USB superdock reads memory cards and SATA HDDs

ucabl004500-01-l.jpg

This new multi-function dock from Brando not only allows you to read the usual gaggle of memory cards (SD, MiniSD, MicroSD, Memory Stick, Compact Flash, etc) but it also allows you to dramatically plunge 2.5″ or 3.5″ SATA hard drives into it, reading their contents with the ease of a USB thumb drive. The price is $79, but that’s including a heft $25 shipping charge from Hong Kong.

    How many times are SATA drives likely to be dramatically plunged and unplunged before the tiny, tiny pins get bent or broken off?

    A read-only option for all ports would make this device ideal for us that work in digital forensics.

    And in the back, you can plug in the Dead Sea Scrolls!

    I actually could use this. This is a good idea for the roving “fixer of friend and family computers.”
