This review is from: XIGMATEK CCA-EMFCB-U01 4 in 3 HDD Cage Extra Hard Drive Bay

Pros:

*It fits 4x 3.5" hard drive in the space of 3 5.25" drives
*Has a nice large (120mm) fan
*Seems to be built well

Keeps my drives at 30°c pretty consistently (My 1TB is at 28°c). I had no problem swapping out for a different colored fan, and even tho some people had trouble getting the drives in Because of the rubber spacers, i had no problem at all (The trick is to go slow).

I am using it an older server case that has these weird mounting brackets, but Had no problem getting it in and mounter securely.

Cons:

The spacing between the drives is about 1/8", and the top drive is 2° hotter than the other 2 (33°c). I would have gone for a 3 drive configuration, however i have not tried running 4 drives and testing the temps. So it may not even be an issue.

I actually had trouble getting this into another xigmatek case! The front mesh drive covers on the case will not go back in from the front, and there is a fan cage in the back. leaving me no room to get it back in.

Other Thoughts:

I am very happy with it. Now i can eliminate another file server all together and as a result, keep my room (and drives) much cooler this summer.

Also, would NOT recommend this for a case that has mesh drive covers, or one without a front door. This was most likely designed for cases with mesh fronts, but the light leaking through is just to ugly. If you do buy it for a mesh front case, go with a regular fan or a dimmer LED (Red, Blue, purple), stay out of the middle range of the light spectrum (Green, yellow, pink, WHITE).
