Pros: Rack-mountable, comes with ears and rails. the rails are adjustable, i have mine set for same size as supermicro 836 chassis. with freenas server, switch, desktop connected, load is at 30%, and runtime is 23 minutes. i chose this over a similar APC, because the nic add-on card was significantly cheaper $200-300.
Cons: i am using this in a homelab, not in a datacenter. even when "off" there is a fan that runs makes a small creaky niose. when it boots, the fan at full blast is loud. at normal temp/load, this is by FAR the loudest thing in the room. i do not think i could sleep with it on, and desktop fans do not bother me. Also, the front LED is fairly bright. its like a nightlight for the room.
Other Thoughts: pretty good for a homelab, especially if it is in another room.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I work in a datacenter. These are the longer rails. im using this on a sc838 at home it stick out the end a bit. these are the ones you want for a 2-4u server. comes with a screw pak, screws for the side and to screw to rails.
Cons: requires user to know how to install rails. won't do your dishes.
Other Thoughts: takes 2u. weighs a few pounds. needs something like a small flat head to remove.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: Put this in my file server with 8 hard drives. powers up fine. is quiter than the 2 80mm fans in front. am considering buying another for my norco 4220 that will end up with 20 drives.
Cons: not 100% modular? think the main power is permanatly attached. nothing to fret over. did not need the video 6 pin cables so cannot comment on those.READ FULL REVIEW
