4 out of 5 eggsWorks great for what it is

This review is from: iStarUSA BPN-DE110SS-SILVER 1x5.25" to 1x3.5" SATA/SAS 6.0 Gb/s Trayless Hot-Swap Cage

Pros: Aluminum construction feels good.
Good Solid bay door
Easy to use

Cons: Wouldn't recognize my drive after ejecting the first one and then inserting another drive right after. Had to restart my computer in order to recognize the drive. I've even made sure that the SATA port its plugged into had hot swap enabled.
Light stay on constantly. Thought it would be an active LED but at least it has an on/off switch.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this to those that want more room for HDD but just be aware that your unit may not work for hot swapping.
Fairly nice build quality though for the price.
iStarUSA usually has great quality products but may these single drive bays just happened to be a bad batch.
Either way they do look really nice with the different color options.

5 out of 5 eggsI can't believe all the bad reviews!

This review is from: iStarUSA BPN-DE110SS-SILVER 1x5.25" to 1x3.5" SATA/SAS 6.0 Gb/s Trayless Hot-Swap Cage

Pros: I've been using this daily for years without a problem.

Cons: No ON/Off switch.

Other Thoughts: I only have the one of this model because I found an Orico model with an On/Off switch, of which I own six or seven. I'm really surprised about the complaints with this one, because I have been popping the drive(s) in and out, average 3 times a week, for years. I also have 5 iStarUSA BPN-2535DE-SA 3.5" to 2 x 2.5" SATA 6 Gbps HDD SSD Hot-swap Rack (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816215366) that are very well made, and no problems either. I also have a ten-year-old iStar monitor switcher that is very well made, with no problems. Maybe I just got lucky, but I've never had reason to complain about iStarUSA products, except for the fact that they are way over-priced, so I only buy them when on sale. There are competitive products of about equal quality, but more reasonably priced.

5 out of 5 eggsLove the 5 that I have, couldn't pass up a 6th for the current price after rebate

This review is from: iStarUSA BPN-DE110SS-SILVER 1x5.25" to 1x3.5" SATA/SAS 6.0 Gb/s Trayless Hot-Swap Cage

Pros: Using these in our PCs makes it easy to do backups at full SATA speeds without the need to open the boxes or use eSATA connections. Given the sale prices Newegg frequently offers I actually use another in each PC to hold the system drive as well, just because removing or swapping the system drive easily is convenient once in a while. Have never had any problems with the 5 that I already own nor with the two black ones that I bought before them, and significantly prefer them to alternatives that require mounting drives in caddies that I've used in the past. Nice rugged cage, though connectors may be fragile (see below). Attractive. Less expensive when on sale or after rebate than any other cages I've ever seen.

Cons: None for me, but possible ones include no fan (the aluminum cage conducts heat away well, our boxes have good air flow, and the cage has a mounting point and power connection for a 40 mm fan if you want to add one), potentially fragile connectors (comments for the black version say that when you attach the internal cables it may be wise to have a disk locked in the cage to give the connectors added support, though I tend to handle connectors gently and have not encountered any problem myself), and I have one drive (an old WD Black) whose connectors aren't quite ideally aligned when it's inserted and that thus requires some care in inserting.

5 out of 5 eggsHave several. Meet my expectations.

This review is from: iStarUSA BPN-DE110SS-SILVER 1x5.25" to 1x3.5" SATA/SAS 6.0 Gb/s Trayless Hot-Swap Cage

Pros: To those with hot swapping failures - see first if your mobo itself will allow it. Chances are it wont or may require a bios setup change. Test your motherboard for hot swapping without the iStar yourself, it's easy enough. A PCI express sata card will usually be ok but not always. All there is inside this unit is a sata connector, nothing electronic to conk out, be incompatible, or of shoddy design. I use mine to test multi OSes and to clone boot drives for backup purposes. Works for me.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Can usually find 'em on sale with a rebate

This review is from: iStarUSA BPN-DE110SS-SILVER 1x5.25" to 1x3.5" SATA/SAS 6.0 Gb/s Trayless Hot-Swap Cage

Pros: Fit in case.

Cons: Worked exactly once. Called support but gave up after trying everything (different drives, ports, etc.). Light may come on but never able to see drive. Win 8.1.

This review is from: iStarUSA BPN-DE110SS-SILVER 1x5.25" to 1x3.5" SATA/SAS 6.0 Gb/s Trayless Hot-Swap Cage

Pros: Looks nice.

Cons: Never worked. Neither Windows 8.1, nor now Windows 10 even recognizes the slot.

Other Thoughts: When I place a drive in it the little blue light goes on but no drive appears in Windows Explorer.

5 out of 5 eggsHot swap works on Extreme 4

This review is from: iStarUSA BPN-DE110SS-SILVER 1x5.25" to 1x3.5" SATA/SAS 6.0 Gb/s Trayless Hot-Swap Cage

Pros: Easy to install. Have one connected to extreme 4 mobo and hot swapping works great. Love it. It makes backup of tv recordings supper fast and convenient with my JBODs.

Cons: None. When I hot swap the next drive is recognized after a few minute, just have to have patience.

Other Thoughts: I was waiting for another deal and NE came though. Just ordered another, a black one to go with the silver one I bought from NE last November. NE rocks.

1 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: iStarUSA BPN-DE110SS-SILVER 1x5.25" to 1x3.5" SATA/SAS 6.0 Gb/s Trayless Hot-Swap Cage

Pros: Better than nothing--barely.
It does work, but the Cons far outnumber anything positive about this unit.

They include a locking SATA cable.
It does look nice.

Cons: The best way to describe this product is, it is cheaply made.
Everything about it screams cheap.

The key is useless, it serves no real functionality other than barely keep the door locked, however, the door is so cheaply made that you can easily break it open if you are not careful.

The unit is always ON, the key does NOT turn unit on/off.
Thus, you have a LED that is always on, even if there is no HD in it. Sure, they allow you to turn it off (from a tiny switch in the back), but, that is silly. The LED should only come on when you have something in it.

It always feels like you are going to break the door when you use it.
There are NO vibration dampeners (rubber/silicon grommets) anyplace, thus you can have vibration issues.

Did I mention it was cheaply made ?

Other Thoughts: The difference in quality that an extra $5-10 can bring to the table is astounding. Spend the extra $$$ on a better quality unit.

My other unit has a key that turns the unit on/off, and has a much more solid door, they also have silicon on the sides to prevent vibrations, and it was only $10 more.

I am highly disappointed with this iStar unit, would not buy any of their products again.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer:

Thank you for your purchase and interest in our entry level drive cage for simple storage and elementary server build. However, it does seem like your storage needs exceed more than just a hard drive cage:
To summarize, you need:
- a functional keylock that powers on/off hard drives
- ruggedized handles
- anti vibration dampeners
- bang for your buck

Try these drive cages that will better fit your level of hardware expectations:
T-G525-SS
T-7-SA
T5F-SS

Thank you,
iStarUSA Group

5 out of 5 eggsLove them

This review is from: iStarUSA BPN-DE110SS-SILVER 1x5.25" to 1x3.5" SATA/SAS 6.0 Gb/s Trayless Hot-Swap Cage

Pros: This is the second one I have bought. I really like these. They work well, easy to remove/insert. No problems with them at all. I use them as part of RAID set so if I get a failing drive, I can just remove it quickly and install a new drive. For those who are into cosmetics, these look very nice from the outside. They easily slide into 5.25" drive space. Comes with keys (I never use), screws and SATA cable. I did not use enclosed SATA cable as I had already prepopulated my mother boards 6 SATA connectors with SATA cables and used them instead.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: So far, I recommend them highly!
