Easy to install. Molex connectors cheaply made.

Pros: - Easy to install
- Looks nice with my black case

Cons: - Molex connectors are loose that allow to use the hard drive activity LED light were manufactured loosely.
- Mounting screws strip easily

Other Thoughts: Overall satisfied with product.
I've tested 2 out of the 4 trays i purchased and they both seem to work. will update on QC when i try the others.

Simple method to hot swap SATA drives

Pros: Inexpensive, effective, easy to operate

Cons: Apparently, current practice is to ship unit with SATA connector block unmounted, and have user attach it to the back of the rack. Screws were wrong (too short), and there was some indication of a previous attempt to attach connector. Best explanation is unit was sold previously, cobbled, and returned. Currently exchanging. Will know soon whether this was a fluke or standard fare. Doesn't work with rails or slide-in drive bay (might be able to mount with screws).

Other Thoughts: Please assemble the unit completely during manufacture, or at least make sure the screws are correct. Check returned merchandise before reselling.

Make your hard drives easy to swap

Pros: This rack converts any 5.25" system bay, ready to except ANY serial ATA 3.5" form factor drive (SATA I/II/III). In other words you can take a bare bones SATA drive and directly insert it into this drive bay. This, unlike older removable hard drive bays, where the hard drive had to be mounted into a tray and then inserted into an enclosed bay which severely restricted cooling. There is a locking mechanism to prevent unwanted removal. Lights indicate applied power and drive activity. Open air designed allows efficient cooling of hard drives, especially within modern computer cases specifically designed with hard drive bay cooling systems.

Cons: NONE, I have been using these for years without issue.

Other Thoughts: If you intend to use an SSD hard drive mounted in a 3.5" caddy (reference NewEgg part number N82E16817994169) then look for the Kingwin update to this hard drive rack (reference NewEgg part number 9SIA8HV32N1824) specifically designed for SATA III 6GBps transfer rates. One might ask WHY use these racks and caddies? There are many GOOD reasons, such as easily swapping out drives to allow a single computer to use different operating systems (such as running Windows XP OR Windows 7 on a single computer). The same for swapping drives with different data storage or archives. Or maybe you have a computer system running multiple RAID configurations (especially a mirrored RAID 1). Removable drives will allow extremely easy maintenance when it comes time to replace/rebuild a failed hard drive. Pick up a spare drive, insert it, rebuild it, and your off and running again without missing a beat. Never sweat losing your precious data or suffer system downtime due to a catastrophic hard drive failure again, these hard drive racks make hard drive use/maintenance extremely flexible.

Exactly what is needed

Pros: Is trivial to swap HD's in/out of a system. Makes using a 2nd drive for backup trivial.

Cons: Tried hot-swap, but my system wouldn't do it successfully. Not a fault of the rack, however.

Just What I Needed

Pros: It's simple and straightforward; no trays to mess with, no noisy little fans to clog with dust, etc. Just stick a hard drive in it and shut the door. I like that.

Cons: When I plugged the power cord (4-pin Molex) into my computer power supply, one of the wires came out of the connector. I re-inserted the wire, and it's been fine since. But I subtracted a star for that.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to use with the backup hard drive in my desktop computer. When the backup drive isn't in use, I remove it and stick it in an anti-static bag. This saves wear and tear on the hard drive. And it doesn't add more wire/cable clutter, like an external drive case does.

Good product

Pros: hot swapping in a snap, easy install.. comes with all the cables and screws you need.

Cons: Does NOT work well with a screwless drive bays, where you don't physically screw down the drive into the drive bay on BOTH sides.
The brackets on this product are spring loaded for noise/vibration cancellation, so they flex and easily pop out of the drive bay as you're pulling in and out HDDs. So get a decent case!

Other Thoughts: I was surprised it has LED lights on this thing, including HDD activity lights. Wasn't expecting that.

Good drive tray but not the best

Pros: Good drive tray that is identical to the Rosewill RX-C525 in look and design. It works and doesn't have a problem with the transfer rates. No logo on the front like the Rosewill model.

Cons: My only con is that compared to the Rosewill RX-C525, this tray feels a little stiffer. The tension bar (for smaller drives) is definitely more stiff and presses harder on top of the 3.5" drives. However, it didn't scrape or gouge the drive or any labels. In comparison, The Rosewill's tension bar is almost too lightweight.
