OWC Drive Dock

Back in late 2015 MPG reviewed the OWC Drive Dock. That version of the OWC Drive Dock offers both Thunderbolt and USB 3.1 gen 1 connectivity. But because of the high cost of Thunderbolt-based peripherals, its about $240 price tended to make it more of a product for professionals.

OWC has now released the OWC Drive Dock USB 3.1 gen 1 model for about $75. MPG has not yet tested the USB 3.1 gen 1 version, but performance should be identical when using the USB port (that is, almost as fast as the Thunderbolt port).

  • Two drive bays each accommodate 2.5 or 3.5-inch SATA drives
  • USB 3.1 Gen 1 port
  • Read up to 434 MB/s, write up to 406 MB/s
  • Supports drives up to 10TB or greater
  • Mac & PC compatible
  • Each bay features an independent power switch and LED activity indicator
  • Universal auto-switching internal power supply
  • Professional aluminum enclosure
  • Two year OWC Limited Warranty including award-winning technical support
  • Includes 24-inch (.6m) USB 3.1 Gen 1 cable

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.

OWC Drive Dock: Thunderbolt + USB3 Connectivity Using Dual Bare Hard Drives or SSDs

The OWC Drive Dock is an excellent solution for anyone needing to work with bare hard drives or SSDs for backup or similar. For example, videographers who need to download and backup SSDs in a single portable solution.

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, swapping drives as needed. For example, inserting two bare 6TB HGSG Desktar NAS hard drives into the OWC Drive Dock delivers 12TB of capacity at low cost. Swap more drives as needed.
