Product Overview

Main Features
  • Storage bay adapter
  • SATA 6Gb/s / SAS 6Gb/s
Easily connect and hot swap dual 2.5" and 3.5" SATA/SAS hard drives from a 5.25" bay. The HSB2535SATBK Removable 2-drive backplane lets you quickly install and hot-swap drives from the front of your computer, by turning a 5.25" bay into a hot-swappable SATA/SAS interface for you to connect a 3.5" SATA hard drive (HDD) and/or a 2.5" SATA hard drive or solid state drive (SSD).

The hard drive bay interfaces with SATA/SAS, offering two trayless hard drive bays and can be mounted into any 5.25" front bay, to provide a hot-swappable mobile rack. The bays feature ejection levers which allow drives to be installed and removed quickly from the computer system, providing a convenient way to create backups that can then be removed for safekeeping, archiving, or external portable access.

For added versatility the backplane provides support for both SATA and SAS interfaces, an ideal accommodation for enterprise system integration. Plus, to help prevent drive failure, the bay provides excellent heat dissipation with a built-in fan and slotted aluminum enclosure. Dual Bay 5.25" Trayless Hot Swap Mobile Rack for 2.5" & 3.5" S is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great concept just noisy This is a great way to mount and use both a 3.5 and a 2.5 drive in a single optical bay. Desktop designs are getting ever-smaller so it’s nice to have something like this to maximize space. The design is sleek and modern, the drives fit in it nicely and the mechanism loads and unloads the drives just by moving the handle in front of each drive. I was originally afraid the drives might rattle in the enclosure without padding but it wasn’t the case; instead it’s the fan for cooling that makes more noise than both drives. It’s set to a single-speed, which is safe, but unnecessary. It would have been better to have a variable-speed fan with either a temperature sensor or a dial at the front.I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good way to add additional storage to your system! This bay is easy to install into your system and makes swapping drives easy and convenient. While it seems to have solid construction some elements are plastic and feel under designed. It would be nice if the drive lights had more space between them so you can see from a distance which drive is getting use. As for functionality, both drives I attached worked great and I had no issues while testing the hot swap capabalities. Overall this is not my favourite StarTech product but it does work as advertised. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from How do you eject the SSD? Bought this last week and I really like the concept. The HDD is just fine, but I cannot eject the SSD. Just opening the door does not do anything and there is no eject button. What am I missing?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Way too noisy I just bought this to fit in a new build to be able to easily swap between all the HDD I have lying around but I think I will be sending it back. Before I put this in, my computer which has 7 140mm case fans, 2 HDDs, a GTX 1080 ti and a huge tower cooler was next to silent.However this product alone (I assume because of the tiny fan at the back) is much noisier than my whole computer. It generates an irritating high-pitched whirring sound continuously, whether there are drives fitted in it or not.The product looks otherwise good (although it doesn't sit quite as flush with the front panel as other 5.25 devices) and seems to be of otherwise good quality but I simply cannot use it as is.
