Technical details

  • Brand Name: Plugable Technologies
  • Model Number: USB3-SATA-U3

Product description

Features future-proof USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 connectivity. Uses the ASMedia 1051E chipset and firmware with UASP and BOT support for maximum performance and features. Open vertical docking bay for easy dock/undock of bare/internal SATA drives. Vertical design significantly reduces desk space footprint compared to horizontal docks. Connect a single 3.5" or 2.5" SATA drive (SATA I, II, & III supported) at USB 3.0 SuperSpeed 5Gbps (5Gbps=640MB/s), up to 10x as fast as USB 2.0. Fully backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1 at their native speeds. Real world transfer rate performance over USB 3.0 will vary by computer host controller and disk drive specifications. Compatible with 512e and 4K Advance Format drives.

Power Management

Power button for powering off drive when not in use. Drive sleeps automatically on OS power events or 10 minutes of idle to conserve power and reduce heat.

Compatibility

No drivers required: uses standard USB mass storage class support already provided in Windows XP through 10, Mac OS X, and Linux / Unix. For USB 3.0 speeds, dock must be connected to a USB 3.0 port. Supports 6TB+ drives on 64-bit operating systems (use drives less than 2TB for 32-bit Windows). Updated USB 3.0 host controller drivers highly recommended for best performance and stability.

Please note:

Samsung 850 EVO series SSDs are not compatible with the ASMedia 1051E chipset used in this docking station.
