NewerTech NWTU3S3HD overview

  • 1Description

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 Newer Technology Voyager S3 USB 3.0 Dock for 2.5"/3.5" SATA I/II/III HDD.

This unique docking station can read almost any 2.5 or 3.5" drive, up to 6TB (support for drives over 2TB requires Windows XP 64-bit and later, or Mac OS X 10.2 or later) in all SATA I/II/III interfaces. 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 even includes a USB 3.0 cable for out-of-the-box operation. It's compatible with Mac, PC, and Linux operating systems.

    NewerTech NWTU3S3HD reviews

    Voyager S3 USB 3.0 Dock for 2.5"/3.5" SATA I/II/III HDD is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 74.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from How did I ever live without it?! I have a number of drives in USB 2.0 enclosures that are just way too slow to transfer large amounts of data. I also have various bare drives I need access to on occasion. I used to have to open up my computer case and have drives dangling out the side with SATA power and cables connecting them...not the best solution. This dock is a life saver! It also solves a pesky problem with the ATOMOS Ninja 2's drive dock that gets nowhere near the proper transfer speeds on my PC. I unload all my Ninja 2 footage with this thing and it's super speedy and reliable. I use it very often and have had no trouble with any of my drives.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect HD Docking Option I purchased the Newer Technology Voyager S3 USB 3.0 Dock for 2.5/3.5 SATA I/II/III HDD as the temp docking station for the WD Red drive and to access files on older 3.5 drives I have. Picture is of my actual Newer dock and WD drive. I bundled the Newer Tech Voyager with this drive to backup a Lacie Porche external that needed formatting. It did it, no issues, and am happy with the transfer speeds that the dock allows. Conclusion: Happy - flawless thus far. Push the power button, desktop icon appears immediately. Won't be traveling with this product, so the weight is not an issue. What you see is what you get. Zero compatibility issues, zero issues at all. Happy camper. Thanks B&H!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb External Drive Solution I just bought a new iMac with a 3TB internal drive and needed an external backup drive. Because the new iMac has USB 3.0 and no Firewire I had to find a new solution. This Newer Technology Voyager USB 3.0 Dock is perfect. The USB 3.0 is capable of 500MB/s transfer rates and I can hot swap any SATA drive (3.5 or 2.5) into it. So I can use multiple bare internal drives to accomplish my backup schemes, including off site storage. And the price was very reasonable and includes the USB 3.0 cable that I needed to connect to the iMac. A much better solution than the usual external case drives that include the interface and power supply which must be duplicated if more than one backup drive is used.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and Functional If all things in life were designed and built like the HDD Dock, then we'd have no needs for consumer reviews and probably Consumer Reports would go out of business. Voyager S3 does what it says it would do. Need I say more The only thing I can add is that the USB 3.0 port on the S3 is a lot sturdier than the one on the older model Voyager Q- Quad interface. On the latter model the type of USB 3.0 port was a Micro B which I think is much too flimsy for this type of dock. That is the main reason I got the S3. The Q worked fine apart from the Micro B connector.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works with 3TB WD Caviar Green Drives I use Western Digital 3TB Hard Drives as my off-site backup for my photo archives and this dock works perfectly with them. Previously I was using a similar dock that could only handle drives up to 2TB, so I upgraded to this to handle the larger drives. Great price, has worked perfectly so far. I'm using a 2013 iMac with Mavericks OS and it works perfectly with this. The description says you need Windows 8 or something, but does not mention Mac OS compatibility. I had to check the manufacturer's website which listed Mac compatibility.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent performance. I was at first surprised by the weight (its heavy) of the Voyager unit and took that to mean it was well built. I had also just purchased a Blackmagic Television Studio mixer and needed to have a dock for moving our video files off our recorders. I noted that the Blackmagic artwork drawings in their manuals showed a line art drawing of how to connect to other gear and their dock looked just like the Voyager unit without the logo. I took a chance that maybe they were the same unit and judged if Blackmagic liked them they should work fine. I haven't been disappointed!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable product I have bought this dock for my Samsung EVO series SSD drives. Its very easy and simple: just plug and play. One should be careful while inserting the SSD/HDD drives, so that it doesnot damage wear out the pin contacts in due course. Cautious way of plugging it will enable it to be used for years.I had no problems whatsoever.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought this to replace OWC dual bay thunderbolt dock This works great, it's quiet and I haven't had any problems yet. The OWC dock was extremely loud and emitted a high pitch noise. It also felt like very cheap plastic and was incredibly difficult to get the drives out. It was terrifying trying to get one drive out while the other was active. This is also a lot less expensive for something that works a lot better than the OWC
