Sharkoon have introduced an interesting product for PC enthusiasts that allows you to plug SATA hard drives into an external enclosure – without the need to screw into a drive bay. It looks just like a HDD docking station, you can plug/remove drives at any time and access the data on your PC via USB cable.

As computers are upgraded it is inevitable that spare SATA drives will start to mount up, and yet there isn’t enough space to attach them to most motherboards. This solution lets you quickly access drives when required, saving the hassle of swapping drives inside your PC with the power off. You can use 3.5” or 2.5” drives without the need for any screwdriver or tools.

The contents of the box include the QuickPort bay, Power Adapter, USB Cable and a small quick start guide:

It is immediately noticeable that the drive bay is constructed to a high standard, a compliment which cannot be given to all drive enclosures. The SATA QuickPort is constructed from a matte finish plastic, however it feels extremely solid and sturdy. Of course this does not affect the overall performance of the unit, but it contributes somewhat to a quality product.

The rear of the unit features an on/off switch, a power socket and a USB connection:

The front top of the unit includes a quick release button (to remove the hard drive from the dock) and an oval HDD status indicator:
