Default Hot-Swap Bays

I'm wondering if a hot-swap bay will allow me to complete the following scenario:

Buy SSD from store. Take it home and turn my computer on. then insert the new drive into the hot-swap bay. download the latest firmware version and apply the update*. disconnect the SSD and take it to the client's place for installation. my system is still on at this point of course.

*This should be possible for all modern SSDs right? I don't need to 'boot' into the SSD before applying a firmware update from a USB drive?

Does that scenario work? if so, is this in any way different than connecting the SSD through an eSata or USB3 connection?
