1 out of 5 eggsNot detected

Pros: Well, it looks kind of nice I guess. Lovely idea.

Cons: Does not detect any drives I put in the dock. Tested three so far that work in other enclosures.
I'll be returning. Recommend to others to try some other product.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It's inexpensive and does exactly what it was designed to do with no real problems.

Cons: The included documentation is pretty lacking and can be confusing. Just follow the instructions that previous reviewers have written and you'll get it to work with no problems.

4 out of 5 eggsNot too bad

Pros: I needed something like this. I have 2 computers KVM'd together on GIGABYTE mb's with USB 3.0 connections. Copies pretty good. I installed the drivers for the USB 3.0 ports, which maybe is why I only give this 4 instead of 5 stars.

Cons: It will work when I reboot and the Masscool is shut off. When I finish rebooting and turn the Masscool on then it will see the drive and install it. If I leave the Masscool on and reboot or turn off completely, it will not be recognized. I don't know if this because of the Masscool, USB 3.0 protocol or the GIGABYTE mb's(which I ain't been impressed with!!!) I thought USB was supposed to be Plug and Play. Oh well

Other Thoughts: When it works, it works good.

5 out of 5 eggsAddition to my other review

Pros: Faster yet with a Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1 TB: ATTO reports 42.2 MB/sec write, 39.6 MB/sec read with 4 KB blocks.

With block size >=32 KB, reads soar to ~ 130 MB/sec, and writes average > 126 MB/sec.

And - because I forgot to mention it before - it is quiet even though I have it sitting on a metal rack.

Cons: You have to bumble around on the included mini-CD to find the "OneTouch" backup software. It is under the "USB 3.0 OTB" folder and comes as a RAR file (so you'll need a freebie program like 7-Zip to unpack it).

Other Thoughts: Wish I'd had this when I bought that bunch of WD disks that had a DOA one I didn't find until too many weeks later. Makes it easy to test drives.

5 out of 5 eggsLove the USB 3.0!

Pros: Fast! Running a WD75001AALS drive in it connected to a USB 3.0 port, ATTO benchmarks show I'm getting 113+ MB/sec write and 117 MB/sec read for chunk sizes 64 KB and over. 4 KB chunk write and read is 40 MB/sec and 28 MB/sec.

Outruns an eSATA-connected external enclosure running RAID 10 that I have.

Cons: None...does what it advertises it does.

Other Thoughts: Just remember have the unit powered down and disconnected from the system, then put the hard drive in and get it powered up before you plug the USB cable in. You'll have to init cherry drives in disk manager.

Ran the ATTO test on a box with Win7/x64 on an Intel core I7 980x riding an Asus p6x58d premium (NEC USB 3.0) w/12 GB memory. I mainly got this MassCool device for backup and to use to test new hard drives before I stored 'em for spares.
