Pros
Price, Easy to get to drives, fit more drives into less space
Cons
Fans are weak, It cools very poorly. I've had replace many hard drives from overheating.
Summary
The price is pretty good for what you get. Easy access to drives. The cooling on this thing really needs to be improved, drives get extremely hot. I've also had to replace one of the fans as they died on me. I've had replace many drives because of this. Thinking of getting a different hot swap for that alone

Pros
Trayless
Activity LEDs
Brilliant concept
Tooless
Cons
Lack of locks
Material is ok
Summary
Put this one in a full tower case. Also brought the single bay KF-1000-BK for an HP case which was a BIG mistake. These are truly convenient and affordable alternatives to have a RAID setup.

Pros
- tray-less
- looks and feels like quality
- drive doors have a metal latch
- good cooling
Cons
I agree with death_hawk's point regarding the awkward power arrangement. This thing should be powered by a single molex connector but, instead, uses an adapter per drive with external jumpers for the power and disk activity indicators. These cables create  a mess and unnecessarily block airflow in the case.

Please note: the item is not as pictured in this listing. The cage does not have the molex power connector. Instead, it has 4 small 4-pin connectors for the drive power and activity indicators. See the BigBruin review for accurate images.

I recommend picking up a 4 way power splitter to take care of the power needs for the entire cage.

Summary
Despite the power cable awkwardness, this is an excellent product. It feels like a quality item and it works like a quality item.

Pros
Simple
Cheap
Effective
Tool-less drives
Cons
No locks
Indicator LEDs require use of special [annoying] cable
Summary
If you need a big solution for your growing hard drive collection, this is it. The space saving and cost/drive factors alone make it worth while.

Functionally, it works as intended.

Pros
-Trayless
-Cheap
Cons
-No locks
-Really retarded LED hookups
Summary
The price of this thing is stellar.
But you do pay in certain areas.

For instance, there are no locks holding the drives in. This isn't a big deal because it's fairly difficult to accidently release a drive. It is still nice to have them though.

The LED hookups are retarded in this. The back of this unit has 4 standard SATA/Power dealies. Normally this is fine. BUT! In order to hook up the LEDs on the front, you have to stick a custom cable in there that splits the SATA, power and status LEDs. Normally this isn't a big deal, but the power connectors are Molex.

You can skip the above step, but you're left without the usage of your LEDs up front.

This unit lost 1 star because of the LED design. Otherwise it'd get a full 5.
