4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Effective compact way to add drives to your rack. No funky features to get in your way like port multiplexing or RAID -- just 4 drives per SAS cable getting you a separate full performance link to the system for each drive.

Seems to have a regular seasonic ATX power supply in it.

Cons: Super loud. Easily the loudest computer equipment I've ever owned. There is no fan control, they all run at 100% all the time no matter how many drives are installed.
The drive trays seem to have sort of a nice hot swap style to them but still require screws between the drive and "handle" so if you actually need to replace a drive you're getting out the screwdriver anyway. You could move the drives to different bays really quickly though.

There is no easy way to tell which ports are for which bays.

1 out of 5 eggsNot an awesome first experience

Pros: 24 Bay's of SAS awesomeness.

Cons: I decided to do a quick test run without any drives, and without it connected to my SAS controller and it instantly let out a huge pop and smoke started pouring out of the back. Turned it off, poped open the top and turned it back on. The power supply was fine, but the third level bay started smoking severely. I decided to unplug all but the top rail so I could do some quick testing with my Intel SAS card, and moved it to my test station that has resetable fused outlets, and the moment I powered the unit on it would immediately blow the fuse. I tried several times on several fused outlets with the same result.

The three fans in the unit are REALLY loud.

On futher inspection, the units are broken out into 6 boards, with each SAS connector controlling 4 drives. I originally thought it was 3 inputs and 3 for passthrough to another rack, but found that wasn't the case, which disables my controller card from its full 240 device control.

Other Thoughts: It has a SeaSonic Bronze rated power supply in it, which it seems all of the SeaSonic power supplies get decent reviews, so I don't think its any fault of the power supply.

If you have a 2 port external SAS controller that can handle more than 4 hard drives per port, this isn't the drive bay for you.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: 24 Bays, SAS ports.

Cons: Took a while to figure out why my drives were randomly dropping off my controller and not always showing up after a reboot....but each backplane has 2 power connections and only one came plugged in so I had to plug in the second connections using the 2nd 12v rail. Extra molex splitters were required that are not included.

Pros: 24 BAYS for hard drives awesome.

Cons: have a problem with channel 1, not sure why yet.

Other Thoughts: somewhat cheap design (plastic parts) but it is the cheapest one.
