4 Port SATA III / II / I Switch With KeyLock and LED 6Gbps Compatible

Product Review (submitted on September 27, 2011):

SATA Switch

If you'd like to keep your operating systems and disks completely separate without having to keep cracking open your case, sata hard drive switch might work for you.

Why would you want to do this? By selectively offering power to only one of the drives you have hooked up, you recreate the effect of completely swapping out the hard drive. Instead of multiple partitions and boot loader applications, the computer just boots to whichever drive is powered as though it were the only drive with an operating system in the computer. If you want to or need to maintain completely independent disks, the simple switch makes it hassle free.
