Summary: Disappointed with device and Thermaltake support. I emailed the support team concerning device not recognizing any of the hard drives that I placed into the duet station. I also tried various OS i.e Linux, MAC, Windows xp, 7, 2008 server. Just trying to eliminate OS. I also used known good hard drives. The station boot ups and the drives initially will spin but than stop. I look into disk management but can not manage the drive. The words are greyed out.
Summary: This is a nice sata hard drive docking station for copying hard drives. It takes the 3.5" & 2.5" sizes. Being a dual docking station, you can insert 2 hard drives for copying. You can also insert one & use it for backing up data or just as a spare drive. Excellent quality, works great, & is dependable. Highly recommend.
Summary: This is a very convenient adapter for accessing drives without opening your pc case. I use it for as a cheap backup solution. Instead of buying enclosed hard drive, I just buy slightly cheaper internal ones and use them as backup drives.

Summary: This is definitely one of those :I kind of products. When it works, it's great. But if one of the bays goes down it kind of becomes a paperweight because you really need to be able to use both slots or why didn't I just buy the singles? So it worked perfectly for archiving my jobs and then one day just up and stopped. I love the idea of these and have bought others from different companies with great success.
Summary: I tried using this to clone drives, and it is more of a hit and miss when it actually worked. After only a few uses trying to clone a drive, and being unsuccessful, I noticed an odor, similar to a burnt capacitor coming out each time I tried to use it again. It stopped working, still smells when I turn it on. Probably only used around 5 - 10 times just to try and clone 1 hard drive from my laptop, and in the end... was unsuccessful...
Pros: Works sometimes...
Cons: Works sometimes... then stops working all together...
Summary: I had my doubts when I bought this, but decided to give it a try. Boy am I glad I did. As soon as I received it, I hooked it up and put a 3TB and a 2TB drive in it. My computer picked them both up instantly over eSATA. I get excellent transfer speeds from it and may end up buying a couple more for my other computers. If I had any complaints at all, it would be with 2 drives in it, they get a little warm after an extended period of time.
