3 out of 5 eggsNo Longer Working on OSX 10.11.4

Pros: Easy to use. Relatively inexpensive, when I purchased it on 02/02/16. Seemed to work properly

Cons: I bought 2 units. one for my basement computers and the other for my office computers. I used the one for the office only on my late 2013 12 core Mac Pro. It worked fine at first. I tried to use the unit today on the Mac and it would not mount the hard drive. I brought up the second unit and the same thing happened. I connected both of the units to my Windows 7 pc. After the drive was discovered and the Windows driver loaded, both units worked properly. Specifications for the unit stated that they would work on my Mac operating system. What happened?

Other Thoughts: I searched for Mac drivers on the Orico website. When I clicked the link, I got a 404 error. I guess there are none.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks perfectly

Pros: Great for using with my Wii U
Docks both 2.5 and 3.5" HDDs

Cons: 2.5" SATAs still need power supply to work even when USB is connected
The power button is...flimsy
Removing the drive can sometimes be difficult, no eject mechanism

Other Thoughts: I bought this because I had a bunch of 2.5" SATAs laying around the house that I figured I could use as storage. It works perfectly on my Wii U without having to spend a ton of $ on an external HDD with its own power supply. The power button can be rather flimsy, but I made up for that by simply keeping the power button on and simply unplugging the dock. Also I don't quite understand why 2.5" SATAs still require you to plug in the dock to the wall even with USB connected, but other than that it works fine for the 15 bucks I spent.

1 out of 5 eggsI should have listened to the reviews

Pros: I liked the design and shape

Cons: This thing damaged my volume headers on two hard drives. Much of the time the drives would not appear in windows or linux. It would not work on my laptop at all. All it would do is connect and disconnect. The driver this thing uses is not all that great.

Other Thoughts: It seems there is a risk in receiving a defective item from them. Their QC is not up to par. I recommend buying from another company.

Thankfully, Newegg gave me a refund and I bought an Anker sata adapter which works perfectly fine.

2 out of 5 eggsPoor components.

Pros: Power button and open top allow easy hard drive swapping.

Cons: After only a month and a half of owning this the power button wouldn't stay on, made reading/writing to my HDD impossible. Not a terrible product, just shoddy components. If you're looking for something like this, spot for a better brand.
