Works well, easy to use.
Linda Cummings
The attempt for the desktop was to initialize the drive disconnect from the computer and press the clone button until the unit started to blink.

Used this to make a new Time Machine backup with my old computer hard drive and works great.

It actually functions! I was hopeful but not holding my breath on the cloning function. Well, it works! As does the dock feature.

I cloned about 1,700gb of data onto a new drive. I haven't found anything corrupted by the process, and it did it in under 5 hours. Using USB 2.0 and a computer to transfer the stuff would have been a long and tedious task, which I've done before. It's also a dual dock, which allows me to use hard drives without an external drive enclosure. Backing up data is fast and easy.

LED Light Scheme: Solid blue = idle. Blue with a running/moving/flashing green = cloning in progress. Solid green/no flashing = cloning complete!

Instructions: It doesn't come with much for directions. For cloning, initialize the (equal or larger sized) target drive with a computer. Disconnect the dock from the PC, insert your hard drives, and push the 'Cloning Button' twice. NOTE: When pushing the button, I had to press and hold for about half a second for each press. I failed many times before changing how I pressed it before it would work.

After you clone a smaller drive, you may need to go into the Admin Tools 'Storage' tool to "Extend" the drive's space. Cloning a 1tb drive onto a 2tb drive will leave you with the same 1tb of space you had before until you "Extend" the partition allocation.

Hope some of this helps!

To give a little insight on how this works as a cloner. You really get no directions beyond basic functions and I see a few people saying it didn't work for them. It works it's just not intuitive and doesn't color code lights and they aren't highly visible when flashing either. Just remember the new disk your cloning to has to be the same size or larger than the original/source drive. To clone an operating system drive.
1. Unit off and insert source disk into slot 1, target disk into slot 2 this will overwrite whatever is in slot 2 so better not get it wrong.
2. Power unit up and leave it disconnected from your PC
3. Push the small button on the back for copy and notice the light begins pulsing. Easiest to see straight on from the front as then you can see the LED's. These will stop pulsing when the clone is finished.
4. My 250 gig laptop drives took about an hour and it was only about 1/3 full.

The new drive boots right up in your system. Win 7 operating system drive cloned.

For simple copying purposes you can use it in windows like any other driver enclosure or clone as stated above for data or an operating system drive. Windows 7 didn't like hot swapping drives in and out while it is was on however turning it off and swapping them and then turn back on worked fine. I suggest powering it off swap your drives and turn back on again and it should be fine. At $30 this is a steal for the cloning capability alone. By the time you do a system load and all the updates and loading your customer software your talking 2-4 hours a PC, cloning will save you exponential time.

Color Name: 2 bay
I'm on a Macintosh and I gave this docking station four out of five stars not because it doesn't work but because it came with no User Guide or instructions. On the other hand, when I had problems with it, I called Sabrent tech support and, while they weren't immediately Mac-savvy, they did call me back later (!) and connected me with someone who could help. In the end, the problems I was having weren't due to Mac-vs.-PC. What I had to do was test the dual dock in a number of combinations to determine what it would and wouldn't do. The result: It works as advertised. It can be used to clone one drive from another, when disconnected from the computer, or, when connected, it serves as a two-bay hard drive dock. The cloning function is described in sufficient detail on the Amazon page, under "Product description". And that info constitutes all the instructions you get with it. What they don't tell you is: when you use it as a dual drive bay, once you format a drive in either bay, it becomes bay-specific. It will not be readable in the other bay. It's as if the software required to distinguish the two drives for purposes of cloning from bay 1, the source, to bay 2, the destination, is embedded in the formatting of each disc. The distinction won't be recognized in a different docking station, however. So you can take out either formatted drive and use it successfully in a different dock or enclosure, but if you format it in bay 1 of the Dual Drive bay you can't use it in bay 2 without re-formatting it. So if it comes out of Bay 1, it must go back into Bay 1, and not into Bay 2. Once you know that, it works fine. Figuring all that out took a while, with a lot of disc errors and restarts, and all of it could have been included in a Quickstart Guide or on the Amazon product page, but it wasn't. So the device works, tech support is good, but it needs more up-front documentation.

"Plug and Play" doesn't always mean what it sounds like, but this device couldn't have been easier to set up and start using. Plug the drive(s) into the toaster (the two slots on top), plug in the power and the USB cables, and press the power button. Windows 7 found the drivers right away and mounted the drives in less than a minute. Now I have full access to the two drives I removed from my old laptop. It couldn't have been simpler.

(NOTE: I don't have any USB3 ports on this system, but it worked just fine with my USB2 ports.)

I can use this box for:

* Occasional access to bare drives
* Full backup to external bare drives
* Disk to disk copy from one drive to the other

There is a "copy" button on the back of the box that will start the process of duplicating Drive 1 to Drive 2. This is great if you have to stage a lot of machines and want to use a standard image for every computer. Just be careful not to mix up the positions of the drives, or you'll overwrite the wrong one. The copy button also requires you to press it twice to avoid accidental activation. It would be a shame to accidentally wipe out a good drive if you didn't mean to.

This is incredibly useful. I can't believe this much functionality is in such an affordable box (currently about $29). I've used Sabrent products in the past and had good experience with them.

I was provided this item for review.
