Pros: Looks cool. Sucessful in performing simultaneous full format of two 3TB drives.
Cons: Unstable. Formatting a drive in the unit failed when I used an optical drive attached to the mombo. With four drives in the unit I tried to format two drives and copy data to two more drives. After a few hours all four operations failed with errors in the event log. There's no point in having multiple bays if you can't reliably perform multiple simultaneous operations.
Other Thoughts: This is the first time I've ever had a complaint about a StarTech product. It really pains me to write a negative review, but this product has wasted many hours of my time. I have a fast, stable, rock-solid i7 Win7-64 machine that is not bogged down with processes. I should have gotten a two bay unit and saved desk space.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: COOLMAX HC-301 Aluminum Alloy Aluminum Hard Disk Driver Cooler
Pros: My research showed this to be at the best price point of products of its type. I have four of them and they perform exactly as expected and look great also. A quieter solution than adding case fans. Fans are user replacable (just splice the wires). Lower-profile than some other units. I'm buying ten more today!
Cons: Not a one. The wires are even tied nicely with a twiet tie at the perfect length for tidy installation of the pass-through power connector.
Other Thoughts: Make sure you have enough space under your drives for them. (See the dimensions in the specs.)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SIIG JU-H42B22-S2 4-Port USB2.0 Front Panel Hub
Pros: This unit has worked just fine with every combination of devices that I have thrown at it, including: multiple Addonics drive enclosures, an HP camera, and a Lexar Jump Drive. It is connected to the following internal card (also from NewEgg): SYBA PCI USB 2.0 4+1 port controller card Model SD-V2-5U - Retail. By the way, the SYBA is a PCI 2.2 compliant card, but it works great in my PCI 2.1 compliant Tyan Tsunami S1830 motherboard.
Cons: I can't find anything to complain about except that I would have prefered a beige one--not any big deal though.
Other Thoughts: This unit should work with any AT or ATX power supply that has one unused floppy drive-style power connecter. My unit came not only with the USB cable needed to connect it to your existing USB 2.0 bus, but it also came with a wye adapter to convert one standard drive power connector to both a standard drive connector and the required floppy-style connector, so it would have worked even if I didn't have any available connectors prior to installation. Contrary to what was reported by a previous reviewer, the green lights on my unit do not go out when a device is soft-disconnected through Windows (XP Professional SP2). My lights stay on until the device is removed or power is switched off on a device that has its own external power supply. Not sure why there's a discrepancy (maybe it's the USB card I have it paired with), but the unit appears to be functioning normally.READ FULL REVIEW
