Finally! I've always wanted the choice between mounting my HDD or SSD in a horizontal or angled vertical position! :wtf:

Decent price for a USB 3.0 dock, let's just hope it's built well.

Docks are so overrated. I've never been in a situation where I've considered using a dock, I have used an external USB hdd before and it was a hassle. I learned that network storage is much easier and alleviates additional problems other than just storage space.

Still waiting to use USB3.0 :(

This one doesn't look durable enough compared to whats already out there.

Yea, sounds good for a Kindle or a Nook, but a harddrive? :wtf:

Other than that, USB 3.0 and everything, looks good. Wonder what US pricing will be.

I tend to agree, but Scythe IMO anyways usually has a decent quality for what your paying.
