So... does it let you hot swap?

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.
