The new DataPort HotDock is an "expandable" storage enclosure, making it easy to hot-swap as many hard drives as you need with any PC or laptop. Using DataPort 5+ or DataPort 10 removable hard drive carriers, you can quickly access and archive any capacity 3.5" SATA hard drive. Ideal for A/V editing, desktop publishing, cross platform file sharing, data archiving and backup. Plug and Play interface makes installation easy and the DataPort HotDock is hot swappable so there's no need to power down your computer to switch drives. The DataPort HotDock can be positioned vertically and includes a low-noise fan to keep your drive cool.
