That -is- cool and fancy. However, how often you need this feature in a desktop computer? Once every two years?

Having 7 HDDs in my current "desktop" RAID setup (2xHDD for RAID-0, 4xHDD for RAID-5 and 1x for backup), and had to swap exactly 1 failed HDD within last 3 years..

I have a 3*1TB RAID5 and a 4th drive for backups that I swap out every few months and it saves me alot of time.

My first configuration consisted of everything mounted in the normal drive slots, which caused alot of vibration. My second attempt was drive coolers with those little rubber insulation type feet that screwed to the side of 5.25" bays, but that took me about 30 minutes to swap hard drives (which of course happened during Seagate's awful firmware problems). I used to have a bunch of external enclosures for my backup drives, but they got pretty warm and didn't pass through SMART so I couldn't schedule daily short and weekly long self-tests. Finally I just bought a 4 bay internal hot-swap enclosure and that solved all my problems. Drives are easy to swap in and out, no more clunky external enclosures with power and data cables sprawling all over the place, and no more extended downtime. I almost never have to reboot or take my machine down for anything now. Hard drive fails? Hot swap a new one in and rebuild the array. Need to retrieve an old file from the unused backup drive? Swap it in and grab the data. Every desktop I build for myself from this point on will definitely have a hot-swap enclosure. My only regret is not buying one sooner.

One thing I don't think I'd do is specifically look for a case that has it, because I really have a hard time finding cases I like to begin with. Everything is black or a space ship/ricer case. I'll just find something I like and buy an internal enclosure like I have now.
