That's a great help.

I didn't realize I need to remove the front panel first. I spent 15 minutes still could not remove the drive. After I read this guide, I got it done in less than a minute!

Plain and simple. Awesome! I knew I was missing a simple step (I didn't know the front plate had a release lever). With these steps, I was good in about 10 seconds tops.
