2 out of 5 eggsFan troubles, mount troubles

Pros: Has a solid feel, drive lights are stylish and work properly, the drives insert and remove smoothly. Construction is solid. Were it not for the troubles described below, this would easily be a 5 egg review.

Cons: Purchased two of these - the first one the fan began failing within a few days, made this awful buzzing sound that tapping/cleaning/stopping and manually spinning the fan would not correct. The second one's fan suffered the same fate within a week and a half thereafter. I do not see a way to replace the fans, but I'll admit to not looking all that hard. I've considered warranty replacement, but after all the reports of fan trouble here and my own fan failures on both units, I don't know that it's even worth the hassle of replacing it as I don't imagine the replacements will work any better.

Also, as another reviewer said, these may not be mounted properly with screwless rails. I see this as a *serious* design flaw. The plastic enclosure has 4 holes drilled, and the threading for each screw to twist into doesn't begin until the metal innards are reached through a good 4mm or so of plastic. The plastic's holes are also wider than the screws which can cause screwless rail troubles.

Other Thoughts: The devices come with a special molex adapter that provides drive power with standard SATA power plug, and fan/light power with a small special 4 pin connector. Connecting the 4 pin is optional, thus disconnecting solves the fan noise. Yes the drives are largely enclosed, but because they are occupying a 5.25" bay, there's a good clearance between each drive and any other heat producing devices, so if the temperature is reasonable within the case, the drives shouldn't be dangerously hot (they DO run quite warm). That said, pulling the connector also disables the drive lights. There are 2 lights, blue for power, red for activity. It's a given that the blue light is lit if the drive is inserted and the door is closed, so that's useless, the red however is handy. Of the 4 pins, 2 control fan/blue light, and 2 control the red drive activity light. There is a wire for each pin. My warranty is likely voided, but my activity light works, and the fan is disabled :)

3 out of 5 eggsCL-HD-MRUCD, good but flawed

Pros: Installs easily, does what it claims to do, allows for easy swapping of SATA drives.

Cons: Key does not control power. See 'Other Thoughts' for my concerns re heat and the fan.

Other Thoughts: The innards of this mobile rack are the same its lower priced, open air, cousin, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817998031 but this one has a surrounding cover and a small exhaust fan on the back which supposedly gives better cooling. Not so in my careful (though not meticulous) testing in a well ventilated case. I prefer the alternative which is cheaper and has no fan to fail and keeps the drive just as cool. Should the fan fail in this version the heat must really build up fast; it's a largely closed box.

2 out of 5 eggsBad Fan

Pros: Newegg has sent a replacement unit right away. Newegg paid for the return delivery once I asked for it.

Cons: The fan was not working after initial installation. Unit was returned for a replacement the next day.

Other Thoughts: Seems other buyer(s) have experienced a fan failure. Suggest that if you install this unit you carefully note whether the fan is working before you install a hard drive in it, otherwise you may cook the drive. Whenever you are making a return be sure to make a "chat" and requst a UPS label for the return, otherwise you will have to pay for it. You aren't told this up front.

5 out of 5 eggsnice little unit

Pros: Moderate cost for a nice looking mobile rack that has it's own cooling. Very easy install with a quiet 40mm fan

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I've never had a single disc read error with one of these (have owned 3), and there are no jumpers to mess with. Just slide it in and forget about it.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Useful

Pros: Simple to install, easy to use, and functions without error.

Cons: None that I've experienced.

Other Thoughts: This device requires screw mounting to keep it in place when closing the drive. Thus if used in a screwless case, you'll need extra long screws to go through the screwless drive keeps and into the HDD case.

4 out of 5 eggsIt actually works

Pros: Basically, all these hot swap cases do the same thing. What makes one better than other is the ability to keep the drive as cool as possible. And this one does keep KKKKkool.

Cons: Anyone selling replacement fans this size?

Other Thoughts: Forget those fanless /coverless cases thinking that that will allow more air flow. The drives get super hot.
When I first looked at it and saw the size of the fan, I thought no way this 1 inch fan could do any good. But after installing it and decoding 8 hours of AVI files, the drive was as cool to the touch as I could expect.
I didn't give it 5 stars because the time factor in how long this little fan will last.

5 out of 5 eggsFabulous!

Pros: Works like a charm! I bought this to allow me to multiboot different OS's on one system without messing with partitions, boot loaders and the like. All I have to do now is take a hard drive, slip it in and boot to Linux, XP, Vista or the Win 7 beta, no fuss, no muss.
Also, no tray to mess with so ANY SATA HDD can be slipped in very quickly.

Cons: I do wish that unlocking the drive door would disconnect power to the drive for hotswap purposes and the case can be finicky to get into some cases

Other Thoughts: Purchasing two more for hotswap data storage...
