5 out of 5 eggs Exceptionally Functional 03/17/2013

This review is from: KINGWIN KF-253-BK 2.5"&3.5" Multi-Function Hot Swap Rack w/ USB 3.0 Hub

Pros:

High level of utility, hot swap bays for 2.5" and 3.5" drives in the same shell, plus USB 3.0 ports to fill internal headers. Works great in a case with four worthless 5.25" bays. Seems quite sturdy, and noise prevention is neat.

Cons:

Power switches might be a bad choice, while SATA is hot-swappable obvious problems if you switch it by accident during use. As a result of being highly functional it has a large number of parts, many moving, which worries me despite its sturdy frame. More importantly almost all of the internal metal is not sanded or rounded, and you could easily cut yourself so handle with care.

Other Thoughts:

I bought three, all fully functional, easily installed, and ran out of USB 3.0 headers on my board, so I used a 3.0 to 2.0 converter, and it still works great.

The idea of locks is great, and the 2.5" are nice but the 3.5" are either plastic or soft metal and dented when I tried using the first one.

Overall they are an excellent choice to make the most of a spare 5.25" bay, and I am happy with them.
