Designs need serious work.
This review is from: iStarUSA BPN-DE350SS-SILVER 3x5.25" to 5x3.5" SAS/SATA 6.0 Gb/s Trayless Hot-Swap Cage
Pros: The frame is well built and fan provides descent flow with all drives installed.
Cons: Doors flimsy, drives do not seat well into the power / SATA socket consistently and fail to power on. Keys are a joke - a slight pull and the doors flex and the caddy door opens while in locked position. If you have Samsung or other thinner form factor 3.5" drives, there is no adjustment and the drives have to be carefully inserted. ONLY USE STANDARD HEIGHT DRIVES!!! SATA connectors are recessed above the fan shroud, so if you have angled SATA connectors, you will have a problem. SATA power rails are back to back, edge to edge, most power supply connectors have wires at right angles to the power head making plugginG in 2 power connectors almost impossible.
Other Thoughts: Add a thermal indicator and fan failure alarm. Include 4 drive blanks to "fill in the empty slots so air flow cools remaining drive properly.. Add 2 power rail adapter pigtails male to straight female or install power connectors as "pigtails" instead.. Use T7075 or stronger aluminum doors so they don't bend. Good Luck iStar USA !
