5 out of 5 eggsVery Attractive Dock

Pros: This hard disk dock is white in color with a large blue light. The dock would have worked right out of the box, but an adaptor plug was missing. I phoned Vantec and they were very helpful. They rushed me the prong adapter and in a few days I was up and running.

Cons: Can't think of any.

Other Thoughts: These days it is rare to find a company as responsive to the consumer as Vantec was. I would definitely recommend their products.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Nice looking. Mine came with both USB & E-SATA cable assy.
Eject button was nice

Cons: No support.
Initially would only work with drives under 1 TB.
After 5 uses, wouldn't work at all, I had to trash it & replace with another brand, which has been working since.

Other Thoughts: Bought this about 3 years ago, so maybe improvements have been made.

1 out of 5 eggsOwned two units, both have died

Pros: These worked well before they died. Didn't have any issues for about a year or so each.

Cons: I have owned two units of this exact model, and both have now died and will not mount any drives. The light comes on and there will be a weak clicking sound, but the hard drive will not fully spin up or mount in OS. I tried other hard drives and other mounts and confirmed that these docks are definitely at fault.

Other Thoughts: I contacted Vantec support and was told that I could not get replacements as they were both out of the 1-year warranty.

2 out of 5 eggsIt has died

Pros: It worked great during the time that I had it (1+ years). Purchased on 3/17/2011.

Cons: Drives will no longer mount, the light on the front comes on but no drives are ever detected. Tried with multiple computers and drives to be sure. The unit is definitely dead. Wish it lasted longer but oh well.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Get it. Love it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product.

Pros: Exactly what I expected, works great and hasn't failed me yet. File transfers are only limited due to the USB 2.0 cable. But I knew that when I bought it.

Cons: The LED for power is a bit overpowering in the dark. But oh well.

Other Thoughts: Overall this item is worth it, if I had to buy one again thou I'd spring for the USB 3.0 version.

1 out of 5 eggsPass on This

Pros: Price

Cons: You get what you pay for. Does not work 60% of the time. We are a tech-shop and have had this unit not work more often than work. Very frustrating.

Other Thoughts: I would NOT suggest buying this unit to anyone.

Manufacturer Response:

I'd like to apologize for the disconnecting issues you are having with your hard drive dock. We do provide a one year warranty from the date of purchase on your product. So please contact support@vantecusa.com for further assistance. We would love for you to be able to use your device to its full potential.
Best Regards, Vantec

1 out of 5 eggsWorked Randomly [for a while]

Pros: This dock might make for a nice prop in a sci-fi movie.

Cons: At first this dock worked just fine. After a few months it worked less and less. Now, my hard drives rarely if ever mount on my MacBook Pro. My hard drives still mount just fine if I use my Kingwin EZ-Dock, which isn't much to look at, but it always works.
The Vantec dock is also very flimsy feeling. The USB input is very loose and does not inspire confidence and can easily unplug with the slightest tug on the cable. The only saving grace is that this dock didn't fry my hard drives. They appear to be just fine.

Other Thoughts: This is anecdotal evidence, but when an old Kingwin dock consistently mounts whatever I put in it and a Vantec dock makes me worry that my backup drives have been fried... guess which one will tend to trust in the future. Seriously, how hard is it to make a dependable dock? I only use the things once a week and only occasionally switch drives. It's not like I'm pushing them as hard as they will go.
