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.

1 out of 5 eggsTotal Junk

Pros: None. Junk

Cons: DOA! Total Junk.

Other Thoughts: Hard drive does not come out easy. Almost feels like the doors going to break. New Egg is selling this junk for cheap because they know they are junk and not worth the hassle of returning. Don't buy this.

3 out of 5 eggsNot as good as i expected

Pros: Has a flat face plate which is good for cases with doors like the Fractal Define R4 (my other bays have issues with this)
Great wiring layout, nice and clean
Feels like a very sturdy solid product
The power switch is a DPDT switch so you can mod a fan/leds onto these

Cons: Hard to remove disk drives, feels like the door could break trying to get it to release
You need to hold the door latch open for it to close, you can't press on the door latch to close it. you can apply some pressure to the back edge of the release lever to get it to work also, the part left of the hinge
The part that connects the tray to the sides of the 5.25" bay don't use rubber vibration dampeners like my other trayless bays (those dampeners do make a noticeable difference)
The roller that pushes the HDD out gets stuck in the airflow holds on my ICY DOCK 2.5" to 3.5" adapter, this is not a issue on my other bays, though that may just be stacking with the hard to remove a HDD issue.
When the HDD does finally come out it comes fast, not gently like my other bays, I highly recommend turn the HDD off at the power switch before removing to prevent the jolt of force from damaging the drive.


HDDs are hard to eject (-1 egg)
Lack of vibration dampeners (-0.5 eggs)
Tricky door latch (-0.5 eggs)

Other Thoughts: I have 2 other tray-less hot swap bays search newegg for each of these
N82E16817997016 - Rosewill RX-C525
N82E16817998020 - StarTech HSB100SATBK (I have a older version without a led)
This is this 2.5 to 3.5" adapter i have for hot swap bays
N82E16817994083 - ICY DOCK MB882SP-1S-2B
I actually prefer these two that I have hidden behind the easily removed faceplates on my Define R4 case because the HDD is easily removed/interested

While the electrical design on these ORICO bays is much better the internal physical aspects and mechanical functionality are lacking by comparison. When i say the electrical design is much better i mean it is actually worth using and not disabling/removing

If you just want to leave a HDD in this and turn it on for backups you will be very happy with this one, if you swap drives a lot look at the 2 bays i listed above

I was kinda hoping i could swap my bays with these since these have a flat faceplate

If hot swap does not work you need to set your SATA controller to AHCI mode not IDE mode, I think RAID 1 supports hot swap also

I hate to give this 3/5 eggs, but I can't give it 4/5, probably could say 3.25/5

These would be more ideal than my other bays for a NAS environment where the LEDs are would let you know if the drive has failed

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Nice Activity lights
High Quality Design (and lowest price)

Cons: A bit hard to take drives out but so what that just means they are more secure in the SATA pins.

Other Thoughts: Mine came with SATA power and not MOLEX and that was good. I am using two and they both work fine.
