Pros: Allows the mounting of a third drive where there was room for only 2
Various colors available if that's important to you. I lucked out, the sale cage matched my color scheme, but I would have purchased it regardless of the color
Cons: fan is a bit noisy and not locks not secure enough to prevent unauthorized drive removal
some reports of backplane failure, so I'm not using this to support my boot drive ( I was lucky enough to grab a Half XM case which has its own hot swap tray system and that is where my boot ssd resides)
depending on your build, you might run into some cable management issues
Other Thoughts: if you are critically short on drive bays, this system can be a lifesaver.
might have a problem with some cases, the fit is very tight, so watch out for the day ruining sharp metal edges on your PC
grab it while it's on sale, it's an easy buy. This product is available in a wide number of variations, more colors, more or less bays, but the common theme is, a two drive bay gets three positions, a three drive bay gets four and so on.
istar makes a bunch of neat products, similar in the "I got that oddball stuff you want" I've come to expect from startech.

This review is from: Acronis True Image 2015 For PC & Mac - 5 Devices
Pros: $3 per pc?..now that's a deal
Cons: all sorts of complaining about TI on the web, BUT if you own a WD drive, you can get a vendor specific version of TI for free. If that works well on your setup, you can move to the full version when needed.
Other Thoughts: I've been using TI for years while annoying at times, it never failed me. That's important foir disk recovery software.
First time I needed some help as this version had a license Miscount issue I had an agent on thier live chat and a support ticket in just a few minutes.
Downloading the bug fix version of ti2015 resolved the count problem ( 3 instead of five)
If you have a number of PC's this was a deal at $3 per license mac or windows
Pros: no dead pixels and it arrived intact
Cons: none really..monitors are like pocket knives these days..you can cut yourself pretty good with any of them if you aren't too particular.
It's not an uber high end display, but it's intended use didn't call for anything too pricey.
Other Thoughts: for the price I couldn't think of anything bad to say about the display.READ FULL REVIEW
