Brando 3-in-1 Data Dock Saves Case Space With Multi-Use Trays

Illustration for article titled Brando 3-in-1 Data Dock Saves Case Space With Multi-Use Trays

For those of you with desktop PCs crammed to the gills with peripherals, this slot-loading data dock from Brando might be a neat space-saver solution. It takes up just one 3.5-inch drive bay, but has three interchangeable sleds: one for 2.5-inch SATA HDDs, one with a 4-way USB hub and one a multi-type card reader. You simply chose which you need at the time, and slide it into one of the two slots. Cleverly each aluminum-frame sled also functions as an independent USB peripheral, making them pretty useful portable accessories too. Available now for $69. [Brando]

This looks somewhat promising, but lacking. First, please explain how you use the CF slot in the docking bay without using it as an external USB device. Second, this really needs 2.5" SATA support else it's going to lose out on a lot of sales nowadays. As the previous poster mentioned, UDMA support and extra HDD sleds would be nice as well.
