PRODUCT FEATURES AND SPECIFICATIONS
One of the great things about this product is that it will accept smaller 2.5” drives as well as full size 3.5” drives. You also have the choice of using the USB or eSATA interface. If you decide to use eSATA, be aware that your eSATA controller must have port multiplier support in order for the OS to see both drives. Otherwise, you can still use eSATA but can only work with one drive at a time.
The docking station arrived in a small box that sports the typical Thermaltake colors and design. Pricing is currently around $50 from online retailers.
So what do you get for your hard earned cash? You get the docking station of course, as well as a USB 2.0 cable, eSATA cable, power adapter, and instruction manual. No hard drives are included in this package, which is usually the case with storage accessories.
