SATA III on Plugable USB3.0 Docking Station?

Does the “Plugable USB 3.0/2.0 SATA Hard Drive Docking Station (LucidPort Chipset)” support SATA III (6Gbps) drives?

Hi Zoddoz,

Thanks for posting your question! As SATA is made to be backward and forward compatible you should be seeing no issues. Obviously you will not see SATA 3 speeds, but yes it is going to work.

To get an idea of what speeds you can expect, here is a link to post regarding the USB 2.0 vs. USB 3.0 SATA Dock Performance.

Hope the above information helps! If you need any additional information, feel free to post back here or to shoot us an email at We are here to help!


Thanks, Roze.
