The AXP 2.5/3.5

Conclusion

To conclude, the AXP Combo dock is certainly a useful product in that it allows users to easily install extra hard drives (by simply slotting them into the dock) without any hassle. This is especially significant to users that have few or have used up all of their SATA connectors and need an alternative way to connect up a HDD.
In testing, we showed that the eSATA values are certainly providing a challenge to the usually much superior straight SATA. Naturally this is a good thing as it will encourage users to use this connection more if they require it.

However, on the down side, the USB results were less than satisfactory and so I would not recommend using this form of connector for this particular product. Also, please note that the power supply for the dock has a European plug and so will require an adapter in order for it to be used in UK mains electricity.

Overall, if you need an easy, sturdy way to attach an extra HDD, the AXP 2.5/3.5″ SATA to eSATA & USB Combo Station Block is certainly worth a look.

Good eSATA results Poor USB results
