Product ID: HSB225SATBK
The HSB225SATBK 3.5in SATA Mobile Rack lets you install two 2.5in SATA (SATA, SATA II, SATA III-6Gbps) hard drives (HDD) or solid state drives (SSD) into an available/unused 3.5in floppy drive bay.
The mobile rack delivers quick and easy access to hard drive contents, using a convenient "no mounting required/easy eject" feature which eliminates the need for the drives to be installed in a tray - a time-saving solution for instant drive removals and insertions, as part of a system building process or integration into rackmount systems or industrial environments.
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.
For added safety, the mobile rack is made from UL94 V-0 rated plastics and equipped with locking bay doors to help prevent accidental or unauthorized removal of the swappable hard drives. Also a perfect addition for operating system image deployment and any task that requires being able to access large volumes of data on the fly, the hot swap bay provides everything you need to expedite important projects while maintaining a reliable storage solution.

Yes, this mobile rack does support hot-swapping of SATA drives. To use this feature, it is required that the SATA port is set to Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI) mode and hot-swapping is enabled. On most motherboards, this is performed within the Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) or the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI). If you are using a SATA controller card, consult the motherboard manufacturer's technical documentation for the correct steps to accomplish this.
