3 out of 5 eggsCaution

Pros: Convenient when you get one you can easily disassemble. With 4 drives, attaching the power to the drives is tight, but workable.

Cons: If you need 1, order 2. The screws holding the drive frame are put in so tight that you cannot remove them. The screws are of a soft allow and because they are so tight, you end up stripping the Phillips Head slots.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat idea. execution is lacking

Pros: Fit 4 x 2.5 HDD(s) or SSD(s) in one 5.25 bay. Fan to help with air flow if you use 4 HDD (s) probably a good idea. Fan is a bit loud for me. Ended up not using it. Overall it is ok. I took a star away for the challenge to install the drives back into the main body once mounted to the center rails.

Cons: You have to take the inner mounts off, mount your hdd(s) then remount the rails to the body. It was a bit of a fight to get the holes to line back up once I had the HDD(s) mounted. The bends in the mounting rails and holes in the main body really did not line up well. Some gentile force and I got it. I will be looking for something better in the future. If you change out drives a lot look elsewhere. If you install and forget it might be OK for you.

Other Thoughts: With some planning Athena Power could make it so you could install the HDD(s) without dismantling the unit. That would be nice. Maybe make it out of aluminum for added heat removal.

4 out of 5 eggsGood

Pros: Sturdy. Connected 3 x 2.5" HDD's without a hitch

Cons: Fan connector is molex female. Which won't connect with any of the molex power supply connectors. I won't be using the fan, but it would require a female/male adapter to make it work.

Other Thoughts: This item is essentially three pieces of fabricated steel:
One baseplate (the large bracket), and two small support pieces where the hard drives connect to.
The two pieces unscrew from the base, you screw your hard drives into the two pieces, and then rescrew that unit to the base.
It's simple and it works. All of the screws are provided
I have not tried the fan because the connector is wrong.
I am using this for a DIY JBOD / DAS
