5 out of 5 eggsEasy install.

Pros: Good construction. Installs with ease. Works as expected/hoped.
I will buy more of these in the future.

Cons: The door needs to open more to eject/insert HD.
When inserting HD there is very little room to use your fingers to ensure HD is fully inserted.
For what I'm using it for the 'power button' is not needed.
Unless I'm missing something you can't 'hot-swap' an OS.

Other Thoughts: I use this to swap 2 HDs. One has Win7 and the other XP.
My experience with dual booting is, always, the newer version OS seems to trash the older OS.
This way neither one (OS) knows the other exist and I can use the same PC to do it.
The $15 for this unit is a lot better then $500.+ to build a whole other PC/work station.

4 out of 5 eggsOrico 1106SS - very good, almost excellent

Pros: I would give this 4.5 eggs if I could. It works very well, like most such trayless mobile racks, but this one has a power switch, which I love! It makes hot swapping in Linux as easy as using usb flash drives, and as secure. Go Power Switch!

Cons: There are three minor faults. The first is the difficulty of removing drives, it seems to take too much force, enough to worry about the door breaking. Second, the tongue of the latch is not beveled, you need to use the door latch to close the door.
Third, unlike other mobile racks there is no front grill ventilation to allow air to be pulled in to cool the hard drive. This doesn't seem to affect temperatures much at all in my experience, but I know (from seeing some dust when I open other racks; remind me to fire the maid :) that there is airflow through the other designs.

Other Thoughts: I am happy I bought a couple of these despite the minor cons.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Solution

Pros: This unit is a great idea and works fine too. I wanted a way to take an internal 3TB hard disk drive that is used for backups offline and then bring it back online externally as needed. The front panel power switch allows just that. I power it on when I need to take backups and afterward switch it off. I believe this procedure allows some measure of protection from disk destroying malware wrt backup files. It allows other uses not anticipated now that I have it.

Cons: None worth comment.

Other Thoughts: I like this unit enough I ordered another one. But, it was not easy searching Newegg and finding this solution. I started out looking for Sata switches, hard disk enclosures, desktop front panel switches, etc. Somehow I found it eventually. I am sure there are others that could use one of these units if aware they exist...

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than sliced bread!

Pros: Simple design. No need for molex power plug. Nothing mounts to HDD itself just slides in. Power button for true hot swap ability. LED is Blue and matched case lol.

Cons: Wasn't free.

3 out of 5 eggsSketchy latch mechanism

Pros: Hefty design (internal), good fit, easy to install, front power button, bright dual colored activity LED's.

Cons: Front plastic is fragile feeling, latching mechanism sticks when trying to release HDD, no option for SDD use. Bright LED may irritate some. If any of these break, I won't buy this model again.

Other Thoughts: I bought 4 of these to use in multiple computers for data backups. Funcionally they work great, but trying to release the HDD's they all have a flimsy feel, and they don't release smoothly, eventually I estimate the latching mechanism will break at the front release door. If the front door/latch was made of aluminum or steel, this would be a great heavy duty unit. Funny part is that the power button is aluminum and feels like a quality unit! Since I am using it for occasional use, I don't worry too much, but if you are looking at doing weekly or more swaps of HDD's, this won't last too long before something breaks.

1 out of 5 eggsA real mixed bag

Pros: Has front panel power switching, and an intelligently chosen switch that's easy enough to operate without being very easily mis-operated. Power and activity LEDs, of course.

Contrary to description ("SHOCK absorption unit inside"), the drive frame is solidly connected to the side pieces, so this unit shouldn't have the problems with toolless bays that some others do.

Cheap.

Cons: Cheap. Poorly made, mechanically. Oh, they have good ideas, even little things like the springs to keep the drive aligned if the bay isn't mounted horizontally, but the quality of the metal forming is execrable. Both of the mounting plates were canted enough to be visibly misaligned. One rail was visibly not straight (malformed, as it was only one side), and aside from that the rails looked like two slightly different designs had been mixed together.

Does NOT have "zero-force" SATA connectors (ironically, since with the power switch the need for the carefully engineered staged contacts is largely motted).

No lock to prevent accidental removal, nor any interlock to coordinate power switching with opening/closing the door. It's a really weird mix of good ideas and boneheaded misdesign...

