Wonderful little device 11/16/2011
The unit is tiny- well, at least in comparison to my expectations- yet surprisingly weighty and stable on its feet. The weight suggests that it's well-built. It's connected to the eSATA port on my desktop and, boy, it's fast! I had a bit of trouble getting the dock to hot-swap. Turns out you need to have the Storage Controller mode in BIOS set to AHCI. But, before you do this, you need to first make sure that AHCI driver is enabled in Windows Registry. So, if you’re wondering why your dock won't hot swap, follow the step-by-step instructions in this Microsoft Knowledgebase article for modifying the registry: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922976. Then reboot, go into BISO and set Storage Controller to AHCI. Everything worked out great for me. Hope the dock will hold up in the long term.
