5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Flat design. 3.0 USB. Accepts 3.5" and 2.5" Hard Drives / SSDs

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have 2 vertical docking stations. I liked this one because it's horizontal for a spot where I had a height restriction. What I like about docking stations is that for storage that you don't need to access regularly, you can turn them off and reduce the hard drive wear which leads to failure.

5 out of 5 eggsBest HD Dock I've used

Pros: I've had this for over a year now and I couldn't be happier. Used both the USB and eSATA ports, both work flawlessly. It's like having a HD inside the computer except all the heat is on the outside. Plug play on both Windows 7, 8 and 8.1.

Cons: Only drawback so far is when I power down everything (computer, ect...), once a while it has trouble getting back into my system. A quick reboot and all is better. Noise from the hard drive can be loud now that the HD is not inside the case.

Other Thoughts: This is a great device. I use it for normal system files, mainly for everything that doesn't go on my small SSD. I have most of my Steam games going to this device.

1 out of 5 eggsDid not work

Pros: Nice looking with good power supply.

Cons: DOA. I waited a couple months before I plugged this thing in, and after about an hour I finally figured out it was bad from the box. I hate that. I will try out the warranty stuff.

5 out of 5 eggsI am amazed!!

Pros: I wasn't sure what type of quality to expect at the comparatively low prive paid for this drive enclosure but I was very surprised with what I received. You can buy a "name brand" (think Seagate or Western digital) USB 3.0 External Drive with "X" number of GB or TB and that's what you will get - in a plastic case, or you can get this Orico unit for less than $35.00 and put whatever size bare-bones drive up to 4 GB in it's ALUMINUM case (dissipates heat so much better than plastic), turn the key and it's LOCKED inside. Need to back up the kid's laptop? pop the drive out of the case, put a drive (let's say you only need 500 MB for the job at hand - you can get a 500 GB drive for $30 or $40 - Pop it in, back-up the laptop, put another bare-bones drive in the enclosure and copy all of your videos, music documents, clone your desktop drive - you name it - the possibilities go on and on, and when you need more room, its there for the cost of the least expensive, bare bones drive that fits your size needs.

Cons: The only thing that I can think of is that it would be a nice touch if there were a fan inside the enclosure as temperature insurance, especially in an overly warm ambient temperature.

Other Thoughts: Personally, I think that this will be one of the most well used accessories that i have. It's like having a whole cabinet full of external drives at a fraction of the cost of an "out of the box" external.

5 out of 5 eggsIt Works

Pros: Works as advertised. I have many hard drive enclosures but purchased this because of USB 3.0 and convenience. Just slip your drive into the slot and plug into PC.

Cons: none yet.

3 out of 5 eggsCould be very nice.

Pros: Easy attachment to either 2.5 or 3.5 sized SATA Hard drives. Computer recognized it very quickly with no extra drivers. The horizontal design makes it very secure on your bench or desk.

Cons: This device could have been a 5 egg had it had a good power on-off switch. It is very flimsy and sticks often because of its recessed design. You will need a pencil close by to operate it or unjam the switch.

Other Thoughts: Because of the bad design of the power switch, I would suggest leaving it on and use the power cord to turn it on and off. Because it often dose not make or break smoothly, it will cause switch arcs and that is NOT good for any hard drive.

4 out of 5 eggsDocking station works well

Pros: Good price and seemingly well built. Was detected by system fast and without problems.

Cons: A nit-picking problem is that some may have difficulty removing a drive from the station.

1 out of 5 eggsFollow up to my previous review

Pros: USB 3

Cons: Everything else

Other Thoughts: If you read my previous review you will see that the power button broke on this adapter after the third use. The button is junk and is destined to fail.
I was contacted by the seller to resolve the issue. Their plan was to send me another power button so I could repair the device myself. Yeah, right!
Like I told the seller, I am cutting my loss and moving on. If you are considering buying one of these, don't.
