The SATSASBAY425 Removable SAS and SATA Backplane/Mobile Rack offers a convenient and efficient way to maximize the storage density of your PC or Server when drive bay space is limited.

The backplane can house up to four 2.5" SAS or SATA removable hard drives (HDD) or solid state drives (SSD) (9.5mm, 12.5mm, or 14.8mm thick) in a single 5.25in drive bay, while supporting high speed data transfer rates up to 6 Gbps - a compact, RAID-compatible storage solution.

To maximize performance and utilize the full speed potential of your SATA III hard drives, this HDD Backplane supports SATA III for transfer speeds up to 6 Gbps when paired with compatible controller.

To help dissipate operating heat, the SAS/SATA backplane features a sturdy aluminum casing that also helps to protect drives and valuable data from in-transit damage.
