Sharkoon Shoves Four SSDs in a 5.25-inch Drive Bay

Sharkoon has introduced a rather simple but clever accessory that should put those unused optical drive bays to good use for some users. It's called the 5.25" Bay Extension that is simply a steel construct that allows users to place either two 2.5" drives and a single 3.5" drive or four 2.5" drives.

As it is intended that any 2.5" drive installed would be an SSD, those mounting holes do not have anti-vibration grommets; however, the 3.5" drives do. The bracket measures 116 x 146 x 37 mm and weighs roughly 150 grams.

Sharkoon's 5.25" Bay Extension will be available in black, red, blue and green, with no word on pricing or availability yet.

    surely they could have made it 8 2.5" drives looking at the height of the 3.5" drive and the fact that 2 will fit next to each other. Or at least 6 anyway
