The MB672 looks like most hot-swappable devices that we have seen. This is a 5.25-inch bay device so it will fit in pretty much any case that has a 5.25-inch drive bay. Most of the device is made of steel so it is pretty solid; the front bezel is made of both aluminum and plastic. On the front of the device there is a lock and beside that there is an LCD.
On the back of the device there is a small exhaust fan and all of your connections. There is a 4pin Molex connection, SATA data connection and a master / slave switch.
The front the MB672 easily opens up by just pulling on the small handle. When you open up the drive you can take a look inside and see the connections towards the back of the device. This internal design is very similar to the MB662US-2S we recently reviewed.
Getting the MB672 installed in your case is really easy. We are installing it in the Antec P183 Advanced Mid Tower case so first we have to install the rails on each side of the MB672. Once we do that we can easily slide it into the case and connect the SATA and power connections.
Now before you power on your system just go ahead and slide in your drive. It goes right in and close the door to lock it into place. You do not have to lock the front of the enclosure, but it’s probably a good idea to.
