    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Conveniently fits into the PC. Quick access to the hard disk when you need to transfer. Or surgical removal of the hard in an emergency.
    Cons:
    This device is so much like me that I discovered cons. Not a lot was twisted body, but I fixed this for a second. The bundled w...

    Excellent hot-swap tray for drives

    posted by CanadaCG on 12/08/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Easy to inistall. Locking feature is nice to prevent "accidental" opening/removal of drive. Drive slides in and locks into place - secure and simple.
    Cons:

    kinda crappy

    posted by CarlosLint on 10/06/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Works as expected (barely) Now due to sata's connector standardization any sata disk fits perfectly into the slot. It's not a craddle type, you can put the disk directly into the computer.
    Cons:
    Material used is not very reliable. Two disks I've tried on it both were hard-to-impossible to put in (not enough space). Had t...

    Pros:
    I am using this for my do-it-yourself home server. I have twelve disks in here. But when one breaks, I have to open up the whole server, get the drive cage out and replace the defective disk. I figured I could try this solution and I ordered one. Placing it...
