I am a little confused about this. I understand that hot swappable hard drives are considerably more expensive than a standard internal drive, but is that due to the tray?
If I have a case that already has multiple hot swap trays in it can I use regular hard drives in there and still have hot swapping functionality?
If I need specific hot swap drives, can I still use standard drives in hot swap trays and just lose the functionality or should I avoid a case with hot swap trays all together if I don't plan on using the right drives. Reason I ask, is because id like to have the ability to upgrade to HS drives without buying a new case.
