OWC Introduces Drive Dock with USB 3.1 Gen 1

OWC, a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company, today introduced a new version of the Drive Dock with USB 3.1 Gen 1 connectivity. The new Drive Dock offers exceptional performance with speeds up to 434 MB/s, two drive bays (each supporting 2.5 or 3.5-inch drives) and an internal auto-switching power supply for use around the globe, all in an elegant design featuring a silver aluminum enclosure and a matte black top. For anyone with bare drives around the house or office, Drive Dock is the ideal solution for a quick and easy way to access their data, archive files, and perform backups.

“We’ve been thrilled with how our customers have responded to the OWC Drive Dock with Thunderbolt 2 technology. I’ve seen how it can transform professional workflows, and it has driven us to make sure that as many people as possible can experience the same benefit,” said Larry O’Connor, Founder and CEO of OWC. “I am pleased to introduce the new Drive Dock with USB 3.1 Gen 1 connectivity, giving our customers exceptional performance at a price that is accessible to everyone.”





OWC Drive Dock, featuring USB 3.1 Gen 1, delivers extreme transfer speeds with hot-swappable convenience, making it an essential tool for video and audio content professionals working with multiple bare drives. It’s the perfect solution for video ingest, editing, or making copies of dailies on location. With two bays, the Drive Dock provides the capability to simultaneously access two drives at once, or swap one drive while the other is in use. This added flexibility is possible because each drive bay features a dedicated power switch and LED activity indicator, so you can work quickly and easily without compromising your personalized workflow. The internal auto-switching power supply makes the Drive Dock perfect for those who travel and want the peace of mind knowing they can access their bare drives wherever they are.
