If you’re looking for a way to use your hard drives or solid-state drives on your computer or laptop without mounting them internally then the Orico’s SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Storage Docking Stations are exactly what you need and they’re now available through Amazon.com.
If you’re looking to mount only one drive at a time, Orico has several variants available in two main models – one which mounts drive vertically and another that mounts horizontally. All of the variants and models support USB 3.0 while some support eSATA connectivity in addition to USB 3.0. All of the docking stations also support 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch drives as well as SATA, SATA II, and SATA III interfaces. All come with and are powered by a 12V3A power adapter. Using the docking stations are also easy as they do not require drivers to use and support hot-swapping.
Prices for the Orico SuperSpeed USB3.0 Storage Docking Stations start at $21.99 for the single-drive horizontally-mounted docking station with USB 3.0 support while the most expensive single-drive docking station is priced at $25.99 and supports eSATA connectivity.
