The Icy Dock MB994SP-4S is a four-bay hard drive cage that fits in a single 5.25 device bay. It accommodates four 2.5-inch hard drives with up to 15mm height, including 15,000RPM SAS drives. It is actively cooled via two 40mm fans and has a full metal construction.

So... does it let you hot swap?
If I'm wrong, please tell me why. I'm trying to help, but I'm here to learn, too.
See my profile for PC specs. I do not practise what I preach.

Icy Dock says it is hot swappable however it really isn't . . . your hard drive controller needs to support that functionality and mine doesn't.

Right, it hot swaps if you connect the cage to a RAID card for instance. We also have a similar four-bay unit in from Patriot to review that has on-board RAID. That one may allow hot swapping, but we haven't started on it yet.
