iStarUSA BPU-350SATA-RED 3x5.25

5 out of 5 eggs A must have for multiple drive systems 02/21/2015

This review is from: iStarUSA BPU-350SATA-RED 3x5.25" to 5x3.5" SAS/SATA 6.0 Gb/s Hot-Swap Cage

Pros: 5 drives in the space of three with easy hot swap. Got to love this. Had mine over a year and still no problems. Easy to attach connections.

Cons: Not a flaw with the device, but a FYI. You're basically installing a 3 bay box. Any guide rails or tabs inside your drive cage need to be removed or bent down flush. Installing in older or cheaper cases are easier to work with in this regard.

Other Thoughts: Don't be a moron like myself, the 5 bay unit needs to be mounted with the drives vertical unlike any picture you'll see of this device.

Sans Digital 4-Bay eSATA RAID 0/1/10/5/JBOD Tower Storage Enclosure w/ 6G PCIe Card TR4M+B (Black)

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The enclosure seemed to perform well enough and the construction of it was well done.

Cons: Boot up of the RAID card is very slow.
The management software and its documentation was very confusing and poor. I don't think I would had been able to rebuild the RAID if I needed to. That was what made me try another product.

Other Thoughts: I ended up going with a different company that sells standalone NAS devices and am very happy with their products.
