  1. Trays shud be a little more rugged due to tighter tolerances
  2. Are there any other pro/cons?

    The only concern I have is, if the HD is going to be inserted and removed constantly, I would prefer a tray with its own heavy duty matting connector and not rely on the HD's own Sata connector.

    But if fairly static, I personally would prefer a tray-less, simpler, as long as there is a proper lever to remove the drive without any tools.
