5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: This dock works perfectly on 3 1/2 and 2 1/2" SATA drives. Completely plug and play. There is no setup required, just plug the drive in the dock, plug your usb cable in and the drive appears on your computer. Write to it or read from it just like you would do with a flash drive. Great way to make use of all those old drives you have laying around.

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsNice tool to have

Pros: Works well for testing hard drives and transferring data from one drive to another. Fairly low price, which is good if on a tight budget.

Cons: Transfer rate is a little slow and can get annoying when backing up lots of files or large files/folders. That's more a limitation of the USB 2.0 interface than a limitation of the drive docking station itself though. Also, mine didn't come with a USB transfer cable, luckily I found one in my spare cables.

Other Thoughts: Wish I would have bought the one that had eSATA and USB so that I could transfer faster over eSATA.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks like a champ

Pros: Did three computer replacements over two weeks and used this for reading data off the old drives for direct transfer and also MS Easy Transfer. Worked perfectly. Also nice to be able to quickly check that stack of old, small capacity HDDs.

Cons: none yet

1 out of 5 eggsRebuttal to the Rosewill post, in my last comment

Pros: I was able to make these units work, but they were NOT designed well. I'll NOT be returning these for replacement, since I'll most likely get something like I got.

Cons: To the Rosewell rep, the design of these (I've gotten 3 by now) units leave something to be desired.

1, the cast iron counterweight is POORLY mounted.

2, the "eject" mechanism rarely works. (But that doesn't matter, because the drive can be pulled out of the docking station, with NO ill effects.)

3, the circuit board is mounted too close to the cast iron base, and too far away from the drive, making electrical contact, spotty at best.

Other Thoughts: I, with simple hand tools, was able to save these products, but then, I know what I'm doing.

I've had one of these for almost a year, and ordered 2 more, because that one works so well. The second 2 needed some mechanical re-work, to even function. I'm just glad the cast iron counterweight did not do any damage in shipping.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Usb and Power plug are not slack. Works just fine.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: The other docking station I own had a slack power and USB plug. So I'm satisfied with this product.

1 out of 5 eggsWatch out.

Pros: I ordered one of these almost a year ago, and it worked flawlessly

I ordered 2 more, just a few weeks ago, and read my critique below.

Cons: OK, well here we go. The 2 units I got, just over a month ago, had a HEAVY rattle, coming from inside. I violated the warranty, by opening them up. It seems the 1/2 pound cast iron counter-weight, mounted to the bottom (with a real flimsy casting) buy 2 TINY screws, had broken loose in shipping. I don't know if it was shipping TO Newegg, or, shipping FROM Newegg, but nevertheless, there was a 1/2 pound piece of metal bouncing around inside BOTH units, and was in (almost) direct contact to the circuit board.

Second issue, the build and mounting of the "eject" mechanism, and the general layout of the inner construction would only allow 1/16 of an inch of contact of the 1/4 contact strip. After removing the circuit board, drilling out the parts that held up the base, and completely removing (you can just pull a drive out, that is what the eject mechanism does) the eject mechanism, everything works fine.

Since I have a couple cats, I have re-attached the cast iron plate to the bottom piece with some spongy double adhesive tape, and everything works just fine, finally.

Other Thoughts: Works fine now, wish it was built right to begin with.

Oh, my first one WILL recognize a 4 TB drive, AFTER being formatted as an internal drive. Both on my Windows-based machine, and my brother's Mac.
