This review is from: StarTech SBAY5BK 5 Drive 3.5in Removable SAS SATA Mobile Rack Backplane
Pros: - full featured
- incredible airflow... you can easily feel the draw from the dual 60mm fans when you put your hand in from of it
- blue/purple LEDs are a nice alternative to the standard green/amber
- curved door design is actually very aesthetically pleasing (looks cool)
- I really like the spring loaded mechanism that eject the drive when the door is opened.
Cons: The only con I can think of was mentioned by the previous reviewer. The keys... they are certainly cheap looking and likely to break over time, however, a close inspection revealed them to be a simple hex keys (Allen wrench). A trip to your local hardware store for the appropriate size, 3-5mm at a guess, would serve as a perfect replacement.
Other Thoughts: This is my second SATA backplane and my first tray-less backplane. Both cost about the same but the tray-less has more features and far superior airflow... Tray-less = WinREAD FULL REVIEW

Pros: 6 bucks for a HDMI cable, great value. Works like a champ. Using on XBox360 Elite, PS3, HD DVR, and HTPC...all work flawlessly.

Pros: I have 5 of these in a RAID 5 array that has been running at 100% up-time since they first synced after installation. You simply cannot argue with those results.
Cons: Does not being a 10K RPM Raptor count as a real Con???
Other Thoughts: My RAID card support 8 drives so I will be maxing it out when the budget permits.READ FULL REVIEW
