Thus HDDs get a noble aluminum housing with steel base, which however not only convinces through optics and haptics. Also the drive change is very easy. For this, the front panel is simply flipped open and the slots are fitted with the appropriate plates in a hot-swap style. The slots are horizontally installed, including a control panel with four buttons and a display. The hard disks can even be operated in different RAID modes, in order to increase the speed or the data security.
Active components are cooled by two slow rotating 60mm fans. The connection to the PC is ensured by a modern and fast USB 3.0 interface, but the external housing can also be connected via eSATA. The power supply is independent of this with a supplied power supply.
