The black USB 3.0 to Dual 2.5"/3.5" SATA Hard Drive Docking Station from StarTech enables two SATA 2.5" or 3.5" 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. Large capacity drives (tested with up to 4TB 3.5" and 1TB 2.5" drives per bay) can be used to greatly enhance your computer's storage/backup capabilities. This device can be used by data recovery specialists who need quick access to drives for imaging, and technicians who test or benchmark multiple hard drives.

Using a single USB connection, this docking station can provide data transfer rates of up to 5 Gb/s with SuperSpeed USB 3.0, while remaining backwards compatible with USB 2.0 systems (data transfer rates up to 480 Mb/s). You can extend the value of this hard drive docking station further with the addition of SATA to IDE hard drive adapter (SAT2IDEADP), allowing easy insertion of any 2.5" or 3.5" IDE hard drive into a SATA hard drive dock.

    Comments about StarTech USB 3.0 to Dual 2.5"/3.5" SATA Hard Drive Docking Station (Black):

    I've used HDD docks for years and love them. Until recently, I've mostly used Thermaltake Black X USB/eSATA docks. When I upgraded one of my Macs, I wanted to take advantage of the USB 3 speed, but read lots of reviews where people using Macs had issues with the dock automatically unmounting drives - even in the middle of copying.

    The StarTech seemed to have the best reviews, so I gave it a go. After a month or so, I'm pretty happy. It's made just as well as my other docks and its simple to insert and remove drives. I don't see any need for the versions that have fans.

    But I'm disappointed by two things:
    Connected to a late 2014 iMac running OS 10.9.4, with a pair of 1TB WD Black drives mounted, it sometimes doesn't handle the computer going to sleep well and will report that the drives were improperly disconnected.

    When the drives are unmounted (or when the computer sleeps) the drives do not spin down as they do when in the Thermaltake docks.

    The speed and space savings of two drives in one dock is worth it to me, but there is room for improvement.
