Worked well for a short while
Pros: - Makes uses of an extra 5 1/4" bay
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.

Perfect for what I needed
Pros: - Inexpensive way to have a 3.5" and 2.5" hot swap bay in a single 5.25" space.
Cons: - Things are more flexible than I'd like.
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.
