    ToughArmor is renowned in the enterprise and industrial data storage industry for its ruggedized full-metal enclosure and superior protection, and this trend continues with the MB601VK-1B. Its 100% steel enclosure provides enhanced protection against wear, bumps, and shock damage, and meets flammability standards.

    For optimal cooling, the heat is further dispersed through the intelligently placed ventilation holes on all sides, which works together with your computers cooling system to protect your drives from overheating damage, even under load.

    Packed with Features

    An LED status light built into the tray and lets you know when your drive is powered up and in use. To save power, the LED shuts off when no drive is installed.

    For an additional physical layer of security, the included key-lock can be used to protect against unwanted access and secure drives in particularly rough environments, such as military applications and in-vehicle PCs.

    When not in use, the integrated dust cover protects the open bay from dust, which would otherwise clog the internal connectors and cause additional wear.

The benefits to having the support brackets is to reduce the chances accidental damage to the rear connector when disconnecting improperly and prevent it from shifting around.
