2 out of 5 eggsI was such a fan :(

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

Pros: Compact

Cons: Thermaltake is not the quality it used to be - or I'm having some bad luck with every product I buy from them.

All drives are unreadable on all computers using this device - it crapped out on me after about 15 uses. Missed the warranty deadline.

Other Thoughts: As a side note, the web site looks as cheap as the products produced over the last couple of years. I was such a fan :(

Manufacturer Response:

Cons: Would love an IDE adapter to be included but not really a con

Other Thoughts: Great quality built item. Worked on every computer that we tried it on. Always love the nice packaging. Includes all the cords and nothing more needed to purchase.

2 out of 5 eggsShort Lived

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

Pros: Inexpensive.

Cons: No physical feedback that the drive is seated correctly when inserting drive.

Other Thoughts: Worked very well for 18 months, now the server can't see the drive without resetting. Have to do this every couple of days.

Time to try a different product since it only has a 12 month warranty.

4 out of 5 eggswhat the hell

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

Pros: nothing needed saying here but I will. It is great for moving info quickly from a removed HD to a new PC or laptop or storage drive. very easy to use nothing special in drivers or hardware....unless you use the esata.

Cons: I received this in used condition.I thought I bought it new...no worries never had a major problem with newegg. I put it away until I needed it, now when I need it the power supply cord is wrong and will not work. 10$ to replace it at thermaltake site. I took an egg off for wrong PS. I am using a netgear PS atm to make it work lol.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Ext Bay

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

Pros: Has worked since the day I got it, I use the eSata port mostly. And mostly with windows.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This has found a few drives that don't want to work but the fault is with the drive not the bay. I've used this as detachable using the controller in native mode.

It's never given me a moment a grief and I can pull out and insert drives with out bother.
