Orico 6518SUS3-BK USB3.0 & E-SATA SATA HDD Docking Station Enclosure
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It's quite fast with both USB and eSata. I have reached speeds of 180mbps with this device and USB 3.0...

This is a MUCH better design than the enclosures that require the HDD to stand on it's end, nose down

Cons: After upgrading to Win 8.1 Pro, it quit working with one of my USB 3.0 controllers (Intel). It worked properly with the onboard ASMedia USB 3.0 Controller...

It worked properly on both controllers on the same machine with Win 8 Pro prior to upgrading to 8.1.

Other Thoughts: I actually received a phone call from Hong Kong when I submitted a RMA for my first enclosure because of the mentioned problem...

They suggested a Firmware update might solve the problem, which turned out to be the case... But the Enclosure had already been shipped back to Newegg..

The firmware update didn't go smoothly. When following the instructions, it wouldn't install... I eventually realized that the installer wasn't responding in the fashion the instructions stated, and modified the method I was using accordingly...

The Firmware eventually installed, and the Enclosure works flawlessly... The RMA would have been unnecessary if I had known of the Firmware issue sooner.

For some reason after receiving the email with the link to the Firmware update, I haven't received a response to any more communication attempts...

I don't know if this is a Company issue, or maybe the person I was in contact with left the company..

Orico 6518SUS3-BK USB3.0 & E-SATA SATA HDD Docking Station Enclosure
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Quite fast both with USB 3.0 and ESATA. Even on a older SATA 2 machine using a USB 3.0 PCI-E card.

Cons: The Power button is a bit flimsy...
Won't work off of a Intel USB 3.0 Controller in Win 8 or 8.1.

Other Thoughts: I returned one of these and later regretted it. I thought the USB 3.0 had failed. It turned out that I had been using a onboard ASMedia USB 3.0 104x controller, and it had been working.

I didn't realize that I had plugged it in to a different USB 3.0 port that was running off of the onboard Intel USB 3.0 controller... I figured this out after receiving the replacement and having the same problem.

This only happens with Win 8 and 8.1, and only the USB 3.0. The ESATA works perfectly. The Dock works perfectly when running Win 7 Pro SP1 on the same machine.

The Dock also works perfectly with a 3TB HDD when booting with a Acronis TrueImage CD and saving or restoring an image..

Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Impressive Speed For USB 10/05/2013

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV2000100 Black

Pros: Copies at a steady 100mbps on a machine with SATA II HDDs...
Copies at a steady 160mbps on a machine with SATA III HDDs

Cons: Can get a little warm

Other Thoughts: Can get a little warm when copying 50GB+ backup Images.
I ended up using a small desk fan to help keep it a little cooler.
A bit of a pain, but cheap insurance to avoid corrupted files from excessive heat.
