Drive Dock is the ultimate, high-performance bare drive access tool. For creative workflows, backup, or other tasks requiring constant access to multiple drives, Drive Dock delivers a compact, easy solution with the performance of a USB 3.1 Gen 2 interface.
OWC Drive Dock is the easiest way to access bare SATA drives. Hot swap, read multiple drives simultaneously, or boot from bare drives.
For video and audio content pros working with multiple bare drives on big projects, Drive Dock delivers amazing flexibility and convenience, making it an indispensable drive tool.
Drive Dock's unique design makes hot-swapping a breeze. Two drive bays accommodate both 2.5" and 3.5" drives and can access a drive in each simultaneously.
Each bay features its own independent power switch and LED activity monitor. Drive Dock uses a USB 3.1 Gen 2 interface with data rates up to 981MB/s for versatile compatibility and an auto-switching internal power supply compatible with standard dual-prong power cables.
Drive Dock is flexible enough to use on almost any system and is compatible with Thunderbolt 3 ports. It works perfectly as an on-location backup solution, or for industry professionals using multiple bare drives.
Featuring rugged aluminum construction, quiet, fanless operation, and complete with both a USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C cable and a USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C to Type-A cable, the OWC Drive Dock streamlines high-demand workflow.
Like all OWC products, Drive Dock is built to the highest standards of reliability and performance. Because our goal is always 100% reliability, it's rigorously quality tested, and backed by our 2 year warranty and award-winning U.S. based Technical Support.
