Worked fine until it broke

  • Pros: Dual bay convenience on one eSATA connection
  • Cons: The second slot stopped working one day, so it's been demoted to a single-bay hard drive dock. Not cool.

Unsure

  • Summary: Looked at the support and their FAQ does not have this model listed. Perhaps too new.
  • Pros: Dual drive bays USB 3.0 and eSata support
  • Cons: eSATA only works for the front bay (undocumented or a bug?) My OCZ Vertex 3 won't go in the bay due to it being off by about one millimeter? Odd since my Vantech single bay has no problem with it (NST-D100). Hitatchi 2.5 and WD 3.5 had no issues though. Dropped off two eggs due to the OCZ fit and...

Does the Job

William S., Newegg

  • Summary: Super easy to use. If you like the idea of saving hardrives for archives and storage, it's as simple as you can make it with this dock.
  • Pros: Fast Transfer speed, super easy to swap out drives. My experience has been limited to only SeaGate drives, but I've used the device to fill 3 500Gig and 1 1TB drive over the last 1.5 years with photos with no problems whatsover. Running on Vista64, just plugged it in and it goes
  • Cons: Clunky external power supply, a built in would be nicer. Wish there'd been a black colored option.

Life is too short to waste on this

David S., Newegg
29 October 2010
  • Pros: Horrible garbage. Will not run two drives at once – screws up computer boot completely when trying to use the USB bay. What a junk timewaster. Should I list the cons? LOL
  • Cons: See above.
