A Handy Use Of Spare Space

Would recommend - yes

This 5.25" to 4x 2.5" bay adapter is excellent for adding up to four extra drives to otherwise unused space in the PC. The entire construction is of sturdy metal with a nice brushed finish. All mounting screws were present, as well as four spare drive mounting screws, which is handy. The drive caddies are all metal & are lockable to prevent accidental drive removal. Each caddy indicates drive use/access as well as SMART or fan errors. A blue indication is normal/good, purple flashes indicate drive activity, and solid red indicates SMART errors. If there is a malfunction with the fans, then all four indicators flash red together. The LEDs which provide these indications are mounted to the drive connector backplane, with clear plastic light-guides passing that light to the front. The 2x 40mm fans are reasonably quiet, but they do have noticeable noise and you wouldn't want to have the PC near you in a quiet environment. The fans are unable to be turned off or unplugged, as this throws the fan warning indication. This comes with no SATA power or data cables, so ensure you have those handy before installation. Rated four stars, as it's a really nice unit, but would be great to be able to switch the fans on/off manually, since drive temps aren't requiring extra airflow anyway.
