    Cheers Andy. I'm also interested in this product category, and I've tried a few, so thought I'd add my tuppenceworth.

    For whatever it's worth, CnM's own website doesn't seem to list a USB 3.0 version of their Hard Drive Docking Station. (Also, it seems to portray newer, less tacky-looking, and more Mac-compatible versions of its USB 2.0 Docking Station than the one you've identified that's currently sold on Aria.)

    I wonder - do you have reasons to suspect that CnM's USB 3.0 Dock (if and when it comes out) will be any better than the USB 3.0 dock that Aria does currently sell, which is a Sharkoon model:

    (N.B. Aria also sell the Dual-HDD version of that Sharkoon:

    Being a Mac user (and a MacBookPro user, at that, so I can't even install a USB 3.0 ExpressCard) I've no use for a USB 3.0 dock [yet], but I can swear by this Voyager Quad-interface model (USB 2.0, Firewire 400/800, eSATA) from Newertech:

    It's the best HDD dock I've yet used, and I'm about to start a thread suggesting Aria stock it.

      I forgot, there's also this ICY BOX USB 3.0 Docking Station on Aria (albeit it's currently out of stock, whereas the Sharkoons are in):

      Again, I'm curious whether you're specifically seeking the CnM one because you dig the brand or some such? The only CnM product I have is an external DVD recorder and it's pretty sound.

        Jeez, I ALSO just noticed this Akasa Dual-HDD USB 3.0 Dock on Aria (though, again, it's currently out of stock):
        http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=42156

        I'd missed that one because its title doesn't reveal that it's USB 3.0, and you actually have to click through to the product page find out that this is the case. If it comes back in stock I suggest Aria amend the title in the listing so that (like the other listed USB 3.0 Docks) it says "USB 3.0" up front!
