5 out of 5 eggsSeveral served me well over several years

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

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.
