Inserting and removing both 2.5 and 3.5 SATA hard drives is easy. Simply slide drives gently into the top of the docking station, with your drive's SATA connectors aligned. No force necessary. Drives will automatically attach and rest on the SATA connector and even leave a little space for airflow around all sides. There's even a power switch on the back of the Plugable Technologies dock that allows it to be turned on/off independently. For some reason, many docks don't have a power switch.

Ciphertex, the leading secure, portable data storage systems provider was awarded the coveted Black Diamond Award for their CX-10K-NAS (Network Attached Storage) at this years NAB (National Association of Broadcasting) show held in Las Vegas, Nevada April 14 19, 2012.
The new 10-bay portable CX-10K-NAS system is aimed at providing extremely high performance secure data storage for on-set and near-set productions including TV episodic, commercial and post production digital cinema workflow applications.
The CX-10K-NAS is a compact, rugged and portable storage system with a capacity of up to 40TB eliminating the need to handle bulky sets of hard disks. This offers photography and production directors and producers the ability to rapidly transfer their RAW digital camera footage into a secure, portable NAS storage system for direct ingest to a near-set production cart or to be used for secure shipment to a post facility for further processing. The CX-10K-NAS delivers a sustained transfer rate of up to 1,000 MB/s and 100,000 IOPS, easily accommodating three streams of 1080p24 at 16 bit RGB, three streams of 2K x 1,556p24 at 16 bit RGB or one stream of 4Kp24 (RED) at 10 bit RGB. Security is guaranteed by the highest standard AES 256-bit encryption, ensuring that the data cant be pirated or stolen. Moreover, the CX-10K-NAS being VMware ready, Citrix XenServer ready and Windows Hyper-V complaint, can simultaneously provide storage for IP-SAN (iSCSI) and NAS file sharing implementations and allows for extremely fast data transfer directly to any PC/Mac near-set production system via eSATA, USB-3 or network via its 10GbE interface.
The CX-10K-NASs ability to act as an extremely fast shared file folder for Windows, Mac and Linux OS platforms coupled with its high reliability and compact portability make it the ideal storage system for on-location shoots, said Jerry Kaner, president and CEO of Ciphertex. Huge time and cost savings are achieved since the CX-10K-NAS can directly connect to a near-set production system (with applicable GPU accelerators, DVD burner, RAID storage, NLE (Non-Linear Editing), color timing and transcoding software), allowing on-location ingesting, transcoding and monitoring of the RAW footage in real-time, applying first pass color correction right on location and even burn a Blu-rayTM disc for full resolution dailies with the viewing LUTs (Look Up Tables) applied. Acting as a shared storage device connected to an NLE system via a 10GbE/GbE switch, editors can be moved on location to begin editing scenes an hour or two after dailies have been created saving additional time and money.
"The ever-increasing market adoption of our secure data storage technology is a testament of our ongoing commitment to providing the best-in-class portable and fixed storage solutions for business critical environments where security, portability, speed, reliability and I/O versatility are key requirements, concluded Kaner. We will continue to drive innovation with industry leading products like our new CX-10K-NAS and CX-R12K-NAS while further investing in our technological leadership to better serve our customers.
