Absolutely excellent.

Pros: High-quality aluminum construction. Have enclosed three SSD's and a HDD--all working well. Throughput as advertised. The two small fans at the back are silent. I must correct myself from my earlier review.

Cons: You must be a little careful installing the drives lest you mess up, which means that rapid changes will be unlikely. Not a big deal, just watch what you're doing.

Overall Review: I have a Corsair Air 540 case and, besides the two GPU-side 3.5” hot swap bays, the "four 2.5” tool-free SSD drive cages," actually a hard-to-position plastic cube sitting above the power supply, make drive changes a pain. So I waited for this to become a shell shocker again to purchase. Looking in, out and all around, the construction of this box is excellent, beyond expectations. If you read the instructions, the LED lights are well explained, and if you are careful the installation of the cage and the drives is routine. It has an "on-off" switch for the LED's, which doesn't actually switch off the LED's, but merely causes them to not blink.

Tremendously useful for access to four 2 1/2" drives in the small space. The blinking links are very useful at the front of your case because you can see exactly which drives are being accessed. Just great. Each powered drive gets a solid green light, and if there is activity in any drive the red led next to it lights up. This is worth the full regular price, let alone anything less. Kudos to the company.

Impressive quality & performance

Pros: Attractive design. Looks great mounted in full tower case, mounts flush and fits nicely.
Quality craftsmanship. Removable trays feature a precision cut aluminum mounting plate and well crafted aluminum hinge to remove/insert drives.
Reliable performance. In daily use for several months, populated by a mix of 256GB SSD's and 500GB 7200rpm laptop drives (decommissioned from Qosmio for upgrade).
Only one SATA power plug is required to power this unit.

Cons: Sliding rail was a tiny bit stiff as new, however if drive is removed and inserted several times it will graduate to an easy insertion. Dust tends to accumulate over breathing holes over time. In a case with negative pressure environment this area will force air in and likely collect dust. This is easily remedied by removing drive and dusting it off with a soft cloth or compressed air.

Overall Review: This has been a reliable performer for several months. Pretty much rock steady and complements this item also purchased from Newegg --> SYBA SI-PEX40057 PCI-Express 2.0 x2 Low Profile SATA III (6.0Gb/s) 4-ports RAID Card. Depending on your choice of case be sure that you use SATA3 compliant cables (as many people tend to recycle cables from previous machines that may not support full speed of SATA3) and that they are long enough to stretch/reach the device. I purchased 18" SATA3 cables separately for this reason and was able to conceal them through case hole routing for a sharp build appearance.

Has issues

Pros: Looks great and installed easily, I found it easiest to slide in after installing a 5.25" Blu-ray drive beneath the bay this unit was installed in. The red backplate makes it easy to spot the connector locations in the dark.

Cons: The lights on mine are flashing red non-stop regardless of the LED switch position, something is clearly faulty with my unit.

Overall Review: The manual for this product does not have any appendix with LED codes to indicate what the red flashing lights mean. I already swapped out all of the SATA data cables and SATA power cable, giving it a dedicated power cable from a different port off a modular power supply but no dice. I hate having to deal with RMA.

Absolutely Perfect

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing

Overall Review: It works perfectly. It looks so damm good that I had problems installing it inside the case and really wanted to leave it exposed near my computer. Yep, it's that good. Only 1 power cable is needed and it is fantastic. Build quality and materials are top shelf. Money well spent. Thank you iStarUSA for releasing such an amazing product!

Up Date

Pros: See other thoughts

Cons: See other thoughts

Overall Review: I made a mistake about the price of the hot swop racks. I order two and with shipping it came to around $23. So a bay runs around $9. Sorry about the mistake.

Good Quality Drive Cage

Pros: All machined aluminum construction, dual fans, very nice looking. Full speed 6 GB/sec transfer rates perfect for RAID SSDs.

Cons: Fans are quiet but not silent. Sliding the drive trays back into the unit can sometimes be tricky. It is easy to accidentally miss engaging the rails on one side. The key is to not "force" a drive in if it puts up resistance as it is likely not on both rails.

Overall Review: These are great cages. I have four of them for a large scale SSD raid.

Nicely put together
