2 out of 5 eggsi really want to like it

Pros: e-sata and usb 3.0
2x drives
solid construction
faster than 2.0

Cons: speeds are questionable
constantly disconnects

Other Thoughts: i really want to like this product...i really do...but it's constantly disappointing...i was looking for a solution for manually backing up drives and storing them outside my computer. this was the perfect solution...on paper...but almost every time i'm transferring more than just a few files the dock will disconnect and reconnect itself....

i wish i could return it...but i can't...so i guess i'll just continue to be disappointed

1 out of 5 eggsIt is not the best solution

Pros: See other thoughts.
It looks good
Good build quality
Faster than usb 2.0
It usually works

Cons: See other thoughts.
Does NOT pass S.M.A.R.T data through.
Transfer speeds are pathetic even on esata.
Sometimes it doesn't detect the drive and I have to reboot my computer.
Its hard to seat the drives properly to make connection.
It apparently does not work well with 2 drives at once? Isn't that what its for?

Other Thoughts: I felt I had to re-post this review because for some reason Newegg set it to 5 eggs which is completely wrong. I'm not sure what happened there, but I would appreciate it if someone would remove the 5 egg review as it is invalid.

I got this drive dock to diagnose and restore drives for customers. I wish I had never gotten it. I can not see the smart data of the drives using the software I have been using for years.
And the transfer rates are horrible through both usb 3.0 and esata. I restored a image to a ssd for a customer and it was taking for ever with this dock, going at about 100 MBps. I connected the drive directly to my esata port with a simple cable and the drive was suddenly going at well over 400MBps.
And I am now afraid to connect 2 drives to it at once because I have read that not only do 2 drives not work with esata, they have problems even with usb 3.0.

Get the single drive version as I think the problem with this one is the extra circuitry inside it for 2 drives is the problem.
I have the usb 2.0 single drive version of this and it works perfectly, only problem is usb 2.0 is slow for restoring customers drives. That's why I wanted esata, but apparently this particular product is not the solution I need.

Chipset limitation only applies to SATA, through USB you can read and write to both drives at the same time.

2 out of 5 eggsWon't Read Two Drives

Pros: Looks nice. Comes with eSata and USB 3.0 cables. Works well with one drive connected.

Cons: The unit will only read one drive at a time. I've tried various combinations of brand new and used 2.5" and 3.5" drives in it, and it will only ever read the first drive that is connected regardless of which port it is connected to. I bought three of these at once, and they all do the same thing.

Other Thoughts: If they had some kind of firmware update I could install to fix the problem I would give it a higher rating, but as it stands Rosewill is just selling disappointment. They typically make good products, otherwise. Son, I am disappoint.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,
Thank you very much for purchasing this unit.
We strive to provide the most reliable and highest quality products to our customers.

Port multipler feature will not work with onboard eSATA ports. This is due to the fact that newer motherboards do not support this feature. The only alternative to try is using and add-on card with port multiplier support. Keep in mind we do not guarantee this is 100% compatible. Two read/write to two drives at once please use the USB 3.0 port.

If you are not fully satisfied with our product please contact us to better assist you in resolving your problem.

1 out of 5 eggsDo not buy

Pros: None

Cons: This product is junk and their tech support is useless. When using the esata connector, the device shows up as a port multiplier but it intercepts the device identify commands to whichever drive is connected first ( the second drive, if installed, works fine ), and mangles the responses so the drive appears to have a bogus firmware revision that does not use 4k sector sizes, does not support NCQ, and does not support SMART. This results in terrible performance when trying to access both drives at once and the inability to monitor the health of the drive.

When contacted about this issue their tech support first claimed they had no product that supports two drives, then that this product does not contain a port multiplier and so does not support two drives via esata ( it most certainly does ), and finally said the only thing they can do is warranty replace the device.

2 out of 5 eggsDoes not work properly with Linux

Pros: Well constructed. Reads large drives.

Cons: Does not read both drive's partitions correctly. With only one drive inserted, the partitions are read correctly and the drive can be accessed ok. If two drives are inserted, the first drive reads ok but the partition(s) on the second drive cannot be read.

Other Thoughts: Look else where if you are using Linux. Since I cannot read dual drives, this docking station is useless for my application, tossed it.

3 out of 5 eggsDisappointing

Pros: I purchased the Rosewill RDD0-13001 to extend the functionality of a new case I purchased, thinking that the extra HDD slots would help in transferring data from my old system to the new. On a positive side, the docking station is built very well and provides for two HDD slots with both USB3.0 & eSATA cables included.

Cons: Now the negatives... First of all the HDDs must be perfectly aligned to have the docking station recognize them. At first glance I thought the system was defective, but after some trial and error I realized that there are no guides to assure that the drives connect firmly to the interface. Next I noticed that both docking bays are recognized by the OS as one attached device, this in my opinion is a design flaw, when you want to ejected one device by using the "safely removing hardware" tray icon you are forced to disconnect both. Of course you can use the eject button on the docking station itself, but this would leave the drive in motion and unparked when ejected (bad idea). In addition, from time to time the docking station will loose its connectivity between the OS and station and reset the adapter intermittently. Once this happens, the drives automatically stop functioning and are forced reconnected ending both coping or formatting actions in process.

Other Thoughts: Having used this device for several months now, I would recommend looking for another one which functions better under real world conditions. The RDDO-13001 docking station appears as an ill conceived device with many design flaws.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Can't list any positives

Cons: Mine arrived DOA, not able to spin up a new drive in either slot. (and I tried two brand new Hard Disks.)

Other Thoughts: We'll see how I feel once I get one that works!

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad!

Pros: Works with 4TB. I transferred an entire 4TB drive full and it worked perfectly without a hiccup.

Cons: For some reason, maybe by design, when I stuck one drive in a slot, it didn't work. So I had to move it to the other slot. Maybe you have to fill it up starting from a certain port. I was sure I had I had it in there snug, but I was in a hurry and didn't want to fiddle with it, so I just tried the other slot. Maybe I have a defective one. I need to check that out.
Not made in the USA.

Other Thoughts: At the time, no other dock like this supported USB 3, 4TB drives, and 2.5", all in the same unit. Rosewill does make decent stuff.

5 out of 5 eggsLoving it!

Pros: Subtle look, USB 3.0 AND e-SATA

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace a Thermaltake BlackX dock because I wanted the flexibility of USB 3.0, and it was a great decision. I haven't used the duplication functionality (nor do I really anticipate doing so). I primarily use it as a hot dock for backups and pulling files off old drives. The drive takes a little longer than I'd expect to recognize and be available in the o/s, but the activity lights do their job and let me know what's going on. For the price, I couldn't be more pleased.
