Eagle Tech ET-CSMDSU2-BK 3.5” SATA to USB Multitasking Dual Bay Hard Drive Enclosure

altFor quite some time USB drive enclosures have been available, and come in most shapes and sizes imaginable but the none offer the ability to house two hard drives simultaneously nor offer the ability to hot swap each of the drives. This affords the user the opportunity to make quick copies from either of the drives in the enclosure or from the hard drive in the PC. This enclosure is all about multitasking, saving valuable time, and space.

Eagle Tech presents the ET-CSMDSU2-BK 3.5" SATA to USB dual drive enclosure. As the name implies this is a SATA to USB enclosure featuring two separate drive bays. The unit can be configured to handle each drive individually or the drives can be set up as JOBD (just a bunch of disks). Lacking the eSATA port, can the ET-CSMDSU2-BK 3.5" drive enclosure stand up to the demands of daily use or will it just fall flat on its face and just become more desk clutter?
