    StarTech HSB100SATBK reviews

    5.25" Trayless Hot-Swap Mobile Rack for 3.5" HDD is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for hot swapping 3.5 hard drives Kind of flimsy design, but works. Doesn't have many mounting options for ease of installation, took some time to get it securely mounted in a bay. Otherwise once installed, these work fine, just be sure to set BIOS to hot swap on the connected SATA ports if you plan to hot swap while machine is running. These also work great on Hackintosh system and can eject drives in OS X.
