ICY DOCK MB154SP-B 4 in 3 SATA 6Gbps Hot-Swap Hard Drive Backplane Raid Cage Module
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs reliable hot swap disk enclosure 09/07/2013

This review is from: ICY DOCK MB154SP-B 4 in 3 SATA 6Gbps Hot-Swap Hard Drive Backplane Raid Cage Module

Pros: Disks are easy to install.
Fans have warning led's and beepers if they stop working.

Cons: Did not supply enough screws for all disks, not a major issue since I have screws.

Other Thoughts: I have bought 3 of these over 3+ years and all of them are still working, including the fans on even the oldest one.

You can see improvements over the earliest model I have to the latest model, but even the oldest ones still work good.

1 out of 5 eggs issues with stability under load on linux 06/16/2013

This review is from: SYBA SD-PEX40054 PCI-Express 2.0 x2 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) HyperDuo 4-port RAID Controller Card

Pros: works fast except for some issues under linux.

Cons: On linux under heavy load it can freak out (mdadm raid5/6 builds/checks)...usually if smart commands are being run that makes it rather test suggest putting several disks under heavy load and running constant smartctl commands in linux will cause the controller to freak out and drop *ALL* disks connected to it, it will require a reboot to get things back...if it did not have this issue the controller would be great.

I have disabled smart and it mostly works...but still if the disk has any error the controller has a habit of freaking out and dropping all disks (even without smart commands running). The error that happens with smart appears to be the same error as this.

Seagate SV35.6 Series ST3000VX000 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: At least it failed immediately...

And I at least put it in a test machine to test before putting it on my machine with live data...the way it died it probably would have crashed it by locking up the SATA bush.

Cons: Never even fully spun up...Seatools software short test failed immediately with an error.

Other Thoughts: Never buying Seagate again...there is no way the other HD makers can actually be any worse...I have bought 8 disks (6-1.5TB/2-3TB) from Seagate in the last 3.5 years, 2 were immediate DOA's (and had to be RMA'ed), 4 additional of the 3 year old 6-1.5tb had to be RMA'ed before the 3 year warranty ran out.
