5 out of 5 eggsPerfect Clone

This review is from: Unitek Y-3023 3.5" and 2.5" HDD / SSD SATA Dual-Bay Docking Station with Clone Function, USB 3.0 HDD Clone Docking

Pros: Makes a perfect clone, boot record and all, no matter the partition type, very quickly, without having to be plugged into a computer. All it needs is the original drive, a new equal or larger size drive, and power. Perfect for cloning an internal computer harddrive without having to deal with bootable cd software.

I could tell that the single 2TB hard drive in my Buffalo network storage was starting to fail (it had been running continuosly for over three years). The partitions are formatted as RAW, which are not mountable in Windows. My goal was to clone the old drive onto a brand new drive before the old one failed. I had attempted to use both bootable cloning software and cloning software installed in Windows. Both options have historically worked for me, but neither worked in this case. I bought this device to try cloning the drive and it worked perfectly. The 2TB drive was completely cloned in under 7 hours. The newly cloned drive is now plugged in and running like new.

Cons: Not really a con because I knew it when I bought it, but the dock doesn't have eSATA, just USB 3.0. That's getting pretty picky though for such an otherwise great device.

Other Thoughts: If you need to make a clone of any harddrive, this is the device to use.

It is also perfect for upgrading your system hard drive, for instance from a 2TB to a 4TB drive. Keep in mind though if you do this, you will have to go into Disk Management in Windows afterwards and expand your primary partition to fill the empty space on the drive.

Also, one thing to keep in mind: two identical cloaned drives cannot both be mounted at the same time in Windows. So if you clone your system drive onto a new larger drive and then want to still use your old smaller hard drive, you will have to first reformat it in order for Windows to mount it.

5 out of 5 eggscool

This review is from: Unitek Y-3023 3.5" and 2.5" HDD / SSD SATA Dual-Bay Docking Station with Clone Function, USB 3.0 HDD Clone Docking

Pros: Works fast and great as dual SATA external drives.

Cons: Drivers aren't loaded automatically and if you are not very savy could be confusing on loading drivers from CD.

Other Thoughts: Didn't use the clone feature but I will in the future.

1 out of 5 eggsspins up drive. but will not mount

This review is from: Unitek Y-3023 3.5" and 2.5" HDD / SSD SATA Dual-Bay Docking Station with Clone Function, USB 3.0 HDD Clone Docking

Pros: It does spin up the drives you plug in to it

Cons: Unable to mount any drives to an actual computer. Drive spins up, but the USB device does not get recognized (win7 and win8)

Other Thoughts: haven't tried the clone function yet. but given how badly the main function works, I wouldn't trust it.

2 out of 5 eggsKeeps Shutting Off Randomly

This review is from: Unitek Y-3023 3.5" and 2.5" HDD / SSD SATA Dual-Bay Docking Station with Clone Function, USB 3.0 HDD Clone Docking

Pros: Cheap, 2 Drive Bays

Cons: Keeps shutting down when copying large amounts of data. It has a built in feature that puts drives into sleep mode and this is buggy.

It doesnt realize its being used at the time and goes into sleep mode when copying large amounts of data.

5 out of 5 eggsUnitek Y-3023 clone device

This review is from: Unitek Y-3023 3.5" and 2.5" HDD / SSD SATA Dual-Bay Docking Station with Clone Function, USB 3.0 HDD Clone Docking

Pros: Nice oackaging; well made, works as advertised

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: I've only had time to use this with a Windows XP system so far, but it cloned my wife's 1TB drive to a newly formated drive with no problems whatsoever. It is a very slow process though with the off-computer one button cloning, but it did work absolutely perfect after cloned, and all programs ran fine. Expect the clone process to take several hours though on a 1TB drive HDD clone.

1 out of 5 eggsDead On Arrival

This review is from: Unitek Y-3023 3.5" and 2.5" HDD / SSD SATA Dual-Bay Docking Station with Clone Function, USB 3.0 HDD Clone Docking

Pros: None

Cons: Unit was dead on arrival. Received an E-mail from Unitek stating that the device ONLY supported "Offline Clone" and to disregard all documentation that came with it.

Upon plugging in a 3TB Seagate Barracuda ST3000DM001 SATA3 Hard Disk - Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit prompted me that the device drivers were being installed, then were successful; wherein nothing happened. Drive was not recognized, nothing even showed up in the device manager as new. It's a pretty piece of plastic that is essentially a paperweight.

Connecting the drive directly to my motherboard internally via SATA cable recognized instantly.

Other Thoughts: DOA, doesn't have -any- documentation, at this point, an utter waste of my money. Will be requesting a full refund at this point. Very upset.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

This review is from: Unitek Y-3023 3.5" and 2.5" HDD / SSD SATA Dual-Bay Docking Station with Clone Function, USB 3.0 HDD Clone Docking

Pros: This device helped me recover some lost media files that were installed on an EXT4 file system(Linux). All that was needed was a Virtual Machine Via Windows 7 and my data was easily recovered using the UNITEK USB 3.0 Dual-Bay Docking Station with Clone Function.

Works exactly as decribed.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: This seller has great communication. The day I received my package I was sent an e-mail from them stating how their was an error in the instruction manual and they wanted to make sure I was happy with my purchase. Very Impressed by them. I would recommend buying from them.

1 out of 5 eggsNo CDROM included in box

This review is from: Unitek Y-3023 3.5" and 2.5" HDD / SSD SATA Dual-Bay Docking Station with Clone Function, USB 3.0 HDD Clone Docking

Pros: Haven't been able to use it because they did not include a CD with the software on it.

Cons: The manual says you're supposed to install the CLONECD software from the included CDROM in order to clone disc to disc, however there was no CDROM included in the box. I was able to find a download of the software on the internet but I do not have a serial number to install it. Please help.
