Good but miscategorized product

5.25IN USB3.0 Flash Card Reader Black Panel With USB 2.0/3.0/IEEE 1394/ESATA/HD Audio Ports
5.25IN USB3.0 Flash Card Reader Black Panel With USB 2.0/3.0/IEEE 1394/ESATA/HD Audio Ports

Pros: USB 3 Realtek card reader. Easy installation and long cables -- all cables other than USB 3 cable attach to the internal hardware using standard SATA or pin header connections.

Cons: NewEgg refuses to acknowledge that this is a "card reader," not a controller. This has no fan control capability. Of course, card readers have regularly had discounts, and this "mistake" ensures that this product does not qualify.

Decent product but needs better QA/QC

Rosewill RSV-SATA-Cage-34 - Hard Disk Drives - Black, 3 x 5.25" to 4 x 3.5" Hot-Swap - SATA III / SAS - Cage
Rosewill RSV-SATA-Cage-34 - Hard Disk Drives - Black, 3 x 5.25" to 4 x 3.5" Hot-Swap - SATA III / SAS - Cage

Pros: Same drive cages as used in RSV-L4411 server/rackmount case. Good rear layout, can run off 1 molex connector (provides two for redundant power supplies (i.e., when used in server cases)

Cons: QA/QC needs work. One drive sled came without one of the metal leaf springs that hold the sled against the side of the cage. The sled fortunately works without the missing leaf spring.

Overall Review: Inspect the unit carefully when you get it. The unit appeared fine until I pulled out the fourth sled to finally load a drive into it.
