Whine-Away 1/12/2020 3:23:02 AM

Pros: This is a nice drive bay, both compact and easy to install
Super convenient to be able to mount and dismount drives without opening your case.

Cons: You may have a semi-loud whine when the PC is powered on.
*see 'overall review' for fix

Overall Review: The noise is coming from the units pre-installed cooling fan.
I assumed the fan had a defective bearing, and intended to replace it.
What I discovered after removing the two mounting screws was a plastic 'web' between the fan and the chassis.
I assumed it was for structural support to stiffen the fan mount location.
However this 'web' was so close to the fan blade, when assembled, it actually caused a vacuum dam at the hub of the fan and caused a higher load on the fan motor as well as restricting air flow (therefore causing the whine).
NOTE: the following instruction will likely void the manufacturer warranty on this item.
My solution was to carefully remove the web by trimming each of the 6 legs at the outside of the web.
I then mounted the fan with the 2 screws and turned my system back on.
Beautiful silence.
Also, if you feel the airflow before and after this modification, you will notice a 50% increase in volume.

Poor construction 9/21/2018 10:36:51 AM

Pros: The drive bay works as it is supposed to, and the hot swap feature works well.

Cons: The drive locking mechanism (silver tabs on the front face) is made of plastic. The first time we unlocked the 2.5" drive door, the silver plastic tab, which comes out with your finger, broke at the support pivot point of the silver unlocking tab. The drive still works, but it is difficult to get it to lock in place.

great aluminum well made tool-less swap 2/12/2018 11:25:15 AM

Pros: sturdy and perfectly aligned with open front for a perfect cooling. not too loud but they could have a hydro dynamic bearing since they are charging this high price.

Cons: can be cheaper.

Overall Review: I bought several of these and are serving w/o any issue. I added this review when I saw the 1 egg review of a customer! be assured it is a good well made tool-less swap that can keep your drives cool.

Gets too hot for my tastes 12/28/2017 5:08:05 AM

Pros: The unit functions as advertised, but...

Cons: When I pulled any of the hdd's out, they were so hot I couldn't hold them.

Overall Review: Ended up purchasing the Rosewill brand that had a 120mm fan. No problems there.

Worthless Product DO NOT BUY 5/2/2017 12:59:51 PM

Pros: Mounted properly

Cons: The power and SATA connections on these are trash. The plastic tabs pulled out on 3 of the SATA connections and 1 of the power connectors between the 8 ports of each on the two that I purchased. I applied normal force and the tabs pulled out still inside the consider leaving only the pins behind.
