Sans Digital HDDRACK5
Sans Digital has released a new storage rack for hard drives, the HDDRACK5. The tower holds up to five 3.5-inch SATA hard drives, locked into place with turnbuckle screws; when attached to a 20- or 24-pin ATX supply, an on/off switch controls the power of all drives simultaneously. For dissipating heat the tower uses a 4.7-inch fan, and a hollow aluminum frame.
Those who need even more storage in a compact space can stack a second HDDRACK5 on top of the first, and fasten it using a hand-twisted screw. A single tower costs $45; no special hard drive bundles are available.
