Pros: - Works beautifully in my Lenovo Yoga 11e, even though Lenovo's specs state it can take a maximum of 8GB.
- Fast
- Works

Cons: - Expen$ive but worth it if you use it

Other Thoughts: I almost have the computer I have always wanted: a fast CPU, 11-inch display with plenty of SSD space (I upgraded from 128GB to 500GB SSD) and 16GB RAM. Now if I could just find an 11-inch'er with a 1920x1080 display that can take 16GB RAM and a 2.5" drive I'd truly have the computer I have always wanted!

1 out of 5 eggs Doesn't Work For Me 05/07/2012

This review is from: Nippon Labs USB3-3MM 3 ft. Blue USB 3.0 A Male to A Male Cable

Pros: Pretty "3.0 Blue" color, works great using USB 2.0. (two-point-oh).

Cons: Doesn't work with USB 3.0 using Nexstar CX external USB 3.0 drive. Drive powers up and the case light turns on, but doesn't make a connection.

Other Thoughts: Doesn't get me anywhere, I have regular USB 2.0 cables that do the exact same thing. Now, should I spend a couple of bucks to send back a $4 cable? Kind of a waste.

StarTech HSB220SAT25B 2 Drive 2.5in Trayless Hot Swap SATA Mobile Rack Backplane

5 out of 5 eggs Very useful, does what you think 07/28/2010

This review is from: StarTech HSB220SAT25B 2 Drive 2.5in Trayless Hot Swap SATA Mobile Rack Backplane

Pros: - Two 2.5" drives fit in a single 3.5" slot; saves case space
- No need for any additional adapters (assuming you have a free 3.5" bay, of course)
- Hot swappable* (see below)

Cons: - Slightly expensive
- No security locking mechanism

Other Thoughts: This dual-tray setup is extremely useful, I use one bay for a boot drive and the second as a removable backup drive. You must make certain your BIOS has been set to AHCI mode for hot-swap support. Otherwise, the computer must be off when you swap. Drives slide in and out easily, there is a latching mechanism on the doors but no locking mechanism. One time (note: ONE time) I accidentally pulled out my system drive and crashed my computer; I'd like to see some way to security or "hard" lock the bays so I'd have to go through an extra step to get the drive(s) out when I wanted, to avoid any accidents. Overall, an extremely useful product, every 2.5" SSD (I have 3 from different manufacturers) and 2.5" hard drive (I have 7 from 4 different manufacturers) all fit perfectly and have worked beautifully. Highly recommended, would like to see a few bucks knocked off but I guess you can divide the price by two and get the amount it costs to manage each drive.
