"The semaphore timeout period has expired"

Pros

Good transfer speeds
Properly sleeps when not in use
Cons
Has trouble maintaining connectivity
Summary
Whenever I transfer a large amount of large files, I get an error that says "The semaphore timeout period has expired". When that happens, the hard drive has to be power cycled. If it is not power cycled shortly after the "semaphore" error happens, then after power cycling it, Windows will throw an error saying that the USB malfunctioned last time it was plugged in and could not be recognized by Windows.

If you Google around, you will find other people having the same "semaphore" issue with various USB3 drives and enclosures. However, that is not an excuse as plenty of other USB3 drives and enclosures do not have that issue.

The problem can be avoided by booting on a live USB install of any Linux distro to do the transfer, or by playing a video in loop from any of the 2 drives in the device while the transfer is going, though I have not extensively tested the later.

I asked for help in Mediasonic's forums, but they were entirely useless in helping me solve this issue. They suggested the problem could be my hard drives, which it wasn't. Then they sent me to a thread on Microsoft forums that contained no solution whatsoever. They stopped responding after I posted that the device didn't have any issue on Ubunutu.

This is not appropriate behavior for such a device, hence the 3 stars. I had bought this with the intention of reducing the clutter on my desk from owning a bunch of external hard drives. However, I cannot do that due to how unreliable this device is.

Will do the trick but... Verified OwnerVerified Owner

Pros

Well, it's a USB3 dock, that for the most part, does what it says.
Cons
Fails to mention that in auto cloning mode, the drive being cloned has to be to the same size or smaller than the drive being cloned to. Not cool. Also is made of such cheap plastic I'm scared to swap the switch in back.
Summary
Overall, decent if you get it on sale, just be aware of the self cloning limitations.

Solid dock for the price! Verified OwnerVerified Owner

Pros

-legit USB 3.0 speeds
-cloning ability with a push of a button
Cons
None yet
Summary
Been using this for a few months with 2 drives in it and haven't had any issues. It stays connected all the time and is speedy in transfers/writes. Buy it on sale and save a buck.

Pros

simple to operate and Increases my storage space infinately.
Cons
refuses to do the vacuming.
Summary
this little probox is awesome!I cloned my C drive from my computer to a SSD drive with it, then I cleared the old one and I use it as an exterior storage drive.
I did the same thing to my play station 3. so easy.

The little HD duplicator that could

Pros

No software
Extremely easy to use with cloning software
Discovered that you can clone drives without connecting to computer. Put in both drives at once, and voila, hardware cloning
Cons
none.
Summary
Found myself using a lot of time trying to clone drives by plugging them both into my tower or using a multiport connector... however this device trumps them. Just play and away you go. There's even a hardware based clone utility built in. Essentially, you can clone without connecting to the computer - something the NCIX salesmen in the store said isn't available on this "inexpensive model".

Functional and simple to use

Summary
Pros:
-Low cost
-It was easy to operate for me
-It worked
-Simple instructions

Cons:
-Doesn't have RAID capabilities (can't keep them constantly mirrored, must backup manually after switching modes)
-Doesn't keep the drives cool
-Not a full enclosure

Although there are cons, I should not really complain about them since the cost is relatively low for this device. They are just things that you may require or desire that this does not have.
