Snap-In SATA Mobile Rack II
The Snap-In SATA Mobile Rack II is our second generation of trayless removable drive system for 3.5" SATA/SAS hard drives. Constructed in precision machined aluminum with an open frame design as well as a new door and eject mechanism, this new Snap-In Mobile Rack is lighter, stronger, more durable and more efficient in heat dissipation.  

The Snap-In SATA Mobile Rack II is designed for convenience and ease of use. Open the drive door, and the hard drive will be automatically ejected for easy removal. Close the drive door till it is latched, and the hard drive will be firmly locked into the bay and powered on automatically. The SATA connection can also be changed to IDE, USB, or SCSI by attaching one of Addonics' IO converters to the SATA connector on the back of this Snap-In Mobile Rack II.
