The Galaxy Metal Gear Box 3500SASP is a no frills, dirt cheap external SATA/USB 2.0 enclosure.  The drawbacks to that are obvious, materials and a manual that don't measure up to their more expensive competition, and the lack of eSATA are the prominent ones.  On the other hand, the performance is every bit as good as the more expensive docks, and the extra cash you save can be translated directly into a bigger HDD.  AnandTech can tell you a lot more about this dock in their full review.

"GMG Inc. has been providing a variety of drive enclosures since 2000. Galaxy Metal Gear Box provides several

external drive enclosure designs with an emphasis on USB 2.0, Firewire (IEEE 1394), and SATA interface technologies.

They are utilizing their enclosure expertise to expand their product portfolio and are now offering Digital Media

gateway products.

We will be taking a look at the 5202 Galaxy series in the near future that offers internal drive support for either a

standard 5.25" Optical drive or a 3.5" hard drive based on the SATA standard. A variety of interface options are

available including Galaxy's first eSATA implementation."
