5 out of 5 eggsSpace and time saver

Pros: Easy instillation.
Perfect fit in 3.5inch bay.
Secure locking mechanism.
comes with extra cables.
Light that identifies if there is a HDD present.
Easy access to HDD.
Automatically pops in and out without ease.
Compact(doesn't extend far into case).

Cons: Handle on door is a bit flimsy(not to bad).
Not the greatest key(still does the job fine).

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this over 3.5 to 2.5 adapters as this lets you put two HDDs in a 3.5inch bay and it also shows when HDD is present so you don't remove a HDD in use by accident when mistaking it for being empty.

5 out of 5 eggsCheap & Works

Pros: 2 Drives, mounting hardware & Sata->Molex connectors. Key? It's a triangle shape used to unlock, so finding a knife wouldn't be hard but whatever.

Cons: Umm, doesn't fit 3? I would have preferred a 5.25" bay for my laptop hard drives, but this did the trick.

Other Thoughts: Doesn' fit nicely in my Antec DF-85. The case attunes for a hard drive to mount differently, so if you were to mount the bay in the position a hard drive would natively mount in, it would be backwards. If you mount it the way you need to easily access the drive it sticks too far forward and the Front fans hit the bays. This was easily remedied by sliding the bay back and using the rear mounting holes to mount the front of the bay to. Because the DF-85 is humongous, there's still plenty of room for cabling however.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Compact.

Hot Swap.

Cons: Requires 2 power connectors.

Other Thoughts: I use this for cloning and imaging laptop hard drives. Especially useful for that. For power, it uses a Y adapter that converts molex into a SATA and a small conector for the LED. There are two of them, one for each bay. This could have been done with just one SATA power to reduce the bird's nest of wiring that will end up near the bay.

1 out of 5 eggsquality control issues

Pros: $1100 worth of hardware slides in just fine.

Cons: One of the "caddy" backplanes was dead.

Other Thoughts: Having to unscrew and otherwise take apart a piece of cheap plastic and metal to retrieve $1100 worth of hardware because the item is a piece of junk? Not so much fun.

3 out of 5 eggsWon't work with OCZ SSD

Pros: Reasonably well built, includes two HDD circuit protection stickers.

Cons: I bought this to use with a new OCZ Vertex 2 SSD, but the fit is *way* too tight. I'm going to try another rack for this. Also, for regular HDDs, you would need to put an adhesive sticker on the bottom of the HDD to prevent the circuitry from shorting against the metal tray.

Other Thoughts: Metal trays aren't always better than plastic.

5 out of 5 eggsBest of the Best

Pros: Very Solid - no cheap plastic to break after one use. This is Enterprise craftsmanship at an consumer Price. I took chance on this one after a few others that I found were junk. If you need a 2.5" hot swap bay this is the one you want.

Cons: Wasn't free.

Other Thoughts: This is perfect for your SSD. I am using it for SSD and 2.5 HDD. SSD for windows and HDD for Linux.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for SSD drives

Pros: Very well built, no additional caddy needed to swap drives. Looks goos too!

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I keep different OS's on different 2.5 inch drives and this makes swapping super easy.
