Antec Introduces Easy SATA 3.5-inch to 5.35-inch HDD Cage

Antec, the global leader in high-performance computer components and accessories for the gaming, PC upgrade and Do-It-Yourself markets, today announced the Easy SATA, the latest addition to Antec’s line of PC accessories. The Easy SATA hot swap hard drive caddy is a storage solution designed to let users swap their hard drives quickly, easily and conveniently. The Easy SATA is the first product of its kind to be released by Antec.
The Easy SATA installs inside any 5.25” drive bay and gives users instant hot swapping capability. The Easy SATA supports 3.5” SATA hard drives. Users are able to access and swap their SATA hard drives by sliding them in and out of the Easy SATA caddy, while a locking switch ensures secure docking each time.


The Easy SATA also provides users with instant eSATA capability. With a built-in eSATA port located on the front bezel, the Easy SATA allows convenient eSATA data transfer at speeds of up to 3Gbps. The Easy SATA is designed for PC users who want to upgrade their existing system to include hard drive hot swap capability and eSATA capability.

The Easy SATA includes one internal 600 mm SATA data cable for eSATA connection and is easy to install. Designed to blend in with the front panel of most PCs, the Easy SATA also features an all black matte finish and a flap door to keep the device discreet while not in operation. The Easy SATA will be included in Antec’s Case Accessories product offering.
“The storage demands of many PC users are growing,” said Scott Richards, senior vice president of Antec. “The Easy SATA is designed to offer users a storage and data transfer solution that is functional, convenient and above all, easy.”

The Easy SATA is available now for an estimated price of $29.95 through major retailers, e-tailers and distributors. The Easy SATA is backed by Antec’s Quality 3-Year Limited Warranty.

Yeah well.. can't they make one 2,5 to 3.5 " ones for SSDs? I think people might find that more useful, since SSDs are starting to tricle down to consumers.

This already existed, as do 2.5" solutions. In fact there are plenty of manufacturers who have bays for 2x2.5" in a single 3.5" slot.

When I want easy hot swap sata, I grab the nearest sata power and data cables and route them outside my case, then I have my own "external" hard drive that's hot swappable.
And all for the low low price of nothing.
