5 out of 5 eggsIts so nice to have this!!

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

Pros: USB 3.0 and eSATA
Horizontal positioning
ON/OFF power switch
Great for testing HDD's

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I like this tray approach to a dock. It feels natural to have the drive sitting horizontal. I've been getting great speeds with the USB 3.0 connection, making drive copy wonderful.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for what it Needs to Be!

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

Pros: It's plug n play, literally. Insert USB 3.0 cord in USB 3.0 Port. Insert HDD. Turn on (very easy, firm push with index finger), and voula! You have easily recognized HDD which gets assigned a drive letter.

Transfers are fairly fast. I've never had any lost data or corruption. It's perfect for what I bought it for.

Cons: I haven't found any, other than HDD can get hot during extended transfers because it isn't actively cooled. Usually you get what you pay for, and this is better than it's price would indicate. Possibly transfers could be a slight bit faster.

Other Thoughts: I have used this to back up multiple data drives from my server. It has also been used to clone 3 HDD's that only have games on two different computers when I needed larger hard drives and didn't want to re-install the ones I already had on the old drives.

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.

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.
