SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Cirago International, a leading manufacturer of multimedia centers, storage and wireless solutions, today announced the launch and immediate availability of its exclusive new CDD2000 USB 3.0 Hard Drive Docking Station. As one of the first SuperSpeed USB 3.0 devices of its kind on the market, the CDD2000 allows home and business users to keep legacy hard drives in service for quick and easy access to archived data or expanded storage options.

Featuring high-performance data transfer of up to 5 Gbps, the CDD2000 supports both 2.5" and 3.5" SATA I and II hard drives with plug-and-play ease and hot-swappable convenience. The sleek, contemporary design of the dock is unobtrusive on the desktop and its compact size makes for a small footprint.

"The USB 3.0 docking station is ideal for anyone who wants to upgrade their PC, but keep the hard drive—and all its stored data—accessible on their new machine," said Dean Basilio, Vice President of International Sales and Marketing at Cirago. "With the docking station, you just drop in the old drive and it's immediately accessible for additional storage capacity or accessing data stored on the drive. And, because it features the latest USB technology, it offers high-performance speed for quick and seamless access."

With literally tons of obsolete PCs sitting idle or being tossed into land fills, the Cirago CDD2000 makes it possible to extract even more value from existing hardware without keeping the entire PC tower sitting round taking up valuable desk space. Eliminating the expense of purchasing an enclosure for each hard drive, the Cirago CDD2000 not only helps to save money, but also reduces electronic waste. By essentially "recycling" hard drives, companies can use the Cirago CDD2000 to help meet sustainability or "green" operating objectives.

Unlike other manufacturers, each Cirago CDD2000 docking station comes with its own USB 3.0 cable and a UL®-certified power adapter for added reliability and safety. In addition, the CDD2000 is FCC, CE and RoHS certified. The Cirago CDD2000 has a suggested retail price of just $49.99 and is available at major electronics retailers.

To achieve the full benefit of USB 3.0 SuperSpeed technology requires USB 3.0 capability on the core machine. The CDD2000 is also backward compatible with the USB 2.0 and 1.1 standards.
