Pros: I wanted an alternative to an eSATA docking port because the eSATA interface doesn't recognize drive change unless you reboot or go to the device manager and tell it to scan for changes in hardware. I've also had several drives that had file system corruption when they are unplugged without shutting the system down. The problem persists after turning off write caching for the drive.
Cons: Doesn't recognize drives as easily/quickly as I had hoped.

Not quite as expected
Pros: It does work as 2.0 or 3.0 if you have adequate power from your USB port or have the extra power plugged in. If you don't have enough power the drive flips in and out of directory list.
Cons: It is poorly designed. The interface portion does not lock into the base, so when you take the drive out, the interface goes it with it and you have to detach the interface separately, then attach it to another drive and put it back in the base all with the cord dangling out. Since it is hot swappable I was expecting to be able to just pop different backup drives as needed into the base. It is clearly designed for just one backup drive for one or two computers and not as a multiple drive, multiple backup, to be used with a bunch of home computers - silly me. You could do the one drive thing easily without the whole stand thing by just using an external 2.5 usb drive.
