Wireless ... hard drive
It would seem that the obvious solution was implemented only a few years after the appearance of Serial ATA: interface and power without external wires.
What alternatives are there:
- The option with eSATA is inconvenient: you need as many as 2 cables and a free outlet.
- Power eSATA is a little better , but there is at least one wire here.
- A docking station for HDD is also convenient , but all the same 2 wires.
- Mobile rack - without wires, but a little more difficult to connect. But universal.
The solution in the picture, in my opinion, is the most ergonomic. This is the case of the Cooler Master RC-692, a review of which is likely to appear on the F-Center soon. To break a connector or miss, according to reviews, is quite difficult - the guides are made correctly. And the plastic is scratch resistant. In a word, a good idea and a good implementation.
The only obvious minus is the axis of rotation of the spindle at an angle. As far as I know, this is not highly recommended by manufacturers.
