5 out of 5 eggsSexy home-server (or simple hot-swap_) equiptment

This review is from: iStarUSA BPN-DE340SS-RED 3 x 5.25" to 4 x 3.5" SAS/SATA Trayless Hot-Swap Cage

Pros: It's really cool! Houses 4 HDDs in the space of 3 drive bays. Very easy to install, very easy to use and swap hard drives in and out of it. It even has a dedicated HDD status light for each drive, which lights up red, but through the same LED (which also lights up blue, for power), it appears purple. It even features key-locked doors, so you don't accidentally disconnect a running drive. You get to enable/disable the LEDs with a switch in the back of it, as well as change the fan speed from crazy fast, to slow. Fast, definitely hums pretty loud though.

Cons: Feels a little cheap, but it hasn't broken on me yet! So really, there aren't any. Maybe the fan is a bit too noisy when it's on its highest setting.

Other Thoughts: I am considering purchasing another one of these for my monster case. AMAZING for RAID configurations. <3

5 out of 5 eggsCool Quiet

This review is from: iStarUSA BPN-DE340SS-RED 3 x 5.25" to 4 x 3.5" SAS/SATA Trayless Hot-Swap Cage

Pros: Looks and stays cool. I have 4 seagate drives and this kept them cool. Spent half a day copying data to the drives and everything stays cool. Quality does come at a price, this thing is worth every penny. Only requires 2 power connectors which is nice since the power supply only has a total of 4.

Cons: None, keeps the drives cool.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

This review is from: iStarUSA BPN-DE340SS-RED 3 x 5.25" to 4 x 3.5" SAS/SATA Trayless Hot-Swap Cage

Pros: Got this one as a replacement for another cheaper make that did not work when all 4 drives were installed. Althought this one was 50% higher in price, this one works! The front includes activity lights per drive. A great help when trying to figure out what is going on.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsFour instant drive slots

This review is from: iStarUSA BPN-DE340SS-RED 3 x 5.25" to 4 x 3.5" SAS/SATA Trayless Hot-Swap Cage

Pros: Beautiful brushed aluminum! Instant access to drives. In my HAF 932, you have to open both sides of the case just to remove a drive, FAIL.

The fan is on a sealed rear, guaranteeing the drives are cooled. It uses two pairs of SATA power connectors, four SATA data connectors. The fan has a lo/hi switch.

The lights on the front are pretty, but I'm not sure what triggers an activity pink blink of the blue lights. A heavy file transfer lit it up, accessing a single file didn't, running CrystalDiskInfo SMART status freeware did.

The units slides in through the front of your case.

Cons: The Cons field is no longer empty, nameless and officious NewEgg javascript coder. Speaking of which, how about improving things ala A-maz-on.: let us edit our reviews and have a mouse hover on the stars rating state it with fractional precision. NewEgg is better by stating percentages for each star, though.

Over time, I have found the reviews-rating the most important thing when choosing what site to but from. I used to buy most things on Bay-e, which has excellent seller ratings, but nothing for the product. Now I mainly use Newegg and some A-maz-on.

Paypal was cool at first, vendors not getting your credit card info. But over time they got too big for their britches. After having made many orders at IgerDirect-tay years ago, I then made a Paypal purchase there for over $500, and Paypal demanded my SS# and a scan of my DL. NFW!!! I couldn't even complete the order at Tiger with a CC because of their agreement with Paypal.

Thus NewEgg won most of my business!

Other Thoughts: iStar's 5 drive version in 3 bays won't work if you have the rail guides in your case. Thanks to the people who pointed that out in comments.

Good luck figuring out what extra SATA ports card to buy with this. My case held six drives (one loose inside) and two optical burners, on a mobo with 8 SATA ports. The two ports on the SAS Marvel died, leaving me with six. I unplugged one burner, installed a 2 port Biostar (NewEgg #N82E16815318001).

In order to get a significant number of additional SATA ports, I bought an Adaptec RAID 6805E controller (NewEgg #N82E16816103231) which has 8 ports. It's the first time I've bought such a pricey set of SATA ports.

But it turns out you can't attach a JBOD to it without destroying the contents! FAIL. I have no spare drives now. The Thailand floods still have disk prices jacked up to double. I can't use it for now.

SNAFU

5 out of 5 eggsLooks and works great

This review is from: iStarUSA BPN-DE340SS-RED 3 x 5.25" to 4 x 3.5" SAS/SATA Trayless Hot-Swap Cage

Pros: Waited for this Hot-Swap Cage for awhile. Did my research and bought it. The Hot-Swap Cage looks nice, it doesnt look like the other cages thats plastic and looks cheap. I have my main drive with operating system locked in the cage. Computer sometimes wont wake up when left for awhile. I had to go to power options to set "put computer to sleep" to never.

Cons: Not really a con, I would have preffered the edges to be seamless rather bevelled. It would have looked much nicer. Should have bought the black or blue since the lights on my Silverstone FT02 are blue.

Other Thoughts: NOTES:
Installed this with WIN 7 64 bit, EVGA 760 classified, Intel ICH10R, w/c supports AHCI = hot swap. Did a clean install by enabling AHCI from BIOS then install WIN 7. You can change keys from registry, restart, enable AHCI from BIOS, then restart if you dont want to do a clean install. Google up on AHCI or RAID.
