5 out of 5 eggsthree year review

This review is from: Thermaltake BlacX N0028USU External Hard Drive SATA Enclosure Docking Station 2.5" & 3.5" USB 2.0

Pros: have had this for over three years. has worked perfectly every time i have used it. i dont keep it hooked up as its mostly for backup images and videos. works exactly the same for regular hdds and for ssds... i have both and swap occaisionally. all products should be this reliable. i just throw a little towel over it to keep the dust off and its ready when i am.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsIt works

This review is from: Thermaltake BlacX N0028USU External Hard Drive SATA Enclosure Docking Station 2.5" & 3.5" USB 2.0

Pros: It works. Its easy to use. I use it for backup. I use it pull data off of replaced disks (usually have to boot up in Safe mode to do this)

Cons: Big adapter.

Other Thoughts: Too easy to kick. Maybe it should be heavier or have rubber feet or some strap to secure the hard drive. I suppose I could wrap it in a bungee cord if I was really concerned.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat extra tool to have available

This review is from: Thermaltake BlacX N0028USU External Hard Drive SATA Enclosure Docking Station 2.5" & 3.5" USB 2.0

Pros: Works great. If you need to access a 3.5 or 2.5" drive you are golden. I like the lever to eject the drive. Nice touch. This beats hanging drives off of cables.. Would purchase again.

Cons: Not USB 3.0 but for the price.. You can't have everything.

5 out of 5 eggsDocking Station

This review is from: Thermaltake BlacX N0028USU External Hard Drive SATA Enclosure Docking Station 2.5" & 3.5" USB 2.0

Pros: Great for getting data of hard drives from machines that have died.

Cons: Its a pain to have plug it in and have cables going everywhere. The usb cable it came with could be a little longer.

1 out of 5 eggsNOT GOOD!

This review is from: Thermaltake BlacX N0028USU External Hard Drive SATA Enclosure Docking Station 2.5" & 3.5" USB 2.0

Pros: Simple design and as indicated in the documentation a easy to use device. A customer needed something for an old hard drive SATA HDD I suggested this.

Cons: Lights go on - nothing, Power is on Nothing, Drive whirs up and then down nothing, this device is worth nothing. It wasted my time and my customers.

Other Thoughts: Support is not helpful = the device should just work I build systems using Thermaltake components (cases, PSU's, Fans, etc..) this is just bad.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,
We at Thermaltake apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
Please contact Customer Service to troubleshoot this issue.

3 out of 5 eggsdo not buy, unless you like to handle bare harddrives wit hno protection.

This review is from: Thermaltake BlacX N0028USU External Hard Drive SATA Enclosure Docking Station 2.5" & 3.5" USB 2.0

Pros: Easy to switch

Cons: No storage place to put bare hard drives or there is not a protection sheath included either.

Other Thoughts: burned my hard drive IC chip, made it smoke really bad and melted it. I was always storing it in electrostatic proof bags but even then it still managed to get zapped. I dont reccommend any swap device that isnt enclosed due to accidents, im out 300 gb of blue ray!!!

1 out of 5 eggsNo power

This review is from: Thermaltake BlacX N0028USU External Hard Drive SATA Enclosure Docking Station 2.5" & 3.5" USB 2.0

Pros: N/A

Cons: Brand new out of the box won't power up. No lights, nothing.

Other Thoughts: Test this out when you first get it. I put it aside until I needed it assuming that such a simple device wouldn't have any issues. By the time I took it out of the box and plugged to discover it was DOA the 30 day return policy had expired.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well, easy to use

This review is from: Thermaltake BlacX N0028USU External Hard Drive SATA Enclosure Docking Station 2.5" & 3.5" USB 2.0

Pros: Handles the many SATA drives I've taken out of service because of age and even one that wouldn't boot but I can access the files when I put my Vista computer in safe mode.

Cons: Once early on, I had to reseat the drive to make it connect but have not had that problem again since.

Other Thoughts: If you have unconnected SATA drives laying around, this is a must have. A convenient way to have external backup.

2 out of 5 eggsQuality control is bad, but not as bad as customer support

This review is from: Thermaltake BlacX N0028USU External Hard Drive SATA Enclosure Docking Station 2.5" & 3.5" USB 2.0

Pros: Attractive design, solid construction. Indicator LEDs make it easy to tell when the dock is powered on and hard drive is active. I've used quite a few different drives with the dock, both 2.5" and 3.5", and all fit snugly and worked fine.

Cons: Power button is located on the back of the dock, a minor inconvenience. The dock uses a standard-size B-type USB cable, the same kind that most printers use. Accordingly, I was surprised when mine came with a micro-USB cable instead. I hooked it up with a cable I already had, but contacted ThermalTake's customer support to see if they could send me the correct cable. Exactly 2 weeks later, I finally received a brief response with instructions on how to connect a USB cable. As if that was the issue.

Other Thoughts: Learned by accident: computer may not boot if dock is connected and powered on with no hard drive inserted.
