Overview

The SDOCK2U33EB Dual 2.5/3.5" SATA hard drive docking station lets you dock and swap hard drives from your desktop or laptop computer simultaneously using a single eSATA or USB port.

For fast performance and efficient data transfers when connected through eSATA, the docking station supports full SATA III transfer speeds -- up to 6 Gbps. For universal compatibility, the dock can be connected through USB 3.0 with transfer speeds up 5 Gbps plus support for UASP, which supports performance up to 70% faster than conventional USB 3.0 when paired with a UASP-enabled host controller to utilize the full potential of your SATA III hard drives. See our UASP testing results below for further details.

The hard drive docking station supports the fastest drive technologies including SATA III (6 Gbps), hybrid drives and solid state drives (SSD), ensuring you can save time by getting the most out of your drive performance. 

Extend the value of this hard drive docking station further with the addition of our SATA to IDE Hard Drive Adapter (SAT2IDEADP), allowing easy insertion of any 2.5 or 3.5in. IDE hard drive into a SATA hard drive dock.

(3 stars) A decent HDD dock station

By:
I bought this HDD docking station a few days ago and I am reasonably satisfied with it. The build quality is OK (not great, but not bad either) and the docking station is fairly easy to operate. Here are some extra information regarding the connectivity of the HDD docking station Startech has failed to provide: - When connected the HDD docking station through E-SATA with both drive bays populated, only the disk in bay 2 is visible/accessible. - When connected the HDD docking station through E-SATA and USB 3.0 with both drive bays populated, only the disk in bay 2 is visible/accessible. Basically when you connect this HDD docking station through E-SATA, only 1 drive at the time is visible/accessible (probably due to E-SATA limitations) Overall rating: 7/10

Response from StarTech.com:
Barry, Customer Support
Hello, Thanks for taking the time to leave your review. We wanted to offer some clarification on a few points you made. When you connect the docking station to your PC via eSATA, you will only see one drive if you are connecting to an eSATA port that does not have "port multiplier" capabilities. We have a very helpful FAQ that explains the topic in greater detail. https://www.startech.com/faq/hard_drive_accessories_port_multiplier#SDOCK2U33EB Please feel free to contact us again if you have any further questions. Thank you,

(5 stars) Very fast with usb3 operation and win 8.1 OS

By:
I have been using the docking station for about 3 weeks. tried both the e-sata connection and the USB3 cable. I using the device as a storage point for system backup. The read write speed is nearly twice the speed for the usb3 is nearly twice the spe3ed of the e-sata connection. I have not experienced issues with the HDD failing to register with the OS. the docking station has been highly reliable.
