Swap IDE hard drives in and out of a server, quickly and safely. This high quality Removable ATA Hard Drive Drawer/Mobile Rack delivers a convenient ATA storage solution, allowing you to quickly swap ATA66/ATA100 and ATA133 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 ATA HDD in the (removable) caddy. Connecting the ATA 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 ATA 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.
The drive caddy features dual ball-bearing fans that help 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 drive drawer features highly durable construction, with a 7K insertion rating and is backed by StarTech.com''s 2 year warranty.
This review is from: StarTech DRW115ATABK ATA133 Drive Drawer with Shock Absorbers
Pros: Easy to use, works as promised. I have a bunch of ata drives that I use for back ups, I used to have to shut the PC down and swap the drives out, which was a real pain and eventually I got lazy and left my case open. Now it's all closed up and quiet again. I bought 2 of these units for both my desktops.
Cons: The software takes some getting used to- follow the instructions and you shouldn't have a problem.
Other Thoughts: Most new mobos only have one ata slot now, this allows you to keep your ata drives and swap them in a few seconds.
