StarTech SATSASBP Overview

Easily connect and hot swap a SSD or HDD from a 3.5in bay. Now it's easy to increase the storage capabilities of your server or PC while protecting data integrity. This one-bay mobile rack backplane lets you install and easily remove a 2.5in SAS or SATA HDD or SDD in a 3.5in external expansion bay on your desktop PC or server. It's ideal for system integrators and administrators looking for flexible management of data storage.
Easy compatibility
The backplane provides an easy, convenient way to install and swap drives between desktops or servers. It supports both SAS and SATA 2.5in drives ranging from 5 to 15mm in height. To maximize the performance of your hard drives, the mobile rack supports SAS II and SATA III for transfer speeds up to 6 Gbps when paired with a compatible controller.
Convenient, interchangeable drive trays
Many fast-paced work environments require drives to be removed regularly. This convenient backplane lets you hot swap between systems quickly, without shutting down. The included drive tray is interchangeable, working with both the single-bay backplane and the 4-bay backplane (SATSASBP425) so you can hot swap between systems for easy file access.
Vented metal design for durability

The Non-Scratch SATA (NSS) connector provides a high 50,000+ insertion rating, your assurance of long-lasting performance of both the drives and the bay.
