This dock does not work for me on USB 3.1 Gen 2. Works fine Gen 1. Tried two differsnt system that both support Gen 2 USB. If I plug into this port the activity light constantly flashes but the drive is never recognized. Yes, I am using the supplied cable.

Better than buying external drives

I use this to off transfer my older work photos from the server for final storage. It's just what I needed and I no longer need have to keep buying external drives. Just makes sense to no be storing away everything else that makes the drive work. This way I'm just using old drives pop it in make sure it's formatted and fill it up and pack it away. Easy!

I bought one years ago and can't believe I am the first to review. It works flawlessly and I use it whenever I want to clone a drive. Can also boot from it if drive is converted (it seconds) with the free Haslo WinTo USB. Click Tools, and use first option to convert.

When using one of the drive slots, it's fine. When using two drives, the thing disconnects after a couple of minutes.

Asked by: joseph t.
HI Joseph, just saw this question . . . I own this and it doesn't have a fan. The drives can get a little warm, but I don't believe a fan is necessary, I've worked it pretty hard for the TV show raw footage.
