Sabrent's latest product is a USB-C to dual 3.5-inch SATA and RAID docking station that supports solid-state or mechanical drives.

The new Sabrent DS-2BCR is compatible with 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch SATA II disks and backward compatible with SATA I and II. For safety, it includes a locking key to prevent accidental removal of the hard drive trays during operation.

Other features

The docking station works with solid-state drives or mechanical disks in single mode or a RAID array using the two removable trays. It supports RAID 0, RAID 1, and sequential JBOD.

The USB-C port supports transfer speeds of up to 1,000MB/s, and another port can read and write CFast 2.0 cards with rates up to 550MB/s. For SD UHS-II cards, it can read and write data at up to 270MB/s.

The station is made of aluminum and has a built-in fan to help extend the lifespan of the disks. On the front, users will find a USB-A 3.2 expansion port.

Pricing & Availability

The docking station is available on Sabrent's website and through Amazon, although the price and shipping information isn't yet known.
