5 out of 5 eggsFast & Quiet

This review is from: CineRAID CR-H232 USB 3.0 Dual Hard Drive Clone Docking Station

Pros: Fast data transfer, Quiet

Cons: Very light, USB 3.0 is too short

Other Thoughts: So I'm satisfied with its performance. It is very fast at 3.0 but I wish they provided a longer cord. I had to order a longer cord.

5 out of 5 eggsUSB 3.0 DUAL docking station

This review is from: CineRAID CR-H232 USB 3.0 Dual Hard Drive Clone Docking Station

Pros: Good data transfer rates on my Seagate hard drive. On Sata3 I get 216 MB/s. With the drive plugged into this dock I also get 216MB/s. It does handle two drives at once, but you will take a performance hit if you do.

Cons: Will take a performance hit of about 1/2 when two drives are used in the dock. I was using two Seagate HD units as once and throughput went down to ~80MB/S for both.

Also tried one of my SSD drives in the unit. Normally it gets about 359MB/S on SATA3. It got 166MB/S on this dock.

Other Thoughts: All in all, it is a great unit. I also have another brands Esata and it also has reduced throughput if more than one hard drive. I will likely buy another for my other media PC. Beware that USB3 cable is not very long, it only reaches a few inches past the top of my PC tower unit, but then that is all I need for it to reach.

1 out of 5 eggsCR-H232 Not SATAIII?

This review is from: CineRAID CR-H232 USB 3.0 Dual Hard Drive Clone Docking Station

Pros: Price and current USB 3 PCIe card as bonus.
Dual Bay
Independent cloning with out use of computer? This also means that there is no control on cloning process, it is strictly 1 to 1 clone.

Cons: According to user manual this unit only achieves SATA2 (3GB/s) speeds. "Supports All 2.5/3.5 SATA1/II/III drives up to 1 TB/4TB (SATAIII is running at SATAII speed)" If this is correct then this is really a SATAII dock. SATAIII has speeds of twice SATAII 660MB/s vs 300MB/s. Modern ssd drives can reach over 550GB/s so this drive will bottleneck your system. Nor does it meet USB3 specs therefore I think this is false advertising. It is not SATA3 nor USB3 if it cannot meet the specifications of the standards.

Other Thoughts: Spoke with Wade in Tech support for Cineraid who says they do not state it is SATAIII dock only compatible with SATAIII drives, all SATA drives use the same connector and are backwards compatible, so you still cannot advertise as SATAIII/USB3 if you don't meet specs. Wade also said that NO USB3 docks/drives meet USB3 speeds, this is not true. I think people should look for another company.

5 out of 5 eggsDesktop Drive Dock

This review is from: CineRAID CR-H232 USB 3.0 Dual Hard Drive Clone Docking Station

Pros: Hooked up to USB 3.0 hub on my desktop and started testing it and it so far works better than i thought it would.I can put drives in to see what's on them or can add or remove files.It also makes it easier to test a drive to see if it's in working order.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: it took me quite a few years before i finally decided to try one of these docks.So far it works better than i had expected and has more use's than i would have thought.
