This high quality SATA/SAS Removable Hard Drive Mobile Rack delivers a convenient Serial Attached SCSI or SATA storage option, allowing you to quickly swap SAS/SATA hard drives in and out of a computer without having to open the computer case - an ideal solution for RAID implementations, multi-boot OS configurations, and high-speed, high capacity backups in mission critical PCs or servers.

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.

Simply install the (included) drive bay into a 5.25in drive bay on the host computer, then mount a 3.5in SAS or SATA HDD in the (removable) caddy. Connecting the hard drive to the computer is as easy as inserting the caddy (with drive attached) into the drive bay, which can be locked to prevent unauthorized removal of the installed drive.

A practical, time-saving storage solution, the drive drawer/mobile rack features front panel LED indicators that continuously display the operating status of the installed drive. With support for SAS/SATA HDD speeds up to 6.0 Gbps, 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 built-in 40mm fan (with adjustable speeds) that helps to 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.

A dependable, long-lasting storage solution, the SAS/SATA drive drawer features highly durable construction, with a 25K insertion rating and is backed by StarTech.com's 2-year warranty.
