NewerTech Voyager Overview

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 Voyager S3 USB 3.0 Dock for 2.5"/3.5" SATA Drives from Newer Technology.

This unique docking station can read almost any 2.5 or 3.5" SATA III 6 Gb/s, SATA II 3 Gb/s, or SATA I 1.5 Gb/s drive, up to 6TB (support for drives over 2TB requires Windows XP 64-bit and later, or macOS 10.2 or later). There's a push-button eject for safe removal, a 2-color status LED, and it uses the ASMedia 1051e chipset. If your system's BIOS allows booting from its USB 3.0 or USB 2.0 interface, you can even use this as an external start up drive.

The weighted base and nonskid 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 includes a USB 3.0, USB-B to USB-A cable for out-of-the-box operation and is compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems.

I don't know of any drive size limitations on the Voyager S3. The limitations if any, show up in your computer operating system and with your USB connections. Call Newertech voyager S3 Tech Support: (800) 275-4576 (north America) My S3 works great, but the largest drive I have used so far is 4TB.

It has a USB-A connection so you would need to adapt that. Also it should work on Big Sur but we haven't tested it yet.

Has anyone used this device to "clone" an SSD boot disk to a larger SSD? Both disks are SATA.
Asked by: Jeff
Not exactly, but I've cloned an SSD boot drive from a mechanical boot disk. I used Macrium Reflect with the source disk in use; other methods might yield different results depending on what cleverness Macrium uses.
