If you are a hardware enthusiast like myself, you are always changing out your computer components, sometimes daily, and you need to be able to quickly transfer information from the hard drive of your old system to your new one. Sure you can hook the old drive up in your computer and reboot it, but what if you have multiple disks you need to either pull from or place information on? The best way to do this is with a computer dock that allows you to hot swap drives. Kingwin manufactures a hard drive dock named the EZ-Dock. Today we are going to be taking a look as the EZ-2535W, which is the white version of the EZ-Dock. The docking station gives you quick access to your 2.5" and 3.5" SATA drives. It supports up to 1TB (750GB if Seagate) through either USB or eSATA interfaces for fast transfer speeds.
The EZ-Dock comes packaged in a heavy duty box that protects it while being shipped or carried around. The front and back of the box have different views, including the interfaces on the back and how the drive looks with both a 2.5" drive and a 3.5" drive. The side of the box highlights the features and the specifications of the Kingwin EZ-Dock.
Opening the top of the packaging, you see the dock sitting at the top. Below the dock are the accessories and the CD for the dock. Included with the Kingwin EZ-Dock is the manual, driver CD with backup software, power plugs, USB cable, and eSATA cable.
Now that everything is out of the box, let's take a better look at the dock up close.
