5 out of 5 eggsCan't wait to get another one

Pros: Have had this thing for a couple years now its nice to be able to grab your drive and go in a pinch. Would like to get some more for other machines to make it easier to transfer files from machine to machine instead of having to rely on something like a nas

Cons: screws are tiny easy to lose not a deal breaker

Other Thoughts: would love to grab my other tray unfortunately its sitting in storage 900 miles away :(

4 out of 5 eggsNice features

Pros: - 3 in 2 configuration
- SAS and SATA 6.0 Gbps, even though I don't know anything about SAS
- fits perfectly on case; adequate clearance with the 24-pin PSU connector on the motherboard
- relatively solid construction
- drives slide in perfectly
- accepts both 3.5 and 2.5 drives
- individual on/off button for each drive
- hdd activity lights and overheat alarm
- connections for either SATA power or MOLEX power for flexibility, two each
- fan only runs when drives are turned on
- fan not very noisy for my taste at least in low setting but I'm not very picky in this sense
- SATA and power ports are on side away from motherboard do there's easy access
- all attaching hardware and 3 SATA cables included in box

Cons: - drives secured to tray with screws
- fan not readily replaceable; may need to take this thing apart
- fan speed, temp buzzer setting controls on side closer to motherboard so not very accessible
- temp selection for overheat is of jumper type
- no auto fan speed setting, just low and high
- vent holes in backplane seem small but so far I've registered max temp of 46C on an old Maxtor 7Y250MO with 2 drives in and fan set to low; having plenty of case fans also helps; might be different story if I had all 3 trays used

Other Thoughts: Installed in Raidmax Super Viper case with MSI 760GM-P34FX motherboard.

Overall, very good and would recommend it for relatively permanent hdd installations, unless you don't mind having to screw drives in frequently. Still it's more convenient than having to open the case. If installing only 2 drives recommend using top and bottom trays and leave the middle tray empty for better cooling.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks as intended

Pros: HD activity LEDs, temperature alterts. Removing and installing drives is very easy.

Cons: Fan is a little loud for me on the low setting.

Other Thoughts: Works pretty good the LEDs aren't too bright which is nice.

Fan has high and low fan setting switch. I thought high was way too loud but low was somewhat tolerable.

Going to change out fan to see if it makes a difference.

Overall I like it.
