Style Name: USB 3.0 & eSATASize: 4 Bay Verified Purchase
I personally have not experienced any of the problems expressed in the negative reviews on this product. I purchased two of these units back in August 2011, and have been using them for 6 months. I have them both attached to separate USB 3.0 ports on my Dell XPS 17 laptop, and they work perfectly.

This unit also works with USB 2.0 ports (though USB 3.0 is much faster, of course).

BIG CAVEAT: I need to say that I don't really swap hard drives much in these docking stations. I have swapped hard drives several times, and it's gone without a hitch, but that's not my normal usage pattern. I am using these StarTech USB 3.0 docking stations to provide my laptop with huge external storage, and I don't swap the drives as a general rule. The drives just sit in the docking station and hum along, doing their thing with great transfer speeds. I know that other reviewers have noted odd behavior when swapping drives. I haven't seen that odd behavior myself, but I also don't swap often. If you are going to be swapping drives frequently, you might see some problems, I can't say. I just haven't observed any of these problems myself.

I have been using these docking stations essentially constantly for the past 6 months. They have run for weeks at a time with nary a hiccup.

I have not seen the problems reported by another reviewer that when reading or writing to one drive in the docking station, it interferes with the speed of transfers of another drive in the docking station. I have been using these drives very heavily, copying huge numbers of files at a time from one drive to another within the docking station, simultaneously editing or playing back other files on one or more of the drives, and it all works smooth as silk.

I've used this with a couple Win7 64-bit machines. I got this dock after my latest NewerTech dock died within 15 minutes, I was slightly hesitant due to the lack of reviews but I wanted eSATA+USB3, and how much worse could I do? So far I'm quite pleased with it, using USB 3 and spinning drives I'm getting transfer speeds on par with internal SATA indicating the drives are the limiting factor. The fan is a nice feature, I usually use a separate USB fan with my other docks, this is nicely incorporated into the dock. It feels solid -- from the images I was afraid it might be a somewhat flaky add-on, but no. The placement means that in addition to cooling the drive it acts to shield the drive's circuit board. On mine it's quiet even on the max setting (I can't hear it over the drive at least) and at that setting keeps the drive fairly cool (just barely warm to the touch after copying 1TB onto a 2TB WD Caviar Black drive). The dock shuts off when you "eject" it in Windows which is a nice feature -- some other docks I have when I eject the drive in the dock I find the drive suddenly spinning up again. So far I'm pleased, if I have any problems in the future I'll update this.

Style Name: USB 3.0 & eSATASize: 1 Bay
Years ago, I abandoned HDD enclosures for the open-air architecture of a dock. I've purchased various docks as they've been released with chipsets that progressively supported larger densities. However, they were all not quite what I needed. Until now.

I'd always actively cooled a docked drive by positioning a case fan behind the HDD. This was always sort of a pain; I had to rig a 12V adapter, which made plugging/unplugging the fan fun, not to mention often knocking it over in the process (I had wire guards installed on both sides to prevent damage to the fan blades AND my fingers). It also took up some real estate on the desk. But, I always found two constants: The larger the drive, the hotter it ran, and during large data transfers, having the fan running kept the drive much cooler.

I had been using two older Startech docks for the past year. One had arrived DOA, which Amazon promptly replaced, and both had worked flawlessly since. But, there was still the fan annoyances. Then, I saw that Startech had released this new model with an integrated fan. YES! I have 20 external HDD's, and I manage a lot of data, so I require multiple docks.

Some excellent new features of this new dock:

1.) The dock detects PC sleep or shut down, and auto-powers itself off.

2.) There is a manual eject button on the front; on the older Startech models, you had to yank the drive out of the connector while holding the dock down.

3.) There is a thumbwheel fan speed controller on the side of the unit: Cranked to the max, the unit has a definite audible whine.

Style Name: USB 3.0Size: 2 Bay
Although I have not used this particular StarTech USB 3.0 SATA docking station for 2 hard drives, I have been using its big brother, the same product for 4 SATA hard drives (StarTech.com SATDOCK4U3E 4 Bay eSATA USB 3.0 to SATA Hard Drive Docking Station for 2.5/3.5 HDD). I purchased two of those 4-bay StarTech units back in August 2011, and have been using them for 6 months. I have them both attached to separate USB 3.0 ports on my Dell XPS 17 laptop, and they work perfectly. So, even though I have been using the big brother of this product, I thought it might be useful to someone for me to pass along my experience with it, because I would imagine that using this 2-bay version of the product is essentially identical.

This unit also works with USB 2.0 ports (though USB 3.0 is much faster, of course).

BIG CAVEAT: I need to say that I don't really swap hard drives much in these docking stations. I have swapped hard drives several times, and it's gone without a hitch, but that's not my normal usage pattern. I am using these StarTech USB 3.0 docking stations to provide my laptop with huge external storage, and I don't swap the drives as a general rule. The drives just sit in the docking station and hum along, doing their thing with great transfer speeds. If you are going to be swapping drives frequently, I can't say one way or the other if you'll run into problems. I just haven't observed any such problems myself, and the product is designed to handle seamless hard disk swapping without having to turn off your computer or anything.
