This review is from: SYBA SY-MR-35SOF 3.5" Serial ATA hard drive SATA II HDD-ROM mobile rack
I have a Corsair 650D case and I wanted to place an extra hard drive in the 5.25" bays above the front fan. I liked the subdued styling and lack of front LEDs.
This rack was easily installed using screws. (Make sure that the screws you are using are not of the long type.) The vibration damping is a nice touch, especially at this price.
The lack of fans turned out to be a non-issue. The rack is of an open design, and SMART data shows a Samsung F4 2TB 5400-rpm drive staying under 30 deg C.
Now I can easily hot-swap bare 3.5" drives.
I have a windowed case and I've gone to the effort of using black and well sleeved cables, so the bright red SATA and unsleeved power cables really don't look good -- and they can't be removed, either.
If I were swapping out drives several times a day, I might have concerns about the durability of this unit. It seems perfectly adequate for occasional use, though.
