Here is our first look at the Vizo Arius II. The two tabs on the left side are the buttons that you push to the side to open the doors. On the right Vizo placed two LEDs that show HDD activity.

On the side we found that the drive bay has all of the required mounting points and they are exactly the same ones that we used to see on floppy drives.

The back of the drive bay is where all of the action takes place. Once thing to keep in mind is that you need to use the included power cables to get full use of the carrier. Other than that it is just like hooking up a standard hard drive to your SATA data cables.

The bottom of the drive bay does not have any mounting points. Floppy drives have four screw holes underneath, but most cases do not mount drives in this matter any longer.

When you open the bay door an ejector arm pushes the drive out of the carrier making swapping drives very easy.

Here we see a Corsair P64 installed in the Arius II.
