    StarTech UNIDOCKU33 reviews

    Universal USB 3.0 Docking Station for Bare Hard Drives is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good piece and reliable ( so far :) ) Works great. No issues so far. HDD's easily fit, however they can be moved back and forth since it's not perfectly snug. But that is not a problem because if you're moving these around while in use, then you need to read Hard Drives for Dummies. No speed problems and it works on multiple platforms easily. I use this for backing up data and an external drives for my Xbox 360.
