Diamond Mobile Rack

The Diamond Mobile Rack (MR) is designed to enable any SATA or IDE hard drive to be use as a removable hard drive via a Diamond IDE drive cradle installed inside the standard 5 1/4" drive bay of a computer. Constructed in heavy gauge aluminum with precision finish for smooth operation, the Diamond MR is built to last while at the same time providing excellent heat dissipation for the hard drive.

With size slightly larger than a VCR cassette, the Diamond drive enclosure comes with both eSATA and SATA connector. The eSATA connector allows the Diamond drive enclosure to be used as an external eSATA hard drive using a standard eSATA cable and an optional power adapter. The Diamond drive enclosure can also be attached to the USB port of any computer with an optional USB - eSATA adapter.

The Diamond drive enclosure comes with built-in eSATA port that allows the SATA or IDE hard drive to be used as an external eSATA hard drive by connecting with an optional eSATA cable and external power adapter. The SATA direct bridge inside the drive enclosure also isolates the SATA hard drive power and data connectors from the wears and tears incurred in some of the removable SATA or IDE hard drive system. 2.5" SATA or IDE hard drive can also be installed into the Diamond drive enclosure.
