The versatile SDOCKU33EBV UASP-enabled USB 3.0 / eSATA docking station makes it easy for you to connect and swap 2.5in or 3.5in SATA III hard drives (HDD) and solid state drives (SSD), with the option to connect through either USB or eSATA.
For convenient compatibility and time-saving performance, the SDOCKU33EBV docking station can be connected through USB 3.0, with support for full USB 3.0 bandwidth (5 Gbps) as well as UASP, which delivers performance up to 70% faster than conventional USB 3.0 when paired with a UASP-enabled host controller. For fast performance and efficient data transfers, the dock also supports the full SATA III bandwidth of 6 Gbps when connected through eSATA. See our UASP testing results below for further details.
With support for large capacity SATA I/II/III drives (tested up to 6TB), as well as 2.5in or 3.5in drives, this HDD/SSD docking station makes it easy to maximize the storage/backup capabilities of your computer using virtually any SATA drive.
Extend the value of this hard drive docking station further with the addition of our SATA to IDE Hard Drive Adapter (SAT2IDEADP), allowing easy insertion of any 2.5 or 3.5in IDE hard drive into a SATA hard drive dock.
To ensure compatibility with your computer system, the SDOCKU33EBV supports all of the leading operating systems, including: Microsoft Windows® (8/7/Vista/XP/Server 2008/Server 2003), Apple® OSX (10.9/10.8/10.7/10.6), Linux, and Google Chrome OS™.
The SDOCKU33EBV is backed by a 2-year StarTech.com warranty and free lifetime technical support.
Improved Performance with UASP
UASP is supported in Windows 8, Mac OSX (10.8 or above), and Linux. In testing, UASP performs with a 70% faster read speed and 40% faster write speed over traditional USB 3.0 at peak performance.
At the same peak in testing UASP also shows an 80% reduction in required processor resources.
Testing results were obtained using an Intel® Ivy Bridge system, a UASP-enabled StarTech.com Enclosure, and a SATA III solid state drive.
