I really like this hot-swap dock for its compact solution. It allows you to add up to 6 2.5 inch SATA SSDs or HDDs in a single 5.25 inch bay. This works great for servers to allow you to add a lot of drives or in a content creation desktop where you need a lot of fast storage (when using SSDs) but may not have a lot of space. It supports all types of 2.5 inch drives up to 9.5mm thick.
- Fits 6 x 7mm to 9.5mm 2.5" SATA hard drives or SSD's in a single 5.25" bay for high performance RAID applications.
- Full Metal construction with aluminum body, to protect your drives.
- Anti-Vibration Technology (AVT) - creates a safe environment for hard drives or SSDs.
- Active Power Technology (APT) - individual led & cooling fan only powers up if there is a drive installed in the bay.
- 3-Mode Fan Speed Control - adjust cooling settings (High, Low, or Off) for your specific needs.
- Eagle-hook lock system keeps drives secured within the enclosure.
- Switch between 4-pin and 15-pin power connection with included adapter.
- Removable tray system for easy maintenance.
- Supports SATA 6Gbps and hot swap.
High Capacity RAID Storage in Limited Space
Utilizing the standard 5.25" bay form factor, the compact design allows the enclosure to be used in various applications, catering to a wide audience. The MB996SP-6SB excels for use in advanced RAID applications such as building dual RAID 5 arrays or high performance 4 drives in RAID 0 plus RAID 1 array for back up, all in a single 5.25" device bay. The MB996SP-6SB is extremely useful for powerful small servers, gaming rigs, home servers or HTPC's due to its high capacity and space saving design. It is also perfect for users who needs non-RAID JBOD storage and save different contents in different drive locations. It supports wide-range of applications which is the true value of the MB996SP-6SB.
Rock Solid Construction
Making sure your drives or expensive SSDs are in good hands and last as much as possible is carefully considered to any build and design. The MB996SP-6SB is capable of holding up in the various environments, with the heavy duty full metal construction in the entirety of the body and its smaller components.
The metal material used grants heat dissipation transfer from the hard drives to the backplane cage. Lastly, Anti-Vibration Technology (AVT) and EMI grounding are used to ensure a stable environment for the hard drives or SSD's used, dramatically improving reliability.
Absolute Control of your 2.5" hard drive or SSD
Bringing more utility your hard drives or SSDs, LED's are installed into the front of the mobile rack to provide individual drive status information at all times. Active Power Technology (APT) allows each LED and the cooling fan to be active only when a hard drive is inserted into the same bay of the enclosure.
A 40mm cooling fan is placed directly at the center of the rear panel, providing equivalent airflow throughout the entire cage. Depending on your needs, you may need the fan to be at a higher speed, or completely off for silent operation, and so a 3-Mode Fan Speed Control has been added to flexible in various situations.
Using the EZ Slide Micro trays makes drive interchangeability and maintenance completely hassle free. For drive security, the Eagle-hook lock system on the tray makes sure your hard drives will not eject when not needed. The trays are also designed to accommodate 7mm to 9.5mm height hard drive and SSD, creating a 2.5" hot swap bay for any standard SATA hard drives and SSDs.
