Good at cloning, not at "being a dock"
Pros: Nice aesthetics, solid build quality, USB3, easy cloning function.
Cons: 1. No separate switch for each hard drive, like on StarTechs, which are superior to this one, if you are looking primarily for a DOCKING station. You cannot remove only one hard drive at a time (you can always try at your own risk though), without powering down the whole dock. There is only one "Kill switch." This is a real nuisance if you are running one continuous operation (like hosting) on one drive in the dock. You have to shut that down, otherwise you are risking corrupting file partition table on one of the drives.
Other Thoughts: Lesson to take away if you decide to buy this dock (and probably any other dock by this seller "Asian First" or whatever it is:

Nice Little Tool
Pros: Very easy PC-Independent drive cloning. Used it to make backup copies of production machine system drives. If a machine goes down i can now simply load up the clone and get our operators back to work. Much easier than using software based image creation.
Cons: None that I am aware of yet.

Pros: This thing is small! Very astheticly pleasing (fits nicely on any type of desk) Runs without the aid of a PC.
Cons: Does NOT support IDE drives. I was very disappointed at this, as I purchased it to salvage files from some 22 different older drives I have collected over the years.
Other Thoughts: All in all, I don't think I'll be returning this thing. It's going to be very handy in the future, once I get some better equipment.
