Great on Paper 02/23/2012
This review is from: StarTech SATSAS425BK Mini SAS to 4x 2.5in SATA/SAS 5.25in Hot Swap Backplane
SAS Connector to keep cables tidy, High Density 4x 2.5 in 5.25 slot. Nice little fan to keep things cool.
Drive Trays / "Doors" don't actually close "drive bays", instead allow for a 8mm gap. If this is for airflow I'm not sure but it is asking for a major dust bunny breeding farm. Two screws holding the connector board in the back on the power connector side came out within 5 minutes making plugging the power in impossible.
Great Idea on paper, Only 4x 2.5 -> 5.25 I've found with a true SAS port, but engineering and manufacturing quirks were a killer. RMAing this one.
