5 out of 5 eggsLove this product

Pros: Built well; works well

Cons: Can get pricey, especially when you add extra trays (BPU-HSTRAY) into the equation.

Other Thoughts: I bought the black version approx. 1 year ago and now just bought this silver model (black is currently sold out). There is nothing wrong with the black handle one that I own, I just wanted 2 of them in my tower.

To me, this is a must have product. I do a lot of photo and video (converting family movies from VHS, etc) and that can really eat up the disk space.

This product, combined with some trays and hard drives, gives me limitless storage and back up capabilities without cluttering up the desk. Also, I have cloudrophobia....I want NOTHING to do with the cloud :)

Like the other reviewer says, it just feels solid. Slide the tray in, lock the handle and press the power button.

As another reviewer mentioned, hard drives must be attached with screws to the trays and it does lead to buying more trays.

Although it does cost more, I like the tray concept/design. I like that I am not handling the bare drive, instead I am handling the tray. I like that the tray locks into position and I know the hard drive is seated properly. It may not make a difference technically, but I like it just the same.

I don't switch trays between hard drives - when I buy another hard drive, I buy another tray.

These products work perfectly and this approach works better for me than a NAS or Home Cloud.

5 out of 5 eggsSolidly-Built and Attractive

Pros: Perfect fit and looks sharp in a Corsair 500R White.

Cons: Slightly more expensive than some competitors, but will definitely not take an egg away for that, given the considerable quality improvement over other similar solutions.

Other Thoughts: Put two of these into my new build. One for a 480GB Crucial SSD (with a Crucial 2.5" to 3.5" adapater) and one for a 2TB WD Black drive used for incremental backups. Drives seat easily and then entire unit just "feels good".

5 out of 5 eggsgood unit

Pros: This is an almost identical unit as the Athena Power MR-136SATAB SATA, with a different HD tray handle and branding. Both units are very quiet, trays are aluminum. To me, having one of these and some spare drives this is the ultimate backup and testing setup.

Cons: It's likely fan will be an issue at some point, so I power it down when not in use. Trays are screw on, lending to less easy HD swapping, and leads buying more trays...nice move marketing! Screws are special flatheads
