4 out of 5 eggsRemovable Hard drive carrier

Pros: Solid case with good heat transfer and reliable connections.

Cons: Other units of this brand I have bought suffer after awhile from a loud fan. Clean it and it resumes operation.

Other Thoughts: Love'em. I have multiple O/S using the same hardware.

5 out of 5 eggsCARTRIDGE ONLY

Pros: Well Built.

Cons: Pay attention, NewEgg does not make it very obvious that this is only the cartridge, and that you need the full kit if you are starting out (which comes with a cartridge).

5 out of 5 eggsChangeing Drives

Pros: If you need to change SATA drives often this rack is indespensible. Turn the computer off unlock.. 2 screws.. change drive slide other drive in lock turn the machine on... Simple, fast and no cables between the drive and the caddy to go bad. Comes with extra long SATA cable built on.

Cons: You cant change the SATA cable if the end gets messed.

3 out of 5 eggsGood but watch the connectors

Pros: I have this HDD rack as well as competing I5t@r and K1ngw1n products.

This Vantec unit is well built and has the best lid lock of the three types with counter sunk screws to hold the lid in place.

Fits into a standard 5 1/2 inch bay and does not over hang.

Good price and you can buy the cartridge separately.

Cons: This unit uses the HDD SATA and power connectors to make the sliding connection when you insert the cartridge. If you are doing repeated removals then the connectors may not hack the pace and fail leaving you with a broken HDD. Racks that use connectors on the cartridge with an internal interface between the cartridge and the HDD avoid this risk (but are longer and may foul your mobo in a lower bay). This is not a problem if you can leave the cartridge in the PC and turned off (via the key) most of the time if you don’t need it and only power it up when you want to use the HDD.

More expensive than competing products. Does not have a rubber anti-vibration mounting so HDD is hard mounted in the cartridge. Some competing products have a rubber mount (look for my other reviews).

Other Thoughts: This item (MRK-300ST-BK*C) is the Cartridge only. You need the MRK-300ST-BK rack if you want to use this.

Would have given it 4 eggs if the price was lower.

4 out of 5 eggsmisleading title

Pros: Solid construction

Cons: Removable Hard Drive Rack, says the same thing on the full unit.

Other Thoughts: The title doesn't mention that it's the cartridge only. I've bought entire units, plastic units, for this price and I guess I'm just stupid.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: Solid construction, looks nice.

Cons: Don't like the way the lock works when you try to pull the tray out without unlocking it first. It pushes the plastic out to the side.

Other Thoughts: Best built removable tray I've seen and I've tried a few others. Worlds above the Kingwin garbage I tried last time.
