4 out of 5 eggsGood product, some flaws

Pros: Small, fast, gets the job done. I bought four (4) of these for a total of eight (8) drives. The eSata is as fast as internal drives. It's great to be able to put all this storage online with such ease.

Cons: Con #1 - Hot-Swap? If you power on with one drive slot empty you can't later insert a second drive without power cycling the unit. (You don't have to reboot your computer). This can be a problem if you are 3 hours into a 6 hour file copy on the first drive.
I don't know if this is a limitation of the eSATA port multiplier spec or just the implementation, but from what I read other hard drive docking stations have the same limitation.

Con #2 - The power cord from the unit to the power brick is too short to reach the floor even from the edge of the desk. The heavy hanging power brick pulls the lightweight docking station and tips it over. From the power brick there is another longer cord to the outlet.
Silly engineers. Didn't you ever try to use your device from a real desk instead of your workbench?

Be prepared to put a shoe-box or something under the desk to hold the power bricks up.

Other Thoughts: Be aware your eSata controller has to support port-multiplying, which mine and most do these days.

Get the excellent HotSwap! utility at http://mt-naka.com/hotswap/index_enu.htm to safely remove eSATA drives from Windows.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes Have ESata

Pros: I love mine. Works like a champ. I ordered mine back in November 2009 and it has both ESATA and USB ports. If you go to the manufacture website it shows you that. This also a disk duplicator without the need for additional software or connections to your pc.

Cons: Wish it was free...
