4 out of 5 eggsToo much fan noise--but easy to fix this

This review is from: iStarUSA BPN-DE230SS-BLUE 2 x 5.25" to 3 x 3.5" SAS/SATA Trayless Hot-Swap Cage

Pros: Best hot swap cages I've found.
Well built.
Work great.
Saves space--put three drives in two bays.

Cons: These things are loud, even when the fan is set on low. This fact was surprising to me, as the units are marketed as being quiet. But they are far from quiet.

I've installed five of these units--one for myself, and four for clients. Neither I nor any of the clients have been happy with the fan noise--and I'll emphasize that the fans were set on low.

Luckily, there is an easy fix--you just solder a resistor in the red wire that supplies the fan. I used a 47-ohm resistor in four of the units; one client used a 55-ohm resistor in his. We each used what we had on hand. The wires are easy to get to--just remove four screws that hold the fan box on the back. Clip the red wire, solder in the resistor, and put the box back on. You don't even need to tape the exposed wire, because it's trapped in a non-conductive plastic compartment.

This has dropped the fan noticeable to nearly inaudible. Importantly, it mains enough air flow to keep the hard drives at optimal temperatures. We've measured this with process going for hours that do a lot of reading and writing with the drives.

I deducted an egg for the loudness. It would be so easy for the manufacturer to address this. I plan to keep buying these cages--but will always add the resistor before installing.

5 out of 5 eggsvery nice disk bay

This review is from: iStarUSA BPN-DE230SS-BLUE 2 x 5.25" to 3 x 3.5" SAS/SATA Trayless Hot-Swap Cage

Pros: Solid aluminum construction, solid latches, fits 3-into-2 slots. I've installed a dozen of these with no problems at all. Every server that comes through her gets equipped with one of these.

Cons: A bit large, particularly in depth- so is a tight fit for some cases.

Pros: Very well built. No problems with installation.Packaged well.Data Transfer Rate up to 6.0 Gb/s
