This dual drive SATA HDD Dock provides fast, convenient access to 2.5” or 3.5" SATA (SATA, SATA II, SATA III) hard drives (HDD) or solid state drives (SSD) through either USB or eSATA, without ever having to open a computer case or mount hard drives in an enclosure. Supporting one or two drives, SATADOCK22UE can be connected to the host computer through either USB 2.0 or eSATA - then, it's just a matter of inserting the desired 2.5" or 3.5" SATA drives (or combination of both) into one of the two (or both) docking station slots for instant access.

The docking station supports plug and play installation on most operating systems, making it a perfect solution for data recovery, drive imaging, software testing, or any environment that requires fast access to massive amounts of data (uninstalled or archived hard drives etc.). Plus, SATADOCK22UE features a small form factor design that requires minimal desk space for permanent connection to the host computer and provides enough hard drive surface exposure to optimize dissipation of operating heat.

SATADOCK22UE supports any 2.5" or 3.5" SATA drive and data transfer speeds of up to 1.5 Gbps (using eSATA) and 480Mbps (using USB 2.0) between host and dock - ensuring effortless data dumps or backups and hassle-free file transfers. The inclusion of a high-output power adapter versus other competitive dual drive dock models ensures stable performance for even the latest power hungry high-capacity hard drives. The value of this hard drive docking station can be extended, using a SATA to IDE hard drive adapter (SAT2IDEADP), which enables you to use any 2.5 or 3.5in IDE hard drive in a SATA hard drive dock slot.

  • newegg Dual Slot, Three Ports HDD Dock Equipped with two eSATA ports and one USB 2.0 port, the StarTech SATADOCK22UE HDD dock enables easy and quick access to two 2.5"/3.5" HDDs/SSDs at up to 1.5Gbps (via eSATA) or 480Mbps (via USB) data transfer rates.
  • newegg Ease of Use A top slot-loading design and unique drive ejection mechanism provides hassle-free installation and removal without having to install drives into an enclosure or tray. Power button with integrated Power/Activity LED indicator for each drive allows intuitive, error-free operation.
  • newegg Power Adapter Included A high-output power adapter is included to provide reliable power for large capacity/high RPM SATA hard drives.

1 out of 5 eggsPiece of Junk

Pros: Started out good with separate esata I/Os working well.

Cons: After a year the esata died. Switched to USB, which worked for a few months more then also died. StarTech is now on my "list" of companies that I will never buy anything from again.

Other Thoughts: Good luck with StarTech and their poor quality

5 out of 5 eggsEffective Storage Expansion

Pros: Dock is well-constructed
Simple to use
eSATA ports recognized at 3Gb/s in BIOS

Cons: None worth mentioning

Other Thoughts: I purchased two eSATA docks for my home PCs. One PC uses an extension cable from two internal SATA ports, converting to eSATA in a slot cover; the other PC uses a two-port eSATA PCIe card. I can drop drives into the dock and have them recognized in the OS with no issue. Performance is more than adequate, as I use the docks to duplicate drives with tools like Partition Magic and CloneZilla. I've recommended these to friends and coworkers and have been very satisfied.

5 out of 5 eggsLoving it!

Pros: This is the tops! I am saving so much time at work now that I have this! I used a toaster like this before and loved it so I order one for work and I have it hooked up with eSATA. I guess the USB port works on it I have not used it. USB is to slow for me. I work for a school district and when I have to do something I have to do it then and now. I love how it has 2 spots for hard drives and they both work perfect!

Cons: NONE!

Other Thoughts: Don't use USB and eSATA at the same time they will fight on who is going to do what and never stop so that means that your drive(s) will not show up.

Pros: lol

Cons: DOA

Other Thoughts: How can these manufacturers offer warranties when they can't even manage to get working units to leave the factory?

1 out of 5 eggsStarTech falls short

Pros: It was compatible with all types of drives and was easy to use. It had USB 3.0 and appeared to be a clever design.

Cons: The power button for drive 2 (for PATA drives) would not turn on the hard drive for accessing data, made evident by the dead LED indicator light and silent drive - lack of activity sound. I don't really think it was the switch that was broken, more like an internal circuit, practically impossible to fix. However, the port for hard drive 1, SATA drives, works just fine. I think the quality and workmanship on this product really lacks, and the product is completely overpriced indicated by poor tolerances, play in the connections, and cheap plastic. I will keep it to use on SATA drives, but now I have to fork out more cash for a PATA dock. And it was nice that it would support all hard drives but what good is it if it short-circuits in less than a dozen uses.

Other Thoughts: Don't by this drive dock it sucks because it breaks.

1 out of 5 eggsissues

Pros: I own two of these. Setup is simple.

Cons: I bought one of these a few years ago, and it worked fine. I have since upgraded my drives to higher capacity, and an issue became apparent: not enough power is provided to the hard drives so that they both can run. I am fine if I turn one off and then turn a second on, but if both are turned on at once, they will keep uninstalling and getting recognized by windows as unformatted discs. They spin up, power down, disappear, etc. I have two of these units, and it happens with both. When I called Startech, they first said it was a cable issue, then a power supply issue, and then that both devices were faulty.

Other Thoughts: If I had known this would happen, I would have just saved the money and bought the single bay devices. I think the newer hard drives, (mine are lower power and green and high capacity) just need more juice than the device can deliver.

4 out of 5 eggsThey work

Pros: Takes two drives, has eSATA and USB 2.0 ports.

Cons: If I had to pick at anything, the dock is kind of bulky.

Other Thoughts: Purchased a pair of these for our tech bench at work so we can image and wipe hard disks more quickly than our existing dock-less single SATA/IDE to USB adapters.

Pros: None Yet

Cons: The doors of the docking slots arrived broken. Big disappointment. StarTech can't possibly be a ISO 9001 company.

5 out of 5 eggsNifty little device!

Pros: Allows use of 2 sata drives in a hot-swapable configuration.
esata & USB
2.5" & 3.5" capable
individual drive power

Cons: Each drive has it's own independent esata connection. This may not be a con for some, but originally I thought this enclosure used a single esata connection that supported 2 drives, however, that is not the case.

The package does come with 2 esata cables, but the laptop I'm using this for only has 1 esata connection. So if I need to use both drives at the same time I'll be limited by the 35MB/s speed of usb.

Still not enough for me to drop an egg pun intended :)

Other Thoughts: Good price for multiple drive support, does exactly what it should, lightweight, and firm support.
