4 out of 5 eggsGood if you can get on sale

This review is from: iStarUSA BPN-DE110SS-BLUE Trayless 5.25" to 3.5" SATA SAS 6 Gbps HDD Hot-swap Rack

Pros: I purchased 4 of these when they were on sale for a great price. The cage really works well if you have a drive you need to swap regularly. I was really impressed with the materials used since most of the cage is metal.

Cons: Unfortunately, one of the latches on one of the cages broke off when I opened it for the first time. Looking at it the latching mechanism, my guess is that they will all break if they were put into heavy usage. A metal pin holds the latching mechanism to the door of the cage and there's only a small bit of plastic around it. As soon as there's too much stress on the latch, the plastic will break, the pin will come loose, and the latch will fall apart. The nice thing is that the latching mechanism if able to be removed from the door with two screws. The bad thing is that I haven't been able to figure out who to contact to purchase replacement parts. Hopefully iStarUSA will respond to one of my emails, otherwise I may just try to rig something up.

5 out of 5 eggsTool-less, attractive, works.

This review is from: iStarUSA BPN-DE110SS-BLUE Trayless 5.25" to 3.5" SATA SAS 6 Gbps HDD Hot-swap Rack

Pros: Works fine for me. A lot better than fiddling with screws to hot-mount a full sized drive.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The splash of color on the front hinge plate gives painted metallic flare to a dark case.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for NAS's

This review is from: iStarUSA BPN-DE110SS-BLUE Trayless 5.25" to 3.5" SATA SAS 6 Gbps HDD Hot-swap Rack

Pros: Makes swapping drives more easy. Has HDD power and activity light.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Seems built good enough. Have not installed a 40mm fan and HDD temps only go up to 36C after a 1 hour backup. Installed in a Fractal Design R4 Mini with 4 120mm case fans.

5 out of 5 eggsGood value

This review is from: iStarUSA BPN-DE110SS-BLUE Trayless 5.25" to 3.5" SATA SAS 6 Gbps HDD Hot-swap Rack

Pros: Metal frame construction. Unique release mechanism disconnects drive as the access door is open.

Cons: none as yet

Other Thoughts: Although it is "fan ready", would like to have been able to order with the fan option included. Not a big deal though, I have plenty of fans, one will fit.

2 out of 5 eggsProblems formatting and hot swapping

This review is from: iStarUSA BPN-DE110SS-BLUE Trayless 5.25" to 3.5" SATA SAS 6 Gbps HDD Hot-swap Rack

Pros: Looks nice, sturdy and very convenient method of hot swapping drives. Worked fine for making backups to spare drives.

Cons: Interface causes problems hot swapping and formatting. Frequently the parameters of the old ddrive seem to remain after it is removed and a new one inserted, requiring a reboot. But it really choked when I tried to format several drives with a full format (not quick). A 2TB drive took 13 hours and eventually failed. Connected directly to the same SATA cable it took 4 hours and completed normally. Several 1TB drives also took an inordinately long time to format and several also failed.

Other Thoughts: It's very convenient, but I ran into numerous problem formatting and wiping some drives for sale. Now I am back to using a Thermaltake USB 3.0 docking station.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer:

Thank you,

5 out of 5 eggsthis thing does what it is supposed to

This review is from: iStarUSA BPN-DE110SS-BLUE Trayless 5.25" to 3.5" SATA SAS 6 Gbps HDD Hot-swap Rack

Pros: I got a HP Proliant server. It has 4 SAS/SATA bays and HAD a dvd drive. since the model server I had only accommodated 2TB drives and had one (and I had one unused) I ordered another 2 and this 5.25 bay to fill the hole where the DVD was. It works great. If I were to choose to go Linux instead of the included whs 2011, i could just swap out the drives since this is a removable inclosure that does not require a cassette. Sweet

Cons: Somewhat flimsy door mechanism. I would not suggest it for repetitive use, but it is pretty inexpensive and you get what you pay for. It is perfect for what I needed.

Other Thoughts: None so far. It may be a bit flimsy, which is true, but I am not opening or closing it. It does a good job of filling the DVD hole and securing my boot drive in my server

3 out of 5 eggsRebate arrived 90 days...

This review is from: iStarUSA BPN-DE110SS-BLUE Trayless 5.25" to 3.5" SATA SAS 6 Gbps HDD Hot-swap Rack

Pros: Works well on older drives,

Cons: Fails on SATA3 and over 500gb - not in use, but in formatting or in checkdisk, also slows these drives

Other Thoughts: Adding to my earlier review, the rebate finally arrived, 90 days after submission.

3 out of 5 eggsForget about a rebate

This review is from: iStarUSA BPN-DE110SS-BLUE Trayless 5.25" to 3.5" SATA SAS 6 Gbps HDD Hot-swap Rack

Pros: Nice concept and appearance, fine for smaller drives. Flawless insertion/removal with no indication here of fragility. In general use, seems fine, and handy too.

Cons: Consistently causes write, format, and read errors on large and fast drives. I found that "error check" and formatting in these nearly always fails on drives over 500 gig. I almost threw out a drive when it repeatedly failed to finish a format, then connected it directly and it was flawless. Also seems to reduce speed on the fastest drives.

Other Thoughts: I got several on a good sale with a great rebate. WELL, a rebate that would have been great if it ever came. Over 2 months now, and no returns of email on inquiries, web check says "no such offer". Nice. Why do I believe in the rebate fairy? Time to grow up and realize it's usually a lie.
