4 out of 5 eggsGreat product but......

Pros: Does what it says it does, converts 2x 5.25" slots to 3x 3.5" hard drive bays.

Cons: The reason I give this a 4 our of 5 because the FAN is SO LOUD!!!!! I am sure ICYDock uses cheap fans because this is the loudest thing in my case.

ICYDock you want 5 stars send me a quieter fan.

My case was a little bit smaller than than the unit, so I had to use some force.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: Easy to install and easy to add drives. Setup a Raid 5 with a Highpoint 2720SGL for my home server. Supports Sata 6 Gb drives.

Cons: None, I just need to buy one more and hopefully there will be a rebate on this model again soon.

Other Thoughts: I am using (5) WD Black 2TB drives in my server in Raid 5 for 8 TB of storage. This allowed me to use the additional 5.25 drive bays to add 3 additional drives. The drives run cooler in this enclosure than they do in the normal drive bay of my Coolermaster CM690 with a front fan in front of the drive bay.

5 out of 5 eggsNot bad

Pros: Can accommodate 3 hard drives, 6Gb/s capable, only takes up 2 5.25 " bays, fan can be replaced with a better one, came with molex to sata power adapters, mounting screws included, no hard drive trays to deal with, worked right out of the box with no problems. Mounted 3 2Tb WD Caviar black/7200Rpm/64Mb cache SATA III drives without problems.

Cons: Was a little tight fitting in case, no SATA cables included, bay doors feel a little flimsy, but have had no problems as of yet. Price a little steep.
