Sharkoon Unveils SATA HD Dock

Sharkoon Unveils SATA HD Dock

Sharkoon SATA QuickPort:

- USB docking station provides direct access to "naked" or uninstalled SATA hard drives, Compatible with 2.5" and 3.5" drives -

Sharkoon presents a new hard drive accessory, the Sharkoon SATA QuickPort, which provides a direct connection to uninstalled SATA HDDs and makes pre-installation in an external housing unnecessary. The desktop docking station connects via USB 2.0, and allows hard drives to be quickly inserted into a slot in the docking station. A release button removes the drive from the docking station when no longer needed. An external power supply is included. The Sharkoon SATA QuickPort offers space for one 2.5" or 3.5" SATA hard drive. A locking mechanism holds HDDs securely in place, and an appropriately sized slot accompanies smaller notebook sized hard drives.
 
At 575 grams, the docking station is heavy enough to remain securely in place during use, protecting fragile hard drives from unwanted and dangerous movement. Two colour LEDs show power and hard drive access. Included in the packaging are installation instructions, the power supply and an USB cable. Customers can find the Sharkoon SATA QuickPort from authorized retailers for the MSRP of 25 euros ($35 US).

WoW... That would be great for any Technical Support person, and also would come in handy for anyone who doesn't want to be removing the HDDs from their inclosures all the time...

The price seems about right as well ;)

You can just use a cheap external enclosure for IDE bud. That's what I've done for years.
