Want to access the data on your bare SATA drives but hate the hassle of opening case and troublesome setting? Look no further, the Thermaltake BlacX Duet hard drive docking station is a great solution.
Equipped with two 2.5" & 3.5" compatible drive slots, this docking station can conveniently take two drives at a time and is able to read & write 2 hard drives simultaneously. Hot-swap support means you can exchange multiple hard drives rapidly, without disconnecting the station or reboot your computer. A USB 2.0 port and an eSATA 3.0Gbps connector ensure fast data transfer, as well as great compatibility with various systems.
Drives Continuously Need Reformatting
Pros: It's a toaster. It's cheap.
Cons: Unreliable. Flimsy. You have to reformat the drives every couple days of use.
Other Thoughts: I've had these for about two years. I bought ten 2TB WD drives to use as backups, and I got this toaster, so I could rotate them easily. I leave the drives in the toaster for about a month, running backups daily, then I rotate them out with another set. I use Robocopy to run the backups.
Did you find this review helpful?
Cons: Newegg did replace the first one with another one, but the replacement somehow corrupted my 1tb drive that I had been using in the single drive unit from same mfg. I even bought a new controller that the mfg recommended with "Port Multipliers"! Now its totally dead with no lights, along with my drive! The old single drive unit still working fine with other drives!
Other Thoughts: Its not worth another 10 bucks to ship back to Newegg or Thermaltake, in the garbage can it will go, along with the drive it corrupted that is now so bad the bios wont read the model anymore even with a regular sata port and cable! New controller works ok with other drives and the old single drive unit!
