Pros: This Masscool fanless 5.25 container for 2.5" drives does what I need it for as I didn't want a small noisy fan to cool SSDs. Been using this in my setup for a few weeks and I don't see there would ever be an issue with it. There really isn't anything that'll break (unless you're physically beating on it for some reason).
I especially like how it takes very little depth which works wonderfully for my particular case.
It also works fine with my SATAIII OCZ Vertex3 SSD drive. So, don't let the confusion with high speed or locking connectors for SATAIII spook you from considering this. None of that SATAI/II/III silliness matters where speed or interoperability is concerned. I don't really see the need for a locking SATAIII connector anyway.
Cons: It was a really tight fit for me getting this into my Cool Master Elite 120 mini-itx case. I had push very hard to get it flush with the face plate. No biggie though as its in there to stay now.
Other Thoughts: If you're into the smaller is better mini-itx crowd then I'd suggest putting this in your case if you have a worthless cdrom bay creating dead space.
4 x 2.5" bays in this device is perfect as my p8z77-i m/b doesn't have any more than 4 SATA connectors anyway.
