iStarUSA's new BPN-DE product line consists of four different volume sizes ranging from single drive to a large five drive model. The BPN-DE Series has several model numbers because each volume capacity comes in four colors - blue, black, red and silver.


Today we're looking at the BPN-DE230SS, a three bay trayless model with a black finish and machined accents.



Specification, Availability and Pricing




The BPN-DE230SS occupies two 5.25" drive bays, what you might normally associate with optical drives. The system is trayless and holds three SATA or SAS 3.5" HDDs. The specifications state the cooling fan is optional, but our sample from iStarUSA shipped with the fan attached to the system.


The BPN-DE products go beyond most of the trayless system's we're tested. The drive cage has locks on each door and is all aluminum.




After looking around online, we found the model we're looking at today for as low as $62.99.







iStarUSA put together a nice retail package for the BPN-DE Series products. The front of the box covers all of the major details and shows an accurate image of the product inside.




The side of the package states which color is inside the package.




On the back we found more details about the product.




Inside we found a well-packaged unit with dense foam surrounding the drive cage.
