Hello all. I was looking into hard drive docking bays that you can stick into a 5 inch bay on a mid tower. I'd prefer a bay that stays in place that you insert and remove the actual drive from as opposed to a mobile enclosure. I know there are some cases that have a SATA3 dock ready for both 2.5 and 3.5 sized HDs. You just have more flexibility in case choices I think if you go with a 5 inch bay for this task. I've seen one from startech with mixed reviews. I like to do the occasional drive clone, and sometimes slap in a different OS. I'd want to boot from it which is why I'd prefer docking to SATA3 instead of using a USB docking station.

Just curious if anyone found one they liked better than the rest of the devices out there. Thanks for any feedback.

If anybody has any suggestions for 5" parallel (IDE) docks that fit 3.5" drives, please post them here as well (Amazon). I have some really old (well, not *that* old) hardware that I want to do the same with.
