    a very affordable way to connect external hard drives to your computer. I've had mine connected to my imac for a about a month, and so far I've had no problems reading my 2 TB drives with it. The only difficulty I've had is that it's door slides sideways instead of folding down like some of its competitors (aluratek for ex), so you can't put a drive in one handed. All in all, an excellent value so far...

    I have lots countless hours trying to copy stuff to and from the HDD with a connection that was unstable. I realised that it was only happening while using USB3 ports. I settled on USB2 ports and copied files successfully. Few months later, the same connection problem occurs on any USB ports (USB2 and USB3)...rending the device useless. It is passed the 30days support policy from BH so I wrote to Sabrent
    I am waiting for their reply

    Comments about Sabrent USB 3.0 Docking Station for SATA 2.5" and 3.5" Hard Drives:

    For years, I considered buying a hot swap external drive bay but didn't know how useful it would be. The answer is very useful. I wish I had gotten one sooner.

    You have drives sitting around you wish you could access? Here's the solution. Got 3.5 and 2.5 drives? Here's the solution. Works like a charm. First time every time.

    Buy one. Don't wait like I did. Very inexpensiveand useful tool.

    First of all the salesman was fantastic - great product knowledge. He showed me the choice of products and this was the best - great bang for the $. It works perfectly and even has software that monitors my PC an backs it up. I have absolutely no complaints. In the past I have had units were the drive is completely sealed...and those failed.

                    I was supposed to use this product for back up of all my videos contracts. It's not easy to put the hard drive into the docking station, and then mine kept disconnecting for no reason. When it comes to back up, it's not a good idea to play it cheap and have your docking station destroys your hard drive. Pitch in a 10$ more and get a good one!

                          This is the first Sabrent docking station I've purchased, and I'm satisfied. It functions very well. Be careful to insert the SATA drive in proper orientation with the socket... you must hold the access door open with the other hand to do it. Also avoid placing fingers on the back of your SATA drive, or pressing on the delicate electronics.

                                  after crashed my win7 laptop twice in 15min, it did have copied out my files, though i probably will not trust it as an external hard disc drive

                                  The features for B&H's good price says it all. If you want sharp looking addition to your work station this is it (no sloppy, loose HD with a plug and cord only approach).
                                  I use it with a 750gb to back up my laptop and have it sitting nearby ready to go. The connection well has a spring loaded, sliding cover, which helps keep dirt out and stabilizes the drive.

                                  It's a really efficient way of transfering data to naked hard drives for backup or archive purposes. I use it to archive video footage. Fast transfer rates, but the Hard Drives are rarely quiet.

                                  Very inexpensive and worked as advertised to rescue data from the hard drive of my dead PC.
