External USB / eSATA to SATA HDD docking station.

Pros: Easy setup for Win XP and Win 7.
Optional USB or eSATA connections allow for multiple platform connectivity.
Allows you to use older SATA HDDs that are lying around and not being used.
Use the older SATA HDD for archiving and then store it in a cool place.
Keeps it out of a hot PC case.

Cons: Requires a 110 VAC power source, due to USB hardware limitations.
HDD can come loose if the base is jostled or thrown around the room.

Other Thoughts: I bought this version after buying ORICO's USB only version awhile back,
I needed the eSATA connection so I could expand my DVR capacity.
Docked a brand new Seagate 1TB HDD to the DVR and so far been working fine.
The docking station is on 24/7 for DVR access, so we'll see how long it lasts ...

3/ 5

Pros: Inexpensive
Provides both eSata and USB 3.0 connectivity
Easy slide in and out of drive.

Cons: Drive can slide out of the enclosure if moved.
Reliability. Will not mount sometimes.

Other Thoughts: I bought 2 of these units about 4 months ago. One of them works without any problems. The other one used to work on the eSata connector but the transfer speed dropped after 2 months of use so I switched it to the USB interface. It worked on the USB interface until about a week ago. Now it does not recognize any of the drives.

Dear John,

Much appreciate for choosing ORICO as your preference.

We strive to provide the most reliable and highest quality products to our customers.

"For the Esata Issues" Did you say when you use eSATA cable does not recognize your Hard Disk?

Please do not close the docking station after you connected the eSATA cable,then restart your computer and it will be able to recognize the hard

disk directly.

This problem is caused by the computer did not open hot plug function.

Please just try it again and hope it will be helpful to you.

For the defective product within warranty, we can send you a replacement.

Don't Do It

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: Drops off USB connection regularly as USB hub fails to recognize it. Apparently it needs a firmware update but once you get it to connect, their firmware update app keeps crashing. I've wasted a couple hours on it now; it's going back. Also most of the instructions are in Chinese, with inaccurate or unhelpful English sub-titles.

questionable esata

Pros: - good price
- ESATA would be great if it worked

Cons: - can't get ESATA to work
- drive spin-up is sketchy

Other Thoughts: "at last", i thought, "a basic, inexpensive dock with ESATA 6Gb/s" -- so hard to find
but woe is me.
tried using the ESATA connector with 2 different GPT drives on 3 different computers, and none worked. drive would inconsistently be recognized in bios but windows 8.1 and 10 never saw the drive. tried with drive turned on before boot, and drive turned off before boot then on with windows running.
USB3 connector works fine, but Orico has a different model for those who just need USB3.
measured USB3 speed of 135MB/s which isn't terrible.

and a note about how the drive spins up:
normally with a dock the drive will spin up when power is applied, even if the drive is not connected to a computer.
this dock appears to require a connection before it will spin up the drive.

unfortunately, i bought 2, and not being able to use ESATA makes these useless to me.
