1 out of 5 eggsThis product is a LOSER

This review is from: StarTech.com Black Aluminum 5.25in Rugged SATA Hard Drive Mobile Rack Drawer (DRW150SATBK)

Pros: Pros: Almost everything about this design is quite good - the drawer goes in snuggly, makes a good connection, power & activity lamps on the front are nice. Everything is great right up until...

Cons: Cons: after removing and inserting the drive drawers a few times, the weak link is quickly exposed: it's the little key-lock/latch mechanism. As soon as the latch meets any resistance at all - which it often does even when the drive has been carefully and fully inserted - the (plastic, of course) locking mechanism breaks apart from the latching lever. Then the entire unit is toast (and you may or may not get a drive drawer stuck inside). This is NOT particular to one faulty unit - I bought six of these, and one by one they all failed in the same way. STAY AWAY!

Other Thoughts: If anyone discovers a well-made mobile SATA rack drawer/receiver combination, would love to know about it. Would glad have paid twice as much $ for trouble-free well-designed hardware. But these are cheap...and you get what you pay for.

5 out of 5 eggsSeveral served me well over several years

This review is from: StarTech.com Black Aluminum 5.25in Rugged SATA Hard Drive Mobile Rack Drawer (DRW150SATBK)

Pros: Pros? They work; they've been perfectly reliable; they're compatible with SATA-II and SATA-III; I've never had so much as a cooling fan fail. I've installed them in all five of the household computers, and this adds convenience when necessity calls for it.

Cons: Originally, I chaffed at the price, which at that time was closer to $55 for the bay and one caddy. But I had chosen the unit because it looked like the most solid unit you could find.

Other Thoughts: A reviewer says the fan is noisy. Well -- the fan is built in to the caddy. I must have nearly ten caddies, and never noticed it. And believe me -- I would've noticed!! But those of us who buy components more frequently are also more inclined to a little DIY effort, and those fans are replaceable for a few dollars with a variety of units for which reviews and ratings indicate longevity and silence.

3 out of 5 eggsNice, except the fan

This review is from: StarTech.com Black Aluminum 5.25in Rugged SATA Hard Drive Mobile Rack Drawer (DRW150SATBK)

Pros: Excellent build quality, easy to install, easy config (none needed)

Cons: NOISY fan, especially annoying @ start up, the fan makes a rhythmic almost grinding sound for the first few minutes until it warms up, but even after that it's still noisy. A switch on the back would be nice to set the fan speed.

Other Thoughts: If it weren't for the fan, I'd have given this 5 stars. Even still, it appears to be the best drive drawer out there.
