This Item: Single Bay USB 3.0 to SATA Hard Drive Docking Station, USB 3.0 (5 Gbps) HDD/SSD Dock


Total Price: USB 3.0 (5 Gbps) to SATA Hard Drive Docking Station, HDD/SSD is rated 3.80 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable and Fast! I've gone through 3 other brands of SATA drive docking stations, and with most of them I've had trouble getting drives to mount, where the docking station will give up trying to mount the drive if it can't mount the first time. With the StarTech docking station I am pretty much guaranteed that the drive will mount, as the docking station will keep trying to mount the drive until it succeeds. I also like how the indicator light changes to blue when a drive is mounted, and to pink when the drive is unmounted.
