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. See our UASP testing results below for further details.

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 our 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.

The SDOCK2U33HFB is backed by a 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Improved Performance with UASP

UASP is supported in Windows 8, Mac OSX (10.8 or above), and Linux. In testing UASP performs with a 70% faster read speed and 40% faster write speed over traditional USB 3.0 at peak performance.

At the same peak in testing UASP also shows an 80% reduction in required processor resources.

Testing results were obtained using an Intel® Ivy Bridge system, a UASP enabled Enclosure, and a SATA III solid state drive.
