Installing drives inside a system is not exactly a complicated or difficult task. Simply align the mounting holes and screw in place. The task becomes difficult when you have to deal with multiple systems and multiple drives. Let’s say a single drive takes 60 seconds to install and you have four drives per case, that takes four minutes. If you have a room with 25 systems, installation will take an hour and 40 minutes, and that is if there were no problems encountered. This doesn’t even factor in the time spent shutting down each computer so you can unplug and remove the drive then plug it back in before powering it on again. In this scenario, hot-swap drives really come in handy and save the user a lot of time. Drives can be pulled out without turning off the computer and disconnecting the data and power supply wires at the back.
