Looking for a recommendation for a Removale Disk Rack


A

Al Dykes

I need a couple removable hard disk racks and enclosures. I'd
like to pick a brand that's been around awhile so if I need
more trays later I can get them.

I want to use SATA, and I want decent cooling even though
I'm not likely to use anything faster than 7200rpm drives.

Thanks

Thanks, but these seems to be dealers.
They are discount retailers.

likely to be around for a while.
Look more closely at the brands being offered by these retailers.
Kingwin, for example, has been around for a while.

Ron, I see that Kingwin has different models of their SATA-SATA
removable racks: one with no fan, one with one fan, one with two fans,
and one with 3 fans.

As you seem to have experience with this equipment, for a 7200RPM hdd,
at what point is the temp stable (how many fans are enough?) and how
noisy are these units?

Thanks

P.S. If you have a chance to view my post from today (5/31, 11:47AM), I
would appreciate it. And thanks for your support on the SCSI board.

One fan is likely enough but zero fans turns these things into drive ovens
which'll kill a HD in no time so I use the three fan KF-83(~$30 for
rack+tray).
