(5 stars) Works as Advertised

By:
No dropped or drive not recognized. Anyone used it with a hard drive over 6tb?

(5 stars) This device is a must for tech support!

By:
PC or laptop will not boot due to faulty hardware? No problem - your data will not be lost. The 2.5/3.5" drive docking station connects to your PC / laptop and loads the hard drive as another drive so you access your coveted data! Connecting by usb or esata the transfer speeds do not disappoint. If there was a way to have the docking station powered over a usb cable without needing the power adapter that would be the only change I would make to this device.

(5 stars) Great!!!

(5 stars) Fast, good build, cables included

By:
Not much to say other than, "It works." The rotating cover that slides down with a 3.5" drive on the dock tends to buzz as the drive vibrates in use. A dab of silicone on the edge of that cover took care of that. eSATA performance was as expected. USB 3.1 seems like overkill on a device like this since it exceeds the drive speed anyway, so provided that didn't increase the price... :) The transfers over USB are fast. If the computer and the receiving/sending drive(s) can match, then this dock will give you max speed possible with the drives in question. It just works: tested with Macbook, Windows and Linux using USB 3.1, USB 3.0, and eSATA. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

(5 stars) Must have tool for any help desk or tech repair.

By:
We gave this to our help desk and they absolutely love it. They're using it to backup hard drives before re-imaging a computer. USB 3.1 is a plus as it's much faster than our older tool which was only USB 2.0. It came with a variety of cables so you can hook it up however fits your needs best. We're using the USB-C connection which transfers very fast. The whole product feels quality built. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

(5 stars) Great USB Hard Drive adapter

By:
This product is very simple to use. If you have a PC die but still need to retrieve data from the SATA drives then just plug them in to this device and your all set. What makes this even better is that it does not matter if it is a 2.5" or a 3.5" drive.

(5 stars) Solid Dock

By:
I am the computer guru in my extended family so I am constantly fixing issues with their computers. This dock makes it easy for me to backup the data before I do any work on it. It also allows me to scan it for issues and viruses as well. The dock feels solid and the cables that come with it are of good quality. It comes with three cables. Two for USB (USB to normal USB and USB to USB-C) and one e SATA cable. It also comes with multiple power plugs for different countries. Overall a solid product.

(5 stars) Great dock, Great transfer speeds

By:
Another great dock from Startech. This unit allows you to mount 2.5 or 3.5 SSD or Hard drives easily. I found the connection to be solid with the drive connection and there did not appear to be any play to cause issue with connection. I found the cables supplied to be of a good quality and no issues at all could be found. I think this is a good solid build dock and should last for many years to come. No installation issues as I tested this with both my Mac and PC. This is a simple but well built dock. The transfer speeds were what you could expect from an external dock.

(4 stars) Great Device!

By:
I connected this unit to an older laptop uisng the USB cable then swapped some SSD and IDE drives in/out. All but 1 of the IDE drives (older Segate model) where loaded, recognized and performed as if it was part of the laptop. I had the same result when connecting this to a workstation with the eSata cable. It was nice that no drivers were required. Will be handy when implementing new workstations.

(2 stars) Issues

By:
HD dock works well and as advertised. The only issue is it tends to make vibration noises from the folding cover. There is some minor humming due to vibration for the rest of the structure which can be felt to the touch.

Response from StarTech.com:
Brian, Customer Support
Hi, Thanks for your feedback. We're sorry that the dock is causing some vibration noises while in use. This behavior is somewhat expected when using mechanical drives. These docking stations are more so intended for temporary use so hopefully its just a temporary inconvenience. We will definitely consider adding some material to cushion the folding cover for our future docking stations. Thank you
