Thank you for your concept idea for a USB 3.1 Gen 2 drive bay in the 5.25" computer bay. While we like your suggestion of a product that connects via USB 3.1 Gen 2 and would be in the 5.25" computer bay, we have some questions to check the feasibility of your concept idea.
-How many drives you would like to fit in that 5.25" space? If you are supporting multiple drives in the 5.25" space and connecting via USB 3.1 Gen 2, there is a concern that swapping a drive can refresh all the drives connected under USB 3.1, due to the nature of USB refreshing its connection when there is a change in hardware.
-Would this use trays or would it be completely trayless?
-Would this be strictly a dock that connects with USB 3.1 Gen 2 or would it have options connecting with SATA?
Please follow up on these questions so we can check the feasibility of this concept idea.
