I love storage. It doesn’t matter what kind. I have stock in those plastic dresser-style drawers, and I keep ’em chock full of crap I’ll never use or at the most very rarely. Any time I look at a car I check out the trunk first, and try to estimate how many bodies would fit in there. If I’m unsure, I’ll ask the salesman. And yes, I have done it before. Ah, the joys and freedoms of being a sociopath. But my favorite type of storage is always those heavy bricks we call Hard Drives. I have them in all capacities, and when I want to access one, I simply take apart my external storage unit, or power down my computer and take the side off, install the HD, and then put it all back together. It’s a pain in the ass at best.
And then I recieved this little dandy. The T-5F SS by the people at iStarUSA. It’s an HDD reader, like the SD card reader on the front of most of your computers. T5F-SS is a mobile rack for use with 3.5″ SAS and SATA I/II hard drive. The storage capacity of the hard drive is unlimited. The trayless and screwless design is for fast and easy installation. The anti-vibration design gives hard drive an extra protection from damage. Blue LED indicator enables monitor power and hard drive activities. Security key-lock prevents intrusion and theft to the most important data. And, possibly the best of all… it’s Hot Swappable!
