Sexy home-server (or simple hot-swap_) equiptment 07/27/2014
This review is from: iStarUSA BPN-DE340SS-RED 3 x 5.25" to 4 x 3.5" SAS/SATA Trayless Hot-Swap Cage
It's really cool! Houses 4 HDDs in the space of 3 drive bays. Very easy to install, very easy to use and swap hard drives in and out of it. It even has a dedicated HDD status light for each drive, which lights up red, but through the same LED (which also lights up blue, for power), it appears purple. It even features key-locked doors, so you don't accidentally disconnect a running drive. You get to enable/disable the LEDs with a switch in the back of it, as well as change the fan speed from crazy fast, to slow. Fast, definitely hums pretty loud though.
Feels a little cheap, but it hasn't broken on me yet! So really, there aren't any. Maybe the fan is a bit too noisy when it's on its highest setting.
I am considering purchasing another one of these for my monster case. AMAZING for RAID configurations. <3
