Biggest problem: Some 3.5" drive combinations do not initialise (when paired); maybe inrush current too high for the included power adapter.
I ordered 2x of these after being very satisfied with the Sabrent USB 3 to sata 2.5" (UASP) cable. However, the units are a hollow shell of molded ABS plastic. So light and resonant that 1/4 of the weight of the unit (~95g) is a weigh-down chunk of steel internally fastened to the base of the unit.
It's now obviously a rebadged low-end run of the mill unit. There is no drive dampening whatsoever. The connectors bear the weight and vibration of the drives. All the physical guiding to insert a drive is the actual flimsy flaps, which means damaging the sata connections on the unit or the drives will only be a matter of time (crooked insertion, etc). The drives can also become trapped in the flap door on the way out, easily ripping one of the flaps like another reviewer found out.
Electronics are cheap but not too bad. The controller (ASMedia ASM1156) works well enough, but may not be considered 'reliable' in data storage terms.
Overall I don't recommend and would not put any critical data through these. Some may think it's worth ~£20, but I dont think it's worth the risk.
First, the power button is on the back, which means you must reach around the drives to turn the unit on/off, that could be an issue if you knock the unit over with the drives powered up.
Further, the power-on indicator LED is topside and unless you're directly above the unit, it can be hard to see, particularly in a room with overhead lighting.
The build quality, like most things manufactured today, is cheap, cheap, cheap.
These are all of lesser importance provided the unit continues to function properly. Time will tell.
Revised: October 30th, 2019
The unit failed, and it can not be detected by any of my systems. Tried for hours to resolve, ended up just throwing this garbage into the recycle bin. There's another $40.00 thrown away.
I've only cloned one drive, and that worked flawlessly, doesn't even need to be connected to the PC to perform the clone (untested, I had it plugged in at the time).
It also looks smart sitting on your desk. The only negative is that there is a more expensive model, same make, that looks better. As that model is more expensive this model still receives 5 stars. Very good product made even better if you can get it at a discount.
as a simple dock it allows access to two connected drives at the same time and makes swapping data between drives extremely simple and for the versatility and simplicity of the dock it is easily worth five stars, so why only three then i hear you ask
had one of the flaps covering the drive slots not been hanging off when unboxed i would not have hesitated in giving five stars but as it looked as though the covering flap had not been fitted correctly/damaged during assembly i am unable to do so.
apart from this issue i am extremely happy with it .
However, I proceeded and fit another 3.5" drive in the other dock and had no problems with the doors.
The tool powered up and Win10 immediately spotted it and made the two drives look like normal disks, so everything working as expected. No drivers were needed, no setup, literally just plug&play. The disks were originally formatted with Linux EXT3 and NTFS (normal windows) partitions, and the windows partitiions came up as new drive letters as you should expect. (The linux partitions didn't, but I am guessing a linux O/S would have seen them too.)
Happy with the docking station, and hoping the broken door doesn't cause problems in longer use (the connector inside is no longer protected from dust and the elements, so I'll just have to be careful.)
