  • Doesn't mention Max HDD capacity
    Reviewed by Mark - March 18, 2020

    Bought this 18/03/2020 at Best Buy. Plugged two 500 GB HDD in and viola, no problem. Then plugged in my 4Tb HDD. Computer doesn't see it. After scouting the internet I came across some previous issues and discovered that the maximum capacity is 2 TB. Suggest that such information be put on the box, now that 2tb HDD are not really that large, as you can now easily buy upto 12 tb. Drives. Taking this back now.

  • Simple to use - handy to have around
    Verified BuyerReviewed by mikeroeder - October 19, 2017

    If you're like me you have hard drives from previous machines in storage-- just in case you need a drive for a machine in the future. It seems like I'm always moving drives between boxes for different projects. The Thermaltake drive dock is super handy to have around and it's reasonably priced. Since the dock has two slots, I was recently able to pull data off of a mirrored set of drives, which saved my bacon with a machine that had a corrupted boot loader. Now I'm going through some older drives of sub-1TB size that I want to recycle and I'm double checking the drives before I wipe them and this dock is making that process painless.

  • Excellent Docking Station
    Verified BuyerReviewed by STORM - March 6, 2017

    If you have a hard-drive that is sitting out of it's case then you need a docking station or something similar to read your files. This docking station does just that and you don't have to worry about your hard-drive falling out of said station or getting damaged. This station locks down your hard-drive and connects easily to your computer. The price is a bit much, but you are getting 2 docking stations. I've tried to run both docking stations, however, I wasn't able to pull up both devices. It might be do to the fact one of my hard-drives crapped the bed. So if you want your files and you want them now...this is a good start.

  • Incomplete...
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Jtajk1995 - March 5, 2016

    My review for this drive would be better if I would be able to use. However, the 3.0 USB card that I recently purchased that was quote guaranteed to work with windows 10 has yet to work other than that I have nothing negative to say. I will say that the instructions that come with it are quite thorough. The drives insert and the jack quite easily. Just note to self make sure you know where the eject button is. The packaging is green equals very reduced so there's very little to throw away. And also the power cord as well as the USB cable are all included and are not as friendly as some products have previously included.

  • This works perfectly
    Verified BuyerReviewed by TomD - January 18, 2018

    I bought this nice little unit to clone a drive and also to recover data out of a broken computer it was so easy to use and it was absolutely perfect for my use The hard drives just slide in like a video game cartridge the computer automatically recognizes the drive and gives you very very fast access to the contents of the drive utilizing USB 3.0 going from drive to drive is extremely fast as well What I mean by this is actually installing 2 hard drives whether they be 3.5 or 2.5 laptop drives you can actually copy drive to drive clone the drive to another drive and this all happens extremely fast Fine I'm very happy with the purchase and I would definitely recommend
