The Easiest Way To Access Data From ANY 2.5″ or 3.5″ Serial ATA (SATA) Drive Up To 4.0TB!
Boot and Swap drives at will!
Whether you're on a data recovery mission or just want to check the contents of an older swapped out drive, the NewerTech Voyager is the easiest, most convenient way to access data from any Serial ATA (SATA) drive.

Just insert any standard 2.5" or 3.5" SATA I/II drive into the compact docking base and plug and play into any Mac® or PC for the fastest data transfer performance. Then, start reading and/or writing data to the docked drive. There's nothing else to install or configure!
Saves Time & Money
With its Plug and Play design, the Voyager saves you the time of installing a drive into a computer or the cost of an external enclosure. Now you can think of bare SATA drives with the same convenience and instant access benefits as flash memory cards... but with the huge gains in storage capacity!
Hot-Swap Ready
Have multiple drives you need to access? No problem, Voyager's unique design makes hot-swapping SATA drives a breeze. And the eject push button safely disconnects either size drive for quick and effortless removal.
Ideal Solution For Photographers & Videographers
Instead of needing multiple enclosures and power supplies for every archived drive, Voyager makes accessing your valuable data a breeze. Just slide in your drive, find the desired image or clip, and then return the drive to your storage safe.
Truly Plug and Play
High quality USB 3.0 connection cable included, an auto-switching power supply for worldwide compatibility, and flexible operating system compatibility, the NewerTech Voyager can travel your data universe with ease.

Rating: 5/5 Saved me some pain June 10, 2011 One of G-Drives started acting up. Sometimes it would mount and sometimes not. I couldn't tell if it was the drive or the drive electronics. I removed the drive from the case and inserted into the Voyager. Voila! I have access to all my data.

I would recommend this item to a friend!

*Use of eSATA interface requires system reboot in order to recognize drive

NOTE: Voyager only accepts SATA interface drives (show connector) If you have IDE/ATA interface
drives (show IDE), we recommend the NewerTech USB Universal Drive Adapters.
