Which kind of docking station is the best?

by electronicfans / December 3, 2013 2:10 PM PST

I have paid attention to docking station at Inateck for a few months; also I am urgent to find some docking station to port my hard disk. Now the Inateck is posting a big Xmas sale about docking station and USB hubs, it seems that the deal gives much cheaper price than other online stores, I wonder whether it is right time to buy one and have a try. Can someone give me some advice? I don't know which one to choose. http://www.inateck.com/christmas/

You have one HDD?

I'd get some USB 3.0 case and be done with it.

I prefer docking station for its stability.

Why not?

I ran into a few that didn't work so be sure to test them as you get them. That and buy at places that will take it back.

the difference between external enclosure and docking statio
by electronicfans / December 9, 2013 9:25 AM PST

I have seen an external enclosure in Inateck. As an idiot of those hard drives, can somebody tell me the difference between external enclosure and docking station?

In short there's no electrical difference.

But if Inatech won't talk to you then it's a make you should avoid.

It's clear from your posts they won't talk to buyers or offer support.

But they don't answer questions.

This means that Inatech is not a company that you want to buy from.

-> As this appears to be a spam thread, I'm calling it now and it is no closed.
