1 out of 5 eggsCame broken

Pros: 3 drives in the space of 2 bays.

Cons: Plastic door came broken on two out of two units ordered. I can epoxy the door to the cage on one, but the other is in three pieces. Seems easier than RMA.

Other Thoughts: Who has the time to return low cost but serviceable product?

1 out of 5 eggspoor design

Pros: If you are looking to cool-of 2 drives this is not a bad solution.

Cons: - noisy fan
- do not cool 3 drives
- plastic door
- Depth 9" (from front to back, including sata connection)

Other Thoughts: As a d-400/200 owner the front filter is not useful. Got the same temp result for two drives using I-star win-7509 passive cooler (without fan). Definitely not recommended for 3 HDD.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Newegg Customer:



We sincerely apologize in advance for any inconvenience caused by this experience, but do rest assured that we will do all that we can to win your trust in iStarUSA brand.

The cooling issue mentioned in your review is duly noted. This product provides extra cooling air for up to three hard drives. Though the heat generated from the hard drives depends on how busy the drives operates, the rest of the cooling depends on your system environment setup and how heat is extracted from the chassis. Directly behind the D-400 right side bays is the power supply slot. If you are using a server depth power supply, it could limit the amount of air being expelled from your hard drives. The iStorm7 is the ideal cooling solution because 3 hard drives can be stored while just using up 2 x 5.25” drive bays. Whether or not this is a setup or fan issue, our technical support team will look into it. Please feel free to contact us regarding the findings.

Also, you can visit us on www.istarusa.com to see other cooling and fan options.

Warm Regards,

iStarUSAcare Service

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for what it does

Pros: Added three drive slots to my tool-less case. Much better than the clunky 3.5" to 5 " drive adapters

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Fan was not required, since my case is under a slight negative pressure. Others have complained about the quality of the front drop down door. It's plastic, people! Go easy with it and you'll have no problems.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes what it's supposed to

Pros: Holds 3 standard HDs in 2 5.25" bays. Air filter keep my case a bit cleaner.

Cons: None. I wear headphones when I use my computer, mostly for gaming and if that fan is noisy, I don't hear it.

Other Thoughts: HD's are snug in there, no lying there, but there is enough space between them for the air to flow, and that's what it does. Makes the air flow between them and moves them out of the other HD housings. My case is small, and I wanted to put in a larger video card. The new video card would hit the stock HD cage in the bottom. Luckily that HD cage is easily removed by removing some screws. This did exactly what I needed it to do. I didn't need hot swap or any fancy features, I just wanted my HD's up in the CD bays where they wouldn't affect the space I wanted to use for a long video card.

4 out of 5 eggsCould have been designed better

Pros: It has a filter and the fan is quiet when undervolted. It holds 3 drives in 2 ODD spots.

Cons: There is no space between the drives when you install 3. There is also no way for air to go besides up and over the top drive.

Other Thoughts: It does what it advertises, but the design of it could have been better.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Alternative To Icy Docks etc.

Pros: The parts are on par with what I would expect from a $25-30 build. I read one reviewer complain about the plastic face breaking easily, so I've been gentle with mine. The drives are TIGHT. To my disbelief and in contrary to my prior skepticism, the drives stay cool as can be. Might be that that fan really does the trick?

Cons: The fan is LOUD. However, itcould be replaced with just another 80mm case fan of lower CFM which might be to the detriment of temps, but my experience says that tight cooling control is non-superior to no cooling for HDD reliability.

Other Thoughts: For my homebuilt WHS, I've got a Coolermaster CM 690 II which has 6 3.5" HDD bays and 4 x 5.25" bays. I needed to expand to 12 drives. This was a much preferred alternative to the MUCH more expensive HDD brackets.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice Product

Pros: Very nice looking, I used it to fill in the empty slots and with built in fans is a plus. the product performed as advertised.

Cons: No Extra filter.

Other Thoughts: I've seen some reviews says the filter cover is hard to open and thats not true, It will fill tight if you try to PULL it open, the best way to open the filter cover is to press down on the tab then pull. hope this information help.

4 out of 5 eggsGood product overall, bad fan

Pros: Very solid design. Drives fit perfectly.

Cons: The bundled fan (Yate Loon D80SM-12) uses a SLEEVE bearing, and thus is practically guaranteed to seize up after a few years of continuous operation (mine did). For a "server accessory", this is unacceptable.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for long-term reliability, ditch the stock fan and replace it with a quality ball bearing model.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes the job

Pros: * Keeps the drives cool
* Flexible hard drive configuration

Cons: * Plastic front cover is not very sturdy

Other Thoughts: I bought this to cool two WD 2TB drives in a RAID 1 config for my home server. I didn't have a fan on the drives before but this thing cooled them from 113 F to 95 F. If you are using this in a desktop application where it is going to be setting right beside you, getting a quieter fan should also be on your purchase list. This is a great product for a unique situation.

5 out of 5 eggsNo issues

Pros: great for using 3 hard drives in 2 optical bays. fan provides good cooling, loud fan can be exchanged for quieter one. fan filter is useful for keeping out dust. door for fan filter is good, better than other similar items that require sliding a cover out. holes are drilled accurately and hard drives fit right.

Cons: fan might be louder than expected, door appears a bit flimsy,

Other Thoughts: works great, good price, would like to see a 5 drive, 3 bay version or one incorporating 2.5in drives
