5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Works great as expected. I purchased this to replace another brand that did not work well. This works great.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: When moving files or cloneing drives it is still much faster to plug into the Sata connectors on the Motherboard. But this works good for small tasks and you do not have to shut you system down to attatch a drive.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes what it says on the tin

Pros: - Allows for hot swapping SATA drives over usb 3.0 as advertised
- Cutout in the flap covering the toploader does a good job of supporting 2.5" drives
- Once you get used to it, the eject button makes quickly switching drives easy

Cons: No cons as far as the functionality goes but dust is very noticeable on the finish

Other Thoughts: Got this to speed up the process of grabbing old code/configurations off of archive drives, does the job.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked when it worked

Pros: When it worked, it worked well

Cons: 6 months after the 1 year warranty was up, it stopped powering on. Looking at reviews here, I wish I had before I bought it, it appears to be a common issue. Don't buy this product.

3 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY if you will use 3+ TB drives

Pros: Fast USB 3.0 connection, easily detected in Windows 7 and 8

Cons: This dock does NOT work with 3TB hard drives unless you use only that dock for accessing it. Windows interprets it as a blank drive that needs to be formatted otherwise. Was unable to access a backup drive because of this.

Other Thoughts: I don't know the technical details of why 3TB suddenly makes this dock blank out, but it's clear now that this dock is great but only if you don't need to cross the 2 TB threshold.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Works as I expected. I too don't know what all the other poor reviews are about. I've had 2 of these docks for 8 months now. Since they're used in a computer repair shop their each used probably 5+ times a day every day. Since they're 20% off I'm getting a few more.

Cons: Yes there are some issues, but none that are a result of this device. For example, some windows 7/8 formatted drives will not be readable on a Windows XP machine due to the different formatting methods now used; they may not even be readable on another Win7 box.

Other Thoughts: I've used many brands of docks and this one has held up the best so far.

Pay no attention to many of the poor reviews. I've gone through several and it's clear the user doesn't understand hard drives. This device DOES work as USB 3.0, but don't expect the advertised 3.0 speed, nothing will run at that rate. If you have a slow HDD it may run even as slow as <1Mbps, however I've seen some drives reading above 20Mbps. It all depends on the health and speed of the HDD, size and quantity of files, and your system config.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Quality

Pros: Worked well when it was working.

Cons: Lasted 14 months and died. Maybe that's why it only has a 1 year warranty?

Other Thoughts: Was going to buy another one to replace it, but ordered another brand that had higher reviews.

1 out of 5 eggsNot compatible with 3TB drives

Pros: Relatively fast USB 3 connection. Works with drives smaller than 3TB.

Cons: The dock is not compatible with 3TB hard drives. It will not recognize drives formatted using other connections (e.g. internal sata), and a drive formatted in this dock will not work in any other system unless you use the same model of dock.

1 out of 5 eggsSTAY AWAY - AWFUL

Pros: NONE AT ALL

Cons: Never worked. Period. At first I thought it wouldn't work correctly because I was using it on an old Windows XP USB 2.0. pc. Finally had a opportunity to test on several other newer machines and it didn't work on any of those either. It doesn't even power on now.

Other Thoughts: Will stick with Thermaltake BlacX from now on.
