there or 8 more SATA3 ports for $140 on sale. You look at your board and your see these 8 beautiful blue SATA3 ports just beckoning you to plug a drive into it. But alas, 'tis for naught until thee forketh over thy extra doubloons.
Other Thoughts: They take away a PCIe slot and wire it for the PIKE card and then ask you to finish the job for more money. They should have just finished the job and charged a little extra or not and given you the extra slot. If they are going to take it away, then finish the reason for taking it away.
In the end I had to buy it (a workstation needs storage!) and once I got over the initial shock of having to buy an add-in card that should have been included. I love it. I guess some people just sum it up as expansion potential.

Categories > Server Accessories > Chenbro > CHENBRO SK33502T2 3 x ODD Bays to 5 x 3.5" Hot-swap HDD Bays

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Excellent High Density Drive solution
Pros: Good design, supports 2.5/3.5" SATA HDDs and 2.5" SATA SSDs, has integrated USB ports, has integrated temperature controlled fan.

This solution is designed for Chenbro cases. However, if you have a tower case with 3 "open mount" 5.25" drive bay stack, it will fit. By "open mount", I mean that there are not any tabs or protruding guide pins inside the mounting area. Most tower cases have sheet metal bent inward to guide the entry of individual drives. Those will not hold this cage.

In this case, I was using a Chenbro 4U rack case and could have easily put one of these on each side. See part No. N82E16811123155.

The cage comes with all the mounting hardware for the drives (whatever size they are) and a USB cable to extend the USB ports to your motherboard.

The drive bays support hot swap (as long as the motherboard or drive card will) and are exactly the same Chenbro part that is used in all other Chenbro drive cage solutions.

The integrated temperature controlled 80mm fan has a dip switch setting that permits you to set it for two different temperature set points.
Cons: A little bulky...

The circuit board and the integrated fan do add a little depth to the drive array. Therefore, make sure that you have an ample amount of depth available. For the full tower cases and the deeper rackmount cases, this should not present a problem.
Other Thoughts: The assembly requires 2ea 4-pin Molex power connectors. This is not really a Pro or a Con, just something you need to know so you can check your PSU for availability.

Other Thoughts: If you want a better choice, look at Supermicro web site....

Categories > Server Accessories > Norco Technologies Inc. > NORCO RL-26 Heavy-Duty Slide Ball Bearing Rail

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Rails that are, well, rails.
Pros: Heavy duty. Nice and greasy.
Cons: Feels stiff the first 4 inches sliding out, but how often do you really need to extend it?
Other Thoughts: I'm new to racking things and I happened to check the reviews of this the day It arrived. Like others, I ordered this because it was listed as compatable with my NORCO RPC-4220. Several recent reviews said they had to drill new holes to make it fit. I had zero issues with it. I tried to recreate the holes not lining up, but that can only be done if the rail is put on backwards. Rotating 180 degrees fixes that. If there were any issues with the rails before, they've been resolved

Categories > Server Accessories > iStarUSA Inc. > iStarUSA TC-RPSL20 20" Sliding Rail Kit for Most Rackmount Chassis

Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3 Work fine
Pros: These installed easily. Slots allowed flexible installation without having to drill. They slide nicely under a 2U chassis load.
Cons: While adequate to the task, they are a bit high priced for light duty rails.
These rails do not lock in the extended position thus allowing the equipment to move in/out while working on it.
Other Thoughts: Good, light duty rail system. Will likely by again, but will shop for better price.
