Great Product

Pros: - Obviously I liked the ease with being able to copy/clone drives

Cons: - I had something very weird happen. I had two of these and they worked for a few years. But then, suddenly, they stopped seeing hard drives. I put both of these on two different Desktop PC's. Windows would see the drives attached. But when I put drives into them, they never became available, the drives just could not be seen. Now this is with 2 seperate units, on two seperate PC's. I figured some freaky anomoly must be happening but I couldn't image what was wrong. Eventually I gave up, never got them to work again and finally tossed them out when cleaning up...

Other Thoughts: I would gladly purchace again, thought I might like to try as I have different PC's these days...

It's reliable but slow speeds

Pros: reliable

Cons: slow speeds

Other Thoughts: I have it for a couple of years now and it was perfect while using mechanical drives, but nowadays with SSDs I'm hating its slow speed especially on eSata: getting max 112MB/s; tried different setups, computers, eSata cables - same slow speed capped @ 112.
On USB2 you are not getting more than around 40MB/s.

Died 3 months in. Constantly disconnects by itself.

Pros: The intended use is novel, but there are so many other reliable brands.

Cons: Died 3 months in. Constantly disconnects by itself. Sata/Power connectors are flimsy on the pcb.

Other Thoughts: no no no

Works great

Pros: - quick / no driver install
- nice release / push down mechanism
- good
- works with all modern Windows versions including Win 10

Cons: - 40mb / s speeds - this should be updated to USB3 version - why is USB2 still being sold in 2018?
- short cables
- 4TB limit?

Other Thoughts: Using this on my laptop at work - cant be bothered to run around and setup a desktop.

Very good for smaller tasks of moving files / formatting drives. The speeds are USB2 obviously - so max you are going to get about 40-48mb/s if you are transferring 1 big file. Smaller files run at about 10mb / s.

Apparently there is a 4TB drive limit - you cant put bigger drives into it - I havent tested this yet, but I guess for now its not a huge deal.

The 2 things I would fix on this product is obviously USB3 and the cable length. Otherwise great product!

Great Product

Pros: Allows quick swapping of hard drives.

Cons: The power button needs a slight redesign.

Other Thoughts: I've had this unit for 7 years now and it works great. I use it for long term storage and backups. It's also useful for cloning drives.

I had to modify the power switch. The switch itself is fine, the problem is the plastic button over it. It used to catch on the PCB, which prevents the unit from turning on, so I removed the plastic button and shaved off enough from one side so that it would clear the PCB, then I glued it directly to the switch. Now it works flawlessly every time. 4 stars since I had to fix it myself. Otherwise a good product.

Works great.

Pros: Been using it a couple times a month at least since I bought it in 2010. Never had an issue.

Cons: Only reads up to 2TB apparently, and is USB 2.0. But that wasn't an issue when I bought it. I've never tried it with anything larger than 2TB, so I don't know if there's a way around that limit.

So far so good

Pros: Great Price for a working device. Saves me the trouble of messing around with wire in my test machine.

Cons: None at this point.

Other Thoughts: I'll update this review if it stops working for no good reason.
