Key Features:

Maximise Compatibility

With support for either USB 3.0 or eSATA host connections, this versatile drive dock gives you the freedom to connect to your computer through either port. The docking station features a slot-loading design that supports both 2.5" and 3.5" drives and it has been tested with drives up to 6TB.

Protect the Health of Your Drives

For optimal performance, the docking station has a built-in 80mm fan that helps keep the drive running cooler. The variable speed fan can be adjusted on the fly to reduce power consumption and noise when the drive isn't being accessed. The HDD dock will also power down SATA drives after a period of inactivity (USB mode only) or when the computer is turned off, to help reduce power consumption and noise when not being accessed.

Improve Performance

For the fastest possible performance, this dock supports the full SATA III bandwidth of 6 Gbps when connected through eSATA, ensuring you can get the most out of your solid-state drives.

This USB 3.0 dock ensures high-bandwidth transfer speeds up to 5 Gbps. The USB host interface connection also supports UASP, which delivers performance up to 70% faster than conventional USB 3.0 when paired with a compatible host controller. UASP is supported in Windows 8, Mac OSX (10.8 or above), and Linux.
