This high quality Removable SATA Hard Drive Drawer/Mobile Rack delivers a convenient SATA hot-swap solution, allowing you to quickly swap Serial ATA hard drives in and out of a computer without having to open the computer case.
Simply install the (included) drive bay into a 5.25in drive bay on the host computer, then mount a 3.5in SATA HDD in the (removable) caddy. Connecting the SATA hard drive to the computer is as easy as inserting the caddy into the drive bay, which can be locked to prevent unauthorized removal of the installed SATA drive.
To maximize performance and utilize the full speed potential of your SATA III hard drives, this HDD Backplane supports SATA III for transfer speeds up to 6 Gbps when paired with a compatible controller.
A suitable solution for large volume drives, the HDD drawer supports SATA, SATA II, and SATA III-6Gbps hard drives allowing you to swap in large amounts of data in a matter of seconds. The mobile rack/backplane is fully compatible with RAID installations to ensure maximum performance and versatility for enhanced storage applications.
The drive caddy features a rear panel ball bearing fan that helps keep the enclosed drive cool, in turn helping to optimize operation while preserving drive lifespan. To prevent damage to the hard drive(s) while being transferred in and out of the computer, the drive caddy features shock absorbers and rubber cushioning that help limit vibration/shock to the drive. This mobile rack is also compatible with DRW113-series SATA hard drive caddies.
A dependable, long-lasting storage solution, the drive drawer features highly durable construction, with a 3K insertion rating and is backed by StarTech.com's 2-year warranty.

Nice product - allows rapid changeout of drives
This is a nice product. It required significant mods to my case (hacksaw) in order to fit - my case is a consumer grade desktop. Once modified it mechanically works fine. I was surprised that the power connector is a 4 pin Molex so an adapter cable is required (another order). I also purchased a second tray and the disk swap all works as expected. Happy with the result.
