5 out of 5 eggsHelpful tool!

This review is from: Thermaltake BlacX 5G ST0019U ABS Plastic 2.5" & 3.5" Black SATA I/II/III USB 3.0 Docking Station

Pros: For when your old computer fails, you have to pull out the hard drive (that still works), plug it in and salvage the data. This is a very handy tool to have around. Also for those dirty old extra SATA drives lying around, for extra storage. Semi Portable and really easy to use, literally plug in as any other external drive and it is ready to go. You can even hotswap to other HDDs while it's turned on.

Cons: Very fragile. Do not drop in water, step on, or even drop, it will break. Not so much of a problem with me though.

Other Thoughts: Still haven't found USB 3.0 very much useful, that is just my opinion though.

5 out of 5 eggs4 TB Support (response to "Robert B.")

This review is from: Thermaltake BlacX 5G ST0019U ABS Plastic 2.5" & 3.5" Black SATA I/II/III USB 3.0 Docking Station

Pros: Supports 4 TB hard drives (I have used WD & Seagate)
No problems swapping internal and dock-based drives
No dropped transfers

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Robert B. - Don't quite understand the problems you had with this dock. I have been using 2 of these for quite a while and often format 4TB drives in the dock, transfer data (large and small files), then install the drives internally. Absolutely no problems. I have experienced higher transfer rates with these docks than with any other manufacturer I have tried (Ineo, Rosewill, IcyDock).

1 out of 5 eggsDoes NOT support 4TB

This review is from: Thermaltake BlacX 5G ST0019U ABS Plastic 2.5" & 3.5" Black SATA I/II/III USB 3.0 Docking Station

Pros: Great for drives up to 2TB

Cons: Does not support 4TB+ drives

Other Thoughts: I have 2 5G docks and 6 other Blacx docks so I am/was a fan. I read a previous review with a statement from the mfgr that it does support 4TB drives. This is false. I tested it with a 4TB HGST and 4TB WD Red, neither work. If you power the 5G on and off several times you may be lucky enough to get the Disk Management snap-in to start without hanging which happened for me once in 10 attempts. I managed to get the HGST initialized but then it could no longer be accessed at all, just spun and hung. BTW, this was done with a USB3 connection on a year old computer with the latest firmware and chipset drivers. After wasting 2 hrs with the 5G I dropped the drive into the computer and saw that the partition table was corrupted. After fixing the drive with DiskPart I was able to get it working in the computer in 2 minutes.

I think that Thermaltake is really behind the curve on docks. Poor support and charging a premium price for old tech. Look else ware if you want to dock a 4TB+ drive.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Izzy9999,
We at Thermaltake apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused you. Tested ST0019U with WD 6TB green drive, no problem found. Please contact our customer service team about this matter.

5 out of 5 eggsSo much better than the 2.0 model

This review is from: Thermaltake BlacX 5G ST0019U ABS Plastic 2.5" & 3.5" Black SATA I/II/III USB 3.0 Docking Station

Pros: Excellent xfer rate. Getting consistently 130-140MBps on my Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H system with WD Black HDDs.
I also like that they have the blinking LED in the front while transferring. So much better than my Rosewill USB 2.0 dock!

Cons: Fairly lightweight plastic housing, but who cares? It's not like you're going to be throwing this in a laptop bag and dragging it an airport every week. I'd rather the lightweight and cheaper price point than heavy base and an extra 10 dollars.

Other Thoughts: Great dock, very functional and A++ speed.

5 out of 5 eggsThermaltake BlacX 5G USB 3.0

This review is from: Thermaltake BlacX 5G ST0019U ABS Plastic 2.5" & 3.5" Black SATA I/II/III USB 3.0 Docking Station

Pros: Just want to clarify the "4 TB" issue with this dock. I have owned 2 of these since 2012 and wanted to be sure that (a) they support 4 TB harad drives, and (b) any 4 TB hard drive which is formatted IN THIS DOCK will not suffer corruption issues when subsequently mounted inside the PC and attached to a USB 3.0 port on the motherboard. I emailed Thermaltake tech support and posed this issue. Their (VERY timely) response was
"On Tue, 17 Jun 2014 13:02:12 -0400, Support - Thermaltake USA wrote: Dear xxxx, ST0019U can read HDD up to 4TB in size and will not cause any data corruption. You can format the drive with the docking station then use the drive as a secondary HDD. The BlacX is mainly used to transfer data only. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to ask. Thermaltake USA Customer Service 1-800-988-1088 M-F 9:00AM ~ 5:30PM (P.S.T)"
This has been a reliable dock during the time I have owned it. I also have Rosewill and Ineo USB 3.0 docks, but prefer the Thermaltake docks. Never a dropped connection and fastest overall transfer speeds. I will now be replacing those other docks with additional Thermaltake BlacX 5G, since the other ones do NOT support 4 TB drives (per the respective websites and my personal experience). Hope this helps anyone who is wondering about the 4 TB issue.

Cons: None whatsoever

5 out of 5 eggsGood USB3 Disk Dock

This review is from: Thermaltake BlacX 5G ST0019U ABS Plastic 2.5" & 3.5" Black SATA I/II/III USB 3.0 Docking Station

Pros: Works out of the box as intended. Low cost, better construction / operation than competitors for better price point. Comes with everything needed to operate right in box.

Cons: None yet with unit, used on 12 SATA drives to sanitize data before return to recycle plant. Has worked as specified every time.

I question the rubber sleeves sent with the boxed unit, have not seen reason to use as of yet. Nice touch with power button on top where you can easily reach it.

Other Thoughts: If you are having issues with drives not being recognized, check to make sure you are using USB3 rated cables, USB3 connection / port on computer. To resolve vibration issues get a cheap neoprene mouse pad to sit it on, usually find them for a couple of bucks if not free...

If your computer supports "hot swap" drives it will remove read / write delay from SATA and USB connected units Sill a good idea to "eject" the drive before removing from dock.
