4 out of 5 eggsSolid and good build

Pros: - Well built, all aluminum frame (some plastic parts, like the eject mechanism but they are beefy and unlikely to brake)
- Works with 4TB WD Red (even if marketed only "up to 3TB").
- Made over 12TB of back up without any issue over 2 days. With multiple HDD swap and never had an issue.
- Activity LED is working (purple when access, blue when idle or without HDD).

Cons: Two small problems (no deal breaker):
- Handle to unlock & open the tray is made of plastic. So to open the tray you have to be a bit carefull. But after its open a bit you can use the rest of the door ( solid aluminum) to open it and eject the HDD.
- Activity LED only flash if under heavy load (like a backup), won't flash if you are simply playing a video or other small file access.

Other Thoughts: Would have been nice if it had a bottom plate so it could be used with 2.5'' HDD (with an adapter).

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Superior quality than my older hotswap. Tray-less made me realize how annoying my other tray hotswap bay is and will replace it in my other computer.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Getting a second one to replace in my other computer that was an older hotswap with a tray and pins that hold the hard drive (annoying)

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: The door works for pushing the drive out and back in. Looks nice. I'm not sure if the bay has anything to do with it, but it does support my motherboards hot swap.
The LED activity light is blue, not red like most HDD lights.
Solid construction.

Cons: No cons. Good price.

Other Thoughts: The metal donut serves no purpose and I think it would look better without.

5 out of 5 eggsLooks good

Pros: It works as expected

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace a Vantec EZ-Swap2 trayless device that failed after 4 months. That device has an arm that pushes the drive in and pulls the drive out. The arm pivots by means of a small plastic connector. The connector in my unit broke and I had to take the device apart to retrieve my drive, voiding the Vantec warranty.

This SNT unit works differently. It depends on a plastic element in a different way, but that element is much larger and I expect that it won't break.

5 out of 5 eggsGood stuff

Pros: Competitive price, good design, nice looking front panel.

Cons: Don't think this will work with 2.5 drives without major effort -- the tray is 3.5 drive specific. But we already knew that, didn't we?

Other Thoughts: Great stuff. I recently put that in 2 small biz servers - fits like a glove. Easy to install and good looking too!

5 out of 5 eggsHow 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.

I have a computer shop and I get a lot of customers wanting disc wipes/restores. This does exactly what I need it to do, quickly swap out a drive for file backups/virus scans. It also has a sturdy enough lock I guess, but I wouldn't store state secrets behind it. I don't use the lock at all.

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.
