Excellent expansion capabilities, solid construction

Pros: Four 2.5 inch drives, supporting thicker and thinner variants. Simplified power with one molex for the whole array. My mobo supports hot swap so this works well. Mostly aluminum construction.

Cons: Carrier is a little on the thick side...I had a tight fit into the bay of case when my LG DVDRW fit perfectly. It appears to be partially due to two screws on the case. It fit, though, without any mods.

Does not come with fans built in.

Other Thoughts: The blue/purple lights do not bother me. Handy switch in the back of the enclosure to turn the lights on/off. Each drive has to be attached with screws into the carrier. With SSD drives enclosure fans are likely unnecessary.

Perfect Hotswap cage for 4 SSD

Pros: Simple install into Antec p180 case. less than 10 minutes for 4 drives. Vertex 4 slide right in and the supplied screws attached the drive right to the drive caddy.

Cons: none really besides the plastic handles but everything else is aluminium and really well built.

Other Thoughts: No fans in the cheaper model. And now for 100.00 you can get a 6 drive hotswap in 1, 5.25 slot.

Next time

Looks VERY nice, works well

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

Flimsy

Comments: 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.

Nice

Comments: This is a solid backplane. I have 4 60 gig ssd drives in this back plane.
I am running one system drive and one Raid 0 drive with the remaining three bays. Does what its supposed to do built well, what else do you need.

Nice enclosure... but

Pros: Fairly sturdy construction, (mostly aluminum), holds 4 2.5" ssd's in 1 5.25 slot. Stable with no glitches or failures in the time that I have owned it.

Cons: Price (not so if it was fully functional). The hdd led's stay on steady on mine no matter which way the switch is. Not really to worried about the led's though but I do expect them to work. Did not come with fans, but had spots for 2 fans, I expected fans to be installed.

Good for storage

Pros: Price, Fairly sturdy construction, (mostly aluminum), holds 4 2.5" ssd's in 1 5.25 slot. 4 adapters would cost this much and would take up at least 2- 3.5 inch hdd spots in the case. I would not attempt to hot swap as I am using on-board raid.

Cons: The hdd led's stay on steady on mine no matter which way the switch is. I emailed support about this but they haven't responded in over 2 months. Not really to worried about the led's though.

Other Thoughts: The depth of this unit is aprox 6.75" ( same as a short cd rom). Mine did not come with fans, but had spots for 2 fans.
There is enough air flow with a decent exhaust fan to keep most drive cool anyway.

Get the SATSASBAY425

Pros: Rigid frame and solid construction.
Nice Aesthetic
LED Toggle switch in back
Single power plug for 4 drives.
Supplied with SATA cables and plenty of screws.

Cons: Hot Swap bays will require some removal of top plate for drives taller than ~9.5mm.
No cooling fans in the back
LED toggle switch is a little hard to reach as it will align near the motherboard. Likewise with power plugs.

Other Thoughts: My main concern here is that there are two companies selling the same product. StarTech with the SATSASBAY425 and SunnyTech with the SNT-SS425. The products are identical except that StarTech's drives come with two cooling fans while SNT's have holes where the fans would go.
