This review is from: ORICO SuperSpeed USB3.0 & eSATA to SATA External Hard Drive Docking Station for 2.5" & 3.5" HDD, SSD Enclosure 12V2.5A Power Adapter and eSATA Data Cable Included [Support 8TB] - Black (6619SUS3-US)
Pros: Plug and play. I've used 2.5 and 3.5 inch with different height Sata HDDs and had no issues sliding them in to the connector. I've not utilized the e-sata port, but the USB 3.0 was reading/writing to and from my 7200rpm/SATA 3.0 HDDs at 80 to 100 Mega Bytes a second.
Other Thoughts: I have several HDDs I have left over from previous builds and haven't thrown them away. This item provides me a way to reformat some of my drives, like the 500 and 750 GB, and used them as storage or backups. It's surprisingly heavy for its size. I'm very happy that I finally picked this up.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It works if....see other
Cons: Loses connection constantly.
Other Thoughts: My setup hasn't changed at all. There is a sleep mode or whatever that you can configure within the devices. This is turned off. It's supposed to not wait for a queue up from the network cable in order to establish a connection with the other side (PoE adapter).
The only way to fix the constant or random connection losses is to run a constant ping from my computer to my router. That doesn't eat up bandwidth or anything, but it is VERY annoying. I strongly suggest not getting this particular model/company's PoE devices.
Secondly this doesn't transfer anywhere near 500Mbs. And, yes I know how to hook it up and make it connect at that speed. The best transfer I've seen is around 80Mbits.
Pros: Inexpensive. See other
Other Thoughts: AS-SSD results were:
4k Read/Write: ~5000 IOPS
4k-64QD (Queue Depth): Between 40 and 60k IOPS
SEQ: ~300 - 400MB
I was slightly disappointed with the 4k single read/writes, but how often does Microsoft OS and applications ever have just a single request from a drive?
I am happy with what I got and because of the price (about 25 cents a GB) I suggest this to others.
