This Removable SATA Hard Drive Drawer offers a professional-grade SATA hot-swap solution, letting you swap SATA hard drives in and out of a computer without opening the computer case. Simply install the (included) drive bay into a 5.25 drive bay on the host computer and mount a 3.5 SATA HDD in the caddy. Connecting the SATA hard drive to the computer is as easy as inserting the caddy into the bay, which can be locked to prevent removal of the installed drive. The HDD drawer supports (SATA I/SATA II) hard drives up to 2TB, letting you swap in large amounts of data in a matter of seconds. The caddy features two front panel ball-bearing fans to help keep the enclosed drive cool, and to prevent damage to the hard drive(s) the caddy features shock absorbers and rubber cushioning to limit vibration/shock to the drive. The highly durable drive drawer features aluminum construction, with a 25K insertion rating and is backed by StarTech.coms 1 year warranty.

    I have used removable drive drawers for several years - beginning back with SCSI drives years ago. Am now migrating from SCSI to SATA - large drives much more reasonably priced - and this SATA drive drawer is the best that I can find. Well made and easy to work with, I use it on 2 machines and will use it on all machines that I put together from now on.

    I bought 2 of these "removable hard drive drawer/caddy units" and don t have any problems. They re built well and are solid. At the same time, I bought the Win-7 64 bit OS and 2 new Western Digital Hard Drives (WD1002FAEX Caviar Black, 1 TB, SATA-3, 7200rpm, 64MB). I m using a "RAID 1" configuration and have 4 GB of computer RAM installed. Everything is about 25% faster (presumably due to the new Win-7 64 bit OS and/or the new WD Hard Drives) and no problems so far.

    My internet speed is unchanged. My connection is with Time Warner Los Angeles. I get 15 to 30 Mbps downloads, 1 Mbps uploads, and a 10 to 15 ms ping rate tested with "speedtest". I use Firefox and Internet Explorer web browsers. Watching HD streaming videos on "ABC" works great.

    "RAID 1" is when a computer uses 2 hard drives known as mirroring. Basically, both drives act as backups to each other in real time. If one completely fails, the other keeps your system running. Eventually (however long you want to chance running without a mirror backup) you replace the bad hard drive and the system automatically rebuilds the data to the new hard drive. Using a "RAID 1" configuration somewhat sacrifices high data access rates.

    Paid $38.24 each and $3.72 tax each. Shipping was free. Purchased on 04-28-2010 from seller "Buy.Com".
