Pros: Quality build, fast transfers (90 MB/sec for me). Computer recognizes drives right away and treats them as if they were connected directly to the motherboard.
Cons: Biggest problem: It randomly disconnects and reconnects. It hasn't happened during an intense video transfer, which would be a big problem for me, but it disconnects/reconnects often enough it appears to be only a matter of time before it happens at a very bad time.
--Drives keep spinning even if you turn the computer off that it's docked to.
--VERY short USB 3.0 cable. I had to purchase extensions.
--Fat adapter takes up valuable space on my UPS.
--No fan, and the drives get hot.
Other Thoughts: I put the dock on the top of my computer where one of my case fans could blow on it to keep it cool.
Don't know if the disconnect/reconnect issue has to do with the dock or the motherboard, I guess it's possible that it could be the motherboard and not the dock. I've got it connected directly to an ASRock Z77 Extreme4.
