Rated 5 out of 5 by Cardare If you are after a high-quality 4-bay storage cage, this is it.
I bought this with the Icy Dock MB994IPO-3SB (Two-drive + Slim-ODD bay) and as I mentioned on my review of that product, the price is a little on the high side, but you do get a high-quality product if space-optimization is your thing.
Similarly, this is the SATA/SAS unit, and if like me you only want to use SATA drives with this, just plug the SATA cables in to the "PRI" socket, leaving the "2ND" socket empty. If you later have a need for SAS, provided you have the SAS drives and a SAS controller, there is nothing stopping you from swapping SATA drives for SAS drives, and connecting up your SAS controller.
It comes with 16 screws for the drives, and screws for mounting in your case. I should note that my Corsair Carbide Air 540 has a screw-less quick-release mechanism, and can confirm that the 540's quick-release does not cause any problems with the insertion or removal of the drive trays. I can't say the same for any other type of case mind. If you don't have quick-release (or your quick release causes problems with drive-tray removal or insertion) only use the screws that come with the cage: using others might be too long and stop you from easily removing the drive trays.
It is a little on the expensive side, but you are paying for a high quality cage that will function well in to the future for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by basil build quality good
The frames are of good quality. The screw holes seem to be exact as there were no difficulties slotting the (mounted) drives into the built-in SATA sockets. All the screws you need are provided - no hassle to get everything assembled.
The fans are noisy (seem to be noisier than the CPU fan itself).
