Where To Buy

Overview

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.

(5 stars) Works with practically every drive.

By:
I love this dock. I have had it for about a year. It makes it easy to recover data from hard drives. I have had a few other docks in the past, but none of them let me read anything under 1 GB. It's excellent for copying old hard drives, and formatting new ones. It doesn't feel cheap. It is made with good quality plastic, so I don't see pieces breaking off of this any time soon. I wish I could find one like this that could read SCSI drives, but I'm quite pleased with this one. Well worth the money.
