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

Works as expected, Easy set up with no issues

At the price it seems ok - but

It comes without any documentation or instructions - which i consider a negative I plugged it into a USB and the device registered with the computer (I got the audible signal). But, many of the drives that i looked at didnt read - maybe they needed to be reformatted. I don't know because of lack of documentation.

efficient component in an archive process

I maintain a redundant offsite backup and archive of photo assignments. I use bare internal drives for this, both for efficient use of storage space and because they are cheaper than drives in an enclosure with a power source. I have relied on a Voyager for years. My older model evidently didn't have a chipset which could support newer, multi-terabyte capacity drives. The price point for the current model Voyager made the decision to upgrade easy. This simple-to-use product is well made. Its modest footprint isn't intrusive in my home office. It reliably does exactly what I need it to do.

Great USB 3.0 drive dock

I own a couple of these and they are terrific docks for connecting a SATA hard drive via USB 3.0. They are reasonably priced and work fabulously. It is fast and very reliable.

The Voyager S3 USB 3.0 dock was an affordable and efficient way of dumping files from my wife's old Apple Airport. Aside from the Paragon HPFS driver I needed to read the drive from my Windows PC, everything I needed was in the box. Since I usually have a number of older SATA drives on hand, I should have purchased this long ago. Good product at a good pirce.

Worked better than expected..

I have been using for a few months now and works great. Have used both interfaces and speed is pretty fast. Would buy again.

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.

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.
