Sharkoon Intros DriveLink USB 3.0 SATA Dock

Sharkoon rolled out a nifty little gadget that gives you quick and fast access to HDDs, SSDs, or pretty much any SATA device. The DriveLink USB 3.0 from Sharkoon is quick to snap on to any SATA device with its standard SATA link/power connector, and gives fast access to it over USB 3.0. The device supports HDDs with capacities up to 2 TB. Measuring 58 (L) x 56 (W) x 21 (H) mm, the device connects to its host using a USB 3.0 cable (backwards compatible with USB 2.0, as well), and powers the drive and itself using a 12V DC input. It also includes a one-touch backup feature. Using the bundled backup software, users can quickly sync/backup data between the host and the drive at the press of a button. The DriveLink USB 3.0 from Sharkoon is priced at €21.

thats actually pretty cool. i wish it enclosed the drives as well instead of just connecting to the rear, however.

Hmmm might get one of these, or a docking station.

So apparently there's 5.25" SATA HDD's or do they mean DVDrw / BDrw drives as I do believe the last 5.25" HDD i saw was an old 4.3 GB Quantum Big Foot and if I remember correctly it was IDE...
But this looks like a good addition If you've already got an SATA or PATA dock I wonder how long they'll take to arrive in NZ

The package and marketting says "2.5", 3.5", and 5.25" SATA drives" not SATA hard drives.
