This review is from: iStarUSA BPN-DE350SS-RED 3x5.25" to 5x3.5" SAS/SATA 6.0 Gb/s Trayless Hot-Swap Cage
Pros: *****Very well built aluminum casing W/strong latches to secure drives seating. The ability to Key access drive bays is important for unauthorized access and mistakes while my server is active.
***LED indicators inform you which drives are being accessed. Switch on back of module to turn LED indicators off if desired.
****2 Speed Fan control switch on the back of the cage module(Lo/High: HighSpeed and Exhaust Fan position is the default). Easy access to fan for swap-out or change from Exhaust to Intake(I prefer exhaust)
****Two 15 Pin SATA power ports instead of two 4 pin molex was a plus for me.
Cons: *If you have a computer case with medal tabs separating 5.25" optical drive bays, you will have to bend them down or pry them totally off in order for the module to fit. Unlike other cages, this one has no side grooves. Would have given five eggs rating if it didn't take me 3 hours to to pry off tabs and slide the module in my server case. I scratched the cage up a bit on the sides during install but no big deal. BUT, if I had to RMA this cage for any reasons down the line, I may be SOOL!
Other Thoughts: All-in-All a well constructed and slick looking drive cage with physical security!
