I like this docking station because it has a cover.

That might be nice protection, but I'd be concerned about drive temperatures for some HDDs. I only use mine for laptop backups, so a cover isn't useful.

You don't have to close it while you're using the dock but you can close it when it's idle to keep the dust out.   I had to make a little cardboard cover for my dock, I like the idea of one that's built in (or at least provided with the dock, even if it's not attached by something like a hinge).
