2 out of 5 eggsCheap

This review is from: Orico 6518SUS3-BK USB3.0 & E-SATA SATA HDD Docking Station Enclosure

Pros: The horizontal slide in mounting idea is great and convenient. Also supporting 3.0 and eSATA helps boot data xfer speeds.

Cons: Unit cheaply made and more than half of my HDDs wouldn't read which were TESTED and FULLY FUNCTIONAL. The ON/OFF button can't be pressed with finger and I had to use a pen each time. After a while the button jammed and broke.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a decent docking station with 3.0 only look toward BlacX brand. THIS IS CHEAP!

1 out of 5 eggsDocking Stations lost at sea

This review is from: Orico 6518SUS3-BK USB3.0 & E-SATA SATA HDD Docking Station Enclosure

Pros: When all 3 of them fail within the first year and you write a factual review, Orico will send you a single replacement unit. (I told the Orico representative that I'd update my review based on their response.)
Based on the statistical evidence and the manufacturer's response, I won't make the mistake of buying this model again.

Cons: Time wasted in corresponding with Orico rep. I will need to purchase another brand to replace the failed ones for my customers.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

This review is from: Orico 6518SUS3-BK USB3.0 & E-SATA SATA HDD Docking Station Enclosure

Pros: Form factor.
Design

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I own 2 of these for 2 different computers. I really like the horizontal design of these over the vertical ones. I have had multiple vertical docks go bad because the stress of the weight of the drives against the connectors when placed and removed. That is not an issue with this design.

This review is from: Orico 6518SUS3-BK USB3.0 & E-SATA SATA HDD Docking Station Enclosure

Pros: USB 3.0 did work

Cons: E-SATA DOA

Other Thoughts: Could RMA this but it's not worth the shipping expense

5 out of 5 eggsOrico 6518US3-BK, Works Great!

This review is from: Orico 6518SUS3-BK USB3.0 & E-SATA SATA HDD Docking Station Enclosure

Pros: In a year and a half, this docking station has not failed to deliver at least twice the bandwidth of USB 2.0 devices and none of the flakiness of eSATA.

Cons: I was hoping it could deliver the similar throughput as my internal WD Black drives over SATA, but that is not the case.

Other Thoughts: Considering all its pluses and minuses, I like and use this device, it is reliable.

1 out of 5 eggsDocking Stations lost at sea

This review is from: Orico 6518SUS3-BK USB3.0 & E-SATA SATA HDD Docking Station Enclosure

Pros: USB 3.0, eSATA, swapping of hard drives

Cons: Poor quality, low reliability
I purchased 3 of these for customer server backups and my use to test hard drives. Power button failed (physically broke) on one. Next, my unit started failing (USB 3.0 connection). Then one of my customer's started being flakey (eSATA) and now has failed. Now, the last one has become flakey and is not useable as an external backup drive.
These are on UPS power in an office environment.

Other Thoughts: I have other external BlacX enclosures that continue to work reliably. I would not recommend anyone purchasing these unless they needed a disposable unit and didn't care about reliability.
Ownership 1+ year to 7 months.
I am not your usual whiner. My 40+ year career has been supporting computer servers (mainframes) and networks.

4 out of 5 eggsGood quality for the price. Update the device if you have Win8.1

This review is from: Orico 6518SUS3-BK USB3.0 & E-SATA SATA HDD Docking Station Enclosure

Pros: Decent speeds, works with both USB3 and eSATA. Worls with the USB3 turbo boost on my ASUS motherboard for *slightly* better speeds.

Cons: This AsMedia chipset is supposed to support UASP for much faster transmission over USB3, and does not come up as compatible *at all* on my system. Knocked an egg off for that.

Windows 8.1 users are complaining about eSata not working, and they should know this is not a hugh issue as you can simply update the device for this functionality to work. The reason this is rated so low is because of Windows 8.1 users who did not pick up on this fact.

Other Thoughts: Good little device that could have been better but well worth it for the price.

3 out of 5 eggsNeeds firmware update for Win8

This review is from: Orico 6518SUS3-BK USB3.0 & E-SATA SATA HDD Docking Station Enclosure

Pros: Simple to use. Bare drives fit easily. I wanted a sled style like this, but next time I would get a top load that could be used when rails are on the drive.

Cons: Must remove any mounting rails on the drive. Had to update the firmware before Win 8 & USB 3.0 would recognize the device.

Other Thoughts: I stumbled upon a review on a different site that mentioned an available firmware update or I would have ditched this sled. It got a device error on Windows 8.1 with USB 3.0. Even Windows 7 & USB 2.0 would sometimes not recognize a new uninitialized drive. Search for 'Orico 6518US3 firmware update' to get to the Oricoonline site. I found two updates. The first did not work - MPTool. The second one I tried did solve my problems - Prolific. I am deducting 2 eggs for immediately needing a firmware update and the web site not being clear about which update to use. (Although I am quite glad there WAS an update.)

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice dock

This review is from: Orico 6518SUS3-BK USB3.0 & E-SATA SATA HDD Docking Station Enclosure

Pros: Horizontal (flat) layout
High-quality, heavy-duty eSATA and USB3.0 cables
No driver needed AFAICT with my WHS2011 setup
Subtle blue/red power & activity LED
Very stable platform for a heavy 3.5" drive

Cons: None that I can tell at this time

Other Thoughts: I got this dock to try in lieu of the Rosewill RX-DUS100 vertical unit that glitched on me a few times when doing backups. I never could tell if it was the dock or the cable or the software, or the drive (orientation) for that matter. In any case I liked the design of this and am very pleased with the Orico.
