  1. Great product but I could be even greater. Review by Napoleon

    Please put the LED lights farther apart. Please allow the user to choose the HD before pressing the ON/OFF button on the computer. Four buttons instead of one so we can press a button once instead of up to 4 times would be very good. I love the product. I bet many households avoids buying a second computer because they bought the switch. I bought 3 switches and like 2 years later they all work. (Posted on 7/13/2015)

  2. Here's how to attach the cables Review by SDH
    Price
    Quality
    Value

    I agree with other reviewers.... the manual needs to be redone. You cannot even see the pictures clearly enough to figure out what the intent is. So, here is how to hook up the cables, and the description is valid if you set the device down and look at it from the rear. If you do this then (1) to the far left is the power-out connectors for up to 4 drives. For those 4 the first set of two (against the far left edge) are for drive 2 against the rear edge, and then drive 1 in front of 2, towards the front. The next set of two is for drive 4 and 3, with the drive 4 connector being against the rear edge. Next, to the right, comes (2) a stacked set of two SATA data male connectors with the port for drive 1 on top and that for drive 2 beneath. Then, to the right of those, comes (3) a single male SATA data port for a single SATA cable to interface between the device and your motherboard. Then, to the right of that comes (4) another stacked set of two SATA data male connectors with the port for drive 3 on top, and that for drive 4 beneath. Finally, to the far right comes a single connector for power to come in from the workstation to feed the device and whichever ever single drive you have selected to be active. (Posted on 6/27/2015)

  3. Does what it's supposed to do. Review by Hard Drive Selector
    Price
    Quality
    Value

    If you want to have multiple isolated Hard Drives on your Computer this is what you need. You can have up to four drives and can select at boot which one you want to use. The others will remain powered off. This allows for multiple Operating Systems on your computer without any possibility of virus/malware "crossover" as can happen on dual boot systems. I gave four stars instead of 5 in "Quality" only because the instructions are unclear but it's not hard to figure out how to use this... (Posted on 1/13/2015)

  4. It was everything I expected. Review by Jim

    A much better idea than setting up several operating systems on a mult-boot drive.
    Important during this time of Windows XP, 7, 8, and now 9 Beta. (Posted on 5/8/2014)

  6. Works, but there is room for improvement Review by Donald Duck
    Price
    Quality

    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. (Posted on 3/11/2014)

    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. (Posted on 3/8/2014)

    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. (Posted on 8/30/2013)
