Built on the same storage design concept from the original Storage Tower, the Storage Tower V features five 5.25" drive bays, bigger power supply and more room for mounting more Port Multipliers (PM) or connectors. All these translate into more flexibility and drives for larger storage capacity to meet your storage requirements.

With the combination of various Disk Arrays, as many as eight 3.5" drives can be installed into the Storage Tower V. By connecting these drives to two 5-port PMs (available with 6G version), the 8 drives can be connected to a system with two eSATA or two USB 3.0 cables. This is just one of the configuration examples. There are practically endless customization possibilities in combining 3.5" or 2.5" SATA or IDE hard drives with various RAID combination capabilities. You can actually consolidate all the storage into one Storage Tower and use it as a storage server for multiple systems. You can even built your own custom NAS storage by attaching the Storage Tower V to the Addonics NAS adapter.

To ensure efficient cooling of all the storage devices inside the enclosure, the Storage Tower V is equipped with a high CFM cooling fan and vented front panel for a well ventilated interior with superior air flow. The case cover, which extends over the top and side panels, can also be easily removed to provide easy access for storage device installation and cable connection.
