4 out of 5 eggsWold Pay More For Higher Quality

Pros: A great idea, the perfect use for unused drive bays. Does not say "CASE BOX" on the front like others do.

Cons: Build quality is on the low rent side, not bad, just not as nice as it cold be. Roller bearings for the drawer and a magnetic latch would be big improvements.

Other Thoughts: Glossy finish on the faceplate is good or bad depending on your taste.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product 6 Egg's

Pros: It does exactly as intended with no flashy lights, bells, or whistles. It was very easy to install and looks to be made with high quality injection molding for the box's components.

Cons: Choice of front plate's finish (i.e. matte, silver...) could be addressed not sure if it's really a con.

Other Thoughts: First off here the screws are indeed over-sized because they are self tapping and designed that way to grab onto the plastic as they thread the expanded hole into the plastic. I am not sure how anyone had any issues with this TBH. Secondly on various reviews abroad and here I had read that people are stripping out the head of the screws. I personally have seen products with poor hardware and these screws are not the case. The cure for this from what I have seen in my profession is to use the proper screwdriver bit... (i.e. a PH2 or PH3...) these are different sizes just to spot on a few for anyone having issues getting the screw to turn without the driver slipping, which then rounds the corners.

Again I must say this box is not exactly a necessity for everyone and will be an as needed/wanted case. Whatever the case if you are on the fence about it, do not let the screw nonsense or "poor quality" of the box shy you away. It most definitely is not poorly made.

5 out of 5 eggsActually Works Great

Pros: Light touch opens bay. Easy to close. Very quiet.

Cons: A little "rattly" - but only when opening and closing, no added sound/vibration in case

Other Thoughts: This does as advertised, gives you a nice little 'pocket' to put things in. I am holding 12-14 thumbs drives inside of it.

I recommend laying a little thin rubber mat (cut to size) in the bottom for added quiet opening and closing so things don't rattle around - otherwise this simple item just plain old works as described

5 out of 5 eggsVery cool box

Pros: I bought this to put into my old Dell XPS 400 as I've been doing some upgrades to make it run better. I didn't need both DVD slots since I bought one good burner and won't even use that very much so I bought this box to fill the hole.

It works great but since the bezel hole is too small the box doesn't actually pop out when the bezel is installed. Then I realized this is a GREAT stash box. One has to open the PC cover to even know it is a storage box and it can't be opened from the outside.

This is the coolest little secret compartment box I ever had!

Cons: It's a bit expensive for a plastic box but I'm getting old so I'm allowed some eccentricities.

2 out of 5 eggsCheezie and inconvenient

Pros: It will hold a couple of thumb drives.

Cons: Disappointed both with the quality and the functionality. Door does not pop out far enough to allow it to be grasped easily even with your fingertips; Awkward to open. Looks cheap in my new Fractal case

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great... but the screws...

Pros: Perfect way to get extra use out of the spare bay in my PC case. When closed the sides of the drawer are close to the solid top of the shell so if you transport your case with goodies inside it isn't likely that they'll slip out or jam up the drawer.

Cons: Designed to have coarse screws tap directly into plastic. If you've got a case like mine (old AOpen A600 that I will take with me to my grave) that uses custom screws for toolless insertion/removal of drives you'll need to be careful getting them threaded. As other reviewers noted I would expect even the supplied screws to be difficult to get threaded for the first time. The only reason for 4 eggs instead of 5 was the screw issue.

Other Thoughts: This went into my case without much issue. When I realized I was going to need to use different screws than the ones provided I approached handling this carefully. I had to use the fine thread screws like you would use on an optical drive to get this mounted in my case due to the "shoulder bolts" that my case is designed to accept. The first screw was difficult to start but did go in eventually. For the later screws I first used the center point of a spade drill bit (probably about a 25° angle point) to slightly taper the insertion side of the holes BY HAND. I only wanted to remove just enough material to help the screw threads get their initial bite, using a power drill likely would have been difficult to control. This helped the last 3 screws go in a lot easier. For those using the supplied screws this would probably help as well, just be careful with how much plastic you remove as if you remove too much you can't go back. If Evercool wanted to take this to the next level I'd recommend either molding in threaded metal inserts for the screws (in standard 5-1/4" optical drive screw size/thread) or switching to at least either having the bottom portion of the tray be metal or run a tap through the current plastic holes during manufacturing. If I had a tap in the size that I needed that is what I would have used instead of brute-forcing the screws to thread.

I may see about finding a short and lightweight spring (1" diameter probably) to glue to the back of either the drawer or shell. This would help to give the drawer a little more push on open. The current push from the spring loaded retaining clip is pretty good but a little more would be nice.

The gloss black matches my case perfectly but yeah it won't be for everyone. No less of a fingerprint magnet than the rest of my case. :)

Now I'm going to check to see if they've got a 3-1/2" version!

3 out of 5 eggsI got the screws to fit eventually...

Pros: Well, it's a box and it hold things. The tray at the top is nice.

Cons: As other reviewers have stated, the screws/screw holes leave much to be desired. Either the screws are too big or the holes too small. It was a huge pain trying to screw them in, but in they did eventually go (albeit with some screw stripping and cussing along the way). Took 20 minutes to do what should have been a 2 minute job. The unit is also flimsy but that problem goes away once it is in place. I also wish there was a knob or handle on the front. Might be making a run to the hardware store to grab one to glue to the front.

Other Thoughts: Make sure that this unit is completely level in the computer case. If it is even off by a hair (more than the wiggle room of the screws), it may not close properly.

4 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Cheap
Works
You can not tell that it is installed in most cases

Cons: The screws received were not correct, otherwise it would have been a 5 egg item. 1 egg loss because of screws and 1 egg almost because it's made very cheaply but still ~$18. I mean I really do like it but it seems to be made so cheaply the price seems a little high. But then again most anyone has wasted at least ~$18 on a dinner they didn't really like at some point.

Other Thoughts: No doubt I would buy it again, it is a very nice item even at full price, but it is made cheaply. I think it would be nice if they offered a slightly higher quality version of this. The same look etc but metal would be nice.

2 out of 5 eggsIncluded screws doesn't fit ...

Pros: Push to open

Cons: Included screws doesn't fit... nor does any for that matter

Other Thoughts: It's just hanging loose inside the case because no screws are small enough to thread the hole unless you want to take the time to do that. Horrible design to make the holes too small and to include screws that are too big.

3 out of 5 eggsEhh. it's Okay

Pros: It's a nifty storage place my my USB sticks

Cons: Front panel is a dust magnet and a fingerprint one as well. It should have been a matte finish. Does not sitt 100% well in my FT02 case. The box is deper than an Optical drive and I can't seat it fully because it hits my MoBo.

Other Thoughts: Nothing high tech. it's just a storage box. It's not very well made either.
