3 out of 5 eggs

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

Pros: * Reasonably cheap.
* Trayless design has advantages - no trays to lose or break, just drop in your drives and go.
* Included fan can be replaced easily - remove the screws holding the back cover on and pop out the unit.
* Activity lights for individual drives!

Cons: * The lever mechanism used to remove the drives is weak - I've broken the mechanism on one of these by pushing too hard while inserting the drive.
* The bay locks are worthless. If you're lucky, they'll require a little bit of extra force to open the bays when locked. If you're unlucky, they'll make no difference whatsoever.
* The springs used to pop the doors open are likewise worthless. At best, they'll fulfill their function. At worst, they'll prevent the bay doors from closing with a drive inserted, or allow the door to close but then pop it open if the case is even slightly jostled. You can remove these or bend them how you need them pretty easily, but it's extra time and frustration.
* The fan power connector is tiny - conventional three-pin fan headers like you'd find on case fans are too big. Keep that in mind if you're looking for replacements, as it's likely you'll have to wire the new fan to the existing connector rather than simply replacing the entire unit.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid construction

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

Pros: Solid construction, works as expected

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: These drive cages are outstanding. I have a total of 5 of these now and don't regret them at all. The only reason I go for any other drive cage now is if I need something for a single 5.25 drive panel or I am using 2.5 inch drives.

The drive bays seem solid, adequate cooling, and are easy to install. The drives have all slid right in and been recognized without any issue. Very pleased with this product.

4 out of 5 eggsBeware of > 2TB drives

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

Pros: It is a well-designed and sturdy unit. Connections are easily made.

Cons: It would not let my 3TB drives be recognized by the BIOS.
Plugging them back in direct to the motherboard works fine.
For whatever reason, beware that these units seem to have a 2TB HDD limit.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Product

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

Pros: Fit, function, build quality are all excellent.

Cons: It is not free?

Other Thoughts: Bought this to provide hard drive backup options in my WHS server. It works without a single issue. Highly recommended. I am running a 2.5 inch hard drive in the lower bay and two 3.5 inch, 1TB drives in the upper bays with not a single hickup. Even though there is no claim to being able to support the 2.5 inch drive, it slides right in!

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome but...

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

Pros: Fits description. It is the best tool-less, tray-less drive bay I have ever seen.. the activity lights are great. hardware and mechanisms are solid. the fan moves air. It locks. Great overall product. Looks sooo mean too (in a good way).... wish I could give it 4.5 eggs...

Cons: The fan is loud on the "high" setting. When I say loud I mean I can hear it if I put me head near the case. For server or field work this would be no problem. I do audio production so any noise other than the intended source is bad. I just switched the fan to "low" and it still moves plenty of air and I can't hear it at all. I wish 60mm fans where easier to come by so I could change it over to a quieter one. Also the SATA connectors are really flimsy but SATA connectors by design are pretty flimsy and only meant to be plugged and unplugged once or twice.

Other Thoughts: I want anther. So far all iStarUSA products I have bought have been right on.. Keep it up... New Egg is also great...

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice and trayless

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

Pros: Fast tool less install, trayless, three lockable SATA cables, hot-swappable, led on-off option, lockable, two power inputs to power three HDD's, and mostly aluminum construction that fits in a two bay space.

Cons: Fan has slight noise but that's just being picky.
