5 out of 5 eggsStarTech SATADOCKU2E

Pros: Excellent product for more modest computers utilizing last gen connectivity (USB 2.0, eSATA 3Gbit/s, so on...)
Very well designed and implemented.

Cons: None at all really.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this item for use as external storage for my DVR only to find out that my stupid cable company software locks the Motorola digital cable box to prevent this feature.

5 out of 5 eggsStill works

Pros: It still works just great and does exactly what it was intended for.

Cons: NA

Other Thoughts: SATA I instead of II or III... So pretty slow.
The trap door broke but that was due to traveling. Still works just fine though. I will need to find a newer generation of the same device.

3 out of 5 eggsIt works, but...

Pros: It installed perfectly on the first try, and I was able to run a backup job right away.

Cons: Spring-loaded flap door hinge pin broke very easily. It's not important to the operation of the device.
Lack of effective dust could be a problem in most environments. Some sort of lid would be good. Flap door has an open slot for a 2.5" drive, so even if it hadn't broken, it wouldn't keep dust out very well.
Drive motor is always running while device is on.

Other Thoughts: It works, and I will keep it, but because of the broken flap, I'm giving it three eggs.

4 out of 5 eggsWorked as I needed it to

Pros: The first thing you notice is how solid the base feels. Your drives will be a perfect fit so if by some chance you have something on the side of your HDD it wont' fit.
As other have side the esata cable feels a bit loose but it connected just fine.

Cons: None that I could see

Other Thoughts: I used this dock only a few times so far and has done well by me.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Product

Pros: Works flawlessly with all 2.5" and 3.5" drives I've dropped in it. Nice price here at newegg.

Cons: Had to update my SATA drivers for it to work.

One minor complaint: the included eSATA cable does not fit tightly; moving the dock often breaks the connection, so put the dock where you won't be bumping it.

Other Thoughts: Recommended product in spite of minor cons.

2 out of 5 eggsBroke after 6 months

Pros: Works well when it works

Cons: Stopped working after six months. Contacted Newegg about RMA, was told to call the seller. Seller had told me that the warranty is only for 45 days.

1 out of 5 eggsPerfect, If dependable

Pros: Small, USB AND eSata, Long Cords

When dealing with a HD Dock, you might need to place it somewhere more than a foot away. The unit does come without about 3' of cabling which is more than my Rosewill came with. It's small enough to be placed nearly anywhere, and the shape makes it pretty sturdy. The LED is multicolored. I've observed blue through red colors which is a pretty nice touch on such a simple/small device.

Cons: First one died in a couple weeks more than likely due to heavy use. It was hooked up via USB. Newegg RMA process is very easy, but shipping is still expensive. Second one arrived. Hooked it up via eSata and transferred about 50G of data. I un-docked but didn't think to power it off. About three days later the device is unusable. The LED light blinks when powering off and on, but system doesn't even recognize that anything is attached. The RMA shipping of two docks could buy most of the other HD Docks that Newegg lists. I'm writing off this dock and any other StarTech device.

Other Thoughts: This device would be perfect if it was still functioning. RMA shipping would be 2/3 of the cost of the entire device if I were to RMA it now. This device was one of the more expensive HD docks, but in this case you are not getting what you pay for.
