Cool New Product: OWC Drive Dock Takes 2 Bare Drives (HDD or SSD) and is Thunderbolt 2!

Get OWC Drive Dock at MacSales.com for about $248.

MPG will be testing the OWC Drive Dock soon.

OWC Drive Dock

OWC has had various iterations of the NewerTech Voyager drive dock for years (USB2 and Firewire, then USB3). It was a good but not great product, and it only took a single drive.

Now the OWC Drive Dock arrives as a much higher grade offering and it’s both USB3 and Thunderbolt 2 (with 2 ports for daisy chaining Thunderbolt devices). And it has an internal power supply (no awkward external power brick).

The OWC Drive dock accepts either 3.5" or 2.5" drives—SSD or hard drives in either size. Bare hard drives and fast high-quality bare SSDs are the least expensive way to expand storage, since there is no enclosure (case) or power supply or cabling involved. With the OWC Drive Dock, just insert the bare drive and go.

Looking for something inexpensive? The NewerTech Voyager S3 satisfies. But it’s much more useful to have two slots, plus Thunderbolt is a big plus for performance with two drives simultaneously, particularly SSDs.

Need big storage at relatively modest price? Stick two 6TB HGSG Desktar NAS drives into the OWC Drive Dock. Or more—just swap as needed. With two slots in the OWC Drive Dock, it’s possible to do a dual simultaneous backup (make a RAID-1 mirror of the pair), or stripe the drives for double the speed (RAID-0 stripe). Or just use singly.

The Ultimate Drive Dock

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 exceptional performance of Thunderbolt™ 2 technology.

An Essential Workflow Solution.

OWC Drive Dock is the fastest way to access bare SATA drives. Hot swap, read multiple drives simultaneously, or boot from bare drives, all at the speed of the Thunderbolt 2 and USB 3.0 interfaces. For video and audio content pros working with multiple bare drives on big projects, Drive Dock delivers extreme transfer speeds with amazing flexibility and convenience, making it an indispensible drive tool.

Designed to Accommodate Your Life

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, eject button, and LED activity monitor. Dual Thunderbolt 2 ports deliver extreme-speed data transfers, and support daisy-chain expansion with up to five additional Thunderbolt devices. Drive Dock also includes a USB 3.0 port for versatile compatibility and the auto-switching internal power supply is compatible with any dual prong cable.

Customized Flexibility

Drive Dock is flexible enough to use on almost any system. 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 USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt cables, the OWC Drive Dock is an essential component to any high-demand workflow.
