Pros: Stable USB 3.0 operation after the firmware upgrade and a few other tweaks.
Cons: See other thoughts.
Other Thoughts: @ Nick (previous poster): Do the following to possibly correct your periodic disconnect issue. First, assign a unique drive letter to your new docking station. I used "Z" for mine. Apparently, if you allow it to select a default drive letter, it can create a conflict with outher USB devices. Second, go into device manager and delete the bad profile that was created when the dock first malfunctioned. To do this, you must show hidden devices. I believe these two things will fix your issue. Also, make sure to reboot. Good luck.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Orico has placed the firmware update download link directly on their support website. The zip file contains the utility plus, the USB3 firmware upgrade, and a a PDF document with instruction on how to complete the firmware upgrade. Good luck.
Cons: Orico's delay in making this generally available.
Other Thoughts: When selecting the firmware upgrade via the utility test page, make sure you select the firmware file with the number 3 on the end of it. Do not select the default file or the upgrade won't work.READ FULL REVIEW
