(3 stars) Realiable

By:
I use this as an external HDD holder for 2 12TB. I am consolidating my video collection from various older HDD's. On occasion this involves using the adapter for old Serial HDD's. I have two of these units, one for each laptop and they are reliable. I haven't tried the clone feature yet as I am still coping everything to my new HDD's. Once I have the masters done, then I'll clone them so I'll always have a back up. But my biggest complaint is the transfer speed for a unit that is supposed to be 10GB. Nowhere near it. I get avg 32-45 MB/s on a good day. Most of the time is 5-16 MB/s. It is more like a 2.5/3.0 transfer speed with the supplied short cables. I have a Seagate 4TB & 5TB Backup Plus that gives 145+MB/s. That's because they are using the right cables (marked with Super USB (double SS) 10) . I believe they are type C and micro type B. Startech needs to drastically update the connections in order to obtain the higher transfer speeds.

Hi! Thank you for your review of our dock! We sorry to hear that the dock is performing slower than expected, those speeds are definitely lower than normal. The included cable is able to provide the full speed the dock can maintain, and even though the dock is rated for 10Gb/s, SATA III, the fastest drive speed currently, can only do 6Gb/s at top performance. This is also heavily dependent on the drives you use as older spinning drives (Non-SSDs) may not consistently hit their full speed, or may be SATA II or SATA I which have a lower data rate. Also, running our dock through a hub or other devices may impact speed as well. Since the speeds are not at where we expect them, we would like to hear more about your setup to troubleshoot the issue. You can always contact our support team 24 hours a day 5 days a week at www.startech.com/chat or 1 800 265 1844 for any product related issues. A member of our Technical Advisory team will be reaching out to you shortly by email to assist! Thank you,

(3 stars) Fast dock but missing cloning feature

By:
I never would have guess that StarTech would have a dual dock without cloning functionality - but that's what this is. It's a very fast dock but lacking a crucial feature!

Hi Steven, thank you for the feedback! You are correct that the SDOCK2U313 does not come with a cloning function. This product is designed for connecting drives to a computer via USB. If you are looking for a drive dock with the cloning feature, we recommend our SDOCK2U313R. This is the same dock with extra functionality built into it to allow cloning. If you have any further questions or ever need help with finding the right product for your needs, you can reach one of our Technical Advisors at 1-800 265-1844 or www.startech.com/chat.
