ICON Loading...

Pay attention to this powerful, functional hard drive docking station! Through the Rosewill RX-DUS 100, any SATA hard drive is turned into an external storage device in minutes. The dock supports all 2.5 inch or 3.5 inch SATA hard disk drives of up to 2TB. Thanks to the huge storage, you needn’t wrack your brains to determine which one should be deleted in your favorite movies, music, photos and precious documents.

eSATA and USB 2.0 interfaces are both available for offering high speeds up to 3Gbits or 480 Mbits per second, respectively. This flexibility allows you to use your hard drive at its full performance where eSATA is available and still has the option of using USB where eSATA is not available. The dock station is hot-swappable, letting you plug and unplug the unit without needing to reboot.

3 out of 5 eggsFaulty switch

Pros: Supports USB and eSATA. Convenient for switching between multiple drives.

Cons: Switch won't stay on.

Other Thoughts: This would have been a 5 star product. The docks we purchased worked perfectly for our backups while we've had them. Then the switches started going bad. When on, they're supposed to latch in the ON position. After a period of time, though, the latching mechanism gives out. I can sometimes get it to stay on with liberal applications of duct tape, but, really! If they can improve the quality of the power switch, they'll get their stars back.

1 out of 5 eggsDead after 1.5 years

Pros: Quicker than opening the case.

Cons: Not hot-swappable. Died after 1.5 years. Not sure what went wrong, the first died after 3 months. I suppose the product was not engineered well, or a parts vendor supplied sub-par components. Whatever the case, they are junk. I have two to throw away.

Other Thoughts: Rosewill does not make the USB/eSATA combination docking station now. I am wondering if mass failure had anything to do with their current absence from this market segment.

1 out of 5 eggsDied in 1.2 years

Pros: It worked for a little while, then a tad bit before the warranty period, it dies ! Obviously intentional as I was a test tech for years and this is easily resolved - build a better product that LASTS more than your warranty period!

Cons: Died (On, but drives, and I tried several, on several computers, new and old - and the OS could not locate drive (Windows XP, Vista, 7 and on new 8). Sad you take our money knowing products will only last a year (it not like it gets moved, sits in the same fan cooled area since install). Shame on you Rosewill.

Other Thoughts: I have to agree with others - Shame on Rosewill.
The unreliability of the product has really hurt their brand and I vote with my dollars -does not matter what you make Rosewill, I will NOT buy anything you make now).

2 out of 5 eggsFor one-time project only

Pros: Connects SATA drives, 2.5 and 3.5, to your PC via ESATA or USB 2.0.

Cons: Hadn't used it in about 6 months-- plugged it in and installed a drive and SNAP! and gray smoke, and the product was no more, Luckily drive was OK.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy unless you understand it won't work longer than your one-time project, perhaps. Shame on Rosewill. The unreliability of the product has really hurt their brand.

1 out of 5 eggsWorthless

Pros: USB and eSata

Cons: Not Reliable

Other Thoughts: Broke after 2 years. I barely use it and it broke. The light comes on, but does not spin up the drive. Very disappointed in Rosewill

2 out of 5 eggsOK While

Pros: While it worked it was fine. Used as a back-up device.

Cons: Purchased 4-20-2011 died some where near 2-14-2013. Power will not come on.

Other Thoughts: Pay more and get 1 you can depend on

3 out of 5 eggsOK then dies?

Pros: Simple. Drives drop in place. Choice of USB or eSATA cable.

Cons: Seems to die -- no HD will work at all -- after a few uses. Problems booting also if eSATA cable is connected during boot.

Other Thoughts: I purchased two Rosewill card readers also, with similar hit or miss situation. I guess maybe RoseWill is not long term hardware. Wonder if someone else makes a higher quality, functionally equivalent part.

1 out of 5 eggsGood while it worked

Pros: It did what it was supposed to do... for maybe a few months

Cons: Died. Not worth the hassle of even looking at the possibility of RMA, but for $35 might as well just buy another (or get one somewhere else)

Other Thoughts: Never had a problem with any rosewill product before... Oh well.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat customer support

Pros: Not expensive

Cons: Poor execution - mine has intermittent problems, data transfer dies intermittently and randomly during backups.

Other Thoughts: Several months after purchase (still inside the 1 year warranty period) Rosewill customer support was extremely responsive and credited my purchase.
While this particular product may not be that great (mine wasn't) customer support team is fantastic.

1 out of 5 eggsDied after 1.5 years

Pros: eSata connector

Cons: Died after 1.5 years

Other Thoughts: I was using this as an external hard drive for my Verizon Fios DVR. It was great to be able to save hundreds of hours of high definition programming, bu the downside was the hard drive was on all the time 24/7/365 and I guess the unit just burned out. But the hard drive itself was a hitachi 1 tb drive and it is still going strong. I would think the drive would die before the docking station. After all, the docing station has minimal moving parts and the drive is turning and turning all the time.
