Pros: 2 drive slots is convenient
Cons: I previously had an single external dock from Rosewill, it just died... do I bought this double ... Now when it was working the single worked great.. it would take a few seconds to spin up but then would work great.
This double however is somehow corrupting the file system. The first file I try to access when it start to spin up will become inaccessible. I can then access the other files on the drive except the file which I tried to access. To get access I have to run chkdsk and it will repair the filesystem. I should probably just disconnect it now in case I cause permanent damage.
Other Thoughts: With my tower having like 6 drive slots, time to stop being lazy and move these things internal.
I also wonder if storing drives in a vertical position the way these docking stations are designed will cause asymmetric wear causing the drive to fail early.
