The black USB and eSATA Interface HDD Duplicator Dock from StarTech duplicates/clones a 2.5" or 3.5" SATA hard drive to another without the use of a computer, or can be connected to a computer system for use as an external hard drive dock. As a hard drive duplicator, this device lets you create an exact 1-to-1 sector clone from one hard drive to another, including partition and boot sector information and all data, at a rate of 72 MB/s, ensuring data integrity and consistency for sensitive operations such as data recovery.

As an external hard drive dock, the duplicator/dock supports plug-and-play installation and can be connected to your host computer through USB 2.0 or eSATA, providing data transfer speeds up to 480 Mb/s or 3 Gb/s respectively from the hard drives to your computer system. 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.

Plug-and-play installation allows for quick setup; no need to install the hard drives into an enclosure or tray system. This device can be used by technicians who require access to bare hard drives for backup/recovery purposes or need to swap between drives regularly.

Note: eSATA operation with two hard drives installed requires an eSATA host controller with Port Multiplier support.

Standalone cloning operation with LED progress indicator allows for creating 1:1 copies of hard drives without having to connect to a host computer
Quickly switching from the duplicator to USB 2.0 or eSATA connectivity with the push of a button allows a connected computer system to read/write to the drives
A top slot-loading design and drive ejection mechanism provides quick and easy access to the data without having to install drives into an enclosure or tray
Disk sector imaging/cloning to create an exact replica of a source drive onto a different drive
Create identical backups when data integrity is crucial, such as data recovery and forensic applications
Push-button switching between Duplicator mode and Docking Station mode
Patented hard drive eject push-buttons for each drive
Supports SATA revision I/II (150/300) drives up to 2TB in capacity
High-speed USB 2.0 host interface with transfer rates up to 480 Mb/s
Compact, desktop-style form factor
