Dock up to two 2.5" or 3.5" SATA SSDs/HDDs in a stylish black docking station with an integrated 2-port USB 3.0 hub.

The SDOCK2U33HFB USB 3.0 Dual hard drive dock with Fast Charge USB hub enables two SATA 2.5in or 3.5in hard drives (HDD) or solid state drives (SSD) to be connected simultaneously to a computer through USB, while controlling the power status (on/off) of each individual drive independently from the each other. The enclosure supports UASP and delivers optimal performance with a USB 3.0 connection, but is also backward compatible with USB 2.0/1.1 host connections.

The Hard Drive Dock features a built-in 2-port USB 3.0 Hub that enables you to connect additional USB 3.0 devices to your computer through the same USB connection. One of the ports on the hub also has Fast Charging capabilities, that charges iPad's and other mobile devices as effectively as through a wall plug. This Fast Charge Port has been specially designed for compatibility with a wide range of tablets and smartphones.

With support for UASP, the dock performs up to 70% faster than conventional USB 3.0, when paired with a UASP-enabled host controller to utilize the full potential of your SATA III hard drives.

With support for SATA I/II/III, large capacity drives (tested up to 4TB), and 2.5in or 3.5in hard drives this HDD/SSD docking station is compatible with virtually any SATA hard drive, and greatly increases the storage/backup capabilities of your computer. Plus, configurable power management reduces energy consumption, and extends the life of your drives by avoiding unnecessary access.

The docking station features a built-in 80mm cooling fan that helps increase reliability and lifespan of HDDs by keeping the drives cooler. The variable fan speed control allows for on-the-fly adjustments for any type of HDD, or to balance cooling with noise.

Extend the value of this docking station further with the addition of the SATA to IDE Hard Drive Adapter (SAT2IDEADP), allowing easy insertion of any 2.5 or 3.5in. IDE hard drive into a SATA hard drive dock.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Just bought one in Ireland and is running the fan when I turn it on but as soon as I insert a drive in it it stops and nothing happens...DEAD!!!! Also there is no lights on the front buttons...There is light in the adapter as the green led is lit...Disappointed...will have to return it back.Not a happy customer :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well but.... The only issue I have run across is that when you insert 2 drives one of the drives is not assigned a a drive letter designation sometimes both drive are not assigned a drive letter so I have to run Paragon Hard Disk Manager and manually assign drive letters before windows explorer will show the drive attached ... Once the drive is given a drive letter the unit works just as advertised....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Driver installation tip The StarTech web page and the user guide say that the drivers are included inWindows. I discovered that the USB 2.0 driver has to be downloaded from theWindows Update website. My Windows 7 system was configured to "Check forupdates but let me choose whether to download and install them." In thisconfiguration, the USB 2.0 driver never got installed and the device did not workat all. After I changed my Windows Update settings to "Install updatesautomatically", the driver update was completed and the device started working. This info needs to be posted on your web page and in your user guide.I have connected this cradle to Windows 7 laptops via USB 2.0 and USB 3.0ports, and currently have it connected to my Netgear router via USB 2.0, actingas a standalone file server. I'll be using it in this configuration for my backupsand as a personal cloud accessible via the internet.The fast drive swap capability and the minimal driver footprint make this anideal product for moving data between systems quickly, or for cloning harddrives without having to mount them inside a PC.I've only had the device for 3 days, and will post a follow-up review after I'vehad more experience with it. The IT department at my company uses asimilar but less sophisticated drive cradle for PC support, and they swear by them.
