This highly compact HDD dock offers the portability needed to add simple external storage to virtually any USB-capable computer, making it a definite asset to have on hand to connect external (bare) hard drives even in mobile computing applications.

Large capacity drives (tested with up to 1TB) can be used to greatly enhance your computer''s storage/backup capabilities. Simply insert a 2.5in SATA hard drive or SSD into the dock, then connect the hard drive dock to a host computer through USB 2.0. To uninstall or swap the hard drive, simply disconnect the USB cable and remove the drive from the dock! In addition to providing a fast convenient way to access or recover data from a mobile 2.5in drive this dock is completely USB powered, so no power adapter is required. The HDD Dock supports plug and play hard drive installation on most operating systems, and offers data transfer speeds of up to 480Mbps - a convenient alternative to external hard drive enclosures that saves the time needed to prepare the drive for conventional installation.
