USB 3.0 HDD Dock: http://amzn.to/TUKm9s

They released an updated version where you can SAFELY eject each drive individually! Meaning you CHOOSE which drive to safely eject inside windows. So if you’re transferring (or cloning two drives), you don’t have to interrupt that process to hot swap a hard drive! I’m getting that version and will use it in my FULL REVIEW of this awesome dock!!

OMG! Other power connectors for UK (looks like “Y”) & for EUROPE ( looks like “H”).

SenselessActsOfKindness says:

Where would one purchase a single 72k adapter? I have a 54k but the 72k requires a power source (to my understanding).
Thanks.

Stereotypical nerd…… These creatures are rare to find in their natural habitats these days

Lisa McDonald says:

I have used an iDsonix docking station from BIZARKDEAL a few times with great results, but recently used it to help in my converting my mid-2012 Macbook Pro to a solid-state drive. This came in extremely helpful as I used it to hold my new SSD while I reformatted it to work with my mac and to install my Yosemite operating system.

MD Harris says:

This was fun to watch honestly, but please don’t turn them all on at the same time like that. That power supply is not as strong or well built as the one in your computer and who knows what the voltage spikes look like when you press all the buttons so fast. I’m just worried you will fry a drive. I would pause for just a few seconds between drives to let them spin up before moving on to the next one.

Thanks!

niceguy60 says:

Esata is a far superior connection when accessing multiple drive attached to the dock as usb3.0 will become more so extremely bottle necked when accessing multiple drives.

I only use docking stations/adapters when cloning hard drives or data recovering. For permanent mounting I use a 4 bay external probox. It also does not sit right with me having the drives so exposed

Luckii YT says:

how do you format a hard drive

Howard Lam says:

how would the loading time be for gaming applications

Simon Roberts says:

For God’s sake – the different plugs on the 3 different power cables are not rocket-science: the one with the round plug and two pins is the easily-recognisable European electric plug, and the other one, with the 3 metal pins is the UK equivalent. Try travelling outside the USA once in a while, it might broaden your experience. Also shouldn’t you perhaps take the trouble to research whether USB 3.0 is faster than eSATA or not, given that you are the reviewer here. And I tuned in specifically for info about the eSATA connect-ability, which you helpfully tossed back in the box. So nul points, I’m afraid!

CariagaXIII says:

pull it out bruh

Murlock2000 says:

as always with americans, they havent seen much outside US before, kinda sad.

Outspoken Wanderer says:

You must never have used multi-hdd docking stations before.  You do not need to eject all the drives just to remove one from your 4 drive dock.  All you need to do is shut the power off to the individual drive you wish to eject while leaving the other 3 power buttons on.  Then eject that drive from the bay you shut off, then swap in another drive and turn back on that particular power button

Ganesh Choudhary says:

What is price of 4Bay docking stationN

parabolicpawn says:

I just do not see the point in all those docks. Id use this to recover/transfer data from an old drive to a new which I can do with one dock. Its not like im gonna have 4 drives runing RAID outside an enclosure.

Wipsplash says:

Good safety measure to have all the HDs eject when safely removing hardware, can’t get mixed up that way and pull out a running HD by accident.

CariagaXIII says:

cool you went to Philippines 🙂

Terry Levergood says:

Segate 7200 Barracuda HDD suck ass d00d. I’ve had so many of them die on my for no reason. Called up Seagate and of course it’s under warranty – so I get a replacement, which lasts about a year and craps out again. NEVER NEVER NEVER buy Seagate ever again. WD all the way!

G POWER DRAGON says:

the two prong plug is just for 240 volts ac for northern Europe Netherlands and Germany I know of

jesus marias says:

Dude too much geek excitement .. seriously get laid man

Steve Mathot says:

Can’t you right click on the drive in “My Computer” and select Eject if you only want one of the drives to eject?

Stephen Davies says:

Thunderbolt 2 vs USB 3.0 vs eSATA: Speed. All three standards are much, much faster than USB 2.0, which tops out at 480Mbps. eSATA can deliver 6Gbps (older versions deliver 1.5Gbps or 3Gbps), USB 3.0 runs at up to 5Gbps and the incoming USB 3.1 should do 10Gbps. Thunderbolt can do 20Gbps.

Kimberly Due says:

I was wrong found it.

ajddavid452 says:

eSATA is external SATA it’s bascially a hot swapable version of sata 3 which is 6 gigabits per second,
USB 3.0 is 5 gigabits per second
for reference a gigabyte is 8 gigabits

Anonymous Maximus says:

Dude u live in ohio ? swear I saw u at jungle jims

parahumanoid says:

Is this thing smart enough to transfer actual data from disk to disk without channeling it though the PC? I wouldn’t know if the SATA protocol in itself is smart enough to do that with devices attached to the same controller. If anyone knows, please do comment.

Kimberly Due says:

No links that i can find

Terry Levergood says:

you missed laptop, laptop, laptop & laptop hahaha
