Orico 6518US3-BK USB 3.0 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs Easy setup and access so far. However... 02/16/2014

This review is from: Orico 6518US3-BK USB 3.0 2.5 " & 3.5 " SATA Hard Drive Dock Station

Pros: Build quality and easy of use top the list. The cable and case is solid, and the function of the ports and power button is perfectly fine. Spin-down of the drive (not all drives are constructed to spin down...not the dock's fault) works fine with 2.5" and 3.5" WD, Seagate and Samsung drives that I use. Great transfer rate with USB 2 and 3. So far all my functionality wants and needs have been met.

Cons: The design of the power adapter is poor. When the adapter is plugged in, it can tip or wobble with the slightest disturbance of the power cord. The result is potentially a poor AC power connection at the wall or power strip. This design opens the door to a high resistance connection that may be dangerous under certain circumstances. It's not a deal breaker, but it is a real safety and data integrity risk that I have to pay way too much attention to.

Other Thoughts: To resolve the power adapter issue, I've had to physically modify it's base to provide additional support when it is plugged in.

1 out of 5 eggs "Contact Us" for support...Not working! 01/30/2014

This review is from: Orico 6518US3-BK USB 3.0 2.5 " & 3.5 " SATA Hard Drive Dock Station

Pros: No purchase made yet. See Cons.

Cons: As previously noted by other reviewers, the " Orico 6518US3-BK USB3.0 2.5 " & 3.5 " SATA Hard Drive Dock Station" is not reverenced at the Orico site...anywhere! Additionally, on 01/30/2014 when you try to access the "Contact Us" page at the site, you are presented with "404 (Page Not Found) Error". This serves as a VERY BIG red flag for me. I can't justify a purchase based on this company's OBVIOUS LACK of Customer Service support.

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: None

Cons: Now I know why there are so many "Refurbished" devices available. The one I got would never connect. It could be discovered by the utility that ASUS has at their site, but that's as far as I could get. Neither wired or wireless worked. The only docs available are at ASUS. They are outdated and inaccurate, and they are totally useless if you can't get into the configuration menu. Oh, and yes, I do know the IP to use for the config menu. My impression is: new or refurbed versions of this device are a cr@p-shoot. Some people have had luck getting a good one, but many, many have received lemons, or became so frustrated that they gave up and sent the item back for a refund. I'm of the impression that ASUS is cutting their losses by dumping this dud on the market, instead of pulling them.

Other Thoughts: Don't forget that you'll have to pay for return shipping if the device is defective or impossible to configure, and you want a refund.
