EZ Swap Rocks!

Pros: Beautiful blue display blends in perfectly with my Superalien gaming case. Drives slide out fairly easily. LED Temperature indicators are helpful and accurate.

Cons: Better have the key close by when you do a hot swap. You will not be able to swap a raid drive without a key. Handles are made of cheap plastic. It wouldn't cost too much more to manufacture them with a more durable material.

Works like a Champ!

Pros: I built a D2D2D backup solution for my work using these for off-site storage. Daily sleds are swapped out and previous day's taken off site. I bought about 10 of them and even after daily use, non of them has broken a latch or any problems what so ever.
Just take care with them and they will keep on working.

Cons: None!

Great Product!

Pros: Great HD swap case, easy swap with no problems, it reads HD temperature and keep inside cool.

Cons: Like other reviewers said, the latch feels kind of fragile, I handle mine with extra care.

hd screw alignment

Pros: full featured, looks good

Cons: attention to detail (see other thoughts), latch feels cheesy but i've gotten used to it

Other Thoughts: i bought this with a Hard drive rack Kit (Item#: N82E16817122105). on each cartridge there are two screws that attach a beige 64 pin rack interface. on each there is one screw protruding thru far enough to prevent the drive from seating all the way against the sata interface. the interface makes good contact and the screw holes on the bottom line up "good enough" with the drive but if you want it to be "right" just take the screw out and make it shorter with some dykes. you'll be glad you did

Vantec RULES!!!

Pros: I have owned this product for a Year before I left feedback because of the remarks being left that this drive bay is flimsy and breaking easily and I have come to the conclusion that some people need to take better care of their investments.
I have had NO problems what so ever. I own 2 and I am buying a 3rd today.

Cons: NONE!!!

Other Thoughts: People who are disappointed that these do not run 300mb/s.
It doesn't matter unless you are running atleast 4 drives in some RAID formation or another other wise you will never even reach a drives capabilities of 300 mb/s in the 1st place.
Seak TIme, Latency RPM'S are all that you should be concerned about if you are running less than 3 drives in RAID,and make sure to buy the same make and models.

Absolutely Wonderful!

Pros: IMPORTANT! - NewEgg specs incorrect (NOT their fault), According to Vantec, this device supports SATA II 300mb/s. I called Vantec asking about it, since I prefer this model over their others, and the Vantec website indicates on the features page that Sata II is supported, and on the specs page that Sata I only is supported. Vantec told me on the phone that Sata II is definitely supported for a full 300mb/s with drives up to 750GB, and that the confusion came from the fact that the ORIGINAL planned specs were for SATA I, which they changed just prior to release and upgraded them, so some docs still indicate SATA I and some now indicate SATA II, but SATA II is in fact supported. I've actually owned the IDE version of this device for well over a year. I'm about to purchase a couple of this model for a new build. Based on my experience with it's sister product (the IDE version) they are very solid, keep drives nice and cool, and give you an accurate temp reading in your choice of F or C.

Cons: I prefer the green color LCD of the IDE version to the blue color of the LCD for the SATA version.

Other Thoughts: I've read some other reviews here on NewEgg for this device that complain about the so-called "flimsy" latch/handle on the front. That's rubbish. It's true that the latch is plastic, but consider what it was designed for. It was NOT designed for prying or carrying. It's JUST a latch to release the door lever. It's only job is to release a little catch that holds the door lever closed. The entire front, including the LCD, is a door lever, and that's VERY SOLID. You have to pull the door level open full wide in order to slide out the device from a PC. I've taken drives in the caddies for these things on many trips. THEY LAST. They're perfect, I love 'em.

4/ 5

Pros: Great hot swap cartridge for its price. semi-smooth in and out with a click in confirmation.

Cons: I had a latch break on me. Needs to be handled with out force.

Other Thoughts: company website advertizes in features as Transfer rate up to 3Gbps or 300MB/S but when I received the unit it stated as 150mb/S. Went back to their website and "Specifications" tab states Data Transfer Rate: 150MB/s. Oops!

Best Removable Drive On the Market

Pros: The Drive is simple to install and works great for Studio Recording and quick storage.
I use one for the Internet and several others to do Music Recording and Photoshop work station .
I have never ONCE lost anything or had ANY problems with the computer crashing or having to flash the BIOS.
Everything works seemlessly including my Western Digital RAPTOR,the speeds are the same as they are installed directly to the M.T.B. .
Further more if you pull the plastic latch hard it will beak but why make that type of investment and abuse the latch then complain??? My latches have a years worth of use and NOT one has broken.

Cons: ABSOLUTELY NONE!!!

Other Thoughts: I WOULD INVEST IN SEVERAL OF THESE IF YOU ARE LIKE ME AND WANT TO RUN SEVERAL APPLICATIONS THAT TAKE UP ALOT OF YOUR SYSTEM MEMORY.
MY COMPUTER WORKS WITH NO DELAYS BECAUSE I HAVE ONLY WHAT I NEED ON MY SYSTEM AND NOTHING ELSE,I USE A EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE TO STORE ALL OF MY FILES AND I SWAP OUT EVEYTHING WITH THE EZ-SWAP.
