This external hard drive docking station functions as a SATA HDD dock - providing full, instant access to any 2.5in or 3.5in 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! 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.

Simply connect the HDD docking station to a host computer through USB 2.0, then insert a SATA hard drive into the dock whenever needed. To uninstall or swap the hard drive, just remove it from the dock!

The USB to SATA External HDD Dock Adapter supports plug and play hard drive installation on most operating systems, and offers data transfer speeds of up to 480Mbps - providing a convenient alternative to external hard drive enclosures and saving the time needed to prepare the drive for conventional installation. Double the value of this hard drive docking station, using a SAT2IDEADP (SAT2IDEADP), which enables you to use any 2.5 or 3.5in IDE hard drive in a SATA hard drive dock slot.
