Description

Connect both an IDE and SATA hard drive to a computer through USB 2.0. The UNIDOCK2U HDD Docking Station delivers full, instant access to any 2.5" and/or 3.5" IDE or SATA hard drive without having to mount the drive in a computer, or install it in an external enclosure. Large capacity drives (tested with up to 4TB 3.5" and 1TB 2.5" drives) can be used to greatly enhance your computer's storage/backup capabilities.

Connected to the host computer through a single USB 2.0 connection, both an IDE hard drive and a SATA hard drive (SATA, SATA II, SATA III) can be connected to the HDD dock simultaneously - a convenient solution for migrating data from an IDE drive to a SATA drive or vice versa, or simply harnessing fast and simple access to the contents on both hard drives.

The hard drive docking station provides the ideal solution for any laptop or desktop application, with support for plug and play hard drive installation on most operating systems to ensure easy hard drive swapping and convenient access to valuable data.

Good buy

I got this to have a last look at my stack of 1Gb to 80Gb IDE drives before I bin them. I only wish that IDE drives had connectors like SATA drives. The gap between the power and data cables varies a lot so it is not just a straight plugin.

If it is just SATA, it is fairly neat. With IDE you need a lot more desk space because the disk has to lie flat next to the docking station.

For IDE, there is a fiddly keyed ribbon cable and a sometimes difficult to remove power cable. For the laptop IDE drives, the ribbon looks quite fragile but looks can be decieving. Would have been nice if the ribbon connectors had tabs for pulling them off and the power connectors were slightly longer so that there was more surface to grip and pull them off.

The unit comes with a power adapter and 3 kettle leads for UK, Europe and North America. Wonder why they don't build these units with an integrated power adapter. Maybe it is some PA testing requirement.

Basically it does not work. On Linux the disk is not readable and on Windows it does not appear in "my computer" despite being said to be available.

I was hoping to be able to read and possibly use the IDE disks hanging around, but it seems like a waste of money
