1 out of 5 eggsClumsy locking system

This review is from: ICY DOCK ToughArmor MB996SP-6SB Full Metal 6 x 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s SSD/HDD Hot Swap Mobile Rack Backplane Cage Module 5.25" Device Bay (Fits 7, 9.5mm height drive)il

Pros: Great to have 6 SSD in one optical drive bay.
Only 2 molex to power the 6 drives
Front SSD leds for activity

Cons: Drive caddie locking system clumsy.
Lost 3 loading trays. 2 broken and 1 stuck in locked position. Cannot be pulled out.
Ended up with only 3 drive caddies working out of 6 for $120! Expensive.
Expensive
Need one SATA cable per drive. No backplane.

Other Thoughts: It would be absolutely great if the locking system for the caddies was more robust and smooth.
It could be a bit cheaper!

2 out of 5 eggsManufacturing errors

This review is from: ICY DOCK ToughArmor MB996SP-6SB Full Metal 6 x 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s SSD/HDD Hot Swap Mobile Rack Backplane Cage Module 5.25" Device Bay (Fits 7, 9.5mm height drive)il

Pros: Looks Sharp attractive design, nice activity lights visible on front of each rack, Built in fan with two speeds or off position.

Cons: My Docking station was made improperly. The left side docks slid in and out easily but the right side especially the bottom right two I had to fight to get them in an out. The divider was slanted to the right at bottom causing the right cages to be way to tight. I ended up taking the three right side removable modules and grinding the sides down so they would slide in and out easier. This helped some but I ended up just re-drilling the bottom middle two holes so the divider would be straight up and down and separate both sides properly. After I did all this the modules slid in and out perfect. I did not feel like waiting on an RMA so this is why I fixed it myself plus I worried a replacement may have the same problem. I knock off 3 eggs for having to perform this procedure.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you use the included screws to mount your HDD or SSD's. You cannot use a screw that sticks up even the slightest for mounting the SSD to the Module or it wont line up properly with the back connectors. I have 6 Samsung 840 250 GB ssd's in mine attached to a LSI 9265i Raid card.... Works great!. I leave my fan off with the SSD's if You use HDD's I would leave fan on. The fan sucks air through the drives and into the Case

5 out of 5 eggsBrilliant. Love it. Awesome!

This review is from: ICY DOCK ToughArmor MB996SP-6SB Full Metal 6 x 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s SSD/HDD Hot Swap Mobile Rack Backplane Cage Module 5.25" Device Bay (Fits 7, 9.5mm height drive)il

Pros: Got this to replace DVD drive in my WHS2011. Needed a eSata card to makes all these drives work - its so freaking cool to add six drives to my very small HP N36L. It now has ten internal hard drives - wow! Could not be happier.

Cons: none

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Quality

This review is from: ICY DOCK ToughArmor MB996SP-6SB Full Metal 6 x 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s SSD/HDD Hot Swap Mobile Rack Backplane Cage Module 5.25" Device Bay (Fits 7, 9.5mm height drive)il

Pros: - Full metal construction
- BOTH activity and power LED
- Has 6 bays
- Has FAN options
- Professional Look

Cons: - Requires screws (not tooless)
- A bit pricey

Other Thoughts: Great Product with an excellent design but comes at a cost. I current have two SSDs installed, however only one of them properly shows activity LED, the other one stays lit at all times regardless of activity.

1 out of 5 eggsGot lemon?

This review is from: ICY DOCK ToughArmor MB996SP-6SB Full Metal 6 x 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s SSD/HDD Hot Swap Mobile Rack Backplane Cage Module 5.25" Device Bay (Fits 7, 9.5mm height drive)il

Pros: 1) Brilliant idea
2) Good look
3) Allows nicely organize the PC case

Cons: 1) Reliability. Intermittently loosing communication with drive located randomly in either bay 1,3 or 5. BIOS doesn't even see any drives in bay 4 & 6. LED's work okay.
2) Hardware. Mounting hardware is too long. If you were to install enclose in the case as usual, you will see, that forward screws won't allow to hot swap drives in bays 3 & 4. The way around is - not to install forward screws at all.

