Connect one external SATA and one external PATA (IDE) hard drives or SSDs to your Windows, Mac, or Linux system using the Universal Docking Station for Bare Hard Drives from StarTech. While the slot loading design holds the SATA or PATA drives upright inside the dock, SATA and PATA drives can be connected directly through the designated dock slot, the PATA drive connector is positioned near the rear panel 40-pin data and LP4 power connections, allowing users to connect to the dock using the included IDE data and power cables.
This docking station is compatible with SATA III 6 Gb/s, SATA II 3 Gb/s, and SATA 1.5 Gb/s hard drives, as well as PATA (IDE) 66/100/133 MB/s hard drives.
