With its Power Switching circuits, the SW-SATA2X4 can switch the devices power according to the settings of the SATA II / III signal switch once bay mounted. The 4 Port SATA Switch only allows the selected device to be powered and cuts off the powers of the other un-selected devices.

  1. kjell

    Your product works as expected.

  2. Donald Duck

    I love the product. It allows me to have 4 operating systems on one computer instead of having to buy 4 new computers. What I would improove in the future:
    1) Make the LEDs in 4 corners of the faceplate instead of so close together. My full tower computer is under my desk and I have to sit on the floor to see exactly which LED is on.
    2) Let me choose which HD I want to connect BEFORE I press the power on my computer. It would be safer to cold swich the HDs instead of hot switching them.
    3) The key and lock are probably expensive. Please make a less expensive version of the product without a lock.
    4)If I could select the HD with a knob when the computer is still off that would be very good.

  3. George

    The quality of the manual is very poor. It is unclear and hard to see what SATA ports are 1 and 2 or 3 and 4.

  4. Bill D in Green Bay

    I’ve wanted something like this for YEARS. Works exactly as I’d hoped. It’s like I’ve got two computers in one case now. Thank you Cooldrives. Thank you so much. This needs to be on Amazon.
