EDIT: Still waiting on the part number...

One thing: I have built several servers for customers that want the same functionality. The SuperMicro Chassis that have the hot swap bays are the best. After building several hundred of these servers, not one of my customers has had any issues with the drive connectors breaking or getting damaged and they swap the drives weekly (backup servers). A good quality enclosure has tight enough tolerances that the connector cannot get damaged even if you try.
Thanks for this + rep. Yeah I was dissapointed that our supermicro server had the same deal of using the hard drive connector. Good to know that it's designed well enough for longevity. I'll google the cru one too, and if I don't have any luck I guess I'll see if I can find a supermicro single bay hotswap.

I ordered the Dataport 10, it's rated for 30000+ insertions so I think it should last

Nice!

That is one of the models we use and 100's of units later we have never had an issue.
