5 out of 5 eggsBest External Drive Docking Station EVER!

This review is from: Thermaltake BlacX ST0005U External Hard Drive SATA Enclosure Docking Station 2.5" & 3.5" USB 2.0 & eSATA

Pros: Works flawlessly, TURNS the drive OFF when not used *** only one I have that does this. Very Best performance with eSATA. My 750G WD Black drive is stone cold most of the time and only barely warm when used hard. Heat is the biggest factor that shortens the life of quality hard drives and this product minimizes heat. It's operation minimizes heat! I could not give it a better compliment. Wish I had bought the USB3 when I got it but eSATA works so good is not an issue except when using it with my cloud router that has a USB3 port.Of course the transformer for the power supply runs stone cold! Overall a really great product.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this product to any discerning user and the absolute novice.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertised, great bay.

This review is from: Thermaltake BlacX ST0005U External Hard Drive SATA Enclosure Docking Station 2.5" & 3.5" USB 2.0 & eSATA

Pros: No issues for over a year and a half owning this with a 2TB constantly plugged in. Occasionally the cable would lose signal (about once every few months) so I would have to reseat it, but this is most likely due to how dusty the city is.

Cons: none that i can see

Other Thoughts: Useful if you suddenly realize you are out of bays in your nas/rig to plug in that extra drive. Dependable enough to use for vm source storage.
