1 out of 5 eggsdefective unit

Pros: I do not even know about its pro at all because it's defective and also fried my hard drive....

Cons: I connected any SATA drives, 1TB, 2TB, 3TB, 150GB raptor to a few hardware RAID controllers (i.e LSI) but none of them were recognized. It also smoked my 3TB and smelled the burning smell afterward. My 3TB's logical board was dead and none of my data were accessible. Now I am looking into a donor board with the same ROM and swap it to retrieve my data. Although my data is not important at all, I just wanna try swapping it to revive my hard drive. If you care about your data, please highly consider this.

Other Thoughts: I am a technician with over 10 years experience in hardware, software, server, and network. This incident definitely gives you a warning about this product.

4 out of 5 eggs2.5" Laptop Drives Supported

Pros: Something else that I had found out about this is that the cartridge that you put your hard drives into also supports 2.5" laptop size drives, I had bought a new SSD with mounting kit to 3.5" hoping to put it into the enclosure, found it wouldn't work for the drive connecting. Noticed that there are hole mounts on the bottom of the cartridge and that they also lined up for 2.5" drives, and it works for quick removal of the drive.

Cons: fan still a bit noisy

4 out of 5 eggsGood Hard Drive Cage

Pros: Great cage for doing hot swap or just for easy access to your drives. Haven't had any issues with hard drives being detected.

Cons: Fan is a bit noisy, though I think if you wanted to you might be able to change the stock fan with one that's less noisy.

Other Thoughts: I took one egg off just because the fan is a bit noisy. It's way more noisier then my SS-500 cage in my server and it's got 5 hard drives running.
