Great product, but be prepared for poor documentation 09/15/2012
I went with the SNT SAC3051B over other similar products because it has a bigger and more powerful fan, which is cool (get it, cool...). The fan has 2 settings, 2400 rpm and 3600 rpm. Since this server is in it's own room, I left the setting at 3600.
The biggest con is the poor documentation and results in losing one egg. That said, if you read the reviews here, you can learn what you need to know.
1) As 12o points out (thanks bud!), there are tiny little push button power switches for each of the 5 bays. On first use you may have to press these buttons. The LED lights will come on to let you know the bay is powered up.
2) The back of the cage has three 4-pin molex power connectors and two sata power connectors. You DON'T have to connect all 5 up. I used the two sata connectors and it works fine.
