Complete Convenience
No tools, no drivers, no enclosure disassembly… just instant, effortless Plug and Play drive use and swaps. A built-in power supply eliminates the bulky, power brick hassle. Just plug the OWC Drive Dock’s standard dual prong power cord into an AC outlet and you’re ready to enjoy the incredible convenience of this quiet, fanless data access solution.
Safe and Efficient Swaps
Whether you are churning through many drives or performing archival backup, you can swap drives safely with the OWC Drive Dock. With each drive bay having its own power source, you can perform bare HDD handling best practices by powering off the desired bay and waiting for spin-down before removal. You can also leave a drive docked in an unpowered bay for immediate access while saving electricity or putting powered-on hours on the drive.
Retask M.2 “Blade” SSDs
After upgrading your machine with a higher storage capacity NVMe M.2 SSD like an OWC Aura, you can retask your existing M.2 “blade” SSD for continued storage uses in the OWC Drive Dock via an M.2 to U.2 adapter like the OWC U2 ShuttleOne. Or, buy a new M.2 drive and use the OWC U2 ShuttleOne to build a high-performance on a budget U.2 SSD that can be hot swapped at will in the OWC Drive Dock.
Expand Your Possibilities with the U.2 Innovator
