Pros: Looks & latches better than the IcyDock I had (and returned). Yes the latches are made of plastic and can break if you try to FORCE it into closing. I never force these -- I always wiggle the tray so I can gingerly close the latch; I don't foresee these latches breaking on me for the 10 years I'll probably have it. The LED's look much better than the ugly green ones that come with the IcyDock (which bleeds light everywhere through the vents as well--yuck).

Cons: For me there aren't any cons. I disable the purple activity lights (which didn't seem to work on certain drives anyways). I disabled them cause I have a blue lit case and want the 4 drive bay to match the system. Each drive has a power light that is blue. I just rely on the system case's HDD led for HD activity from any of the drives.

Overall Review: You should buy this if you want a good, affordable 4x2.5" drive bay. Do yourself a favor and disable the activity lights--yuck.
