How did I get by for so long without one of these?
Pros: This thing is quite sturdy, well constructed (all the screw holes line up), and it's attractive enough for what it is. The light is blue when the drive is in and running, turns purple when accessing the drive on initialization, and is not overly bright. There is also a place to add a fan if you need, none included but I knew that from the description.
Cons: There is no included software. I didn't expect it to at this price. My motherboard (Asus z77 Sabertooth) supports hot swapping, but if your MB doesn't you will need some kind of software. Also it would have been nice if the slot would also accept laptop/ssd drives. They of course will fit if you an line them up correctly, but an added groove would have made it easier.
Other Thoughts: I,m very happy with my purchase. Even if you are not hot swapping drives this is a great purchase for ease of access to you HDD. I plan to fill the blank drive slots on my pc with them and forget about the hassle of opening my case when I need to change drive out.
