4 out of 5 eggsFast, gets the job done

Pros: 2 bays for the price of 1 from some other brands;
ultra-fast USB 3.0 connection;
no drivers needed with Windows 7/8;
separate LEDs for each drive;
very easy to use

Cons: doesn't work at all if the drive in bay 2 is smaller than the drive in bay 1;
doesn't handle hot-swapping gracefully - best if you power the unit off before swapping drives

Other Thoughts: I realize the drive size issue I mentioned is related to the offline duplicator function, but when connected to a PC it ought to ignore the sizes and just function as 2 independent external USB3-SATA interfaces.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: Zero

Cons: The warranty, zero days labor. The unit delivered to my door fails even to be able to verify an SSD partition is in good shape. Hook the same SSD up directly to the same computer via a SATA connection and the partition checks okay.

Try to use the copy function for an SSD or disk and watch the T-320 sit there and look stupid.

The T-320 has taught me a lesson: don't by Bytecc products. Their products are inexpensive because they are made cheaply and carry zero warranty.

Other Thoughts: The warranty says all there is to know about Bytecc and their products. They put zero faith in the quality of their products. As a consumer, place the same level of faith in Bytecc products.

5 out of 5 eggs  Fan cooling the drives helps for large transfers

Pros: I like it for ease of swapping drives. It's very convenient and a great price. I bought two of them over a year ago, one was a refurb. I like the fancy indicator lights too. I will be buying another one soon.

Cons: If there if going to be a lot of heavy use I Velcro a small square muffin fan at one side on top of the dock, blowing between the two drive slots. Some drives will run hot and the dock will disconnect if not cooled for 100GB + transfers. I don't know if it's the fault of the drive or the dock, but either way blowing a little air over the drives seems to solve the problem. A fan is not needed with only one drive in the dock. I have had two of these docks in use for over a year now. One of them was a refurb and has recently gotten flakey. I'm going to buy another one to replace it.

3 out of 5 eggswindows cannot spin down drives connected by USB

Pros: 1st one DOA.
2nd one in service for 4mos, works as advertised
silent, low profile, no issues

Cons: i would not have bought this item if i had known that these drives (which are used for once-daily backup only) would be spinning 24/7. so now i am looking for a unit that connects by firewire or eSATA.
just keep this in mind when looking for external drives/enclosures.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with dual 3GB drives

Pros: Does indeed work with my new 3GB Hitachi drives

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: As an update to my earlier review, I tested the dual dock with 2 brand new Hitachi 3GB drives. The dock can handle this size, no problem, despite what the specs say.

I am currently getting a sustained 80 MB/ sec going between 2 docks (not between 2 disks in the same dock).

Looking good!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well

Pros: Fast, reliable, low cost. Holds the drives securely in place.

Cons: As with any dock with no fan, the disks can get hot. This has not posed a problem in extended use.

Other Thoughts: I've owned the single drive version for a long time. I then bough a Cavalry dual drive dock that flaked out after 3 months. The BYTECC holds the drives securely, as opposed to the Cavalry.

I am wondering why the specs say it will work with drives only to 2 TB. I see a previous reviewer says he used his with a 3TB drive. Does anyone else have experience with this?
