4 out of 5 eggsFor the price its a win

Pros: This is cheap and loaded with SATA port multipliers. Cost is the primary thing working for this unit. A similar solution from HP or Dell without drives starts at around 3,000. I like that there are no drive trays but this also has disadvantages.

Cons: The drive bays are a bit tricky to keep shut but if you lock them they work just fine and stay secure. Originally I had visions of using this as a sort of disk library akin to a tap manual library. I would write backups to 2TB disks and then shelf them after the array got full. The door are a bit frustrating and the thing is so cheap that rather then switching bare drives I just pull the whole JBOD every 6 months, shelf it and throw in a new one.

Other Thoughts: The power supply is not redundant on this (totally reasonable considering the cost) but since its a standard desktop unit it can easily be upgraded to redundant one or replaced. The rails which are sold separately are less fancy then big name system but on par with supermicro and the like.

4 out of 5 eggsNot great for hot-swap, but otherwise a good value

Pros: Holds 15 drives, has decent port multipliers, and there's no messing with screws on the tray-less bays.

Has a standard power supply and case fan if you ever need to swap them out, and accessible cabling and port multipliers.

Cons: When closing the bay doors it's *very* easy to pop open the door(s) above or below the door you're operating, even if the adjacent doors are locked. Since the bays are tray-less this immediately disengages the drive(s). You can mitigate this with a little fancy fingerwork to hold the other doors closed, but I would not recommend this case if you plan to do frequent hot-swapping.

That being said, if you can handle shutdowns to swap drives, or can manage to hold the whole column of bays shut by hand, this is a perfectly serviceable case at a good price.

Other Thoughts: The enclosure is a standard rackmount box with 3x 5-bay mini-enclosures inside. The mini-enclosures support both SAS and SATA data cabling and have standard molex power connectors.

I added Chenbro CK13601 SAS expander in place of the SATA port multipliers (there's plenty of room in the back of the case) -- that makes this a 15-bay SAS enclosure for well under $1000.

1 out of 5 eggsnot worth it

Pros: trayless design

Cons: trayless design leaves enough room for the drives to wiggle aroung, a nudge could shift some drives in the array forcing your mounted volumes to go offline. y cover is very small and the spring used to eject the drive is wayyy too strong. My drive kept popping out on me and it shoots out like a bullet..u can imagine the results..

Very poor build quality.
