SYBA USB 3.0 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Replace USB Cable if Large Transfers Fail 02/20/2015

This review is from: SYBA USB 3.0 2.5" & 3.5" Dual bay Black SATA III, HDD Docking Station for Easy Clone and Backup, CL-ENC50060

Pros: Dual bay allows one-button duplication of source drive to destination drive without using USB or computer. USB transfers are good 3.0 speed providing you do not get a defective USB cable in package like I did.

Cons: Required defect troubleshooting. As another reviewer mentioned, worked on small file transfers but failed on larger ones. Replaced USB cable and now works all the time. Recommend all purchasers test cable thoroughly. AC adapter often sparks when inserting plug into wall outlet. Perhaps this is due to higher amp draw to support up to 2 drives but it can still startle a bit.

Other Thoughts: Will try to get warranty replacement on USB cable only. Paid out of pocket to get one quickly and verify device works great. Note that drives may not sit as solidly in this device as others, but not enough vibration to be a problem.

StarTech SATA12LA1 12
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Vital design for some SIDE SATA installs! 01/22/2015

This review is from: StarTech SATA12LA1 12" SATA to Left Angle SATA Serial ATA Cable

Pros: Provided the vital LEFT ANGLE connector I needed due to my NEW motherboard using SIDE mounted SATA ports that back up against a case wall!

Cons: NO cable cons. I can only connect top row of 3 SIDE SATA ports. Bottom SATA row is obstructed by case and top 3 cables installed. This is a motherboard and case issue.

Other Thoughts: Had to use a flathead screwdriver as a lever to push the plugs into the SIDE SATA since my case did not allow room for even small fingers to reach. Works great!

Rosewill RNWA-UC1300 – USB 3.0 Cradle - Cable Length: 4 Feet (1.2 Meters)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

1 out of 5 eggs Only Half USB 3.0 Speeds 01/11/2015

This review is from: Rosewill RNWA-UC1300 – USB 3.0 Cradle - Cable Length: 4 Feet (1.2 Meters)

Pros: Looks and feels sturdy. Newegg is the BEST online vendor and is processing my refund RMA. Thank You.

Cons: Much slower than expected USB 3.0 speed. I bought 2 of these and tried them with 2 different computers and 2 different USB 3.0 disk drives. Both ran large file transfers about 40MB/s average. This is about half the normal USB 3.0 speed. I average 95MB/s when connected directly to the PC USB 3.0 port.

Other Thoughts: One cradle had noticeably tighter fit on the base connector. The other was OK. This did not affect the data speeds. They were both poor and I will be looking for a better equivalent.
