SDOCKU33EF Hard Drive Docking Station

Maximise compatibility
To ensure all your drives are supported, this docking station features a sleek slot-loading design that supports both 2.5" and 3.5" hard drives (HDD) and solid-state drives (SSD). The dock has also been rigorously tested for support with large capacity drives (tested up to 6TB).

With support for either USB 3.0 or eSATA host connections, this versatile drive dock lets you connect to your computer through either port. Because USB is available on virtually any computer, you can rest assured that this docking station will work with your computer. The added benefit of eSATA ensures you can achieve SATA 6Gpbs performance on computers with an available eSATA port.

You can extend the compatibility of this dock even further by adding IDE support using the SATA to IDE Hard Drive Adapter (SAT2IDEADP), which allows for easy insertion of any 2.5" or 3.5" IDE hard drive into a SATA hard drive dock.

Protect the health of your drives
The docking station has a built-in 80 mm fan that helps keep drives running cooler. To reduce power consumption and noise when the drives are not being accessed, the dock offers variable speed controls on the fan that enables you to make adjustments on the fly, and automatic power down of your SATA drives after a period of inactivity (USB mode only) or when the computer is turned off.

Improve performance
The dock supports full SATA III bandwidth of 6Gbps when connected through eSATA, ensuring you can get the most out of your SSDs.

With USB 3.0 the dock ensures high-bandwidth transfer speeds up to 5Gbps. 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.

The SDOCKU33EF is backed by a 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.
