Categories > Server Accessories > Rosewill > Rosewill RSV-SATA-Cage-34 Black 3x5.25" to 4x3.5" Hot-swap SATAIII/SAS Hard Disk Drive Cage

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Flawless
Pros: 4-in-3, simple yet effective design. Trays slide in and out without much effort. A big plus is compatibility with the RSV-L4000 server case and NZXT cases.

Compatible with 2.5" and 3.5" drives. Only needs 2 IDE power connectors to power all four SATA drives.

The 120mm fan is changeable. I used a Noctua NF-S12A FLX for silent operation, plus it already has a short cable so there isn't much extra slack lying around your case (nothing a little zip tie treatment won't fix, however).

CHEAP! Other backplanes of this size with similar features run much more expensive than this.
Cons: It's made primarily of plastic, but that's to keep the overall price as low as possible.
Other Thoughts: Used in an NZXT Phantom. So yes, it is cut to fit tool-less cases, even with guide rails.

Categories > Server Accessories > Rosewill > Rosewill RSV-R26LX 26" 3-sections Ball Bearing Sliding Rail Kit for Rackmount Chassis

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Pretty OK for the price
Pros: they work OK

Rosewill gives you a ton of hardware with them

feel pretty solid once installed

very good for the price
Cons: The directions are terrible, they look like a photocopy of a photocopy. its pretty easy to figure out how to put together though. Don't bother with the directions online, they're the same terrible directions that are included in the box.

mine slide kind of rough, but they work.

I had to cut the handles on my case to allow it to slide in to the rack all the way

the ears that mount the rails to the server rack feel like cheap pot metal
Other Thoughts: I have an HP 10647 G2 rack, and I used these rails on an RSV-R4000 chassis. I had to notch where the handles screw into the case to get the case to slide all the way into the rack. This is because the "ears" that attach the sliders to the server rack have little channels on the top and bottom, and the channels hit the handles on the case and keep it from sliding in to the rack all the way. There is probably a way around having to notch the handles, but repeatedly taking the case out of the rack to adjust everything got real old real fast, so I notched the handles and moved on.

the "outside" sections of the rails slide very smooth, but once the "inside" part (the rail section that mounts to the case) engages, it gets a little hard to keep sliding the case out of the rack. I may just need to put some grease on them.

they are long enough that I can slide the case all the way outside of the rack and work inside the computer. When I fully extend the rails, they still feel solid

my desktop is housed in the RSV-R4000 chassis. I have a server in a 3U chassis and I plan to buy another set of these rails for it. They are cheap, but they work pretty well.

Categories > Server Accessories > Rosewill > Rosewill RSV-SATA-Cage-34 Black 3x5.25" to 4x3.5" Hot-swap SATAIII/SAS Hard Disk Drive Cage

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Great value
Pros: Price
basic features at a basic price.
Cons: LED cable could have been routed better
Other Thoughts: Installed two of these into an Antec 900 case with a Gigabyte 990FX main logic running ESX 5.1. One of these is connected to a PERC 6 raid card (4 SATA drives, RAID 5), the other is connected to the SATA ports on the mainboard supporting 5tb drives. No operational issues with either.

Mounted this with the drives flush to the front of the case to leave more room (normally they are recessed in about 1/2 inch).

Other reviews have complained that the connectors are on the wrong side (motherboard side) making it hard to reach the connectors once installed. The advantage to this is that the fans stick out the farthest. If those had been on the motherboard side, there would be a greater chance of hitting the main board.

INSTALL NOTE: There is a cable for the LEDs that runs from the back of the unit to the front. This cable has some slack and can snag things on install/removal (tabs on the case drive slots). You can temporarily pull this cable into the enclosure to take up this slack (pull the trays).

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 bad design
Pros: The cooling part is facing the wrong side! It rip off the space of my other PCI card. This happens on my server board KPGE-k16, ironically from same manufactor, ASUS.
Cons: Not even bother to run, no idea if it works. Think it should work.

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

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 Beware - threaded holes
Pros: They seem like nice rails
Cons: The mounting holes in the L brackets are threaded, which makes them incompatible with the threaded holes in my rack.

This is not mentioned anywhere in the product description, and isn't obvious from the photos.

Categories > Server Accessories > iStarUSA Inc. > iStarUSA BPU-124DE-SS 1 x 5.25" to 4 x 2.5" SATA/SAS 6.0Gb/s Hot-Swap Backplane RAID Cage

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Good Quality Drive Cage
Pros: All machined aluminum construction, dual fans, very nice looking. Full speed 6 GB/sec transfer rates perfect for RAID SSDs.
Cons: Fans are quiet but not silent. Sliding the drive trays back into the unit can sometimes be tricky. It is easy to accidentally miss engaging the rails on one side. The key is to not "force" a drive in if it puts up resistance as it is likely not on both rails.
Other Thoughts: These are great cages. I have four of them for a large scale SSD raid.
