Budget hot swap case

TheGermanEngie

Does anyone know of a case that has hot swappable 2.5" drive bays? I'm looking on eBay but they're all server 2U racks and ATX cases that are overpriced af.

Most cases you'll find that are hot swapable are not budget friendly. 

 

If you get a case with 5.25" front bays, you can always get an adapter. That would probably be my suggestion.

As a side note (because I forgot to mention) the adapter in that link is a Dual 2.5" to 3.5" adapter, you'll need a (very cheap) 3.5" to 5.25" bay adapter to get this to function correctly
