A tool-free dock. Plug a hard drive in like a floppy. Does not support hot swapping, but doesn't need to. Turn it off, plug in a hard drive, turn it on.

Has two front-facing IDE ports.

This is an eSATA dual hdd docking station.

Purchased so my Raspberry Pi and then CubieTruck could have good storage.

Has both a USB and an EIDE connector. I bought it for the latter.

Using two hard drives simultaneously requires a USB port which has "port duplication", a feature which, sadly, my motherboard didn't have.
