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!

"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.

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.

If you are looking for a dual bay external hard drive docking station, chances are pretty high you are either an IT person that wants easy clone options or an enthusiast that wants an easy way to move from a smaller drive to larger.

The Sabrent USB 3 docking station works amazingly well. If you want to clone a drive, you don't even need to plug the drive into a host computer. Simply drop the two drives into the proper bays (ensure you are choosing the proper drive bay or you WILL lose data!). Press the copy button twice and boom, a while later you will have a cloned drive. This even seems to work with encrypted hard drives (using McAfee EEPC) - encryption is retained and the drive will boot.

If you are moving from a smaller drive to a larger, just remember to either partition the left over space, or if you are using a newer OS, resize the boot partition to take up the entire drive.

The design of the bays allow for full sized SATA drives or the smaller 2.5 to 3.5mm drives as well without an adapter. I've used other devices similar to this and needed an extra bay for non-desktop sized HDDs - that's a pain. This works well without them.

I've connected this to my computer to transfer files from one drive in bay 1 and another in 2. Speed is quite nice. I've also just plugged a single drive into the device and copied files to that. The speed is on par with the external HDDs I have using USB3 and are not bus powered (meaning external hard drive plugged into a separate power source instead of being USB powered).

Overall:

If you have the need for this capability, the clone capability, the extra cost above Sabrent's single drive option is definitely worth it.
