For the first time in a while, I'm impressed by a TT product, at least on paper. The 2.5"/3.5" / USB 3.0 drive bay looks like a good idea (and hopefully execution!)

Atleast from pictures, this product seems to have a piggy back sata connectors without any controllers on it so I hope its just as good as it looks. :respect:
