Review: Liztek Vertical Hard Drive Docking Station

I know that I’m not a tech expert, and so a few of you might think it’s odd that I’m reviewing a product that is very tech centric, but in some respects its even better that someone like me is doing this review. I mean if I can do it then you can do it. Which is exactly why I decided I could test out the Liztek (I already reviewed their Video Graphics Adaptor) Vertical Hard Drive docking station. 
First off it comes direct from the Amazon Warehouse. Which means that you can pay either with your credit card or an amazon gift card, both of which are very easy to do with no hassle or worries. Then shipping is even easier with four different time options, two of which are free if you have Amazon Prime. When it comes it’s in a white box, and has the product picture as well as loads of information about the Vertical Hard Drive Docking Station. Here’s what the company has to say. 
“SuperSpeed. Versatile. Tool-free. A premium dock for your 2.5″ and 3.5” SATA drive (SATA I, II, & III supported). Uses the ASMedia 1051E chipset and firmware with UASP support and more for maximum performance and features. Supports 6TB+ drives on 64-bit operating systems (use drives less than 2TB for 32-bit Windows). Updated USB 3.0 host controller drivers highly recommended for best performance and stability. 
2.5″ and 3.5″ Drives. 
Due to its unique spring design, this docking station holds both your 2.5″ and 3.5″ drives. Moreover, the SATA interface accommodates all SATA standards (SATA, SATA II, SATA III). 
SuperSpeed up to 5Gbps.
Equipped with both USB 3.0 ports, this docking station delivers SuperSpeed of up to 5Gbps (up to 10x as fast as USB 2.0).Transfer your data in just minutes, instead of hours and have more time to do what you want. Fully backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1 at their native speeds. . Real world transfer rate performance over USB 3.0 will vary by computer host controller and drive specifications. 
Ease of use. 
Instead of complicated screws to work with, our docking station just snaps in place, holding your hard drive firmly and securely. Open vertical docking bay for easy dock/undock of bare/internal SATA drives. Single green LED reports drive activity (solid for power, blinking for drive activity). 
In the box
USB 3.0 to SATA HDD Docking Station (using ASMedia 1051E Chipset), 1m/3ft USB 3.0 Cable, USB 2.0 cable, 24W 12V 2A AC power adapter.”

Verdict: As someone who’s documented a huge piece of their life on the internets, having something to back up my data is a necessity. This Vertical Hard Drive Docking Station is super easy to use and holds a large variety.
