Pros

USB 3, dual bays
Cons
Not reliable, disconnects at random or won't connect at all
Summary
I have RMA'd one unit and the replacement has failed too. I don't recommend this device.

Pros

- good solid finish
- works as advertised
Cons
- none
Summary
I have a lot of HDDs and data to move around. At my desktop I have two dangling SATA and power cables, but such a solution does not look clean and is not feasible with my notebook, my Raspberry Pi, my router. This docking station is the solution to my needs. I do not need to power up the full server now to access the backup drives. I just plug this device into the USB port of the laptop and it works. I can access FAT / NTFS / ext2/3/4 / UFS and even ZFS formatted partitions. It works in Linux and in Windows. Plug and play at its best.

Pros

Setup is super easy
Works awesome on my USB 3 port
Cons
Power to drives is insufficient
Summary
I have 2 x 2tb Seagate drives. Device will not power them up if both are plugged in. I need to have one plugged in first and then plug in the second after the first has spun up. Other than that, this is a great little setup.

Pros

- USB 3.0
- Dual Docking station
- accepts 2.5" and 3.5" SSD/HDD
Cons
- STOCK FIRMWARE MAY BE DEFECTIVE: the firmware that came with my docking station was causing the device to disconnect randomly
Summary
WARNING: Stock Firmware MAY be faulty and you will need to update  it!!!

The firmware was causing the device to randomly drop  the connection. One second you're transfer files or doing something critical like cloning a drive, the next second the drives aren't even connected to the computer.

Only today have I update d the firmware (successfully), and it might or might not, but I am remaining hopeful.

Otherwise, I think it's a good docking station, and it had definitely the potential to work exceptionally.

Pros

Ease of installation
Cons
Only one 3.5" and 2.5" drive sleeve !
Summary
Works great when plugged into my router. Now serves as a backup drive.
The second slot is useful when I need to read/copy data from system drives that can still function, but won't boot because of a "broken" Windows installation.

Pros

Wow it's fast! And sleek too!
Cons
That I never had one before now!
Summary
Wow, straight out of the box and less than an hour later I'm cloning drives in Windows 7 x64. This thing is quick. I so needed this and am so glad to finally get it.
No cons, just wish I had one of these a long time ago!

Pros

Looks good on your desk, especially if you have the ladies over.
Works as expected.
Reminds me of the good old Nintendo(tm)(c) days where you blow the dust off and swap cartridges back and forth.
Cons
More desk space taken up.
Not a full dust cover for the 2.5" slot.
Reminds of the goold old Nintendo(tm)(c) days where you needed to blow dust off the cartridges.
Summary
I bought this to start a backup system with some older SATA hard drives. This peice looks quite nice on the desk, and has operated quite smoothly so far, backing up and transferring files.

Would be more favorable if they designed it with a full dust cover protecting the 2.5" area of the slot as well.

Pros

Nothing ... disappointing piece of hardware ...
Cons
Does not appear to work with Linux at all.
Summary
It consistently drops the USB connection at arbitrary times ... and during this behaviour it corrupts an NTFS device that works perfectly well on a standard USB connection. I've never heard of a USB device that cares what OS is running. I've tested it with XP and it appears to work. But even in this mode ... copying a disk to another disk mounted in the second slot is doomed to failure. I've contacted Thermaltake tech support ... haven't heard back from them for three weeks. Another message got blasted off today ... we'll see ...

Pros


- Thermaltake
- USB 3.0
- DUAL
- 3 Years Warranty
Cons

- NO eSATA
- Price without PM
Summary

I have installed one WD 2TB black (WD2002FAEX).

No issue so far on Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64.

The only downside is there is no eSATA.

Pros

-Dual Port (Easy Swap)
-SATA3 Plug & Play (FAST!!! for external)
-Self Powered, Notebook Friendly
-Backwards compatible
-Small footprint (Portable)
-Solid Construction & Appealing Design (It's Black!)
Cons
-Little Pricy, Get it on Sale/Rebate (Single Port, if that's all you require)
-Does run a little WARM, Give the device room to breathe (Monitor HDDs)
-Plug is a brick pack, would prefer standard 3-prong plug or extended 3-prong pack (More annoying than an issue, easy to compensate)
Summary
Great for HDD Backup/Swapping. As for running warm? I have a NAS in RAID1 (dual 2T 3.5s) that runs warm and that device has a fan/cooling system. Obviously, if you run it too much... it gets warm! I would recommned product, and would purchase another if I required it. Sorry, was not tested with larger that 2T, unable to comment on compatibility and functionality with larger HDDs. Tested on XP 32-bit, Vista 32-bit, and Win 7 64-bit without issue.
