5 out of 5 eggsEXCELLENT

Pros: It works!
It's very fast over USB 3.0, have not yet tried USB 2.0 but I'd expect it to top out at about 30-40 MB/s
Power supply has a nice long cable, unlike my old TT dock.
Included USB 3.0 cable is quite rugged

Cons: Obnoxiously bright blue LEDs... why??
Very lightweight, my previous dock had weights in the bottom to stabilize the drive. This one has no weights but it seems stable enough without them. (could be a PRO I suppose, if you move this thing around often)

Other Thoughts: Be sure the drive is firmly in place before you power it on. There is some resistance when you first insert the drive, then more resistance as the drive slips into the SATA connectors.

1 out of 5 eggsDid not work!

Pros: None

Cons: Did not work, tried in two computers. Item was DOA. Bought to move data off of a hard drive from a computer with a bad motherboard.

Other Thoughts: Had to pay shipping back for a DOA product. Thanks!

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good USB 3.0 Dock

Pros: Very fast a reliable dock. Have used it dozens of times with no issues. Using my two 2TB Seagate's and one Hitachi 2.5inch as back ups the transfers are as fast as if plugged inside the PC. Did several benchmarks on this as well. Plugged into the SATA6Gbps port inside the PC the Sequential Read\Writes were around 143 Mb/s. In the dock (USB 3.0) it was 141 MB/s. Virtually no difference more then likely margin of error. Have not tried with a SSD (which would work just not sure how fast speeds would be) or with USB 2.0.

Cons: USB 3.0 Cable is only 3FT. Knew that when buying but a longer cable would have been nice but at the price cant complain

Other Thoughts: IMO one of the best single docks for USB 3.0. Made in Taiwan. Not sure if matters but some people are curious on country of origin. For the price i was surprised to see that as well.
