Sharkoon makes for easier HDD swapping

SATA QuickPort for naked drive

| Storage News | Posted: Dec 4, 2007 11:01 pm

Sharkoon has just announced a new hard drive accessory they call the SATA QuickPort. This device is effectively a USB docking station which works by simply sliding a SATA based HDD into the dock to gain instant access to the drive via USB2.0 connectivity to the PC. What's also particularly handy is that it'll support both 3.5" and 2.5" sized drives.

 

Compared to your typical external caddy, this is a much MUCH easier solution if you're regularly plugging in different HDDs to your system for temporary access.

 

Sharkoon mention in the press release that the SATA QuickPort should be available in stores anytime now at a cost of just 25 euros (around $37 US).

 

Sharkoon presents a new hard drive accessory, the Sharkoon SATA QuickPort, which provides a direct connection to uninstalled SATA HDDs and makes pre-installation in an external housing unnecessary. The desktop docking station connects via USB 2.0, and allows hard drives to be quickly inserted into a slot in the docking station. A release button removes the drive from the docking station when no longer needed.
