Worked great until it didn't! 08/30/2013
This review is from: Orico 6518SUS3-BK USB3.0 & E-SATA SATA HDD Docking Station Enclosure
Very fast when it worked. I bought a new main desktop just to get USB 3 and between hard drive docks and USB3 Flash drives I am very happy. It looks good but does take up more real estate than an upright dock.
I have owned it three months almost to the day. bought it May 29th 2013. I know it is out of Newegg's warranty so I went to the Orico website. Very poorly translated and no US numbers, no phone in support. Just an email to China. So I emailed a RMA request today. I will let you know how it goes. They may be great. Their FAQ page has nothing in the FAQs when you click on one. They need my help to fix their website and do tech writing for them.
I tried the dock on other USB 3 ports on my other desktop and it does not work there either. I swapped cables and even had a power supply for a spare BlacX dock. No joy! The internal circuits failed. It lights up, but an error message popped up twice that said "The last USB device you connected was not recognized." and now it does not even generate an error message. The drives work in my other three USB2/eSATA docks but I already switched to USB3 computers except my old Desktop with USB2, and no eSATA so stuck with USB2. I will reserve judgment until I get an answer or am ignored.
