LCD trays or NOT for MB452 Platinum

As of right now, MB452 Platinum Edition includes:

- Two Trays (both SATA/IDE, non-LCD)
- One SATA Bracket
- One eSATA Cable
- One MB452 Platinum housing (use for both IDE/SATA tray)
- One AC Power Adapter

I was wondering if general consumer prefer LCD tray? Is it only for IDE or SATA tray only or both IDE and SATA? Please view image for detail LCD display.(Click to enlarge)

MB452 Platinum will be coming out winter, 2006 and it will be in store spring, 2007.

Purchase an extra tray from ICY DOCK that which included protection case for MB559, MB561, MB453, MB454, MB455

Since ICY DOCK is specialize in Internal and External IDE/eSATA/Hot Swap Removal Hard Drive enclosure. I had an idea and I was wondering if ICY DOCK should included a protection tray cover that fit into our MB559 and MB561 ( in White tray), also our other multi-bay such as MB453, 454, 455 (in blue tray) (Please view picture)

This idea came out because I had lots of HDD around my working bench and I have no protection cover on extra trays for my enclosure such as MB453, 454, 455 and MB559/561.

Maybe there is a need for protection cover for all trays for MB559, MB561 and MB453, 454, 455. I wonder what does general consumer thinks about this idea, when purchase an extra tray from ICY DOCK that which included protection cover and what will be the good price point for it. (MSRP 24.99 USD or MSRP 29.99 USD)

Is it a good idea to have build-in Wireless NAS for 3.5 HDD Enclosures?

Now day, NAS (Network-Attached Storage) enclosure is getting popular.

Do you think it would be a good idea for ICY DOCK enclosure to have build-in WIRELESS NAS and do you prefer to have it build-in for multi-bay or single bay enclosure?

Do you perfer with or without buldin fan enclosure?

Does today enclosures consumer market prefer with or without build-in fan? The fan function for enclosure will cool down the device, but the noise level is annoyed at times. If you obtain a enclosure without a build-in fan the consumer might think the HDD is under massive of heat and might damage the date that cause HDD malfunction.

What do you prefer as consumer? Should modern day "ENCLOSURE" have or shouldn’t have building fan?
