OWC announced today the availability of its refreshed OWC Drive Dock. Designed to be the ultimate high-performance tool for creative workflows, backup or other tasks requiring constant access to multiple drives, the OWC Drive Dock delivers a compact and easy solution with exceptional performance.

The OWC Drive Dock supports up to two, simultaneous drives and connects to any Mac or PC with the latest USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port for data rates of up to 981 MB/s; or connects to any Mac or PC with an available standard USB port for data rates of up to 522 MB/s. This new dock can support both 2.5-inch drives, 3.5-inch drives, a combination of both, and can even RAID drives together for data redundancy or performance. The OWC Drive Dock includes an auto-switching internal power supply compatible with a standard dual-prong power cable and no extra power block.



OWC Drive Dock key features:
  • USB-C (USB 3.1 Gen 2) connectivity
  • Dual drive bays supporting both 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch solid state and hard disk drives
  • Mac, PC and Chrome compatibility
  • Premium aluminum enclosure and quiet, fanless operation
  • Independent power switches and simultaneous operation
  • Internal auto-switching power supply, no external power
  • Sustained data rates of up to 981 MB/s Write
  • Includes connecting cables for both standard USB and Type C/Thunderbolt 3 equipped systems
The new OWC Drive Dock is excellent at home while being robust and rugged enough for professionals with demands for heavy drive swapping, data ingestion, or as an on-location backup solution. Like all OWC products, the OWC Drive Dock is built to the highest standards of reliability and performance, is rigorously quality tested, and backed by OWC's 2-year warranty and 24/7 Customer Support.

I want to mod a front panel on my case where my extra 5.25" bays are to have cartridge style loading of sata drives like how this looks. Forget watercooling nonsense. I want better usability by utilizing that front area of the case and not having to open a side panel to swap drives around.
