On the back area we have the AC power input, the USB connection part and the ON/OFF button.


The bottom area has 4 rubberized pads for anti slipping and the manufacturer code.


Let’s load it up.

Here how it looks with one HDD 2.5″ and one 3.5″ drive.


And here with the 2x 3.5″ 1 TB Samsungs, the main testing subjects.


It has a solid and secure fitment, despite the heavy nature of 3.5″ hard drives.
