Brando USB 3.0 SATA HDD Dock Includes Handy 3-Port USB 3.0 Hub
December 22nd, 2010
Brando has unveiled a new SATA docking station for HDDs. The company is rather known for this sort of gadget that allows the user to dock 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch SATA HDDs and access them via USB like you would a memory card in a memory card reader.
The latest offering from Brando is the USB 3.0 SATA HDD Dock with 3-Port Hub. As you can gather from the name of the product it will dock the HDDs like you expect, but it also gains a three-port USB 3.0 hub. The hub is a welcome addition since you will need more USB 3.0 ports eventually with many boards and machines today only offering a single USB 3.0 port.
The dock ships with the USB 3.0 cable you need as well as the power adapter for running the docking station and the HDD. You can pick one up for $140 (USD) and versions with plugs for the US and all other counties are offered.
