    Default IDE HDD Docking station

    Good morning
    I have searched for a docking station so I could use some of my "old" IDE drives for backups.
    The best option so far is here though I'm not sure as it is a site in HK.
    Does anyone know if there are any IDE docking stations available in NZ or close by?
    Thanks

    Why not just use an IDE to USB adapter?

    Because in a similar dock station I can also use my MBP sata drive after the upgrade.

    see this. Ether that or similar so I can just plug in the 2.5 or the 3.5 HDD. This one shown here has also card ports.

    Speedy, yes. Though the problem is, it is for sata only. I may contact the guys to see if there is a chance for IDE..
