5 out of 5 eggsVery convenient! Very FAST!

Pros: Fits both 2.5" and 3.5" drives. Uses two separate USB 3.0 ports. Made my life so much easier when backing up customer hard drives or doing drive imaging. Could not be happier with this product. Sits right on top of my main server and gets a lot of use.

Cons: NONE.

1 out of 5 eggsCan't use 2nd slot

Pros: meh

Cons: The rearmost slot shows a red light for all drives I tried and the second drive never shows up. Am I (and the other person who posted with the same problem) missing something?

4 out of 5 eggsThe Really Good USB3.0 Storage Dock

Pros: This is by far the best USB3 storage dock that I have used. It offers 2 hard drive connections, each of which has its own USB3.0 connection.
The hard drive eject work, although not gracefully.
Only need one power cable for two hard drives, which is a Deity-send for computer geeks who never have enough power outlets.
Very good speed in data transfers, both read and write. As good as any other USB3.0 I have used and pretty much as fast as eSATA.
Looks nice, if not the great.

Cons: -1 Star - What's with no power button? Instead of hitting the power button to let the hard drives spin down and then cool, I have to actually pull the plug, which is a pain, and you never know if you'll get a surge when you do that.

Other Thoughts: Love the fact that it can handle two drives, gives each drive a dedicated USB3.0 connection, uses only one power connection, and is very speedy.

Hate the fact that it doesn't have a power button to make it simpler to turn off power to the drives.

4 out of 5 eggsNice simple/speedy storage dock

Pros: * Dedicated ports for concurrent speedy transfers.
* Has worked without issues hooked up to multiple USB 3 controllers (Intel, TI, etc.).
* Supports both 2.5" and 3.5" drives.
* Great for ad-hoc tasks like cloning to/from another drive, wiping drives, etc.
* Good deal when on sale and bundled with a PCI-E USB 3 controller card (although I've never used the bundled cards).

Cons: It's one of the few gadgets I own that's white, and the only one on my desk that isn't black.

Other Thoughts: I've been running one of these for 8 months now. I have another that I purchased last year that I'll hook up to my home server.

This thing would also be even more awesome with more SATA connectivity options like mSATA/NGFF (the latter of which didn't even exist when this thing was made).

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I own *2x [two] of these! bought for $60 (wouldn't pay much more than that but still better device than others in this and similar product categories here and elsewhere!)

*dumb* device...all configuration is handled by software utility from their website, on CD with device too, which communicates directly with PnP/USB driver and storage device objects in Windows (best I can tell) giving Eggcellent performance

dedicated channel\cable per bay!

clearly labeled bays and ends of cables

easy insertion and literally effortless locking\ejecting

Cons: not really a huge issue, worth mentioning that stock USB 3.0 cables with this product are "permanently bound together" thus initially preventing scenarios where "Bay 1 plugs into computer 1", ditto for Bay 2, without an extra cable (which I thankfully had already)

1 out of 5 eggsNo drive sleep or spin-down, no power button

Pros: Fast, non-chained arrangement

Dual-USB cord is a good idea but too short for many uses.

Cons: They do not spin down, even after unmounting. Drives are sitting there red hot 100% of the time.

There is no on/off button to shut it off, either. A waste of energy and money.

I inquired with customer service as to why there was no spin-down even after the USB cable is unplugged and they said "because the power cord is still attached."

Other Thoughts: Not a great value when you consider the other dual USB 3.0 docks out there for around $30.

4 out of 5 eggsBoth Slots Working AOK!

Pros: Speed is good; RocketStor is very convenient for backup.

Cons: I had to re-install WHS 2011 and use NVidia drivers for the chipset instead of the XFX that came with the 705i SLI motherboard.

2 out of 5 eggsOnly 1 Slot Working

Pros: Simple, straight forward device. I installed this with the RocketU 1022A.

Cons: After several attempts only the #1 slot is working on my Windows Home Server 2011 system. I verified that the device is working (both slots) with the drives I'm using on my laptop (switched drives and cables). I can only test 1 slot at a time on my laptop.

Other Thoughts: The driver downloads as a rar file; so you need to download 7-zip first.
I added this as an issue on 1/10; we'll see how fast HighPoint responds.
