Great purchase

 

I do alot of hard drive swapping at home when doing backups or retrieving data from a computer that has hardware problems and can't boot. This is by far the best purchase I made this year. The eSATA ports make awesomely fast transfers and they still...

Saved Some Data - Excellent Product

 

Whomever invented this one should get huge kudos. I had a MoBoard fried by a close lightning strike but the drive looked good. Got one of these beauties, installed the drive and was able to save data. Don't know why the drive survived, but this...

iStarUSA XAGE902DU-SAU Plastic (ABS) 2.5"/3.5" Black USB2.0 & eSATA Dual SATA Docking Station

 

It would be the perfect solution for my needs if it had the flexibility of USB and at least comparable speeds to usb 2.0 external drive units.

It is convenient to swap out hard drives quickly

When using eSata, you have to turn on the unit before you turn on the computer. Also, the transfer speeds even with eSata are much slower than typical external usb drives

Very Convenient ...

 

This is a good choice for anyone who wants to externalize their SATA hard drive(s) -- perfect for easy drive/partition cloning. Includes both USB (acceptable performance) or eSATA (best performance) port(s). The retail package I received included 2...

It is good, until it failed

 

I hope the unit lasted longer than it did. If it did the unit would be a 5 star product.

It works as advertised, very convienient to have dual drives available. The power switch is a nice addition since it lets you turn individual drives on and off

After a month and a half of use the unit drive 1 got stuck in the on position. No matter what I do the unit will not turn off. So I am going to RMA it. Lets hope the second unit isn't a lemon like this one

Excellent unit

 

I am amazed by these companies who sell these units and have no support at all. My suggestion is if you have ANY difficulty whatsoever with these units, pack it up and send it back to newegg. Don't waste time on it because you wont get support. If it...

Got this unit for transferring video files ; It works great and never had any problems with it for over 8 months now

The DIN power connector sometime come loose, they should have done a better snap in connector. If you don't touch it, it is OK ; There is no service or any kind of reply from this company. They ignore all emails, no matter to whom you send it ; Took me...

This works great! Plug and play and it comes up just like a flash drive. It seems a bit pricey but they'll probably get cheaper as they get more common.

This unit is straightforward, connect and go. USB is a bit slow but doable. Thinking of getting a eSATA PCIe card to speed things up. I do a lot of video so this is is helpful. If you don't see the drive then you'll have to format it first via...

I've had this unit for about a month now, and it's worked without any problems. Two issues: you need two (2) eSata connectors for this unit, and they both need to be connected. This is not stated clearly in the product page or documentation. Second,...

So far So Good...

 

I wanted an external hard drive, however I see alot of reviews of 1tb drives with esata having connection issues. For about the same price, I was able to buy a 1tb hard drive & this enclosure and everything works well. In fact, for the future, it will...

quick access to your hard drives. Power switches for each drive. Supports both standard size's

Nothing that I can think of, everything just works. If I had to be picky, the size is kinda big, so you will need to have a little space. I have my sitting ontop of the pc case
