Snap-In Double Drive

Built on the same reliable and convenient removable mechanism of the Snap-In Mobile Rack, the Addonics Snap-In Double Drive now enables 2.5" SATA hard drives to be use like a tape cartridge in any Desktop, rack mount or industrial PC. Designed to fit inside a standard 3.5" drive bay, the Snap-In Double Drive comes with 2 drive slots to accommodates up to two hard drives. By connecting to a hot swappable SATA controller, the hard drive can be easily added or removed from the system just like an ordinary cassette tape.
