Easy and fast for drives cloning, data transfer
Reviewed in the United States on December 21, 2017
I have been using "cable" or the harddisk SATA to USB adapter for a while and found out the cable was degrading so as the speed, so it's time to find a replacement and bought this one as a replacement. I am satisfied with the quality of the product, features and the speed of data transfer.
There are several notes and highlights here:
This is not an enclosure nor raid design, so if you are looking for those functions, you probably need to find something else.
With that said, it is more for "temporary" or short-term use, especially you need to duplicate or hook up bare harddrives for cloning, data transfer, backup, forensic and the like. It makes things and operation much easier.
Both bays can be used. I have tried putting in one 3.5 and one 2.5 drives without problems, Windows and Linux machines can recognize them right away.
Build is solid and have a solid grip on the desk that it won't move around.
The offline clone is awesome feature, especially you need to do some forensic task. Make a clone in very short time, without connecting to PC and just clone the drives with a single button on the dock, can't be easier than that, it comes with 25% increments progress LEDs to show the cloning process progress.
USB 3.0 data speed, even if you just hook it up for backup your old computer's harddrive, it's easy and fast, of course, your new computer requires a USB 3.0 port in order to achieve that lightning speed.
Recommended if you have multiple harddrives from time to time to do data transfer or cloning, it will be a very helpful and convenient tool!
