5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: Works great, I've been using it for over a year now with no issues. Used for many different drives and all give increased performance over USB 2.0 docks. Would definitely recommend. Why spend more than you have to?

Cons: The construction does make it feel 'cheap'. Its extremely lightweight, and they could have put a small weight in the bottom to give it a more firm footing to the desk.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: None

Cons: DOA

Other Thoughts: Power light turned on. Seemed to spin up disks, but no disks were recognized regardless of size. Would not do a firmware update. Worthless.

2 out of 5 eggsGood enough

Pros: Interfaces with SATA 3.5 and 2.5 drives.

Cons: This unit is really cheaply made, there is absolutely nothing to add to the weight to at least make it feel like a proper paperweight.

Other Thoughts: It does what it needs to do but really.... it's cheap.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Product

Pros: After a firmware update available at http://www.xigmatek.com/product.php?productid=176&type=support it will support 3TB GPT partitioned drives. I like the fact that the safe removal clearly states secure 3 and not a random serial number. Quick to see the drive content. Quick shipping as usual from Newegg. USB 3.0 works with my ASROCK board.

Cons: It is a little scary plugging in older drives as you can' see the ports on the bottom of the drive. Seems like you could easily damage the connectors. Only reason I docked an egg. Construction is also decent for a product in this price range.

Other Thoughts: Maybe a clear lexan glass window or some other form of guide for hard drive installation would make this product perfect.

1 out of 5 eggsNever worked....

Pros: never worked out of the box., Xigmatek tech support could not be reached, non responsive until Newegg assisted.

Cons: never worked out of the box., Xigmatek tech support could not be reached, non responsive until Newegg assisted.

Other Thoughts: Finally offered to replace if I mail back my unit... mailing costs made this unfreasible.

1 out of 5 eggsStopped working within 90 days

Pros: It worked well enough out of the box, even though the power switch is labeled backwards [ I indicates off on this product, O is on ].

Cons: Stopped working within 90 days after very minimal usage. Still puts power into the board, but power LED is not receiving power and board is not functioning. I contacted Xigmatek product support via email, and within the day an employee responded. We passed a few replies back and forth over a six day period, which ended with them agreeing to replace the $25 unit when they received my return. They refused to send a prepaid return label or replace the product without getting the return. I made the decision to not put more money into a clearly risky product. I'm opting to replace the product with a different model and brand.

4 out of 5 eggsit works

Pros: ive had it for a couple of months now and it works fine. i dont really use it to transfer files that much although when i do it work as fast a usb port will allow. i mostly use it to format new hard drives and test them before putting them in my computer.

Cons: it needs it own power supply which isnt really all that bad. i find it frustrating trying to get a 2.5 inch hard drive in the thing properly though.

Other Thoughts: its cheap but it works. i don't know how well it would last if used for constantly moving large files. i have used occasionally it for cloning a hard drive.