Other Thoughts: I've read (in reviews displayed for some other racks) about doors that won't close without the latch being held open, or that don't eject the drive smoothly, or need enough force to do so that one might reasonably worry about how long the lever's parts would last. I never saw a rack that actually matched those descriptions until this one arrived and nailed both. Sometimes it worked smoothly; a couple times I reached around to push the drive loose for fear it would damage something if I pulled harder on the door.

Overall, would not buy again. If unusable junk could be returned without spending much of the hypothetical refund on postage I'd do it. I guess I cna use it in the project chassis, which is nearly always open for reaching inside to push. :-(

5 out of 5 eggsHot Swap With Power Switch

Pros: Has a power switch.
Solid metal.
Has power and hard drive activity light in one.
Very easy to use as well as uses standard screws.

Cons: Looks used - Looks like scratches or used metal (not visible outside case).
Takes a little effort to eject a drive.
LED is a little bright (just like every other device, I use a black market to dim this but doesn't give it the best appearance)

Other Thoughts: I give this product a 5 star rating because the cons do not out way the pros vs the price (under $15 and others are about $15). The drives are a little hard to eject but because of the solid metal design this isn't a problem. Also the product I received was easy to install a drive and had no problem sliding into the bay. Overall this is a great choice if you prefer a power button for your hard drives (which will help the drive last longer since it won't be in use [always make sure to safely eject your drive first though] and is also useful when performing a computer restore).

5 out of 5 eggsCheap hot swap w/ power switch! + Thermaltake Lvl 10 = dream HDD management

Pros: Cheap - bought for $12, Hoverhound said highest price in past 2 months was $15.

Power Switch - You don't see many other hot swap bays with power switches but it's important!! I don't care if other bays boast their smooth hard drive ejection; if my drive is NOT powered off, there is risk of jolting the drive and potential strain / damage since the disc is still spinning. This has power switch AND LED.

Extra benefit of power switch: You don't have to buy an expensive controller to choose which hard drive to turn on or off. If you have multiple hard drives, this allows you to choose when to power on or off the hard drive in the bay.

It's a HOT SWAP BAY. Easy, tool-less, front access! Everyone should be using this to minimize hard drive hassles.

Someone said they had Molex power but mine was completely SATA.

Takes up to 4TB drives - I cannot test that, but they say so.

If you have the Chinese instant messenger QQ, you can contact support that way. I don't know how their other support options are, but the two people who helped me through instant messaging were friendly, helpful, and more than fully answered my questions - and didn't mind the awkward Chinese I wanted to practice. :)

Cons: It IS a little hard to eject the drive, as others say, but I do not really fear breaking the door. Just hold it close to the hinge, it's fine.

Besides, it's the hard drive you should worry about. Having a power switch means you can safely eject the drive while it's spun down, without fear of damaging the drive.

Other Thoughts: 5 eggs since I see no reason to complain.

I bought 2 of these for my Thermaltake Level 10 GT case. I'm a composer and need many hard drives for my music, so I need quick and easy access. My most permanent drives are in the Lvl10 GT HDD trays which require screws but it's easy to sightly pull them out of the swap bays if I don't want them on when I start my computer. However, they have no power switch so I'm more wary of disconnecting them while running. The Orico hot swap bay solves this. With this hot swap bay I can remove and put in hard drives at will, with the computer running, with no danger to the hard drives since I can power them off. Why would you NOT want to be able to swap a hard drive in seconds?

It's works as advertised, ignore any general bad reviews, they're just DOAs and defective ones that are normal occurrences. I would ONLY pay attention to those that claim compatibility issues, since that's more significant and we can't all test for those. Someone claimed issues with a Hitachi drive; I do have a Hitachi drive but it's in use and I cannot test it.

Side panels were curved inward, making it a little small for my 5.25 bay. I have no idea if that's good or not. It's not a lot, so if you mount with screws maybe it's good to hold it in tight? It may be an issue with tool-less cases since the sides may not be flush with the bay opening.

For me it's a little scary, but if you know what you're doing, you can bend them out (or, maybe actually bending the pieces connecting them to the main body by screws) to make it fit better.

The holding pegs of the Thermaltake Level 10 GT case won't hold the drive bay firmly enough to withstand the forces of taking out a hard drive. so I bent the sides just a little but and put in a single screw to keep it in place. It's perfect now.

I've only had them for just over a month, I hope these things last; we'll see.
