In addition to an SSD OS drive and two priimary HDs, I also have a two hot swappable HD bys installed which work fine but I still end up switching around drives more often than I'd like. As a result I'm considering various external HD options. Lots of choices out there of course from eSata to USB 3.0 to SSD etc. Would appreciate any recommendations as to specific external HD systems to look at for working (not backup) drives?
If you think you will want to swap your external drives take a look at Amazon.com: StarTech SuperSpeed USB 3.0 eSATA Hard Drive Docking Station with Cooling Fan: Electronics
I do NOT know if it allows hot swaps
