5 out of 5 eggsUpdate to my 5/10/2014 review

Pros: Saved the day when Acronis True Image failed ("Clone Disk Operation Failed") in the middle of cloning a disk with bad sectors. Sure, other tools might've worked, but few are as fast and simple as this device.

Cons: Cannot clone to smaller capacity drive, regardless of how much space is actually used.

Other Thoughts: Sadly, NewEgg does not offer users the ability to update or edit their reviews, so I am posting this 5 star review to offset my 3 star review of 5/10/2014. Fortunately, my new rating would be 4 stars, largely due to:

1. The cloning incident mentioned above in "Pros"
2. The failed cloning mentioned in my previous review (one 160GB WD1600AAJS to another) turns out to have been caused by one of the drives having slightly more bytes than the other (despite the absence of hidden data areas like HPA, DCO, etc).
3. Not being able to clone larger capacity drives to smaller ones is still the one drawback to this device - lots of folks moving from large HDDs to somewhat smaller capacity SSDs.

3 out of 5 eggsJust OK

Pros: When it works, the KCLONE-1HD-MBC makes short work of disk cloning without the need for a computer. The erase/wiping feature seems to work just fine.

Cons: Larger drive to smaller drive cloning not supported (even in Brief mode, which should be able to handle this if the data can fit on the smaller drive).Doesn't always work as it should (see below).

Other Thoughts: Results of my testing:

1. Cloning a Western Digital 160GB WD1600AAJS to another 160GB WD1600AAJS: target too small error in both Brief and Full modes. Ended up connecting the drives to a computer and using dd (which worked just fine).

2. Cloning a Samsung 160 HD161GJ to a Seagate 160GB ST3160812AS in Brief mode: OK.

3. Cloning a 160GB drive (with only a few GBs of data) to an 80GB drive in Brief mode: target too small error. (The advertising material and manual says cloning to larger drives is supported, but makes no mention of cloning to smaller drives, so I had to test to find out.)

4. Cloning a 160GB drive to a 250GB drive in Brief mode: OK.

If Kanguru fixes whatever caused the failure in #1 above, and added support for #3 via firmware update, this would be a must-have device for mobile technicians. As it is, the device _might_ be handy under some circumstances, but not handy enough to lug around.

In short, great when it works, but be prepared in the event that it doesn't.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertised

Pros: Can copy smaller drives to bigger drives. Secure wipe of old drives. Works on IDE and SATA.

Cons: Would have liked to have SCSI interface for older server drives.

Other Thoughts: Bought this to use at work and home. Wanted to securely wipe old drives before recycling. Works great for SATA and IDE but no SCSI. I also used the copy facilities to migrate important files to a new bigger drive. Had two 1 TB drives setup as a mirror in a computer and wanted to copy to a 2 TB drive. This work fine but when I tried to mirror the new bigger drive it did not work. Tried a couple of times to no avail. Maybe possible but I could figure out how to accomplish this task.
Secure wiping took over an hour. Not a big deal for occasional use but not suitable for larger environments. Price was attractive for my needs as commercial units with these abilities cost thousands.
