Description

Enable external, hot-swap access to 2.5in SATA drives from a portable mini USB2.0 drive dock.

The SATDOCK25U Hard Drive Docking Station provides full, instant access to any 2.5in SATA (SATA, SATA II, SATA III) hard drive or solid state drive - without having to mount the hard drive in a computer or install it in an enclosure!

This highly compact HDD dock offers the portability needed to add simple external storage to virtually any USB-capable computer, making it a definite asset to have on hand to connect external (bare) hard drives even in mobile computing applications. Plus, its small form factor design requires minimal space on a desktop or work bench. Large capacity drives (tested with up to 1TB) can be used to greatly enhance your computer's storage/backup capabilities.

Simply insert a 2.5in SATA hard drive or SSD into the dock, then connect the hard drive dock to a host computer through USB 2.0. To uninstall or swap the hard drive, simply disconnect the USB cable and remove the drive from the dock!

In addition to providing a fast convenient way to access or recover data from a mobile 2.5in drive this dock is completely USB powered, so no power adapter is required. The HDD Dock supports plug and play hard drive installation on most operating systems, and offers data transfer speeds of up to 480Mbps - a convenient alternative to external hard drive enclosures that saves the time needed to prepare the drive for conventional installation.

I needed to recover data from a dead laptop's hard drive and this made it a very quick and simple job. An added bonus is that I now have a docking station to allow old SATA drives to be used as backup storage.
There are lots of similar solutions out there but costing 2-4 times as much and many also require external power supply. This is powered solely through the supplied USB 'Y' cable and is simplicity itself to use - insert SATA drive, connect USB cable and 'voila', extra drive now accessible from Windows Explorer.
A compact, neat solution which doesn't require a seperate power supply and does exactly what it says on the tin. You could do far worse than buying this item.

This dock works exactly as it should, The unit comes with a Y USB cable so you can plug both connectors if your drive needs more power.

The unit has a handy flip-out stabilization arm to keep it steady.

Currently using mine with a 250 Western Digital drive. My only criticism is that most of the drive is exposed due to the nature of the dock.
