3 out of 5 eggsI'd have paid more for better quality

Pros: Does what it was made to do, once you get any motherboard and Windows issues resolved with hotswapping drives.

Cons: The unit works. I'm transferring about 30 gigs of files as I type this. The biggest issue with this unit is twofold.
1. If you have an Antec, or similar case that uses rails to mount a drive in the 5.25 bays, you will have to either bent the tabs on this unit, or modify it some other way to make it work. The dampening grommets on this unit allow too much movement, and the unit won't stay in place.
2. If this unit had better quality components, it would be worth another $10 for that alone. As it is, baby it, because you WILL be replacing it if you use it very often. Construction leaves a bit to be desired.

Other Thoughts: In my opinion, the manufacturer would have been far better off to construct this so the drives stick out enough to insert and remove them manually. A lot of cheap moving parts could have been dispensed with, and the money put into a more solid, and better fitting(drive bay) construction. Still, I'm glad i bought it, because I needed it, and it does work.

Why 3 eggs? I refuse to give high ratings to cheap products anymore. Yes it works. Until it doesn't, because it's made NOT to last.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Device

Pros: Bought this for my test rig so I can test and clone drives. Works just as advertised. I cannot comment on hot swap as the mainboard I have it on is a little older Asus A8N-SLI.
I have used it for 50 drives of every kind of brand and it has recognized every one.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Newegg Rocks

3 out of 5 eggsWorked well for a short while

Pros: - Makes uses of an extra 5 1/4" bay
- Has both 2.5" & 3.5" bays
- Great for swapping out hard drives on a regular basis
- Power switch to be able to power down the drives when not in use

Cons: - The latch for the 3.5" door is very weak and does not properly stay closed after only a few uses (less than a dozen). The metal that secures the door latch seems to have bent so it no longer holds the latch. While I can bend it back, I don't feel confident in that being a long term fix. With the latch not securing the door properly, I can still get it to work but I have to be very careful as slight movement of the door will cause the drive to disconnect.

Other Thoughts: If they fixed the poor latching 3.5" bay door, I would have given this 5 stars but after fairly minimal use, it's already showing signs of wear.

4 out of 5 eggsPerfect for what I needed

Pros: - Inexpensive way to have a 3.5" and 2.5" hot swap bay in a single 5.25" space.
- No need for trays. The bays are designed to guide a bare drive into the necessary location.

Cons: - Things are more flexible than I'd like.
- Tray latches can be tricky to open (2.5") and close (3.5").
- On thin 3.5" drives you have to be careful to keep the bottom of the drive on the bottom of the bay or it won't line up the connector properly.

Other Thoughts: If you're used to genuine server hardware this will seem a bit soft but for the occasional swapping of drives for backups or maintenance it is perfect. Will it last forever, probably not, but it isn't too pricey and works as advertised.

I have this in a linux box I use for cloning drives and general maintenance tasks which previously had an external drive enclosure. Now it is all in one box and works fine.
