Rating: 5/5 Drive Twice January 17, 2017 The OWC Drive Dock takes up little desk space, and gives you the choice of adding any size external drive. Each bay has it's own power switch, so you don't have to run both drives if it is not necessary.

Reviewer: b407driver Location: Front Range, CO Age: 45-54 Experience Level: Power User Owned Product: less than a month
Rating: 4/5 Great product December 28, 2016 Does exactly what is says it will do. If you frequently shuffle bare 3.5" drives for backup tasks, this product is super-convenient. A bit expensive for a USB 3.1 interface (thus losing a star).

Reviewer: daveInTexas Location: Austin, TX
Rating: 5/5 A convenient and affordable solution for back-ups November 15, 2016 I no longer have a convenient excuse not to back-up my data and take these back-ups off-site. The OWC Drive Dock makes it really easy to run a back-up, eject the drive and put 1 copy in a safe and another in a safety deposit box.
