5 out of 5 eggsSolid Enclosure for 6.0 Gb/s SAS

Pros: -It feels solid and it works well.
-Supports SATA I/II/III and 6Gb/s SAS.
-Options for rackmount or sitting flat on feet.
-Supports 4TB drives without issue.

Cons: Not really an incredible value, you're paying a premium for the goods.

I'm not sure I like the trayless design. It leaves a little wiggle room for the drives and I don't like the idea of my drives wiggling.

Of note: I mounted this on a wall mounted 1U mount so it is vertical, this may contribute to the wiggle room.

Other Thoughts: I just bought a 2nd one of these. I could not find another reasonably well built SAS enclosure that supported SATA III/ 6.0Gb/s SAS via SFF-8088 connection at a better price.

I have them attached to an Areca RAID controller filled with 4TB HGST drives (0S03355).
