NewerTech ships Voyager

NewerTech has announced the quad-interface Voyager SATA I/II Hard Drive Docking Station, supporting SATA, FireWire 400/800 and USB 2.0 connections. The dock accepts any SATA-based hard drive in either 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch sizes, in capacities up to 2TB. Upon inserting a drive in the dock and connecting it to a Mac or PC, the drive is detected on a user's desktop via plug-and-play. The dock also supports hot-swapping drives.

The station has an LED power and activity readout, an eject button for removing a hard drive in use, and a weighted base with non-skid rubber feet. It arrives bundled with cables for all four interfaces, and uses an auto-switching power supply, supporting 100 to 240V.

The new docking station is available at Other World Computing for $100. It works with Mac OS X 10.2 or higher, and is also compatible with Windows Vista, XP, 2000, NT and 98.

    rebrand

    It's a re-brand of a common product that costs less than HALF Newetech's price. Google it.

    Most of the cheaper ones have only USB 2.0 port though.

    true

    Yes, I have a Thermaltake brand dock, and it was only $59, but it is USB 2.0 only. I am considering forking over the $ for the Newer Tech model however, because my USB one is just too darn slow.
