ICY DOCK Black Vortex MB074SP-1B 3.5” SATA HDD 4 in 3 Hot-Swap Module Cooler Cage
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Looks absolutely gorgeous in my case and gives me somewhere functional to put my RAID array. Frees up some SATA power cables, which is nice.

I purchased this after mistakenly purchasing the bare-bones version of this cage due to IcyDock's misleading descriptions. The other cage I got didn't lock the drives in place worth jack, but this one is very solid. Perhaps the other one was used as it was also slightly bent.

I'd recommend this if you have a blue/black themed case and 3 spare 5.25in drive slots.

Cons: Enough build quality issues to warrant removing 2 stars.

The webbing on the sides of the cage serve little purpose other than to make the promotional photos look better as it is hidden when the cage is installed and ends up decreasing the overall structural integrity.

The switches on the front are also a joke; they're about .25 inches too long and are very cheap so instead of sliding nicely around, they just bend. It feels like they're going to snap every time I move them.

The dust filter on the front looks absolutely awful because whoever was applying the mesh at the factory had evidently lost the will to live and it isn't even remotely flat.

Finally, it would be nice to have a more solid door latch than just a piece of raised metal on the door and a divot in the cage body. Even just a ball bearing on a spring would have felt nice; anything to make the connection more solid and that won't eventually wear down the paint and become useless.

Other Thoughts: Maybe I would have been nicer if this was the first IcyDock product I'd purchased.

SYBA SY-PCI40037 SATA II (3.0Gb/s) 1:5 (5x1) Port Multiplier PCI Mounting Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Simple, cheap hardware RAID card with 5 SATA ports. Brilliant idea! 3 year warranty as well, which will be needed.

Cons: Not very reliable. Mine was sketchy on arrival and while I didn't lose any data, I had to pay to send the card back. We'll see how the new one fares.

Other Thoughts: It's a great product for the money, just be prepared to have to send it back sooner or later. What do you expect for $50?
