5 out of 5 eggsHot Swap

Pros: Installs just like a 5.25 optical drive. HD slides in and out without any issues. The status lights on the front help out a lot when figuring out which drive is which. Each has it's own fan, so that helps out with temperature.

Cons: Uses a molex 4 pin instead of the 7 pin SATA. Not a huge problem as the PSU has way too many connectors anyway

Other Thoughts: I have 5 of these running 2TB drives RAID 5 in a freenas server. It's software RAID so not a true hotswap system (unmount the drive and then you can remove it, insert replacement and select rebuild). Drives run at 77F (25C) in a 67F (19.5C) controlled environment.

4 out of 5 eggsgood but a few nitpicks

Pros: does exactly what it says it does and does that well.

Cons: the parts are not very high quality. You have to be really careful or you'll break the front opening off. Also, it's very very deep so make sure you have space in your case for this thing.

5 out of 5 eggsOught to be PC-Case Requirement

Pros: Easy setup, sturdy frame. Flawless execution.

Cons: The cartridge pull-out handle feels delicate

Other Thoughts: This dang device is so simple and works so well that I wish I had the option to buy it long ago!

Case makers ought to include a pair of these in their retail offerings.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product!

Pros: Mobil rack works great! Sata II speed. Tray slides in smoothly and securely. The Sata drive connects to the tray while the make/break connection is part of the Icy Dock, saving possible wear on drive connection. The power and drive activity lights work as expected with simply the Sata cable connection. The locking key is three position - unlocked for removal, locked w/power off, and locked w/power on. In the locked power off position you can leave the drive in place yet still have it safely disconnected from your system - even the tray's fan stay powered off! I like the tooless tray cover too. The dock's fan is accessible for easy replacement.

Cons: The units depth can be a possible con. The trade-off for not using the Sata drive's connector for make/break is extra depth to accomodate the dock's connectors(overall 9.25, ~7.25 from face of standard case to rear of rack). Another possible con is the 12V plug is legacy style only.

Other Thoughts: Very satisfied. (I will note though that one of the five I bought had a defective tray. The HD would be recognized in BIOS but both XP and VISTA had strange behavior and lockups accessing the drive. Swapped drive to another tray and all was well.)

3 out of 5 eggsTHEY HAVE CHANGED THEM

Pros: Warning! ICY dock has apparently just changed the MB123SK..and they are NOT compatible with their older units. I purchased two of these in May and just got 3 today. THey have completely different methods of attaching the hard drive cartidge to the cradle.

Cons: see above - certainly messes up my plans
