This review is from: Rosewill RX-DU101 Plastic 2.5" & 3.5" Black USB 2.0 Docking Station
Pros: Well built-sturdy; good engineering design.
Cons: I wanted to use this unit for my 1TB backup SATA drive on my Windows XP machine. Both my XP and Windows 7 desktop computers recognized this USB2 device was attached, but would not read the hard drive until I entered Disk Management in Control Panel and I had to Rescan the drive in order for it to be read by Windows. That is not what the drive was described as requiring. And what if I have a major crash and want to re-image the main drive? How to I rescan when Windows won't boot? This does not make for fast switching between drives. I purchased an Orico Docking unit from Newegg several months ago for my Windows 7 unit, and it works a treat. I can pop drives in & out and they are immediately recognized and ready to go. I am returning this to Newegg.
I am rather surprised at Rosewill, they usually have good products. Possibly this is just a lemon, it happens.

Pros: This is a great little dock. I use it for my 1TB backup drive and it works flawlessly. I make 1Xweek backups and have also restored twice, and at all times it never missed a beat. My hard drive sits comfortably in the receiving slot, no need to "push until it clicks" kind of thing, just gently slide it down and that's it. This is actually good since there is little wear & tear on the socket of your drive. Have used several different drives in it, all work fine.
Highly recommended. Easy to swap drives on the fly...it has an on/off switch, so there is no need to shut down in order to exchange a drive, just turn it off, insert whatever drive you want, and turn it on. Done.
