4 out of 5 eggsAdequate

Pros: Inexpensive
Easy to connect/use

Cons: Doesn't recognize both hard drives, in eSata mode (on my system, at least)
[works fine, in USB mode]

Other Thoughts: I use for simple backups... in this manner, it works perfectly fine.

5 out of 5 eggsUnderstand what you are buying

Pros: Price, stability, eSata.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: When it is attached as eSata it operates just like any other external Sata multiple drive enclosure. In other words if you want to access both drives your Sata controller has to be able to support multiple drives on one connector!
Also, it is the limitation of your controller that limits whether you can access a drive of a certain size.
If you want multiple, 4TB drives then buy a $40 Sata3 controller that supports that!

1 out of 5 eggsWow is this thing bad.

Pros: Stylish, sturdy and it came with all the cables you need.

Cons: Another reviewer mentioned that this somehow corrupts the file system of drives when using the USB connection. It did it with me on two Seagate 1.5TB's a WD 3TB and a Toshiba 2Tb drive.
Basically what it does is makes certain folders and files inaccessible until you run a check disk scan. This is annoying but it can lead to bigger hassle by corrupting the 'master file table,' which is what happened to me on one of the Seagates. Basically when this happens the drive becomes unrecognizable and unusable until you reformat the disc. Problem is though, if the drive has stuff on it then formatting the drive will wipe it.
Because the drive is inaccessible you will be forced to use a file recovery tool. Either fork over the $100+ to do yourself or pay someone else to do it. Either way once the master table is corrupted you have no other choice.

Luckily for me my brother in law had a Stellar Phoenix installed on one of his computers so all I had to do was take it over to his house. It took 4 days to retrieve the data on a 1.5 TB drive with the computer running 24 hours a day.
Once I got the files off I reformatted the drive and it's fine. Ran it through Seatools and monitored it for a week with HD Sentinel and it's fine. In-fact all the the drives that were throwing errors on this thing are fine. I'm no Sherlock Holmes but I do know that 1+1 always equals 2 and if 4 drives work 100% fine in other stations or plugged in directly then it's clearly this Rosewill docking station.

Other Thoughts: I was really starting to like Rosewill. I have three of their external enclosure and I really haven't had that many problems, although they are all using the eSATA connectors. But I'm afraid this thing has soured me on the company. If I do buy another one of their products it won't be something that can have an effect on critical data.

4 out of 5 eggsCame as a kit

Pros: Got this as part of a package which included 2 WD Green 2TB drives and the docking station. Great combo price. Had a little trouble getting the drives to show up. Once a little disc management setup was done, that issue was solved. I had it connected as USB3 but since have it as E-Sata. Sits under my desk and if it wouldn't be for the lights I would not know it was running.

Cons: Not really a con but.
Cannot set up in Raid. Not that big a deal to me. Really was a afterthought once i received them. Thought of making them into a NAS but it will not work easily.

Other Thoughts: I am using one drive as a backup disk. The other has my system image on it.

5 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Works well with a 6 foot e-sata cable.

Cons: N o USB 3.0, but not really a con, cuz e-sata is better anyway.

Other Thoughts: I have used it to run backups and defrags on old HDD's.

1 out of 5 eggsWish I had read the reviews

Pros: It works fine with esata and "1" drive.

Cons: Wish I had read the reviews, indeed you cannot access both drives via esata. It's crazy to have to use slow USB2 in order to access both drives in the dock.

Other Thoughts: If you plan on using esata for both drives look elsewhere, this dock will be a waste of time and money. If you're just using USB2 then it's nicely built and will work.

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage-Avoid

Pros: Looks cool. Power switch

Cons: If you use as a Dual Dock you must use USB2.0, Cannot duplex drives in ESATA. Does not support 4TB Drive. So pretty much everything in the ad for this drive is a lie. First time I have ever been let down by a Rosewill item.

Other Thoughts: I should have just bought another RX-DU300, which BTW DOES support 4TB drives, exactly opposite of the write up.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for the feedback. This item has been thoroughly tested and works fine with a Seagate 4TB.
You may have a defective unit. Please contact the Rosewill support team either at 800-575-9885 or

4 out of 5 eggseSATA only work for one drive

Pros: Nice Aluminum casing, high quality, fit nicely.

Cons: I bought this for fast eSATA connectivity feature but it did not work with two drives because my host PC does not have the port multiplier function. I discovered this from the manual after installation. I have to downgrade to USB 2.0 (I wish it has 3.0). Both drives work flawlessly however.

Other Thoughts: The spec. needs to state more specifically. I was lured by the Newegg discount and did not pay attention. This was my first dual-dock.
