A great case for extending via SFF-8088 to Adaptec card; effective fan and nice design. Note that this case does not have the same drive mounting than the 8 drive version of the same case - a little annoyance...

4.0 out of 5 stars Good unit 23 Aug. 2013
By M. Burke - Published on Amazon.com

Pros:

* Great value, supports 6G
* Doesn't look bad
* Reasonable cooling/airflow
* Comes with 8088 SAS cable
* With a bit of care, you can hot swap the drives

Cons:

* Changing drives is a little work, but totally doable. The inconvenience of the low-tech "tray" approach is overblown.
* A slightly longer cable woulda been nice

Other thoughts:

The cons are very minor. This is a budget box, and the bang for buck is very high; it does all the basic functions well.

UPDATE: The fan in there is adequate, but not fantastic. My consumer drives are running around 50C while the enterprise drives around 44C doing heavy activity with about 30C ambient temps. It feels they made the fan quiet instead of super high flow. I feel this was the right choice.

Definitely consider enterprise quality drives, even when stacked right next to the much warmer consumer drives they run a lot cooler.

5.0 out of 5 stars I was very pleased at the ease by which It recognized the drives 20 Feb. 2015

I bought this based on price and that it was able to accept both SAS and SATA drives. In my case I had some SATA drives that I wanted to make available to my HyperV 2012 R2 server over a 6GB mini SAS connection to my Dell C6105 server. I was very pleased at the ease by which It recognized the drives. I set mine up as a JBOD and have both SSD and HD drives in the unit.

After a long search for a box like this, I am finally happy to order this RAID Expander.
The device is quiet and the hard discs are staying cool.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps the best solution for such a price. 18 Jan. 2014

I'm using it with my HP Microserver Gen8 & SmartArray P222. No problems detected :)
Little uncomfortable installing drives, but if they do not need to shoot often, this does not prevent.
