Pros: It does what it said it would do once it was set up works great.

Cons: The paper work that came with the product said it would take a few minutes to set up and register hard drive it almost 9 hrs for my hard drive to register.

Great but with a flaw

Pros: - works great for my spare 2.5" HDDs, 3.5" HDDs, and SSDs
- the power / activity indicator lights
- release button

Cons: - this is a single flaw, but a big one for me - it only seems to work when plugged in to a USB 3.1 gen 2 port. I can't get it to work using USB 3.0 on any of my machines. this is a big con for me as I have older file server and older computers that I wanna attach this to (or to my router with USB connection to use as a "NAS") I can't figure out why..

Works, with one problem...

Pros: fast, transfer about 200mb per second on my pc front usb 3.0 port

Cons: Faulty power supply or transfer cable.

Other Thoughts: When i first started using this the tranfer speeds were falling from 200mb to about 80mb, then 200kb. I had some 12v 2amp power supplies around my room and an extra usb 3.0 cable so switched them, transfer speed stayed around 200mb to 190mb after that. I think the power supplies or/and cable shipped with these units are not working correctly. Though it does work after replacing these items.

Exactly as advertised.

Pros: - Small, compact
- Very fast! Goes as fast as the hard drives I've put into it (same as if it was plugged in with a sata cable)
- Reacts well to bad drives (just turn off, remove bad drive and turn back on)
- Everything you need is in the box (including the required power supply)
- Worked right out of the box
- Got it for 20$ ... how is it possible to make it so cheap?

Cons: - I don't like the shape of the power supply, it covers another adjacent electric slot.

Other Thoughts: With only one (very minor) gripe with this device, I can safely say this is exactly what the doctor ordered. If the device is not exposed to large amounts of heat I'm assuming it will last for a long time. A very neat alternative to buying hard drive enclosures. Just make sure you put your drives in static bags when they are not plugged into the device. Got spare sata drives lying around? You can't go wrong with this.

Great SATA style device.. ensure your UEFI in the BIOS supports a hot swap option to make full use of it.

Pros: - Well designed
- Similar to the old Roswill RX-DUS100 (USB2.0 model) in operation, but adds an eject button. The out-of-the-box (i.e. no enclosure) is a great feature.

Cons: - Can upset the Windows device table if plugged into USB3.0 without the hot swap (or even disable). Does no damage to the drive or its data though.

Other Thoughts: Ensure that Hot Swap option is in the BIOS UEFI as a setting. My BIOS is dated Nov 2013, and did not have the option. Still useful on the USB2.0 port, and keeping the device since my 2013 ASUS is nearing its end of life and is pending replacement.

good for small drives

Pros: -the eject lever is cool to get it out correctly
-The general feel is ok

Cons: Work but on hdd that don't pull much power. I have a 2.5in WD black that work on usb power directly and it worked quick good on the docking. Although my 2 3.5in WD Black weren't recognised and my computer kept blinking them on and saying they need to be formated. Although when I connected them directly to SATA to the motherboard they are perfectly fine. The only possibility I find is that the little powersupply is unable to give out enough to boot up such a drive.

Other Thoughts: -Returning because it don't work with my drives and I'll simply be using the hotplug feature of my motherboard instead.

Could have been a good product though.

Good Deal

Pros: Great Price to retreive info off old Sata's you have lying around, you can format, read, and write from and to this drive.

Cons: the cutout in the top seems pointless, only making it a dust collector

Other Thoughts: I'm not 100% sure yet but i have attempted to play games off the drive and it wants to go, but getting compatibility issues...? So i think it will work in time.
