The AXP 2.5/3.5″ SATA to eSATA & USB Combo Station Block
The dock itself is extremely sturdy with a flat oval-shaped base – definitely no chance of it falling over with a hard drive attached. The cut out is intended for 2.5 inch drives but as both 2.5 and 3.5 inch drives have the same connectors it can be used for both. The only other feature on the top is a large blue LED which lights up once the product is powered up.
The top flap or ‘trap door’ is spring loaded and the connectors that allow the two different drives to be used can be seen; the HDD simply connects straight on to these.
The back of the block is where all the ports are situated – at the bottom. These are the DC input, then the USB plug and finally the eSATA connector. Also, located on the back is a power (on/off) switch which allows the unit to be turned off without having to remove the power cable.
The blue LED on the top lights up as soon as the unit is plugged in.
Finally, the bottom of the AXP Combo Station Block has a simple sticker incorporating the product name and serial number.
