The Dual Bay Hard Drive Dock is a simple and easy to use device for using up to two hard drives. Unlike external hard drive enclosures which use screws the Vantec NexStar Dual Bay Hard Drive Dock requires no screws and installs in seconds. It can be used as a permanent external drive or be used for on the fly data swapping.
The plain white design gives it a modern look. Attached to the front panel are the Vantec and NexStar logos along with a power button and HDD activity LEDs.
On the top of the device are two slots, even spaced apart which look like they will fit just a 2.5″ drive. However the plastic flap folds down, with a slight press, to reveal enough room for a 3.5″ drive.
Two buttons on the right side of both slots slide rise up once a drive is attached into the bay. A plain back panel only reveals the power, USB and eSATA connections.
The bottom of the device has four rubber pads to prevent the dock from sliding around. Some important information is also found on a sticker applied to the bottom of the dock.
