Windows 10 problems 7/7/2019 3:54:56 PM

Overall Review: When I got this product in 2015 I had windows 7 and had no problems plugging and playing and it worked fine. SInce Windows 10 the device powers on and prompts the safely remove hardware icon, like its detected but won't show up in device manager or file explorer when a compatible harddrive is plugged in. No cloning software or anything will detect the drive, and there are no drivers for this product so it's completly unreliable. My advice get something other than Thermaltake because once to upgrade to Windows 11 none of there current or old products will work.

Pros: Its been my plug n play USB external "hard drive" for 6 years

Cons: it sometimes has fits of being finicky. Bein 6 years old, I suppose its more about Linux Mint and Windows and drivers than a hardware problem.

Overall Review: Probaly cheaper options today, but its been reliable

Great Product 10/28/2018 4:07:20 PM

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...

Overall Review: 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 10/11/2018 9:06:44 AM

Pros: reliable

Cons: slow speeds

Overall Review: 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.
