Pros: Worked and performed great initially.

Cons: Died after 2 years. Just quit.

Other Thoughts: Buy Thermalake instead. My 8 year old single bay still works great.

1 out of 5 eggsWas a good product

Pros: Worked for about 2 months

Cons: and then fried a drive and does not work at all since then.

Other Thoughts: I would send it in for warranty but I cannot chance this happening again. As a matter of fact, almost anything else going wrong is better than what happened, and should be safeguarded, and I will just trash it and never buy Kingwin again.

It may have fried two, but cant confirm, because drive may have been bad, was about to test before it trashed an ssd.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid

Pros: It was nice while it worked.

Cons: After 6 months, this thing started sending power surges. It has fried two of my drives (the resistors right off the power pins are totally melted). I'm now having to spend $50 to get replacement PCBs for the drives so I can get my data off. I'm throwing this thing in the trash.

2 out of 5 eggsQuality Concerns - Rotten Support

Pros: Low Price.
2 Bays.
USB 3.0

Used in conjunction with Rosewill 2-Port USB 3.0 PCI Express Card Model RC-505 - bought at same time.

The power button feels more robust than those on the BlackX product from Thermaltake (which this new unit is meant to replace).

Cons: 2 failures in 4 months.
Toturous RMA process & poor service.

Other Thoughts: Equipment failure on day 31 so i was forced to complete my RMA through the manufacturer instead of the pleasure of dealing with Newegg. Failure was the same both times - unit would work fine at first, then it would power up (and spin the drive) but my system wouldn't recognize.

Kingwins website has a RMA page that is about as frustrating and arcane as i have ever seen. Completed RMA via phone (after leaving several messages) - they sent wrong model. Replacement 2 was the correct model, but I had now taken an entire month from my initial request to get it -- and it died a week later.

My RMA requests went unanswered for 3 weeks, and it took Kingwin another 2 weeks to get me the replacement.

Almost 6 mos. after my initial purchase, I have finally lived with this product for over a month. I can say that i do like it very much, and its FAR superior to my previous BlackX units. That is, if it lasts.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Addition to my Desktop

Pros: Purchased this Hard Drive Dock as a way to get around hard drive enclosures, E-SATA, having cable ends breaking and corrupting drives, slow USB 2.0 transfers, etc. This Kingwin HDD is a godsend!! I just leave it on my desk plugged in, turn on the switch in back and pop in a drive - fast and ready just like that!! When I'm done, I use the Windows 7 "Safely Remove Hardware and Eject media" function in the right side of the taskbar, and then pop out the drive.

Cons: Just a forewarning - do not plug in a second drive after the first one is working, it instantly will kick out the first drive and remount both of them afterwards. I found this out the hard way! Had to re-encrypt and rebackup a drive because of this causing 6 hours of downtime.

Instead, Plug them both in at the same time if you must, or use the WIndows 7 USB Remove device in taskbar to remove the first, power off the Kingwin HDD and then add both in and power back on. Just a heads up to keep something like the event I had happening from anyone else.

Otherwise runs flawlessly!!

Other Thoughts: I've used the following drives in this HDD:
Samsung F3 1TB/7400 - ran cool and fast
Samsung F4 2TB/5400 - ran cool and fast
WD Caviar Black 6401 640GB/7400 - ran a little hot but fast

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic USB 3.0 Dual Dock!

Pros: IMHO, the body design for this dock is the best Ive seen/used (Owned 3 other docks b4). The dock as a whole is made sturdy and has a small foot print. The LED indicator in front is dim so it doesn't glare into ur retina when being used.

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: My sustainable write speeds with USB 3.0:
Single Drive ~ 100MB/s
Dual Drive ~ 50MB/s x 2
