>> Dong Ngo: Hello my name is Dong Ngo and this is the USB 3.0 hard drive docking station from Ineo. This is one of the first if not the first hard drive docking station on the market that support the USB 3.0 standard. On the back here you'll find the the only USB port that can be used with both USB 3.0 and USB 2.0. Unlike other docking stations, the I neo doesn't support any other connection types such as fire wire or ESATA. To make up for this, it's compact and affordable costing just around 4 to 5 dollars. It's very easy to use this unit just connect it to a computer via USB port, turn it on and insert the SATA hard drive on the top. After that the computer can access the hard drive after it was connected internally. The Ineo support both laptop and desktop SATA hard drives. Its top slot has a spring load latch that keep hard drives any thickness in place. It doesn't however support the OIDE hard drive standard. In our testing the Ineo docking station performed very well with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0. If you're a system builder, technician, or just happen to work a lot with internal hard drives, the Ineo docking station is a must have especially if your computer has a USB 2.0 port.
