Looks nice, none of that silvery paint that other brands like to use
Quiet, effective fan
Inexpensive but not "cheap"
Comes with long SATA cables with clips
LEDs don't indicate much
The fan just whispers and pulls enough air to cool the drives. I'm not sure if it's ball or sleeve as I couldn't find anything via the model number. I installed two SSDs, a VelociRaptor and a 1TB 3.5" HDD, all without a hitch.
However, the activity LEDs don't make any sense. First, all LEDs stay on unless activity occurs, which is opposite of normal. The one for the Samsung 830 SSD never blinks, the one for the LiteOn SSD seems to go out when activity occurs *most* of the time, and the ones for the HDDs make the most sense but still don't blink every time the mobo's IO activity light flashes.
I deducted an egg for the LED weirdness, as one reason I bought this was for individual drive activity lights.
