I bought this expecting something flimsy for the cheapest price that I could find. The pictures on the website seemed to confirm my worst fears, but I bought it anyway.

I was VERY happily surprised when they arrived and the construction was quite good. The SATA port on the back s just a passthrough, so no raid options in this board, but SATA is hotswappable by default (if enabled in the motherboard, so thats their main purpose).

No dust filter on the grill at front, so you'd need to attach your own if you want one... and no space for fans so you'll be cooling it with internal CPU fan, most likely.

If you want a VERY basic unit to just add an easy hotswap drive though, this is perfect... just make sure to enable hotswap in your bios to avoid lost data ;)

Given it 5 stars because it works, something like this either works or it doesn't. No resistance from the sata/power connectors, slotting in or taking out

Quick release functionality of hard drive
Could be made more secure especially with screw less 5.5 inch quick release bays
