5-IN-3 Drive Chassis

The 5-in-3 Drive Chassis is Addonics latest storage solution that enable installing as many as five 3.5" storage device into three 5.25" drive bays on any Desktop PC, Tower or 4U Rack mount system. The 3.5" storage device can be a regular 3.5" hard drive, internal 3.5" flash reader or any 3.5" form factor storage device such as the Addonics 2.5" Snap-In drives, Ruby Drive Cartridge and internal flash readers. Constructed with heavy gauge sheet metal, this 5-IN-3 Drive Chassis offers a sturdy frame and efficient heat dissipation.

The 5-IN-3 Drive Chassis increases 75% of the total number of 3.5" storage devices that can be installed into multi-bay storage chassis or systems with three or more 5.25" drive bays. For example on our Storage Tower III, as many as ten 2.5" hard drives can be installed by mounting five 2.5" Double Snap-In drives into the 5-IN-3 Drive Chassis.
