5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

Pros: Well constructed! Drive bay works great, tried it with a few different 2.5" drives I had laying around

The little lock on the doors helps avoid mistakenly opening a drive bay while it is in use. I have one bay running all the time and the second I use as hot swap for other drives and imaging purposes. Would also come in handy if you have kids I guess.

I love the on/off switch for the HDD activity lights on the front.

The aluminum helps with heat dissipation.

Cons: Mine does not eject the drives very far and it is kind of a pain to grab them and pull them out. That is a minor annoyance to me because I have this installed in my home server and don't remove the drives that often.

Other Thoughts: What's with the go fast racing stripe down the top?? Well who cares, I like it. : )

5 out of 5 eggsSimple idea - Awesome tech

Pros: Quick to implement into my Antec Sonata case. Through a pair of Samsung 840 Pro's in and have been running great ever since. I will be adding this to all of my builds going forward.

Cons: n/a

Other Thoughts: I had to use SATA straight connection cables as my modular cage for 3.5" bay negated the use of elbowed connectors.

4 out of 5 eggsworks fine

Pros: It works as expected.

Cons: One of the SATA connector becomes loose (I cannot feel the locking "click" anymore) after a few plugging/unplugging, so I have to be careful when connecting the cable to it.

Other Thoughts: First time using a hot-swap cage, it's really convenient.

4 out of 5 eggsGood construction, but...

Pros: mostly made of aluminum and well-constructed; 2.5" drives fit fairly snugly inside (it would help to lubricate the sides with some silicone for easier removal; requires only one power connector for 2 drives

Cons: it wasn't well documented that the cage only fits the floppy drive slot in the front of a pc case, NOT the regular 3.5" HDD slot, because the spacing of the screw holes on the side is different. I suppose that makes sense because it's meant to be hot-swappable from the front of the case.

5 out of 5 eggsSharp Product

Pros: Great brushed aluminum case. The hinges are metal, except for the latches a person grabs onto to pull the drive out. The locking mechanism works as expected and I had no issues getting the drives seated into their connectors.

Cons: My only Con is that the LED activity lights are green! I purchased the sister cage which has for bays and sits in a 5.25 slot, but it's LEDs are a pretty blue and pink. I might reach out to iStarUSA on this, but I may just mod the LEDs myself.

1 out of 5 eggsWhat a piece of junk

Pros: Made of aluminum - sounds like it should be durable. Price?

Cons: When inserting the drives, it felt like they didn't fit into the connectors and I was pushing the back of the drive bay out. Turns out this was partially true: I needed to use the plastic inserts that came with my SSD's to help align the connectors (only helped a little - I still needed to eyeball the connection and help the drive up or down to meet the connector properly).

I inserted then removed the drives only to have one completely stuck - I needed a screwdriver to pry the drive out because the ejector failed. I am sooooo disapointed with this product (and it looked like it had so much potential.

Thank goodnessI bought it from New Egg so I can return it and get a cage that actually works!

5 out of 5 eggsthese are great

Pros: Well built
I have several of these and they all work
They fit into removable bays so if you don't have a 2.5" mount you could stick it in there.

Cons: If you stick it in a removable 3.5" bay you only have access to one drive in the 2.5" one.

Other Thoughts: i'm using some of these in a 3.5" removable cage and use the the unused bay to either store the keys in or keep a backup drive in. Icydock makes a nice single drive adapter for 3.5" cages and I have a couple of those. If you only need a single adapter i would just get that one.
