Pros

Good looking, hard made, mechanism really tough, plug n play.
Cons
Some issues related below
Summary
Sata port must accept port multiplier setting to make both drive runs at the same time. Check your hardware configuration, there is no way to make both drive run if the Sata ports doesn't allow port multiplier.

Pros

Dual slot, had USB 3, eSata
Cons
SATA Port replication needed, not mentioned. Flimsy construction. Locks up with WD Greens
Summary
An ok dock, it does what it is supposed to do, nothing more, nothing less.

In order to access both drives via eSATA your motherboard must support the Port Replication feature. This was not mentioned on the box.

When using this with WD Greens, this dock will not wake them up if they spin down. You will be required to force shut down the device and reconnect. I had to use a program called NoSleepHDD to write a small text file every 10 minutes to prevent the drive from sleeping.

I would have expected something of higher quality given the price, but this just doesn't cut it.

Pros

-Two Drive Slots
-eSATA
-Supports 2.5 inch and 3.5 inch drives
-Easy ejection button
Cons
-Flap on one of the slots broke after a few uses
Summary
This hard drive dock works very well. Perfect for when you have extra drives laying around and want more storage, or for doing data recovery from broken machines. The flap on one of my slots broke after only 2-3 uses but that does not affect operation.

Pros

Convenience
sturdy build
Cons
price?
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.

Pros

Works sometimes...
Cons
Works sometimes... then stops working all together...
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... Either I got a dud, or this is the cheapest made, worst quality product you can buy. DO NOT BUY THIS. At least I got a $15 rebate... still a loss though... Can I get my money back, or get it fixed? Probably not worth my time to even look into a 1 year warranty fix... I don't want this garbage. Get a cable, or a dock from a reputable company.

Pros

works well, reliable
Cons
a tad expensive
Summary
This device has docked all of my hared drives perfectly. Best to use the eSATA port instead of USB 2 as you will get much better transfer speeds

Pros

USB 3, dual bays
Cons
Not reliable, disconnects randomly, or gives USB device error
Summary
I have RMA'd one unit and the replacement has failed the same way. I don't recommend this product. Search the Internet for other reviews.

Pros

Cheap, Esata, 2 drives.
Cons
Need to replug esata when turned on.
Summary
Very fast transfer speeds with esata. I'm not sure if it's my drivers or something, but it has an auto-off feature, and it kicks in when I turn the unit on when the computer is already on. I just need to re-plug the esata in the computer and it works fine. But it's a bit of a hassle.
