THIS HDD COOLER LOWERS NOISE
Pros: Thank you gust334 for your excellent review of this product. Well done and interested buyers should read it carefully. He covers all the bases with his review, and I found it most helpful. This Cooler surely is a well designed and made product.
Cons: My cooler came with a hairline crack in one of the rubber damper mounting assembly screws. I was looking at an RMA of a heavy $15 product...sigh. I figured I might as well try to mount it and test it for fit, quality, etc. to determine if I should get a refund or replacement.
Other Thoughts: I decided to contact SYBA directly by the email on their support page, and just ask that a replacement damper be shipped to me. To my pleasant surprise they responded in less than 24 hours with apologies for the cracked damper and assurances they would be happy to mail me a free replacement.

Pretty, Unique, Silent
Pros: Sleek Design, Makes my HD's almost silent (Can't hear them over my reservoir pump.) Using Passive Cooling fins that stick out of the front of your case it cools fairly well.
Cons: Not a con: Takes some time to put together.
Other Thoughts: I couldn't tell you how well these reduce the heat in the drives. I do notice a difference, but to what extent, i don't know. I purchased these 1) for style 2) for vibration dampening, and it does those 2 things well.

Big solid heatsink
Pros: Detailed manual with clear detailed color pictures and text in French and English.
Cons: Not obvious from the pictures, there are no screws that actually hold the hard drive in place within the heatsink. This means that if your drive is not the standard one-inch height, it will be loose inside the cavity formed by the other components.
Other Thoughts: A thin plate secures to the bottom with four screws; a thin foam sheet prevents shorting and will lightly clamp a standard one-inch-high disk drive but does not completely immobilize it. A heavy front casting is secured to the main heatsink with two screws. A thin back plate and a small block of foam complete the entrapment of the drive.
