4 out of 5 eggsStill doing GREAT

Pros: Execellent build quality (see previous review)

Cons: sleeve bearing fans (see previous review)

Other Thoughts: I posted a review about this item on Feb 6, 2013. At the time I said so far it was great, but I only had 1 drive installed, it's only been a week, and time will tell.

Now it's been 6 months so here's a followup. I've had it fully populated with 6 drives for nearly the entire time now, and it's still doing terrific. The system is running software RAID-6 in Linux, and it's been online 24x7 ever since the first review. All drives continue to run very cool - system log shows all temperatures staying between 28 to 29 deg C. Fans are still working well.

Previous review includes a lot more detail about the product - just wanted to add here the additional perspective of time.

4 out of 5 eggsLooking great so far!

Pros: Enclosure is one rock-solid piece of aluminum, build tolerances are excellent, red/blue drive activity indicators routed to tray fronts via light-pipes, trays have positive latching action, separate per-slot SATA connectors, single molex power connector, 2 40mm fans. And it looks great too.

Cons: "Less-then-desirable" (substituting for another word that newegg's system would not let me use) sleeve bearing fans - this is the only reason I could not give 5 eggs - there is otherwise nothing else to complain about.

Other Thoughts: Included fans appear to be standard 40mm square, 20mm deep 12v fans, easily replaced. I figure I will just run these until they start to squeal, then replace them with something with better expected lifetime. Intended application is for a 24x7 file server so the hours will rack up quickly...

Currently running with just 1 drive in the cage (others are on the way, still awaiting delivery). But that one drive is sitting at a nice cool 28 deg C while the RAID software is building a stripe into it at 60MB/sec. The cage is mounted in the top external 5.25" bay of a mid-tower case so the airflow in that corner is otherwise pretty bad. Probably the heat will go up when I put additional drives in the cage but right now I'm fairly impressed with apparently the job those two little 40mm fans are doing. The fans by the way are not even running at full speed - it appears there might be some thermal monitoring in there too.

Kit also arrived with 6 silicone "drive wrappers" (?) for lack of a better term. Think of it like a silicone ipod skin but for a laptop drive. They seem to have nothing to do with the cage; no idea why one would want these things. But whatever..

Note that it's only been a day so my glee over this of course might be premature. But so far it looks great!

5 out of 5 eggsReally neat solution

Pros: Great for cramming 9mm drives into a half-height bay. I replaced 2 4 bay units with these, gaining 4 additional bays. They are SATA, not SAS - not a problem with SSD's but something to be aware of. Decent build quality and

Cons: Weird included useless silicone snuggies. I dunno why you'd want to haul around trays in them, or why haul them around at all. Cooling and power seem optimized for SSD's, I would not run 7200 RPM SATA drives (10K or 15K SAS drives not an option).

Other Thoughts: Neat product, glad I stumbled across the 6 bay as opposed to more common 4 bay.

4 out of 5 eggsdisagree with previous

Pros: very nice design. Independent host connection for each drive is not the case for every cage of this type. Many use shared SATA ports, whereas this is a true 6 x 6 arrangement. The use of the legacy 4 pin molex power connector provides solid connection and reliable current transfer. Dual fans, ++
I do wish it was a screwless tray design and extra trays were readily available through retailers.

Cons: none found

Other Thoughts: "N/A" had stated in his/her review that nowhere in manual or datasheet does it mention a performance spec of SATA III 6.0Gb/s... I would beg to differ. I visited iStarUSA website and located the product page. The page, and both pieces of documentation do in fact (all) indicate such rating. Simply because a given test setup does not produce the same results as the manufacturers does not suggest that the manufacturer is misleading or exaggerating. Many factors may give different results.

5 out of 5 eggsThe bad review is wrong

Pros: Maybe the only 6 x SSD SATAIII 6.0Gb/s enclosures out there that fit in the 5.25'' space. Easy to isntall. No Problems.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Using a LSI 16port internal raid card. ROC. With 6 x Vertex3 240GB SSD, XFS fileformat, I am getting speeds of 1500MB/s. MB not Mb.

2 out of 5 eggsNot SATA 6.0

Pros: Nice design, manufacturing.

Cons: Both the owners manual that comes with the product and the manufacturers specification sheet state clearly that this enclosure only supports SATA I / II drives. I don't know where they get SATA 6 from in the description but it is not correct.

Other Thoughts: I measured this enclosure with 4 x OCZ SATA III SSD's in a RAID 0 array on a dedicated LSI RAID controller and never saw read or write speeds above 2.5 Gb.s Buyer beware.
