Removable storage. It's something you either depend on greatly on a daily basis for work or something you've never heard of or bothered using in the past. Follow Cameron "Mr.Tweak" Wilmot as he takes a look at one of these mobile racks and why he considers it one of the most useful products ever invented for the PC.

Installation and Usage

 

One of the additional features I like about this product is its easy installation and usability to the degree where it can actually be considered a "feature".

 

The usability of this product is marvelous. As you'll see in the pictures below, the tray is very simple and smooth to pull out of the rack bay as I've named it. This is one of the reasons I think so highly of this product.

 

First off we need to install the desired device into the rack, I've installed a standard ATA100, 7,200rpm IBM HDD for the purpose of this review. I'll let the pictures do the talking...

 

 

In the picture above we can see that the drive is plugged into the rack bay just as you normally would with any regular IDE device...

 

 

In this picture the cover is placed on the rack to protect the drive and improve style...

 

 

Here the rack's IDE interface is connected to the rack bay it sits in...

 

 

Above we see the IDE interface of the rack bay and the cooling fan we spoke briefly about earlier...

 

 

This is the front of the rack bay with the rack installed and locked in place ready for use...

 

 

Here is a picture of the rack bay installed in my case...

 

 

And in this picture you can see it's easy to pull the rack in and out of the rack bay...

 

 

And finally this last picture shows how the rack bay is installed inside your case, as you can see it's exactly the same as any other IDE device.
