Addonics Technologies today announced the Addonics 2.5” and 3.5” Snap-In Disk Array removable drive systems that are ideal solutions for increasing hard drive storage in both small and large computing systems.

The Addonics 2.5" Snap-In Disk Array is a high density removable hard drive system that supports installing up to four 2.5" SATA hard drives or SSDs into one standard 5.25" drive bay. This compact form factor makes it an ideal solution for increasing hard drive storage in small computers, mini ATX systems or for applications that require a large number of drives.



The 2.5” Snap-In Disk Array is designed to accommodate any 2.5" SATA hard drive or SSD with a drive height up to 12.7 mm. Each drive slot is equipped with its own power and drive access LEDs. A lock on the drive door secures each hard drive in the Disk Array unit.
The 3.5” model allows you to install as many as five 3.5" hard drives into three 5.25" drive bays on any desktop PC, Tower or 4U Rack mount system.

The 3.5” Snap-In Disk Array also increases the number of hard drives that can be installed into many systems or storage chassis, such as the Addonics family of Storage Towers. Together with Addonics Port Multiplier, you can create a powerful RAID storage solution with large storage capacity and drive redundancy in a compact 3-bay drive enclosure.
Installation of both Snap-in Disk Arrays is as easy as using a VHS cassette. Simply slide the hard drive into one of the drives slots and close the drive door. To remove, simply open the drive door and the hard drive will automatically eject.

Prices range from $69.95 for the 2.5” model to $99 for the 3.5” version.

For more information, visit the product pages of the 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch Snap-In Disk Array.

Don't install thier homepage :)

It is nice, I've been looking for this exact type of solution for a RAID 1 backup... and getting FOUR 2.5" drives in one 5.25" bay is even better.

I wonder what the PC I/O interface is? Simply 1 Sata cable into the mainboard?

Build it into the unit, then we'll talk.

$99 seems high for the 3.5 enclosure, but would really like a review all the same. :D

I know, it was a joke (I've got to start making those more obvious). I've played&recorded to many VHS and audio tapes. I actually Googled for a picture of a car cassette player at first because I thought the insertion mechanism looked similar to this, but then I figured that just posting an image of an audio cassette would be joke enough.
