4 out of 5 eggsSmall mods make great backplane

Pros: Very nicely constructed. All aluminum and feels very sturdy. I got one of these included in a 4u server case from here. The rear fan was quite loud on high. medium noise on low. I replaced the rear fan with a Antec tricool dual BB fan. You can find them here on the egg. Now I run it with 3 EADS 1TB green drives and a 750gb drive. All the drives run nice and cool.

Cons: Gave it 4 eggs for the fan although the fan really is about a half egg off. No half egg options.

Other Thoughts: If you replace the fan here are a couple notes. The header is proprietary so you will have to splice it on to the new fan. Also the typical 25mm fan barely fits inside the housing. It kind of blocks cooling for drive 1 and 5. So I put the fan on the back of the housing and even on low it keeps the drives extremely cool with no noise whatsoever.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful

Pros: This is a great piece of hardware. In any file server setup you want to make sure your drives have great cooling, are secure, and are hot swappable in the event of any failure across the array. This provides great cooling and is very quiet on the low fan setting. It does tend to rattle a little if you don't have drives loaded but only rarely. It also looks sharp. I plan to buy two more of these in the next couple of months as my file server builds in size.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: There is a little room to either side of the array and I would like them to include grommets for this space for vibration noise, but you can get grommets anywhere.

5 out of 5 eggswroks

Pros: fan speed switch, individual drive power switch, green HD power LED, orange activity LED, temperature warning sensor is adjustable with a jumper. Only requires two SATA power connectors for five drives. Aluminum trays fit well and do a good job of holding drives/conducting heat.

Cons: if you're interested in a rackmount server case, newegg offers a pretty good case that comes with one of these for roughly the same price.

Other Thoughts: because I bought this with the istarusa case that comes with it built in, it took me 30 minutes or so to realize that the little dots on the right hand side of the photo are power buttons and not power LEDs, this is labeled on the side of the cage which was pre-installed!
