STARDOM PD520-S3 overview

  • 1Description

Designed for professional image processing workstations with spare 5.25" bays, the PD520-S3 Pro Drive 5.25" Enclosure for 2.5/3.5" Drives from Stardom is a 5.25" enclosure with two SATA III 6 Gb/s drive bays that are also compatible with SATA II 3 Gb/s and SATA 1.5 Gb/s drives. One of the drive bays can natively house a 3.5" hard drive and the other can natively house a 2.5" hard drive or SSD. When both SATA bays are equipped with drives, they operate as independent volumes and do not support any RAID configurations.

The PD520-S3 is cooled using a 4cm fan. Removable hard drive trays help make inserting and removing drives an easy task. Included with this drive enclosure are two SATA cables.

Convenient and Secure Removable HD Enclosure
Stardom hard drive trays are designed with a safety lock and secure architecture to lock the hard drive in place. If one of the hard disks is corrupted, data integrity is maintained. Just replace it with a hard disk of the same model and capacity and the system will copy the original data to the new disk
Compact, Protective Case
Stardom features a protective case to hold the hard disk tray. The case has about the same dimensions as standard VHS tapes for ease of storage and comes with a label that can be used to identify the disk's content
Data in the Whole HD to Go
If your project files are too large to be transmitted via the Internet, or you need to send the same data out for use with different devices, for example to edit photo or video files, the removable hard disk tray and its protective case design are a good choice for your requirements
Good Heat Dissipation Extends Life of the Hard Disk
The constant airflow provided by the PD520's 4cm fan dissipates the heat generated from the hard disks. This enables the hard drive to almost always operate at the manufacturer's recommended operating temperature, extending the disk's life and protecting its data
