The ineo Technology Docking Station

Here we take our first look at the ineo Docking Station. I have placed a Crucial RealSSD C300, a 2.5" form factor SSD, in the dock so you can see the relative size. One thing that stuck out was the lack of controls on the front of the dock.

The Power button was found on the back of the dock which means you will need to reach around to the back every time you want to hot swap drives. For SSDs it won't be that big of a deal, but for platter drives that don't like a lot of vibration, it could turn into a tedious task if running through several drives.

From the side we can see the drive populating the 2.5" drive slot. With larger 3.5" drives a trap door opens and the larger drives slide into place.

The accessory package includes everything you will need to get the dock up and running. We did find an issue with the USB 3.0 cable that came with the dock; it was fairly short and will not fit in some situations.
