Here we get our first look at the iStarUSA BPN-DE230SS. The front face is all aluminum with black anodized doors and silver accents from the machining process.




Each of the three doors lock and each also has a LED to show drive activity. Another LED shows the system power status.




The specs sheet shows compatibility with SAS drives, but the connectors are missing the pins for wide port.




iStarUSA machined a recess for computer cases that have tabs between 5.25" drive slots.




The BPN-DE230SS shipped with an 80mm fan that keeps the HDDs cool.




Here we see the connectors for power and data. There are two SATA power connectors and three SATA/SAS data connectors. Two switches control the fan speed (low or high) and the front HDD LEDs.




The accessory package includes a paper manual, keys for the locking doors and three SATA cables.
