Rated 2 out of 5 by suid0 Great product buy buyer beware
This is a great product to turn a 5 1/4 drive bay into a housing for 4x SSD's with the ability to easily switch drives out and not mess around with cables... it'll also save you space on drive power cables as it uses a single cable.
If you have a micro ATX case the poor design of the unit leaves the power socket too close to the edge and is very likely you'll be unable to plug it in because its too close to the motherboard. Also the unit is a VERY tight fit getting into the bay. Personally I had to mount the unit upside down to be able to power it, and as a result can only make use of 3 bays.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Walter Well built and really good
Icy Dock can make some fantastic kit. This is one of them. Well built, well finished, good spec and thoughtfully laid out.
I would guess the fans are at least 30-35db but the off button is ideal if you are running SSD's inside it as they don't need the cooling.
All metal construction helps dissipate heat as well.
All in all comes recommended and looks good once installed.

Used this with a 4 Port Highpoint RocketRAID 640 Lite Internal PCI-e 2.0 x4 to SATA 6Gb/s RAID Controller Card and 4x
2TB Samsung ST2000LM003 Spinpoint M9T 2.5" Hard Drives (SATA III). All three items work in harmony and allow for hot-swap so good for client to take one disk offsite each week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jake555 New X-99 Build
This was an essential part of my new build as I needed to remove all my drive trays and use the 5.25 bays instead. It is of fantastic build quality, however the 2 supplied 80 mm fans were so loud, it was like having a hoover on. Took me a while trying to figure out what was making the noise. It was easy enough to remove them, and I'm not replacing them with anything. Wouldn't normally use fans to cool my ssd's, so don't see the point in doing so here. Other than that it is a great product.
Scans service was excellent as usual
