This review is from: NORCO DS-24E 24 3.5" Drive Bays One SFF-8088 "IN" connector for connection to the host, two SFF-8088 "OUT" connectors for expansion to an additional JBOD enclosure External 4U 24 Bay 6G SAS/SATA Expander Rackmount RAID / JBOD Enclosure
Pros: Great unit for the price. Does what it is supposed to do. Good support from the vendor, I had a failing PS unit and the vendor was very responsive (even over a weekend) with an new PS sent, no paper work required! I replaced the original fans for some quieter fans. I lost a little airflow but with 24 WD RE4 2 TB running 24 hours a day, highest temp seen is 104F. Given my office hit 75, and reduced the airflow, hard to beat. Additional note: The drive trays work well with 2.5” drives, I tested with some SSDs in and they worked great with SSDs with bottom mounted screws in the tray.
Cons: Fans are LOUD! but work great.
Other Thoughts: I’m about to get a second unit so I guess you can say I like it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great drive when it works! Most of mine had not problems, but only using for 2 years....
Cons: Drive with 2010 manufacturer date started having problems, start warranty process only to find it's out of warranty? RE4 drive has 5 year warranty, how can it be out of warranty. WD wants tons of paperwork for me to prove it should be in warranty. WD says "you can send us a scanned copy of the receipt as a JPG or GIF file attachment, and we will submit a request to update the warranty expiration date to be one year from the purchase date as long as the purchase date is within six months of the manufacture date."
WD website, newegg.com, other sellers websites all show 5 yr. warranty on RE4 drives.
Pros: Great price point and worked better when only a few drives installed. tried to put 15 new sata III drives today and found that slot 12 won't respond and 5 and 6 come and go.... Hopefully the replacement will work well.
LSI MegaRaid 9285-8e saw it rightaway! no poblems
Cons: Doesn't complelty work.... Slot 12 is dead and 5 &6 have intermitent problems.READ FULL REVIEW
