We have seen lots of docks where you can plug in a SATA drive turning it into an external HDD via USB or eSATA connectivity. Sharkoon has offered up a new docking station today called the QuickPort Combo eSATA docking station.
The docking station can support SATA drives by plugging them into the dock like a cartridge. Below the SATA HDD slot are ports for connecting IDE HDDs to the docking station as well. The dock connects to the PC via eSATA or USB 2.0 connectivity.
The dock has slots that work for both 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch SATA HDDs. Other features include LEDs to show drive access, required cables and more. The dock measures 71 x 133 x 95mm and weighs 545 grams. The dock is available now for 36.90 EUR.
