Most Critical Review

Inconsistently fails to recogonize an insertted drive in either bay or corrupts the MFT drive table!

Syba SY-ENC50091 USB 3.0 Dual Bay SATA HDD Docking Station
Syba SY-ENC50091 USB 3.0 Dual Bay SATA HDD Docking Station

Pros: Small Form factor is the only plus

Cons: This is my third ENC50091 USB 3.0 HDD Docking Station and will also be the last Syba product. This docking station has corrupted the MFT drive tables twice on both a very small 160GB and a large 4TB drive. Same issues with both, "unrecognized file system, do you want to format the drive? NO!" Both times where it corrupted the drives has been the exact same issue. Also, a numerous times the docking station will fail to recognize the inserted drive. My other BlacX Thermaltake docking stations with 100's of hours on them have been flawless with data integrity. Very disappointing from Syba. My first Syba ENC50091 has been flawless thus far.

Overall Review: No, This is one docking station that I would stay to avoid at all costs to to the frequency of destroying your data without notice. If a Firmware update could be installed that would fix these issues, with 100% certainty that it WON'T corrupt the data, then it would be an OK product, but reliable or trustworthy it is not.

Excellent USB 3.0 Hub with great toggle switches to turn on/off each port
