I've owned about 4 StarTech docking stations over the years, and I travel with one in my briefcase every day when I make tech calls, so I was excited when they asked me to review their latest dock.

To me, a drive dock is an essential part of every technician's workbench, and it's invaluable in the field. This newer model improves on almost every feature of previous generations, by adding USB 3.0 and eSATA III, it gained speed and flexibility.

The older models didn't have a fan, which is a great feature for when you plan on using a drive for extended amounts of time, or for when you are dealing with a failing drive that is running hot. You can adjust the speed of the fan, or even turn it off when you don't need it.

This dock is main for technical people, but it could also be used by anyone who would like the flexibility to use low cost internal OEM drives.

I hope you found this review helpful. Questions and comments are welcome!

Works fairly well. It is a little cheap feeling. The fan is quiet and adjustable (or turn off), which is great. I mistakenly mistook the button looking oval on the top to be the power, and when I pushed in gently, it sunk in. But it was only an LED power indicator, the power button being on the back.

Prior to seeing this drive dock at a friend's home, I was using Thermaltake BlacX Duet docks to move and back up data on my computers. To be fair, I've used the Thermaltake product for years with no complaints. What made me switch over to these Star Tech docks is that not only are they USB 3.0, but they have a fan that keeps the drive cool as well. Buy one of these and a couple of cheap bare bones drives and kiss more expensive stand alone backup storage goodbye.

Nice - good electronics - cool drive with the fan (which has a dust screen filtering the air coming in). The fan really does solve the only issue (hot disks) that I had with my previous StarTech dock.

Had an old dock and had a lot of problems with the HD, which was conveniently just short of warranty expiration so they sent me a new one. Put the new drive in the cradle and couldn't make it work to save my life. Went cradle shopping and found this one. Nice construction, and the new drive fired up right away. It's future ready with the USB 3.0, but I'm using the E-SATA now. The fan is a nice touch because I can keep the external drive 10 degrees cooler than the ones inside the PC at below half of full fan speed. I feel this is a good product - it is working well for me. I have puchased other StarTech products in the past and have always been happy with the results.

Works perfectly, faster than any of the alternatives that I've tested. I like the fan to dissipate the heat off of the drive, but it's pretty noisy for my home office. I still use the fan, since performance and reliability are more important to me than the noise. But it is annoying.

This is an absolutely outstanding hard drive dock. I have been using hard drive docking stations for years and this is by far the best designed unit I have ever used. Prior to purchasing this Startech dock I had been a user of Vantec Nexstar products without issue. However my recent purchase of an upgraded product from that company resulted in a very unpleasant experience. I would experience random disconnects over USB 3.0 with the competitors product and a general unreliability overall.

I'm delighted to report that with the Startech USB 3.0 and eSata hard drive dock I am experiencing no issues whatsoever and everything is functioning beautifully. Furthermore there are no size limitations when it comes to the drives you want to use with this unit, I am currently using an 8 TB Seagate NAS drive with my dock and I'm experiencing no issues whatsoever.

Also, I cannot stress enough how useful the included fan is for keeping your drives cool when in use. The 8 TB drives that I use with my dock were getting exceptionally hot to the touch when used with the competitors product. I am absolutely amazed at how efficiently the Startech dock keeps my hard drive cool, my drive is no longer hot to the touch and is actually the complete opposite and I can now touch my hard drive at any time without fear of burning myself.

I have been in the technology and computer business for over 20 years and this is by far the best hard drive dock I have ever used. If you are in the market for a hard drive dock this is definitely without question the one to purchase. It is a little bit more expensive than competitors products but the old saying of you get what you pay for is never more true than in this instance, trust me this dock is worth every penny!

This docking station is exactly as advertised and works very well.
I tested this unit with both eSATA as well as USB3.0 and the speed was very good... if not exceptional... and exactly as expected.
The fan is quiet, even at full speed, but it has a variable speed dial on the side so you can turn it right down or shut it off completely if necessary.
Unless I was doing a huge backup to my 3TB WD drive, I left it running on very low speed.
The fan has a filter that you can pop off on the back, but to replace the filter would take a bit of creativity... or as I tended to do, just wash it under the sink and replace once dry.
The orange power light on the back lets you know if the unit has power, and a nice blue oval light on the top tells you when a disk is inserted. The light flashes when accessing drive. I also find this light is of a perfect brightness level.
The other thing I likes is that the power cable is actually of a useful length and not to short which makes it easy to grab the unit and place next to a media center. In My case, I placed this next to my Minix Neo H8-Plus and was able to access all of the media.
You can push the disk eject button to eject disks, but I found that to be more convenient for the 2.5 inch drives vs the larger drives which are just as easily lifted straight up. The fan is also low enough not to get in the way.
If you are looking for a quality docking station to backup drives, or even use as an everyday drive, this unit should definitely be at the top of your list.... especially if accessing via eSATA where the speed and performance are fantastic.
A special thanks to StarTech.com for providing me the unit to conduct a fair and unbiased review.
