The EZ-Dock has a small footprint, which makes it ideal for your desk, especially if you are limited in space. The front of the EZ-Dock has two LED's, one for the power and one for the hard drive activity, and the "Back Up" button for fast, one-click backing up of your files. On the back of the dock is the power button, the power plug port, the eSATA port, and the USB 2.0 port. You can only have one connection at a time, not both; it has to either be USB or eSATA. Looking down on the dock you see where the hard drives get inserted; there is a port with the SATA and Power plugs together. There is no guide for 2.5" drives like the Thermaltake BlacX has, so use caution when inserting them so that you do not damage your drive.
Here is a shot of a 3.5" drive inserted into the dock; notice how it sits upright and is secured in place. There are no fans or heatsinks to keep it cool; it uses ambient airflow to take care of the cooling instead.
Let's install the software and start getting on with the testing.
