Great Product - So Handy

I purchased one of these as I tend to have a lot of hard disks that I slot in and out.

Now I can do it without needing to power off my system or open the case.

Great product, I have a stacker case so thinking of purchasing another one..then I can fit 10 hard disks all in the one case.

Great value - Does what it says on the b

Got one of these about 6 months ago and I've been very satisfied with it.

The 5 bays are hotswap and I've tested it in both Linux and Windows Server platforms (Just make sure your SATA/SAS controller supports hotswap and your O/S is aware of this too).

The activity LEDs on each drive work as expected, which is good. There is a green and red light for each drive on the caddy so you can see at a glance which drives are active and busy. Have tested the alarm, its very loud!

I've been using it 24/7 pretty much since I got it and the drives stay cool and have performed well.

THE ONLY ISSUE I had with this unit was that I had 1 500GB samsung drive which absolutely refused to work in it. Swapped it into different bays, swapped caddies, did everything and couldn't work out why it wouldnt work. Eventually I RMA'd the drive to Samsung because I was afraid it was faulty.

Otherwise, this kit is very good and excellent value. Waiting for OCUK to stock more so that I can buy another!

Best bays I have bought

I have moved all of my internal HDDs to this bay now, it's perfect. Activity light on each bay is excellent , it makes it so easy to identify drives and not hotswap the wrong one. Not tested the alarm yet because nothing has gone wrong!
80mm fan does a great job of cooling the drives, even if some of the bays are empty. Easy to install and easy to change drives. Now fitting them to three more work PC's.
