So far it's been great

Pros: Quick access to the drives. Decent build quality for the price. I would buy again.

Cons: The Indicator lights are obnoxiously bright and the drives run very hot. I wouldn't recommend this for long term use. Also, Once I got an orange blinking light on the 2.5" drive. Nowhere does it state what this means. The computer locked up solid shortly after getting this so I assume it's indicating some sort of error...

Overall Review: a fan would be nice. I noticed someone mentioned there is a place for one. I'll have to look into that

Insanely useful

Pros: -accepts both sizes of sata drives
-dual usb 3.0 ports
-easy install
-aesthetically looks good in a black case
-makes inserting and removing sata drives for a system really easy. great for doing stuff like backups when you don't need to keep the drive permanently installed.

Cons: -the locking mechanism for both drives take a little bit of pressure to close all the way when a drive is being inserted. hardly worth mentioning.
-the LED for when a drive is being used is like a purplish color. Why not red like most other HDD activity lights?

Overall Review: Would probably work fine for all motherboards, but if you need the ability to hotswap (keep computer on and insert/remove drives) then make sure the motherboard supports sata hot plug. I use an MSI x370 Gaming plus mobo that supports this feature.

Easy install

Pros: easy to install, works as expected, looks nice, extra usb 3.0 ports, sata cables included

Cons: not really a con, my fault for assuming this but i thought that both bays would work on one sata cable, they don't you will need 2 sata ports available

Overall Review: make sure you have an empty usb 3.0 header on your motherboard, would buy again but hope i won't have to

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Customer,

We're sorry to hear that you did not get the drive bays to work.

We believe the issue could be that something was not connected correctly, and power is not going through to the drivers. No blue light will turn on if there is no drive activity.

If you would please contact our support team, we would be glad to assist you by emailing support@sybausa.com

Thank you for purchasing one of our products, and for leaving us your valuable feedback.

Works well!

Pros: - Works as advertised
- Hot swap works great
- No ugly logos on bezel
- USB 3.0 ports work no problem

Cons: - mounting rails are a bit flimsy, take care during install
- 2.5 bay latch-release mechanism is a bit hard to release, no biggie though

Overall Review: Gonna get 4 more of these to fill out my tower case because hot swappable drives are all the rage!

Something actually useful to stick in those old 5.25" bays

Pros: Mostly sturdy construction
Silicone bushings work well to isolate vibration.
Only needs a single SATA power connector.

Cons: Bottom of 3.5" bay is completely open so cables stuffed underneath can get in the way of inserting a drive.
LED power/activity indicators are too bright
Power switch is an accident waiting to happen.
Standard USB 3.0 motherboard plug and cable is bulky
Despite lots of metal parts there are some small plastic parts in the mechanism.

Overall Review: This makes much more sense than any external enclosure. I have 3.5" USB 3.0 and eSATA enclosures that I rarely use. How wants all the mess?

SATA bays like this should be a standard feature on PC cases. Unfortunately it is very rare feature. SATA was designed from the beginning to be hot swappable. It makes sense to treat 2.5" and 3.5" drives like media cards.

I added this one to my home server to house the backup drive. It has worked reliably to transfer ~3TB several times already.

There are no locks on the latches on this version. The simple key locks on other variants if this device seem to be a source of failure. The latch catches are plastic on this one.

I could have done without the indicator LEDs or the tiny power switch. I wonder how much power they waste, and the light pollution is awful in a bedroom. The blue=power/magenta=busy color scheme is also odd. I don't see any reason to have a mechanical power switch on this, and this one just looks like a failure waiting to happen.

USB ports always fail!!!

Pros: Ability to use 2.5/3.5 SDD/HDD in one 5.25 cage, front 3.0 USB ports!

Cons: Dim activity lights and small on-off switch for power.

Overall Review: I have purchase two of these and both had the USB ports fail after a period of time. Using a GA990FXA-UD3 and have no issues using the 20pin port for other USB3.0 hardware/ports... Other than that, they worked great and continue to do so.
