Century’s CMRK-S2OD Crams More Storage Into A Single Drive Bay

The more functionality you can cram into a piece of technology, the more appealing it seems to be to the masses. And if you’re still using a tower PC, or even a small barebones box, here’s a pretty easy way to squeeze some more storage into it. Japan-based Century has created this optical disc drive, presumably DVD, that sits in your standard 5.25-inch bay. But by using slimmer hardware they’re able to save enough room to accomodate a couple of 2.5 inch SATA hard drives underneath it as well. The drive looks like it also provides easy pull-out access to the hard drives for swapping them as needed, and will set you back ~$54 (¥4,580) minus the cost of the HDDs.
