Rated 2 out of 5 by Morris Perhaps faulty as very noisy
If you like your machines to be silent, and like myself, immediately start investigating even the slightest rattle, this caddy will drive you bananas.
I've had a veritable orchestra of rattles, hums and whirrs out of this thing and no matter how I adjust its position, it just won't shut up. I could deal with the fan noise alone, but it seems to spread and amplify, resulting in the complete assembly vibrating and rattling (the drive itself is nigh-on silent).
I've always bought Icy Dock up until this point, but thought I'd give the competition a chance. In comparison, I've found the Icy Box somewhat flimsy and clumsy in its design (the handle doesn't always close/engage properly either as the plastic cradle has burrs and is mis-shapen).
In a nutshell, I'd recommend paying the extra tenner and skipping the sub-20 quid models.
I can't see how this product earned the 3XS-approved status, yet I'm sure those folks know their onions, so perhaps my item is indeed faulty.
