Product Highlights
  • 2.5"/3.5" SATA Drives up to 4TB
  • Also Supports SSD Drives
  • USB 3.0 Connector, Cable Included
  • For Mac, PC, and Linux
  • Windows XP 64-bit Required for 2TB+

If you have spare hard drives lying around and you want an easier way to read them than throwing them back into your computer chassis, then you need the Newer Technology Voyager S3 USB 3.0 Dock for 2.5"/3.5" SATA I/II/III HDD.

This unique docking station can read any 2.5 or 3.5" drive, up to 4TB (support for drives over 2TB requires Windows XP 64-bit and later) in all SATA I/II/III interfaces. There's a push-button eject for safe removal, a 2-color status LED, and it uses the LucidPort USB300REV2 chipset. If your PC bios allows booting from the USB 3.0 interface, you can even use this as an external start up drive.

The weighted base and non-skid rubber feet ensure stable operation, and the compact design won't significantly impact your workspace. It's quiet, and no cooling fan is needed, so you won't even know it's there. It even includes a USB 3.0 cable for out-of-the-box operation. It's compatible with Mac, PC, and Linux operating systems.

Boot and Swap Drives at Will
Whether you're on a data recovery mission or just want to check the contents of an older swapped out drive, Newer Technology Voyager is the easiest, most convenient way to access data from any Serial ATA (SATA) drive. Just insert any standard 2.5" or 3.5" SATA I/II/III drive with up to 4.0TB capacity into the compact docking base and hook up through the USB 3.0 port. Then, start reading and/or writing data to the docked drive. There's nothing else to install or configure!
Save Time and Money
With its Plug and Play design, the Newer Technology Voyager saves you the time of installing a drive into a computer or the cost of an external enclosure. Now you can think of bare SATA drives with the same convenience and instant access benefits as flash memory cards ... but with huge gains in storage capacity.
Hot Swap Ready
Have multiple drives you need to access? No problem, Newer Technology Voyager's unique design makes hot-swapping SATA drives a breeze. When finished using your drive, simply pull up on it or use the eject lever for 3.5" drives for quick and effortless removal.
Ideal for Photographers and Videographers
Instead of needing multiple enclosures and power supplies for every archived drive, Newer Technology Voyager makes accessing your valuable data a breeze. Just slide in your drive, find the desired image or clip, and then return the drive to your storage safe.
True Plug and Play
With a USB 3.0 interface connector cable included, an auto-switching power supply for worldwide compatibility, and flexible operating system compatibility, the Newer Technology Voyager can travel your data universe with ease.

      I purchased the Newer Technology Voyager S3 USB 3.0 Dock for 2.5/3.5 SATA I/II/III HDD as the temp docking station for the WD Red drive and to access files on older 3.5" drives I have. Picture is of my actual Newer dock and WD drive.

      I bundled the Newer Tech Voyager with this drive to backup a Lacie Porche external that needed formatting. It did it, no issues, and am happy with the transfer speeds that the dock allows.

      Conclusion:
      Happy - flawless thus far. Push the power button, desktop icon appears immediately. Won't be traveling with this product, so the weight is not an issue. What you see is what you get. Zero compatibility issues, zero issues at all. Happy camper. Thanks B&H!

      My purpose for buying the Voyager s3 was solely to back up files onto my new Seagate Constellation ES.3 ST4000NM0033 4TB 7200 R drive. I plugged the V S3 in and attached it to my mac pro. I first used a 256g ssd drive and it worked like a charm. I then plugged in my 4tb drive and nothing. I tried the second usb drive and nothing. I thin tried putting my mouse back in the usb slot and it had caused both usb slots to quit working. I restarted and they regained function but the Voyager s3 still wouldn't read the 4tb drive. Frustrated.

        Bought this unit to clone a system drive. That's not done yet, but with a quick shake down it appears to be functioning just fine. Seemingly stronger USB connection than the unit it replaces. One design plus with the included power supply is that it is convertible from "wall wart" to a configuration that accepts a common power cord.

            I bought this when the communication interface on one of my G-tech drives died. I was able to transfer all the data off the drive without using a data reclamation service which would have cost me a stupid amount of money. I could probably just run the drive and edit using this.

                      These are wonderful! I love being organized and having back up hard drives handy. Before, my drives were in a plastic bag-surrounded by foam-in a box-in the basement. Now they are compact and handy, in my office cabinet. I bought two and stacked them to hold four back up hard drives.

                        I replaced two computer hard drives from 1T, to 3T & 4T drives. This USB 3.0 dock allows those 1T drives to become back ups for video footage while working on projects. Data transfer is much faster than with the USB2 dock I used previously. Two other 1T hard drives I replaced were with 250GB-SSD's and this dock accomodates those too. When the price of SSD's goes down, and their capacity goes up, I'll replace them and use the current ones for even faster more reliable back ups.

                            This is a great tool when using external SSD drives. I use the Blackmagic Design Cinema camera and I needed something to quickly transfer my footage to my computer and then reformat the drive. The SSD inserts quickly into the top of the unit and is easy to eject with the release button on top. This is best used to temporarily dock the SSD drive for file transfer, not to add more hard drive space to your computer.

                              My purpose for buying the Voyager s3 was solely to back up files onto my new Seagate Constellation ES.3 ST4000NM0033 4TB 7200 R drive. I plugged the V S3 in and attached it to my mac pro. I first used a 256g ssd drive and it worked like a charm. I then plugged in my 4tb drive and nothing. I tried the second usb drive and nothing. I thin tried putting my mouse back in the usb slot and it had caused both usb slots to quit working. I restarted and they regained function but the Voyager s3 still wouldn't read the 4tb drive. Frustrated.

                                I was looking at several HD docking solutions, and eventually went with this one. I am very pleased with the result! It is solid, well built, and easy to use. I was at first turned off by the necessity for the power cord, but this item has become an indispensible addition to my workflow!

                                  If all things in life were designed and built like the HDD Dock, then we'd have no needs for consumer reviews and probably Consumer Reports would go out of business. Voyager S3 does what it says it would do. Need I say more

                                  The only thing I can add is that the USB 3.0 port on the S3 is a lot sturdier than the one on the "older" model Voyager Q- Quad interface. On the latter model the type of USB 3.0 port was a Micro B which I think is much too flimsy for this type of dock. That is the main reason I got the S3. The Q worked fine apart from the Micro B connector.

                                    I use it for ghosting drives. It didn't seem to recognize a whole 3 gig drive when I tried it. My guess is 2 gig is max. Most of the drives im ghosting are 2gb or smaller.

                                      Although i would have preferred the other version where it has a various connection, this one only has USB3 port which does the job for me almost 99 percent of the time.

                                      So far it seems working well and reliable.

                                          The specs on this are a little ambiguous when it comes to compatibility for over 2TB drives. I am running Mac OS and my 3TB toshiba drives work perfectly. Don't have a single complaint. Docks nicely and transfers quickly.

                                            Comments about Newer Technology Voyager S3 USB 3.0 Dock for 2.5"/3.5" SATA I/II/III HDD:

                                            I was at first surprised by the weight (its heavy) of the Voyager unit and took that to mean it was well built. I had also just purchased a Blackmagic Television Studio mixer and needed to have a dock for moving our video files off our recorders. I noted that the Blackmagic artwork drawings in their manuals showed a line art drawing of how to connect to other gear and their dock looked just like the Voyager unit without the logo. I took a chance that maybe they were the same unit and judged if Blackmagic liked them they should work fine. I haven't been disappointed!
