The black USB 3.0 to SATA Hard Drive Docking Station for 2.5"/3.5" HDD from StarTech delivers full, instant access to any 2.5"/3.5" SATA (SATA, SATA II, SATA III) Hard Disk Drive (HDD) or Solid State Drive (SSD), without having to mount the drive in a computer or install it in an external enclosure. Large capacity drives (tested with up to 4 TB 3.5" and 1 TB 2.5" drives) can be used to enhance your computer's storage/backup capabilities. Connected to the host computer through a single USB 3.0 SuperSpeed or USB 2.0 connection, the HDD docking station provides a convenient, plug and play storage solution that delivers instant access to the hard drive, without requiring a reboot.
