iStarUSA BPN-DE-110 SATA III Trayless Hot-Swappable Removable HD Cage
|Some say first impressions last a lifetime, we believe a
lifetime is not enough to enjoy the excellence that is
BPN-DE drive cages. Supporting SAS and SATA connections,
they convert regular optical drive, also known as "CD"
drive bays, into usable and hot-swappable drive bays for
standard 3.5 inch hard drives. Many people own a drive
cage or two, but not many people own it with pride. Its
purpose is simple, to expand a computer case or chassis's
storage capacity, but its mission is to outperform, out
design, and out shine its competitors.
|The Aluminum Frame
These drive cages are constructed with full aluminum frame
and bezels with stylish rims that resemble that of diamond
emblems. This design not only helps dissipate heat, but it
also reduces the overall weight of the computer case or
chassis. Media production and travelling requires more
equipment at a lighter weight, and these drive cages are the
best choices for production systems.
Having the capability to carry raw data from one system to
another is the key to high production speed. This need for
speed is satisfied with a tray-less drive bay design that
allows users to physically take out the data and plug it
into other tray-less equipped drive bays to populate the
data previously recorded elsewhere.
Studio productions make gigabytes of data on a daily basis,
and loosing that data is unacceptable. The BPN-DE drive
cages are RAID capable with your own controller. With
individual SAS or SATA connectors, each hard drive can be
configured to mirror data according to the users
preferences. The LED lights will clearly indicate drive
activities in the bays, which can also be enabled or
disabled from the back of the drive cage.
|Security is the Key
Every drive bay is protected by a key lock that prevents
even friends from accessing data without permission. The
point is not to make a stooge out of everyone, but it's to
keep the raw data safe so that the polished product can be
shared in its full potential.
Data transfer can emit a great deal of heat, especially at a
blazing 6 .0 gigabits per second rate. The removable fan
cover allows tech enthusiasts to install their preferred
brand of fans to their drive cages, and the fan speed switch
can be adjusted to fit the needs of the system.
