5 out of 5 eggsReally nice, best choice

This review is from: iStarUSA T-7M1-SA-RED 1x5.25" Bay Audio Series SATA Mobile Rack

Pros: Unlike some the other removable drive bays that I have tried, this one has good fit & finish, and good airflow. I have been using them on all my desktop computers for more than a year. The other brands just don't compare. Cooling is just fine even if you stack them one right on top of another. They keep my 2 TB WDC Black drives at 41C, and lower performance Green drives at 34C.

Cons: The fan is the first thing to go. I haven't been able to find replacement fans anywhere that fit, but it is easy to remove the fan and relubricate it, which is usually all that it needs to make it fit for service for quite a while. I've had to do that on two fans out of 11. If you run a program like HDTune or Active Hard Disk Monitor, it will alert you if a fan dies and the temperatures trend too high.

Other Thoughts: If you search around, you can find just the removable hard drive carrier, which is very useful for how I use them. I have about 50 carriers for my 8 drive bays. As far as I can tell, Newegg doesn't sell them, which is too bad.

5 out of 5 eggsRemovable SATA Drive

This review is from: iStarUSA T-7M1-SA-RED 1x5.25" Bay Audio Series SATA Mobile Rack

Pros: Overall a good deal. Installation and use are straight forward. Solid construction. No problems as of yet. Good price and as usual very good delivery on NewEgg's part. Diffidently a good investment as compared to other removable drive enclosures.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It would be a added value if you could just buy the hard drive enclosure separately from the case mount. This way I could use multiple hard drives and not have a lot of extra case mounts laying around

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

This review is from: iStarUSA T-7M1-SA-RED 1x5.25" Bay Audio Series SATA Mobile Rack

Pros: Chassis & rail have full metal construction; Very well-built.
80mm low-profile turbo fan mounted on the underside provides plenty of airflow where your hard drive needs it most.
On/Off switch allows you to leave the drive in-place without actually powering up the drive.
Direct connection between MoBo and chassis, and direct connection between chassis and hard drive means *ZREO* loss in data transfer speeds!

Cons: Not really a con; more of a nitpick, but I feel that the On/Off button should be a little more obvious. (A different color perhaps?) It is easy to overlook that it's there.

Other Thoughts: I use mine to house a 750GB slave drive used to clone my master drive once a week. I then store the clone for safe keeping. Before, when I was using an external USB2.0 connection, it would take 7 hours to clone 700GB. With the iStar, it takes less than two.

5 out of 5 eggsExactly What I Needed

This review is from: iStarUSA T-7M1-SA-RED 1x5.25" Bay Audio Series SATA Mobile Rack

Pros: I tried Dual Booting and didn't really like how things were going with it. I know have two of these and will purchase two more here shortly. NO More problems with my system. I put my Vista Drives in and I have a Vista System. I change them out and have an XP system! TWO Machines for little cash invested! PLUS I like to try out new things like Linux and I will be taking some Server courses. Way trash your everyday system or bring it down even for a few hours by mistake when you can pull out your Everyday system and Put in another drive tinker with it and then swap it again whenever you want?!

Cons: I wish\Hope Newegg will look into selling spare trays (hint even more colors) from iStarUSA I for one will buy some. Hint to iStarUSA I would also like an expandable rack to put the spares in. As of this time my other two will remain in my open bays in a disconnected state. No place else to keep them for now.

Other Thoughts: It's quiet and stays cool. As someone else said just buy them they are great! Oh and maybe change the color of the power button. I'll say no more on that ;)

5 out of 5 eggsBest purchase I ever made

This review is from: iStarUSA T-7M1-SA-RED 1x5.25" Bay Audio Series SATA Mobile Rack

Pros: Well built, Light weight, easy to install, compatible with both SATA1.0 and SATA2.0 (switch in the back). Own fan and aluminum case ensure drive cooling. Drive fits in perfectly.

Cons: HDD LED for SATA1.0 requires the use of extra connections (included in the package) - Not a major drawback tho.

Other Thoughts: I'm running a Western Digital 1TB SATA2 3.0GB/s hard drive in this bay flawlessly. Buy this product with your eyes closed. You will love it.
