With a recent hardware failure in my file server, I quickly learned the value of having a few dual-port storage docking stations on hand. In this review, I am going to take an in-depth look at one of the more budget friendly USB 3.0 docking stations on the market. Jump in and check out my thoughts and performance results of Kingwin's PD-2537U3 Power Dock.
Hard Drive Duplication is one of those things that most people will rarely use in their life, but I can attest that when you need it, a device like this will save you big time! The ability to have a functional storage docking station with drive cloning functionality is a major advantage as you can buy the product for something you will use more than just once a blue moon. Join me today as I review Vantec's new NexStar HDD Duplicator.
Hard drive docking stations are a dime-a-dozen these days, and it seems like every manufacturer of custom PC hardware has their own variant on the single bay and dual bay drives. In this review I am going to get to the bottom of what makes Enermax's Ultrabox EB311SC unique, and put it through some rigorous testing.
The VisionTek Wallet Drive allows a person to use any new or not so new 2.5 SATA I/II/III to create a portable drive. The enclosure can be connected by USB 3.0. This alone would seem to be a great option, but they chose to take it a step further. VisionTek created a leather wrapped enclosure that looks more like a fashion accessory than the typical metal and/or plastic box.
Usually when looking for a HDD Converter there is very little to differentiate them from the other brands and or models. However this is not the case with the Enermax EMK3104, Enermax went above and beyond when they designed and developed this product. Enermax continues on a long tradition of product excellence going back to 1990, Winning multiple awards for product excellence and exceeding the needs and wants of Geek's everywhere.
If you have a spare mSATA drive lying around from an old laptop, or one you’ve recently updated – what should you do with the spare drive? Luckily for us all there is an answer these days! Using the mSATA case from Kingwin you can turn that old drive into a pocket-sized external drive.
