Sharkoon Intros SATA QuickPort Quattro 4-Drive Dock

Sharkoon rolled out its take on a four-slot HDD/SSD dock, the SATA QuickPort Quattro. The device lets you connect up to four SATA HDDs or SSDs in 3.5" or 2.5" form-factors, like inserting cartridges into ye olde video game consoles. Measuring 285x165x95 mm (LxWxH), the dock, the dock weighs a little over a kilogram. It connects the drives to a host system over USB 3.0 or eSATA 3 Gb/s. There are separate power buttons that let you activate/deactivate individual drives, as well as individual power/activity LEDs. The unit is cooled by two fans, the speed of each fan can be adjusted manually. Sharkoon SATA QuickPort Quattro will be priced at around €99.

I just leave my case side panel open and just plug in drives as/when I need them.

Anyone else do this?

My cable management's too optimized :laugh:
I like this, would be very useful for me. Too pricey though, I'd go for the 2-drive version (if it exists).

I really don't think it's going to be much quicker to do.

Just plugging 2 cables after all : ]

^ Perhaps if I had any free ports, but all eight are taken :)

A friend of mine that does directing/producing for indie movies would find value in this. Several drives are passed around the editors, and he's not the most technical type. Can see it now... him trying to swap drives in and out of his system, then a puff of smoke when one of the power leads touches a solder point :D

At my house, I would likely find a cat sleeping inside my open case....

Hell I don't even know where my side panels are! :laugh:

I like this, considering I have about 2 TB of HDD's (about 7, and 3 in my case right now)scattered around my office and I'm always looking for files.

I like it... Too bad I just bought an external enclosure with USB 3.0 and eSATA about 2 weeks ago. :(
