2 out of 5 eggs Great build quality except for the Fan Controller 03/14/2016

This review is from: iStarUSA BPU-340SATA-BLACK 3x5.25" to 4x3.5" SAS/SATA 6.0Gb/s Hot-Swap Cage - Black Tray

Pros: Great build quality
Trays are nice and solid
Nice buttons to spin down the drives
Sata 6.0

Cons: TERRIBLE noise from the fan controller. The whining sound from the fan controller makes you want to smash the thing to bits.
No disable feature for the fan
The button to disable the alarm does not work

3 out of 5 eggs Great case, but not a true AV rack 03/14/2016

This review is from: iStarUSA D-3100HB Black Aluminum 3U Rackmount Compact 10x 3.5" Bay Hotswap microATX Chassis

Pros: Great build quality in the case and the trays
Small form factor
Supports standard size power supply

Cons: TERRIBLE NOISE FROM THE FAN CONTROLLER. I hear a terrible whistling/whining sound from the voltage regulator. Turning the fan to run at Full speed when the fan is engaged does not help. Also, they neglected to include a switch to turn off the fan. If you unplug the fan the alarm sound is triggered which is just as bad. The instructions to disable the alarm does absolutely nothing.

Other Thoughts: If you plan on putting this in a rack it in a closet far away from you it'll be great. If you plan on putting it in an AV rack next to you while you work, you will want to smash the case with a hammer.

NORCO RPC-2304 2U Rackmount 2U Short Depth Rackmount Chassis with 4 x Hot Swap Trays Standard ATX power supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Price, form factor, and hot-swap feature.

Cons: The backplane has fried 4 of my hard drives. I moved my system from a 4u case to this and immediately and all 4 of my WD green enterprise drives died. They are out of warranty so now I have to find a different case and new hard drives. If you google reviews of Norco backplanes you'll notice that their quality control on their backplanes is terrible. Also, case has very sharp edges that you'll cut yourself on because you'll have to take the drive bay out to screw in your motherboard.
