Pros
Great cheap solution for adding drives.
Well made
Drives fitted well with included screws. The inside has rails so that each drive is easily matched with screw holes.
Side plates have rubber grommets for vibration control - and the fitted side places mean that this slides into place with no need to alter  side rails of 5 1/4 bays.
The blue LED fan contrasts with the red on my HAF932 box - but it's fine.
Compared to other cheap methods of adding drives or adding cooling to drives, this is a great solution at a great price.
Cons
The fan could be a problem. While the fan in my fitted cage is fine with Toshiba 3T's and WD 2T greens, it probably won't do well with faster drives, especially with RAID where all the drives are spun up most of the time. I'M doing a huge backup and drives are holding at 30'C - whereas same drives in a simple eSata dock were up to 36'C in light use. So the weak fan does work - for me.
Summary
Overall I'm pleased with the two I just bought. The low power fan sucks in air through a grill and so won't need cleaning for years. If a person wants to replace the fan, then first any drives in the cage must be removed. Getting at the 4 screws holding the front plastic facing and grill - is fine with a bent screwdriver, but regular large handled screwdrivers won't have enough clearance. My Leatherman worked fine. The fan is held on with plastic split pins, so more fiddly work to remove those without damage. Clearance is very limited to the fan mounting holes on the other side of sheet metal to fan - sheet metal screws screwed from fan into sheet metal might work, but a nut and bolt solution would probably be best. I'm not sure if plastic split pins are readily available - which would solve everything, but gentle removal will leave the fitted ones OK.
I have fitted a replacement fan in my second cage before adding drives! Overall, though, I still feel that I got a super deal for the price.
The plastic split pins can be removed without damage by pushing the inner pin with a fine screwdriver in the notch from the aluminum frame side. Once the inner pin sticks out on the fan side, remove it and then the outer split pin with fingers and put it somewhere safe. Repeat for other 3. If your case has positive pressure then the weak stock fan won't work well. It may, if turned around to exhaust air. The outer grille, faceplate and inner lint trap mesh are quite a challenge for airflow, so it's worth considering a multi speed fan with higher static pressure - just because those plastic pins might not survive many changes. If CM supplied a few extra plastic pins in the bag of screws, then this cage would be perfect.

Pros
Good price, comes with a blue LED fan.
4 hard drives. One of the better bay converters.
Cons
Using 4 hard drives with the stock fan is not good IMO. You should look into a higher pressure fan, like a GELID or even a 2000rpm CM fan if you want to keep your drive heat down.
Changing fan is a pain in the ***
Summary
I mostly use these to add more fans to a case. Sometimes I take off the front plate if the case has grill 5.25 bays. Sometimes it looks cool with the design on it. The only thing that is not good is the way the fans attach...it is difficult to get off and put back on.

Pros
Easy to install
Blue LED fan
Fits 4 hard drives in one cage!
Cons
Kinda expensive
Summary
I got two of these put in my Cooler Master ATCS 840 case. I hate the fact that cooler master cases have so many 5.25in drive bays. Who needs 6 5.25in drive bays these days? Most people are using 3.5in drive bays. Anyways I don't need any as my case is only going to be used as a server build so these work perfectly fine. No issues with installing them. Recommended.

Pros
- Solid construction
- Rubber mounts to reduce vibration noise from hard drives
- Quiet fan to reduce drive temperature
- Cheapest 4 drive box solution out there
Cons
- None so far!
Summary
I bought this item to add more drives to my unRAID NAS using empty 5.25" vacant slots in my case. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the construction is solid and the installation was a breeze with clear instructions. The included blue led fan is quiet and also helps reduce the hard drive temperature. Unless you need hot-swap capabilities it is a great product.

Pros
- cheapest 4 HDD bay out there w/ a fan
- rubber gromets to reduce vibration
- all aluminum construction
Cons
- fan is the most useless POS I have ever seen. Couldn't blow ash into the wind
Summary
BUY A REPLACEMENT 120mn FAN!!!
The fan is the weak point. So bad that I take two stars off.
For everything else, it does the job to hold your hard drives snug and various hard drive sizes fit.

I replaced the bling POS fan with a scythe 110CFM fan and saw a reduction of 5 degree celcius on each drive and a 1 degree drop  for the CPU.

Pros
Adds hard drive slots.
Really quiet fan.
Cons
One of the blue LED's keeps flickering
Quiet, but weak fan
Summary
Added this in not to get the extra hard drives, but to get the extra airflow for my CPU. Unfortunately, the fan equipped in this thing is incredibly weak, so I'm going to have to get a new case fan for it. Overall though, it does look good in my 690, and it does add four new hard drive slots. Just wish the case fan was good as well.

Pros
Standard sizing - compatible with most cases
All-in-one solution including mounting hardware and near-silent cooling
Cons
Stock fan is blue LED - may not appeal to some
Summary
This is an excellent all-in-one drive bay converter that comes with all the hardware needed for mounting and a blue LED fan to keep the drives cool. I am using this alongside the drive bay converter that came with my Cosmos S to run my file server, which uses 6 drives in RAID5 plus an OS drive. Fan does a good job of keeping the drives cool, even after hours of constant activity during backups. Fan is also reasonably quiet. Build quality is excellent - it can withstand some pretty rough handling, if that's what you're into. Others have had issues installing in slotted drive bays, but the Cosmos S is slotted and I had no such installation problems at all, given that the converter is designed to slide along bay slots. Aesthetically, it fits perfectly with the Cosmos S and looks very much a part of the case and not an after thought. Given the blue LED fan, however, it may not appeal to some. In which case, the fan is easily swapped out for another 120x25 fan of your choosing.

Solid product - happy to recommend and would certainly purchase again should the need arise.

Pros
- nice design
- easier to install than an iCage
- comes with a fan
- came with screws :D
Cons
- you might not like the fan
- changing the fan is hard
Summary
Bought this to put more hard drives in my case. Issue is the change the fan, it doesn't seem you can easier remove it and put it back. As the fan is held by plastic nubs but the nubs are so far in and hard to reach, you can't just push them out.
