2 out of 5 eggsGreat build quality except for the Fan Controller

This review is from: iStarUSA BPU-340SATA-BLACK 3x5.25" to 4x3.5" SAS/SATA 6.0Gb/s Hot-Swap Cage - Black Tray

Pros: Great build quality
Trays are nice and solid
Nice buttons to spin down the drives
Sata 6.0

Cons: TERRIBLE noise from the fan controller. The whining sound from the fan controller makes you want to smash the thing to bits.
No disable feature for the fan
The button to disable the alarm does not work

2 out of 5 eggsShipped Broken

This review is from: iStarUSA BPU-340SATA-BLACK 3x5.25" to 4x3.5" SAS/SATA 6.0Gb/s Hot-Swap Cage - Black Tray

Pros: Nice unit if it was not defective.

Cons: Each bay has push buttons to toggle on/off. One of the buttons shipped busted and will not toggle. Not something noticeable until after it was hooked up. Sure this is a low bar manufacturer so shame on me, but it is still irritating to go thru the motions of getting it refunded, from taking my pc apart to shipping it back etc.

Other Thoughts: Hook up the sata cables to the unit before sliding into the case for a less tedious installation.

4 out of 5 eggsBetter than others will let you believe

This review is from: iStarUSA BPU-340SATA-BLACK 3x5.25" to 4x3.5" SAS/SATA 6.0Gb/s Hot-Swap Cage - Black Tray

Pros: This backplane\cage works very well. I use this in my home server, and am going to buy more for Christmas.

It holds 4 3.5inch drives in 3 5.25inch bays. Offers great cooling for the drives in a home server environment. Even in a standard server environment.

Individual power switch for each Hard Drive in case you don't have a slot populated.

I have owned this device for nearly 8 months, and it has not once stopped working. It has survived several drives

Cons: Plug placement could be much better. But not worth an egg off. The only reason I deducted an egg was because of the lack of detailed instructions. It does not specify whether or not you could use both molex, or sata power. But reading a bit on the internet found the information needed.

Other Thoughts: Fan noise is not really an issue when you take into account what this device is intended for: For home server, or server environments. That being said, the fan noise is because this fan works WELL at cooling 4 drives in such a cramped space. To get that kind of cooling, you need a fan that can move enough air. So ignore what the other people say and don't sacrifice cooling for quiet. There is a low fan setting that DOES still do a decent job at cooling.
