Details: External docking stations are popular because of its flexibility and compatibility. However, because it is for external use, the interface limits the transfer speed of your hard drive while only allowing one to be use at a time. In a standard computer case, there are several 5.25" bays usually reserved for your DVD ROM drive, however, will not naturally fit with your 2.5" or 3.5" hard drives without some assistance. We also want to create a much faster and smoother transition from external to internal setups. Using the duoswap mb971sp-b, you will save precious desktop space by integrating both 3.5" & 2.5" slots into a single 5.25" bay. This gives you the ability to expand and easily go from your external docking station to your computer in just seconds. Having a way to easily exchange between the two industry standard SATA hard drive sizes is difficult to find. The duoswap changes all of this as it is a 5.25" hot swappable drive caddy for 2.5" & 3.5" SATA hard drive or ssd. The mb971sp-b has the most flexibility within a single 5.25" device bay allowing different hard drive combinations, featuring the ability to fit a single 2.5", 3.5" or even both hard drives at the same time to produce the maximum storage capability. Inserting two drives into the duoswap gives you many benefits. With two drives inserted you can easily make backups of your 2.5" to your 3.5" drive or cloning your 3.5" to your 2.5" drive via SATA speed. This makes duoswap a perfect tool for upgrading from 3.5" SATA hard disk drive to 2.5" SATA solid state drive. You can also take advantage of your extra 2.5" and 3.5" drives you have by inserting them quickly and easily into the duoswap system. This saves you time and money because of the mb971sp-b tool-less hot-swap design. The mb971sp-b is perfect as a quick setup accessory for your system as you can have your operating system in the smaller bay with the SSD and your main secondary storage in the bigger bay with high capacity 3.5" hard drives.
