Pros:

Installing this was okay. It's definitely easy to get your devices in. The instructions at least do mark well what the screws are. The screws come in a very nice plastic labeled case.

They put a sticker over the base pieces to keep them from being scratched. Be sure you take them off. I thought they were showing how they were recycled board or something and realized they were stickers after screwing on pieces (doofus). I afterwards realized they were stickers and had to unscrew from my HDDs to get them off.

It's light! The positioning of the USB is easy, and having a USB 3.0 keeps it modern enough.

Cons:

Instructions are adequate. They will somewhat help you but you'll be doing a little trial and error yourself.

You'll pretty much require two hard drives to get this secure. I was intending to use only one SSD with a bracket kit but the base portions require a HDD or at least something for each of the base stands to secure them.

They, even after install, are a tad flimsy. I was building this to put into a credenza and it's alright but I'd have liked a better more secure method for piecing the base portions together.

I don't know what to do with my PSU! I don't have a large PSU and the picture shows they set it next to the things but I assumed it would screw down. It definitely just sets there. I haven't found a screw configuration that can mount it at the right angle and make it work. So it kind of slides around.

Other Thoughts:

It's one of only a few open chassis. It's mostly fine, really I'm only frustrated with the power supply configuration method. Other than that it's what I wanted.
