The anti-static bags? :-)
The bay claims to be. It's got a keylock that powers down the drive. It will
depend on your controller, but most stock motherboard controllers don't like
this. I just power down once a week (horrors!) and swap drives. Since this is
my home box, no big deal.
Question with boldness even the existence of a god;
because if there be one he must approve of the
homage of reason more than that of blindfolded fear.
