NORCO RPC-4224 4U Rackmount Server Case with 24 Hot-Swappable SATA/SAS Drive Bays
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Mine came with the SSD tray and 120mm fans!!!
Price point!
Solid feeling

Cons: Fans could be better, but for the price I won't complain
Not trayless (you have to screw down your drives)

Other Thoughts: The cons don't matter at this price, but be warned, WAIT until you receive your unit before going out and buying the 120mm fan bracket or SSD tray. I got a little excited and ordered both from [unnamed], I should have waited...

SNT SNT-BPSS403ATL 3 x 5.25
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Keeping my drives cooler than the other similar drive bays, seems to be due to the larger spaces between doors, letting more air through
I can pop them open without setting off alarms and detaching power, this is especially good for finding your drive that went bad
have not had to reset any drives yet, seems to have a good backplane

Cons: one bay never wants to snap shut, have to fool with it some for it to stay shut, once shut you don't really fool with it anyway, so not docking an egg
not as sturdy as my older bays. not a huge concern though

Other Thoughts: fans are small, not sure how long they will last, but they look replaceable if the time comes

Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 ST3000DM001 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: 11 Drives are still going strong
Seagate Support offers advanced replacement (and is prompt)
In my RAID5 these are fast, transfers 500-700mb/sec

Cons: 4 drives failed between 14 and 18 months (one a month)
1 Drive has been throwing errors for the past few months (probably next)

Other Thoughts: If doing a RAID, have a hot spare on hand, I almost had two fail side by side before I could replace and rebuild my RAID, I was VERY lucky... I rated so high due to the ease of getting these drives replaced, I also purchased the 3 year extended warranty on mine, so I am good for at least 5 years.
