Color: USB3.0 & eSATA Dock Verified Purchase
For a while I've been contemplating the idea to get a docking station to have the ability to view and to prep hard drives without having to open my PC case every single time. I tried to stay away from loose cable adapters and upright docking stations as some of those caused me to lose a drive due to a short circuit and the upright are easy to knock down (You know what I mean if you have toddlers). The last thing you want is that your drive get a hard bump while spinning.

So, when I saw Orico HDD docking station I liked the idea of a horizontal docking station, as I explored the specs more I also liked the options between eSATA or USB 3.0. In general the docking station it's 95% well built with the exception of the power button (as another reviewer noted). It feels a little bit flimsy when you push and it gives the sensation the button will pop-out. So, if you are getting this, try to be gentle when your first power on until to get the feel for it and to apply the right amount of pressure. Performance-wise, the docking station was able to deliver file transfers 90MB/sec. on some big file transfers I performed from a Windows network share to the drive.

Both eSATA and USB 3.0 worked without problems on my Gigabyte motherboard and under Windows 7 SP1. I used File Scavenger and EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition and they both worked fine with my station and a 2TB Seagate drive. I was able to recover and repartition a drive. One observation, the airflow beneath the drive it's limited and close to none, make sure if you are performing an extensive operation with any given drive that you have proper ventilation or cooling in the room to avoid drive overheating. The unit ships with all you need: Power supply, eSATA cable, USB 3.0 cable and some basic documentation.

Color: USB3.0 & eSATA Dock Verified Purchase
Delivered today. It seems to be well made. The housing is a somewhat heavy and sturdy assembly of hefty plastic. The power, USB 3.0 and eSata connectors are well supported and do not wiggle about. There are little rubber pads, so this gadget won't be sliding around my table top. Both the USB cable and the eSata cables are thick and are about a meter long. Shouldn't have any problem connecting from a floor standing PC to my desk top. There is a little blue LED indicating power status and a red LED shows disk activity. I have an older system so speed is not blazing fast. Windows is reporting 30MB/sec as I'm copying files from an internal drive to the first generation WD Sata I that I am using for an external drive. This is also using an internal adapter card which I know is a slow USB 3.0 implementation. I'm happy, since the drive is recognized and I'm able to write to the external drive.
Initially, my older external drive was not recognized and I thought the Orico was DOA. I tried a different disk drive which I knew was good and it was recognized without any problems. After that I tried the older drive again and now it works, I don't have any idea why it didn't work at first and now it seems to be working fine.
Have not tried the eSata connnection, that will be needed when I upgrade to a new machine in the distant future.
The included instructions were all in Chinese, so that was tossed, but its pretty straight forward to connect it up.
I'm pretty sure the Orico is not supporting hot swappable disk drives. I think that powering it off before removing the disk drive would be the best approach.
I could only wish for some small lever thingie in detaching the disk drive from the Orico, but that is really being picky on my part.
Update: Wanted to let everyone know that this dock works fine with a Western Digital 4TB Green drive. My older dock from four years ago had no idea what to do with that large a hard drive.

This is a solid, tool-free SATA to USB 3.0 drive caddy.

The speed is excellent, and the build quality was surprisingly good in this price range. It handles 2.5 and 3.5 inch drives equally well, and it made an archiving project I am doing with many years' worth of hard drives from now defunct computers very easy.

If I could wish for one thing, it would be that the caddy would be made from something that disperses heat a little better, but the open construction means that heat build up is not really a problem anyway.

This drive allows you to easily slide in an HDD or SSD into the bay and allows you to use a USB 3.0 or 6 Gbps SATA connection. The connectors and all were very solid and I was able to insert and use my HDD with no problems. It did not require any software drivers to work with my Mac.

I did not have any issues with this product and it worked well.

Pros:
-Supports 2.5" and 3.5" sized drives
-has an LED for the disk activity
-power button to turn bay on and off
-Ac adapter, USB 3.0, and SATA cable included
-Solid design and good materials
-Mac and PC compatible

Cons:
-None

Color: USB3.0 & eSATA Dock
I've purchased 3 of these from another site - (same Orico part number). Ownership is 1+year to ~ 7 months. Power button on one broke and had to be fixed. Over time, all of them have failed within the last 3-4 months. These are not reliable units. My 40 year career has been in IT support for businesses up to 30 servers and 2500 workstations. Performance prior to failure seemed good. These are used in 3 different locations, all on UPS power. Office environments. Not worth the shipping cost and time to return for warranty coverage. Do NOT buy these unless you want a disposable, unreliable unit.
