13p less at Scan:p

But I'd avoid this product as the LAN port is only 10/100 and not Gigabit, so it's pretty pathetic for a NAS.

Its pants you can buy a NAS for not much more and its a rubbish make.

so cold

Such docks are great for quickly swapping and connecting multiple drives to a single machine, or by using a few, transferring between and using with multiple machines.

However, I see very little need for a dock on a LAN. Using these as NAS is a bit risky. They may be open but that doesn't mean it deals with heat very well. Such devices aren't reliable for prolonged use in my opinion. I wouldn't risk it anyway.

Having slated the item in question, it would still be nice for ignorant cold voters to understand the difference between this and the other non-LAN docks they keep referring to before judging.

I have the Sharkroon Quickport Pro (Non-Lan Version)
FYI
The build quality is excellent, Sharkroon are not a 'rubbish make' .
#11
I have this and use it to occasionally connect internal hard disks to my NAS (via eSATA) for extra storage or backup.

The big problem is that in order to access the device across the LAN, you need to install software on each PC that is going to access it, which isn't something I'm keen on. So in hindsight, I may as well have bought the one without the LAN feature.
