SNT SNT-SAC3051B 5x3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Does the job and looks good. Fan doesn't seem all that noisy and keeps the drives sufficiently cool even during heavy IO. Flexible power options, between 3 Molex and 2 SATA power connectors.

Cons: Extremely poor documentation, almost nonexistent support. Locks are pretty flimsy and it seems that a drive could still be popped out with enough force even when locked. One bay on mine is faulty, still waiting for response from manufacturer.

Other Thoughts: To the reviewer complaining about one drive having a different idle LED than other drives, I emailed support and received this response:

Our engineer replied:

1)This is because the new HDD you bought has different access definition. This kind of LED is for both link and access. When the power is on, the signal of this HDD is on. This kind of LED definition makes the LED color looks different. This kind of HDD is few.

2)If you want to have the HDD with all the same LED signal colors, we can only suggest he buy the same brand/model to avoid this kind of difference.

This makes sense, as I'm using 3 ST31000340AS drives and 2 ST31000340NS drives. My idle LED on the AS drives is green, and is amber for the NS drives.

Antec Twelve Hundred Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Lots of expansion, high airflow, fans are quiet on low to medium speeds

Cons: Overall case depth is not enough. I found that cabling was very difficult as the motherboard ends right at the back of the 5.25" bays, making for some very tight connections. My previous case, a Lian-Li, was about 2" deeper and this made a world of difference in providing ample room for SATA and power cables.

SNT SNT-SAC3051B 5x3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good construction, fan works well with reasonable noise. Latch lock is a nice touch to prevent accidental dislodging of drives.

Cons: Extremely poor documentation. Still trying to determine what an amber LED means for one of my drives. All other drives have a green LED when idle. The drive is in perfect working order with no SMART predictive failure.
