This review is from: powercom KING RM KIN-2200APRM 2200 VA 1320 Watts 6 Outlets UPS
Pros: Lot of power, rack mountable, software isn't too terrible to setup
Cons: Way way too heavy to rack mount without rear support. Would have been nice if they included a bracket to mount to rear rails as well. Also it requires using traditional serial instead of USB for software.
Other Thoughts: This thing is a back breaker to move around. As stated above it can't be mounted on just front rails, it needs rear support. I happened to be mounting on the bottom of our rack so I was able to brace it off of the bottom, if you're going to mount it up higher you'll need to use your rear rails for extra support.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ARK 4U-500-CA Black 4U Rackmount Case 3 External 5.25" Drive Bays
Pros: Lots of drive bays, good mounting positions for case fans, rack mountable, accommodates massive 1000 watt power supply, various vibration reducing hardware
Cons: Although this *will* fit in a standard depth rack it's very tight.
Other Thoughts: This houses our high end DVR system and does a great job with it. The biggest complaint is that it's very tight in our TrippLite SRW18US rack. I had to mount it at the very front and remove the handles to get the door to close. Cables in the back do fit but if not careful you could easily block the vent fans with cables.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 16 hard drives on one card, simple setup (windows 7 took care of it all before I even put in the driver disc)
Other Thoughts: We use this in a high end pc based DVR. We currently have 13 storage drives, all of which connect through this single LSI card. We got 4 of the 3ware CBL-SFF8087OCF-05M (available here on Newegg) cables to break out the 4 SFF-8087 ports to 16 sata connections.READ FULL REVIEW