Other Thoughts: Kinda sad. I needed something like that, and yet, I guess I got a lemon that fails on me. Wouldn't be a big deal if that would be an issue with single drive, since I could simply change the intermittent bay with good working & move drive there; however, if you running RAID 0 - it is totally different story, & stuff like that get's ya really mad

5 out of 5 eggsNice

This review is from: ICY DOCK ToughArmor MB996SP-6SB Full Metal 6 x 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s SSD/HDD Hot Swap Mobile Rack Backplane Cage Module 5.25" Device Bay (Fits 7, 9.5mm height drive)il

Pros: - 6x 2.5" hotswap bays in a 5.25" cage; what's not to like?
- Fan included is small & quiet, yet I can feel it pulling air from the front of the front of the module

Cons: - Lights don't actually show disk activity, just power - not that I need it

Other Thoughts: I do a lot of work with new & used 2.5" drives, so it's nice to be able to swap them out as needed without cracking open the case and fiddling with SATA cables.

5 out of 5 eggsWish I knew about ICY earlier

This review is from: ICY DOCK ToughArmor MB996SP-6SB Full Metal 6 x 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s SSD/HDD Hot Swap Mobile Rack Backplane Cage Module 5.25" Device Bay (Fits 7, 9.5mm height drive)il

Pros: Fits 6 SSDs about as compactly as I can think of. Has built in fan. Trays work well for me.

Cons: The lights seem inconsistent (or maybe I already have failing drives). The trays and screws are tedious to add/remove drives from (not the dock itself, the trays).

Other Thoughts: This will be my first of many ICY DOCKs. Solid quality and good design. This really cleans up a multi drive build. Its nice knowing I don't need to pull the case apart to add/remove/replace a drive too. In my opinion, its worth the money.

5 out of 5 eggsICY DOCK

This review is from: ICY DOCK ToughArmor MB996SP-6SB Full Metal 6 x 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s SSD/HDD Hot Swap Mobile Rack Backplane Cage Module 5.25" Device Bay (Fits 7, 9.5mm height drive)il

Pros: Small enough to use in small server case.
Actually will see SATA III SSD drives

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: Building a small image server for work. Newer Intel chipsets handle RAID I or 0 well with four Drives or less. Am using 2 Intel 530 SSDs for system drive and some programs. RAID I
Using 2 INtel 3100 SSDs for data. Also Raid I
The bay that came with the server cabinet did not see the drives, but this ICY DOCK not only sees drives, connects at SATA III speeds, but is about 1 and 1/2 inches shorted so that I have more room in the server for cables.
With low voltage Xenon chip and quiet fans, the system is very quiet for a high powered server.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: ICY DOCK ToughArmor MB996SP-6SB Full Metal 6 x 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s SSD/HDD Hot Swap Mobile Rack Backplane Cage Module 5.25" Device Bay (Fits 7, 9.5mm height drive)il

Pros: So far so good. All metal construction helps with cooling and the fan is quiet enough or can be turned off if your drives are okay with it. I just set this up with 6 WD 7200RPM drives with no real complaints so far. Will update this review if anything goes wrong.

LED's don't light up the entire room. I wish all manufacturers would take note of what a properly lit component is like.

Cons: SATA cables were a little difficult to click in place for some reason. Not sure if it was the cage or the cables but a little wiggling and retrying finally got the cables in place. No harm, no foul.

Other Thoughts: There's been talk of the screws but it's not ICY DOCK's fault they have to be so short. After putting in two 2.5" drives side-by-side you're left with 0.75" for the cage and a central divider. You still need enough thickness in the cage to get a couple of threads in for the screws. Plus they have to be in a certain position for most cases / brackets.

There's also a lot of cables in a small space as you can imagine. Too bad there's no standard 6-port multilane connector they could use instead.
