            I used this duplicator to copy my dying HD to a new Travelstar HD (purchased through BH as well).

            This duplicator was very quick (transferred approx. 750GB in less than three hours), and didn't require much in the way of setup.

            What I didn't like is that there are almost not instructions outside of "plug stuff in and press go." The indicator lights didn't tell me much either, and instead of the progress bar showing progress, it just flashed at 25% until it finished.

                  didn't know this thing existed. read about it in another review and decided to buy it along with the wd 1Tb caviar blue to replace a hard drive that was starting to fail. anyway this thing is great. nicely built, solid, easy to use. placed the old drive in the slot the new drive in the other slot and entire transfer took less that 3 hours. great thing about this is that it is still usefull. I'm going to buy 2 additional drives and use this as an external drive.

                      I purchased this unit to save time and complications occurring with software solutions. It is simple push-in technology. 80G drive took very little time to copy the entire 65G contents to a new Caviar Blue 1TB drive. I did play with Partition Wizard after the new drive booted right up faster than I had expected. I experienced no problems with the transfer.

                      It is pretty basic and seems a little dinky at first sight. All plastic..and seemingly cheaply constructed. But it works fine! Good alternative to more expensive raids if you just have a few drives that you work with and want to simply "back up". I haven't used it many times, but so far, so good. I use it as a way to duplicate my drives that I use as media backup so that I have two versions. Its pretty fast and straightforward. I recommend you read the instructions twice... it always is a bit scary when you press the "Start" button.Make sure the drives in the correct bays.

                          I agree with previous reviewers, that it does have pretty basic switches etc. but it seems to perform as advertised. I use it to dupe Windows system HD's for back up. I have not yet found a surer, faster, cheaper way to clone a disk. It is now my primary system backup. It also has the secondary capability of providing you with a USB connection to use any SATA HD as a remote/portable HD.

                                This is the first time I have been able to make a real backup drive (bootable duplicate of my main drive). I tried software but it never worked. Easy to use creates a perfect copy so if my drive fails, I can put in the duplicate and be running in a few minutes. Same size drive (2T to 2T)is perfect copy. Smaller to larger drive (250gig to 1T) gives a 250 partition size on larger drive. I enlarged the partition with partition magic (now on sale) in a couple of minutes.

                                  It not only can provide peace of mind by providing an exact copy of your hard drive but can also be used as an external hard drive.
                                  I wish I had this a few year ago.

                                  Copy my new PC OEM HD for backup. Will also use as external dock and future backups.

                                  Copied everything OS through security program all settings intact. Did not have to do anything but boot as normal with the new copy HD in place. Took 2 1/2 hours to copy 500GB so get something to eat watch a movie or go for a walk outside. Easy to use.

                                  Says it won't give more GB of space than origanal HD. Tried 500 into a 640 and saw about 15GB more. Will try to partition before next try. Says it won't copy to smaller HD bummer for SSD converts haven't tried yet to make sure but I will try.

                                  Buttons are cheep but it still works and won't give more GB than origanal HD thus only 4stars.
