Pros
Great drive bay adapter, works great looks good, great for ssd's
Cons
SAS is kinda useless to me, thats about it
Summary
i purchased this for 4 ssd's that i put in to my computer, 2 per windows install and it works great and looks good doing it. I am using 2 vertex 2's and 2 force series ssds and i havent had a problem. the 2 fans in the back have no speed control on the one that was shipped to me, but there not that loud anyway. this thing is fgreat for ssd storage i really like the taking one 5.25 bay and turning it in to a 4x2.5 bay thats just great.

Pros
1x5 inch slot hold 4x2.5 inch hot swap disk tray. Individual activity LED for each disk.
Cons
Fans are bit noisy. No fan speed control. Fans are not fastened by screws. No lockable switch for disk tray. Will void the warranty if swap out a better or quiet fans. Also may have difficult to fasten fans as there are no screws to hold them (looks like there are only 2 plastic sticks for fan insertion).
Summary
Good solid build but lack of some features incorporated in different model.
This model do not have lockable switch for disk tray and fan speed control. Disk tray lock mechanism can be better.

Please see the details of this model here:

Pros
Chassis and trays all metal except front and locking mechanism. Very attractive black finish.
Well vented. SATA connection and tray alignment appears to be solid. Fits 12.5mm drives.
Cons
Outer dimensions of 5.25" bay makes for a very tight installation that may scratch unit or require creative measures to completely install.
This model does not support a fan speed switch; 40mm 12V fans are loud as expected, though may be removed/replaced.
Summary
The model that I purchased was the newer design -A model, but my unit still had the dual SATA/SAS port connections (note: it was not purchased at NCIX). I am using it with consumer SATA drives and have not tested it with SAS.

I expect that it will be a good idea to operate the plastic locking mechanisms gently, but they work well enough and the trays install firmly with a solid connection to the backplane. Having a single LP4 molex power connector helps simplify the cabling.

The chassis is black-painted aluminum and quite attractive, though installing it may result in scraping of this surface. Fitting this into a 5.25" bay can be very tight.

The trays are 1mm steel and unlike the prior model include a removable top cover (from pictures, the prior model appears to have no cover). Regular 9.5mm drives may be installed without removing this top cover at all (slide in easily from the side). Four screws are used to mount each drive to the tray from the bottom.

The trays will accommodate 12.5mm-height drives (e.g. the WD10TPVT), though you will have to remove the top cover to do so, as they won't quite fit around the top edges of the drive. The cover isn't required and does not affect the insertion of the trays (I believe that the prior model had no cover piece).

The unit comes with two 12V two-pin 40x40x20mm fans that are reasonably loud. There is no fan speed switch on this newer model, but minor disassembly will allow you to replace (or remove) the fans. Both the chassis and trays are well vented.

The blue LEDs for each drive do display activity.

Pros
Hot swap, easy install, solid metal housing - well built
Cons
Changing fan speed from low to high a bit difficult once installed. Must secure from one side only otherwise the draws is difficult to insert/remove
Summary
Love these so much I bought 2. One for a RAID setup and the other for storage such as OS backup, photos, music, movies.
Easy to install and lockable draws if using RAID setup

Pros
Awesome SSD storage
Cons
Slightly delicate cages still but an improvement on the joke locking system of the previous version. Noisy fans (see tip).
Summary
Tip:

If you are running SSD's in this you can silence the fans by removing the fan control jumper

Pros
-Holds 4 SSD's nicely
-2 Cooling fan's
-Fit's nicely in 1 5.25" Bay
Cons
The 2 fan's are quite noisy, alittle annoying but oh well. But the nice thing from what I can see is, you can swap out the fans easily or just take them out!
Summary
In short it works very nicely, the blue led's for the hard drive activity light match very nicely with my fan controller, Blu-ray burner, and Case light. The best part is fits nicely in 1 drive bay and holds 4 SSD's. Also, provides cooling
