Pros: Does the job it was designed to do. Not finicky like some of the trayless options. Active cooling with fault detection.
Cons: Trays generally less convenient than newer designs. Trays adequate, but minimally so. Mine did not include baffles (only useful when not fully populated). Poor documentation: no manual available online.
Other Thoughts: I was originally disappointed that the activity LEDs, though operational, appeared to be bussed, i.e. triggered as a set. Hot-swap is of little use if you can't trust that you know which drive to replace in a degraded RAID array! As it turns out, all I really needed to do was to remove a block of jumpers from the back. This probably doesn't affect current revisions: the backplane in the current product photos doesn't match mine. Still, an actual manual would have been quite helpful.
Given the alternatives, I would not buy this again today.
