4 out of 5 eggsWorks well

Pros: Works as advertised and much cheaper than other towers or external enclosures. Very simple design. Basically it is just a port extender to the outside of the computer.
I've only used it with SAS drives so far.

Cons: The clip on the end of the tray to hold the drive in place is difficult to put on and take off. Since it is just plastic and you have to fight with it I am sure it will eventually break but it is not critical for it to work. A simple rework of this clip would get 5 eggs.

Other Thoughts: You need to connect it to the computers power supply (molex connector provided) so this is not suitable for use with laptops unless you provide another power source.

3 out of 5 eggsNice for what it is

Pros: Easy to add a SATA drive and have and esata external drive. Works well once connected.

Cons: The contents are geared for someone adding an external SATA drive to and desktop computer. For those of use who wish to have an ESATA external drive for a laptop with an ESATA port, you will need to buy a 12volt power supply and a ESATA to ESATA cable. I had the powersuply and the cable was cheap, so not a big deal for me. Also stackable in this case only refers to physical organization, not electronic connection.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertised

Pros: Easy installation, provides both eSATA and SATA connection as "SAS Lane 1" and "SAS Lane 2" if your adapater supports SAS dual lane. Power via a standard MOLEX connector (provided), and the package has both full and half-height brackets with rubber grommets for routing wires into the case. Also comes with standoffs to built a "rack" of SD01's as high as you wish.

Cons: Documentation is a little limited, but there is not much to say.

Other Thoughts: The plastic clip on the end that holds the drive in place is a little weird, you just wiggle it off and push it back on. Seems to work fine, no tools required. Remember this is just a drive bay, you still need an adaptor. Most motherboard/PCs come with eSATA already available, SAS is very rare on run of the mill PCs (both the drives and the drivers), and generally requires a SAS adaptor card. Not to mention they tend to be very expensive. SAS and SATA drives use the same connector, and often use the same cables, but they require vastly different hardware to support them, so be sure what you have and what you need.

1 out of 5 eggswill not power a SAS drive

Pros: I'm sure it's great for SATA drives, but it will not power up a SAS drive even though it is advertised as working for either.

Cons: This devise will not power a SAS hard drive. I tried to different SAS hard drives which I know work because I pulled them right out of running server. The drives will not spin up. A SATA drives powers up fine but not a SAS drive.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you very much for purchasing a SilverStone. The SD01 works similarly to an extension adapter in that it will not be able to convert SAS drive for use on its own. To use SD01 with SAS drives, you must also connect it directly to a SAS port with SAS controller. If you have more questions regarding the use of this product, please feel free to contact us directly at:
