5 out of 5 eggsPretty good

This review is from: StarTech.com USB to IDE SATA Standalone HDD Hard Drive Duplicator Dock(UNIDUPDOCK)

Pros: Works as advertised, one device for all the HD's you own, simple operation

Cons: Transfer speed is slower than expected but still good. It took me about 4-5 hours to copy a 500GB drive.

4 out of 5 eggsIt works fine so far

This review is from: StarTech.com USB to IDE SATA Standalone HDD Hard Drive Duplicator Dock(UNIDUPDOCK)

Pros: SATA to SATA worked perfectly first time. The image worked fine with very little work from me. I just pushed a button and walked away. When I came back I removed the new drive and put it in the PC and came up back up.

Cons: #1 is this thing is bulky and cumbersome but is the only duplicator I could find at a "reasonable" price to clone also IDE drives. Second is it doesn't read ALL drives. I tried to image IDE to IDE and it only read 1 drive of 2. I am still looking for another IDE drive to use as I have a computer to image.
#2 this duplicator doesn't recognize all drives.....
#3 when I imaged a computer for my client... I saw the welcome screen come up and shut it down - then marked it as complete. Customer called back and said it doesn't work. Well lol, I had to MERGE partitions together and I didn't know that. After that it works great. (noted :p)

Other Thoughts: I am a tech and work on computers all the time. I'd say this thing would help me about 2-3/5 jobs where a new hard drive would be required. I bought it using my customers payments. Not TOO much of a loss. It's definitely MUCH easier to image drives. I will definitely put it to a HUGE test a few times in the year.

1 out of 5 eggsNot Pleased

This review is from: StarTech.com USB to IDE SATA Standalone HDD Hard Drive Duplicator Dock(UNIDUPDOCK)

Pros: 1. It has all the cables needed, no matter where you are.
2. Easy to use.

Cons: Seriously! I am on my third attempt to get this to work once! First time, using two 250GB hdd's SATA, when I went to copy it would keep telling me Drive not exist. Second attempt much better but I gave up because after 2 hours it was still at 1% copied on a 40GB HDD SATA! Third attempt is so far not any better... I will let it run over night, which completely defeats the purpose of ordering it.

Other Thoughts: As of right now I say do not try this product. I will however change my review if I have to RMA it and the second works fine.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid This Product

This review is from: StarTech.com USB to IDE SATA Standalone HDD Hard Drive Duplicator Dock(UNIDUPDOCK)

Pros: Nice Package Design

Cons: The unit when cloning IDE drives will only copy the first partition and stop,
i.e. It ignores all remaining partitions. If the source and destination drives are
totally identical, i.e. Both the same capacity, model, & manufacturer, the unit
will 'hang' (no copying) and must be reset or turned off/on to again access the
menus. The display has poor contrast and is difficult to read off angle. During
the copying process, the display is basically unreadable, i.e. To determine the
status of the copying (percent completion & time remaining). The unit is
incompatible with solid state drives, i.e. It won't identify/find IDE SSDs.
No tests were done with SATA drives, but most likely the same problems will
occur as the application firmware is most likely the same for both IDEs and SATAs.
For copying IDE drives, a better choice is to use a software application than this
unit even though potentially more involved. At least then the drive will be copied
properly. Other/better

1 out of 5 eggsDidn't work for me...

This review is from: StarTech.com USB to IDE SATA Standalone HDD Hard Drive Duplicator Dock(UNIDUPDOCK)

Pros: portable, no pc needed

Cons: Not reliable in a field where reliability is key. Very slow compared to other methods. 160gb drive takes around 1hr, when it works.

Other Thoughts: Some 3.5 in drives copied fine but sometimes it would hang, all my 2.5 in drives never copied, would lose HDD connection as if they were removed. Will send back and continue using a software imager instead.

3 out of 5 eggsFunctional, but slow

This review is from: StarTech.com USB to IDE SATA Standalone HDD Hard Drive Duplicator Dock(UNIDUPDOCK)

Pros: Its setup well to accommodate a lot of drive options and seems to recognize drives accurately and well. Also servers as a nice hard drive case/adapter to connect a drive to another system via USB to see whats on it.

Cons: Its just slow duplicating drives. To duplicate a 500GB drive took almost 3 hours. In the end it was much easier to use a software boot application like Acronis True Image or other such drive imaging software which takes about 15 minutes tops. I had trouble getting past a 3 hour dupe time.

4 out of 5 eggsStartech

This review is from: StarTech.com USB to IDE SATA Standalone HDD Hard Drive Duplicator Dock(UNIDUPDOCK)

Pros: Does what it says - When you remember to remove the hard disk password from your laptop drive

Cons: havent tried but a few hdds so far

Other Thoughts: if you buy this and use it to clone a drive make SURE there is no sata/atapi password set on the disk first..... otherwise it will just keep bombing out at %0

5 out of 5 eggsGreat IT Tool

This review is from: StarTech.com USB to IDE SATA Standalone HDD Hard Drive Duplicator Dock(UNIDUPDOCK)

Pros: This item is a great tool to have for IT.
Good for imaging drives.

Cons: Price could be more reasonable and manual lacks useful info.

Other Thoughts: Previous comment: stated it can't erase a drive.
It can, it just doesn't tell you in the manual. You must hold the ESC key down for a few seconds to access the advanced menu. it is in there. Found that on Startech's website.
