Ineo Technology is around 5 years old and has worked to perfect the design and manufacture of external storage solutions for 2.5" and 3.5" hard drives. Their offerings include hard drive enclosures, NAS servers, USB peripherals, and docking stations. They are constantly looking at their products and improving on them to meet the ever-changing demands of the market.
In this review we will be checking out of their newer dual-drive docking stations. As shown in the promotional image below, the I-NA321U+ looks like their single drive model, the I-NA320U+, except that the new I-NA321U Plus is white, and has dual slots for any 2.5" or 3.5" SATA hard drive. This type of hard drive dock is nice to have if you have multiple hard drives that you need to use for storage, analysis, or troubleshooting without installing them inside your system. Another nice feature of the I-NA321U+ is that you can copy one drive to another without the need for a computer.
