(4 stars) Drive lite Connection

By: R2D2
The product is as defined, it works great with any of the various brands of SATA HDD's. I have it installed in an older HP 6000 Pro Core 2 Duo, E7600, however I can not determine where to connect the Tray lite. Unfortunately, the bezel lite on the case is module that does not match the tray cable.

(5 stars) Great product

By: Mikie
I have been using this rack for well over a year and it has worked great for me. Easy to install and use, I have built computers and RAID for a few years now and I have 2 of these and plan on getting more. I am a electrical contractor and I do not give high praise alot but I do on this one. If you have any trouble with this I would say check other components first. I use a lot of startech products and I have No problem with any.

(1 star) Works fine for few weeks...

By: mekkano
This is very low quality product, I bought 4 units, two simply stop working and the other two work erratically. And it seems these are damaging the harddisks

This is a comment for mekkano. There is no way these units can damage an hdd or ssd, except maybe an exterior hdd scratch or scuff. The connection do not use pcb and are simply like using sata cable extensions. Now if they stopped working or working erratically that would be very odd. And if that is true i would guess cheap sata cables are the cause. Its easy to check for a tech or people who have a multi-meter with continuity check. Disconnect the rack and touch meter to each side of the sata connectors and pins. Check for shorts between pins, check for no continuity between front and rear pins and most of all look at pins to see if they are damaged. Then if all else seems fine then try new sata cables and not cheapo's from some sites. you do get what you pay for and some sata cables use really small wire guage in the cables. so buy decent cables. And do not test like I said until unit is disconnected from computer and drive. And if the units are faulty contact support and see what they suggest. Hope this helps you and others

(5 stars) Great Item ! Fast delivery

As a reseller, I am concerned mainly by two things, the first is to receive a good quality items corresponding exactly to the description and the second to receive them fast !

(4 stars) Can't be beat!

By: Limey
Just installed and using it in minutes. It's standard StarTech construction, which is better than most generic equipment but down a grade from a factory HP or Dell item. Only beef is that the insertion rating is listed at 50,000 on the website but only 10,000 in the manual. At one insertion per week that's a difference of 700 years, I'm not happy!
