Introduction

External drive enclosures are often one of those things that tend to slip your mind when planning your computer dream system. Well, to be honest, all the best hardware in the world is nothing compared to the value of irreplacable data. We’ve seen too many people lose important data, loses that could have been easily prevented or avoided with a simple backup drive.

Data backup today is more convenient and economical than ever. Costs have dropped considerably, and large-capacity hard drives can be found at very reasonable prices. The only problem with large external drives is that it takes forever to transfer huge amounts of data across a traditional USB 2.0 interface. Thankfully the USB 3.0 interface is gaining more widespread adoption, offering a massive speed boost over both USB 2.0, and even eSATA for that matter.

The Kingwin EZ-Dock2 is a SATA-to-USB 3.0 Docking Station that offers dual-drive capabilities for high speed data transfer and storage. You needn’t worry about a painfully slow USB 2.0 interface here. Perhaps the most appealing aspect of the EZ-Dock2 is its low price; at only $40, it looks like a steal to us.

Can it measure up against a SATA interface though? Let’s find out.

Kingwin was founded in 1992 with a mission to produce quality accessories, solutions, and options for its customers. Its main categories include: external/internal storage solutions, power supplies and thermal solutions. As one of the top producers of high quality, DIY computer accessories, Kingwin is poised to lead today’s market. Kingwin works in conjunction with both impressive PC functionality and user individuality. Kingwin enclosures and mobile rack solutions also continue to be the first choice among consumers world wide. Just as impressive are the high performance Kingwin power supplies which are now certified by Nvidia SLI, 80Plus and have received recognition & awards worldwide. The most recent "Mach 1 Modular Series" continues to sweep the gaming market by storm. In addition to the retailer channel, Kingwin has also gained great success among distributors, OEM customers, system integrators, and VARs.
