  • MacMall Part #: 7235816 
  • Manufacturer Part #: HSB430SATBK 
  • UPC: 743199100792 
  • Platform: Universal 

Swap between hard drives in seconds, with the tray-less convenience of the HSB430SATBK. Supporting the latest generation of hard drive storage up to Terabyte (1TB) SATA hard drives, it houses up to four 3.5" SATA (150)/SATA II (300) hard drives. This innovative hot swap bay requires only three 5.25" bays, maximizing space-efficiency within the host computer. Unlike other enclosures, the HSB430SATBK doesnt require that the drives be mounted to an internal tray – saving users the time it would normally take to mount the drives for deployment or unfasten for replacement.

Using Terabyte hard drives? Dont expose your Hard Drive and valuable data to unnecessary heat!

The HSB430SATBK has two built-in 40mm fans that re-distribute the heat build-up generated as a result of typical drive operation. This feature is especially important for larger volume storage (750GB, 1TB hard drives), and faster "spinning" drives (i.e 7200 RPM), as it can help optimize drive operability and in turn preserve stored data integrity.
