Know your gear

Tripp Lite's USB 3.0 SATA Hard Drive Dock gives you a quick and easy way to set up an external hard drive storage system. Plug the docking station into an available USB 3.0 port on your computer, then insert a 2.5" or 3.5" SATA drive for an instant external storage device. Transfer data at SuperSpeed USB 3.0 rates up to 5 Gbps (provided computer is USB3.0 capable). Far easier than installing the hard drive internally or in a caddy, the USB3.0/SATA Dock is easy to use, convenient and practical. Compatible with Windows 2000/XP/Vista/Win7/Win8. Backward compatible to older USB 2.0 and 1.1 computers (480mbps and 12mbps transfer speeds respectively). Includes 100-240V AC Adapter, and 4-ft. USB 3.0 cable. (No disk drives are included with this unit).
Compatible with Windows and Mac.

Total Price:
Tripp Lite USB 3.0 SuperSpeed to SATA External Hard Drive Docking Station is rated 5.00 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and versatile with many uses Rather than being a hard drive enclosure, this unit is a docking station that accepts both 3.5" and 2.5" sata hard drives. It has both esata and usb connections and is external AC powered. It can be used for backups, for testing and formatting hard drives, or left plugged in for use as an additional hard drive. This is especially useful for laptops or small form factor systems with no room for additional hard drives. It is a clean simple design that appears to be well made. It is not as portable as the ultra small usb powered external drives, but its other good features more than make up for that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Solution So far this is the best solution I've found for accessing hard drives. We had one at work and I liked it so much I had to get one for myself. I've successfully used this for data transfers, formatting, hard drive testing, and even simple data recovery. This is a great product and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anybody.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from as expected from Tripp-lite This makes docking drives super convenient. The rubber feet on the bottom keep it from moving around the desk. Good data speeds too.
