Flimsy

SNT SNT-SS425 RAID 0, 1, 5 (RAID card required) 4 x 2.5" HDD in 1 x 5.25" bay SAS/SATA 2.5" Hot Swap Backplane RAID cage

Pros: Looks nice, solidly built.

Cons: Drive latches break. Slightly oversized for 5.25" slot. Led's don't show activity.

Overall Review: I bought this with a RAID card for a hotswap array on a new build. The cage barely fit into the bay - I think it will never come out, scratched metal visible on top where the bay ate it. Either it's oversized, or my case is undersized - but a Samsung Bly-Ray fits in there perfectly. Hot-swap caddies require screws, no big deal, but after populating them with disks and installing to the cage, LED's light up but don't show activity. Thinking something was wrong, I took the caddies out as per the instructions, and every single one of the blue plastic latches snapped. Not particularly happy with that. Now I can't even return it as the top is scratched and the caddies are broken, oh well. I honestly wouldn't reccommend.
