Connect and control up to two 2.5"/3.5" SATA HDDs over USB 3.0. The SATDOCK22U3S USB 3.0 to SATA Dual Hard Drive Docking Station enables two SATA 2.5in or 3.5in hard drives (HDD) or solid state drives (SSD) to be connected simultaneously to a computer through USB, while controlling the power status (on/off) of each individual drive independently from the rest. Large capacity drives (tested with up to 4TB 3.5" and 1TB 2.5" drives per bay) can be used to greatly enhance your computer''s storage/backup capabilities.

4 out of 5 eggsDef worth the money

Pros: great soultion for hot swapping up to 2 3.0 3 Tb drives. Works mostly as discribed. Thick cable as expected with 3.0 devices.

Cons: Doesnt seem to quite get true 3.0 speeds. When transfering data using both drives speed drops, but to be expected

Other Thoughts: Purchased when recieved one of the cupons from new egg. Overall pleased with product

1 out of 5 eggsDock Fails

Pros: When it worked: it was fast!
Its not fair to rate a faulty unit since the rating should be based on how well a normal functioning unit meets your expectations... so I will change this once I get a working dock.

Cons: The dock intermittently fails and Windows reports the USB device as malfunctioning and no longer responding. It occurred rarely at first, but now can't function for longer than a few minutes rendering it completely useless.

Other Thoughts: My issues started just a few days into use and then slowly & progressively worsened. Now it fails minutes after being attached and I can't trust it so its useless to me.
Keep all your documentation and thoroughly test the dock often! I did not take the issues seriously (thinking it was Windows 8 & a new PC) and the packaging was tossed-out... now I can't RMA the dock... unless Startech want to help me?!?!?!

4 out of 5 eggsReliable Dock

Pros: Compact, sturdy
Reliable
Fast
Easy to use/setup

Cons: Drives don't always fit snug in the docks. Because not all 3.5" drives are the exact same size you'll find ones that won't budge and others that will jiggle. My Seagate Barracuda 3TB fits better than the Hitachi Deskstar 500 GB I salvaged. This is not entirely a con of the dock itself but for those that *need* secure connections for whatever reason should look into a different type of external connection.

Sometimes it may disconnect itself; this may be due to my laptop and not the dock, but you'll hear rumors that sound similar to this

Other Thoughts: This works on standard Apple products with a USB 3.0 interface. I have a late 2012 model MacBook Pro and I did a large file transfer (250 GB) in less than half an hour. Speed times vary, depending on what you use. Generally the external docks transfer faster to each other than an internal drive will to an external one.

Another port on the dock for USB devices would be nice (make it into a HUB) since it takes up one of my two ports, but it does what it's designed to do

1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable

Pros: A nice design, if it worked.

Cons: Drops out the whole dock during longer writes.

Other Thoughts: I tried powering it with a laboratory power supply, but there was no change in the faulty performance. It's not the power supply.

1 out of 5 eggs2 out of 2 defective

Pros: Seems like it would be great if I could get one that worked

Cons: First one would periodically drop out after 10-15 minutes of heavy activity. RMA service was great, but 2nd one is even worse. Worked for 5 minutes, then died and now it won't detect at all.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great!

Pros: Sturdy plastic case, compact, a little heavy, I got 20+ MB/s write speed. A built-in USB 3.0 hub would be nice so it doesn't take up my only port.

Cons: Expensive, but worth it.

5 out of 5 eggsHigh Speed Solid Docking Station

Pros: 1. Design & Easy to use
- A dedicated power button for each port
- Toaster like release button design
- Very solid design, decent plastic

2. USB 3.0
- Should be a required transfer speed for all docking stations due to the gadget's purpose of quick data transfer, facilitates periodic backups, external HD accessibility.

3. Reliability
- High reliability, high quality product.

Cons: Can't find any yet.

Other Thoughts: Nothing is related to the quality, but a dust cover is suggestible.

Hope this piece of wonder could last as long as my HDs.

5 out of 5 eggsHigh quality dock

Pros: Solid construction, unlike most of the competition's docks. Comes with 30" USB 3.0 cable.. power cord about six feet long..

Cons: A bit pricey, buy the quality makes it worth it.

Other Thoughts: The money you think you're saving on the cheaper docks will be negated when you have to pay to ship them back for RMA! This is THE one to get.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Just Fine

Pros: Does exactly what it's supposed to do. Fast as well.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I was scared off by the reviews of other docks. Other reviews mentioned StarTech favorably so I went for it.
