2.5"/3.5" USB 3.0 SATA Docking Station / IDE Adapter

A SATA to USB docking station is an incredibly useful tool for any tech geek, particularly for backing up data from systems that are dead or dying. The Icy Dock device has a creative twist: The controller can be detached, making it a mobile adapter with IDE support.

Like most docking stations, Icy Dock's version is a rectangular plastic box with a pair of flaps for 3.5" and 2.5" drives. The power button is at the front while the ejection mechanism, which resembles a piano key, is on the side.

Though the device supports IDE drives, only SATA models can be connected when used as an upright dock.

The AC power jack, and USB port are built into a removable module in the base. The rest of the dock simply acts as a stand.

Pulling the adapter reveals the IDE portions of the device.

Detached from the housing, it is smaller and more versatile, though you still have to lug around an AC adapter.
