5 out of 5 eggsGreat Set up

Pros: I've bought several of these. One for each bench in my shop. They work very well and fast.

Cons: The docking system is not terribly useful if you swap drives often. I throw away the plastic and just use the cable.

4 out of 5 eggs

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.

This adapter does seem to have some issues with recognizing a drive when one drive is disconnected from the adapter and another connected without restarting the computer or without unplugging the USB cable. Sometimes it recognizes the new drive quickly. Sometimes it takes about a minute and sometimes it won't recognize the new drive at all (at 10 minutes, the drive wasn't recognized, it may have been recognized if I would have waited longer). This was the same on Windows 7 Ultimate and Home Premium. If you use the 'safely remove hardware and eject media' option in Windows before disconnecting a drive, it appears to have more trouble recognizing the new drive. It seems to work best when you unplug the USB cable from the computer, swap the drives and then plug the USB cable back into the computer.

There are two LEDs. The Green is lit when there is USB 3.0 connectivity. The red LED is illuminated whenever it's plugged into a USB port. The red LED blinks when there is activity (with either a 2.0 or 3.0 connection). The green LED never blinks.

Drive: Crucial M4-CT064 M4SSD2
USB 2.0: sequential read and write 40MB/s and 40MB/s
USB 3.0: sequential read and write 206MB/s and 110MB/s

Drive: Western Digital WD5003ABYX
USB 2.0: sequential read and write 30MB/s and 29MB/s
USB 3.0: sequential read and write 133MB/s and 131MB/s

For comparison, the following numbers are with the drives in a Thermaltake eSATA docking bay.

Drive: Crucial M4-CT064 M4SSD2
eSATA: sequential read and write 244MB/s and 64MB/s

Drive: Western Digital WD5003ABYX
eSATA: sequential read and write 254MB/s and 70MB/s

Cons: Doesn't recognize drives as easily/quickly as I had hoped.

2 out of 5 eggsNot 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.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

The Interface is designed this way with the purpose of making this device a docking station or a portable solution for people need an external hard drive for backup and file transfer purposes. It is supposed to detach from the base easily.

Guess this feature is not what you are looking for and we have other models that is more sutable for your needs. Please browse newegg with keyboard SYBA enclosure.
