    Drive Dock Thunderbolt 2/USB 3.0 Dual Drive Bay Solution is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 27.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Keeps ejecting drives This docking bay kept ejecting both of my HGST 4TB drives while I was working on the files, and also when on standby. It does not eject them properly either. I am afraid losing my work if this keeps happening. I also wish the power cord was just a bit longer. There is an outlet right underneath my computer which sits on my desk, and the power cord barely reaches. I am returning it and ordering another one. Hopefully this was just a defective drive, and the next one works well.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poorly Engineered I like OWC products, but this one leaves a lot to be desired. The on/off buttons for the individual drives are flimsy, require holding down to power on/off, and wobble in their own seats so that it is possible for the edge of the button to become wedged beneath the faceplate. Furthermore, and more critically, the Thunderbolt outlets do not firms seat the wires, so that if the wires are jostled or touched, the connection is interrupted. This is a nuisance for chained monitors, but a critical problem for writing data connections. Unfortunately, it's the only Thunderbolt dock on the market right now--so I will switch to a USB 3. The transfer speed will not suffer, I just won't be able to daisy-chain through it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect Thunderbolt dock... The only negative to this dock is the lack of a eject button to gently lift a drive out of the bay. Not a deal breaker though. For the price of this dock you would think they would have included that. Oh and speaking of the price I guess that is another negative but it's the only bay I found that has TWO Thunderbolt ports! The other one out there only has one and that is a deal breaker for me since I use a monitor as my last item in the chain. On the Plus side it has a few. For one it looks oh so SWEET! Metal housing is a nice touch but of course you paid for it. Two drive bays with on/off buttons for each. It also has a built in power converter to eliminate the ugly power brick on the cord. Hot swappable of course just be careful yanking the drives out of the bay. If you want 2 drive bays and 2 Thunderbolt connections then this is it. Buy it and you will be happy......I didn't say your wallet though.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from This thing sucks I've used the Highpoint version for years without a problem, being able to hot-swap disks as needed. This dock causes the the disks to disconnect seemingly at random (without properly unmounting it). When hot-swapping, the fresh drive either doesn't mount at all, or it causes the first drive to disconnect. (The instruction manual specifically says this shouldn't happen when using Thunderbolt). It's also total hit-or-miss as to whether the drives will actually mount or not, even when waiting the proper 7-8 seconds before inserting the new drive. Save yourself a headache. Go with the cheaper, simpler Highpoint version!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from High Quality but Not Perfect Bought three of these for work. Occasionally they won't turn on so you have to unplug it or switch a port, wait 30 seconds, it will then turn on. Also the drives seem to run VERY hot. When you pull one out you can barely hold the thing with your bare hand. This is across all of them. Ive had a half dozen brands and these are the hottest by far. Not sure if they're spinning fast or sending more energy to them or what but it's something. Otherwise have had decent luck with them so far after about 4 weeks.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just started using, but working well so far Easy enough to set up and use. And the price was certainly reasonable compared to other options out there. I purchased the bay to continue using some drives I used to run in my older MacPro. I was able to pull them from the MacPro drive bays and drop them into this bay. I did wind up placing a folded up business card next to the drive in one of the drive slots to eliminate a buzzing (vibration) noise. Other than that, when the drive isn't being accessed, it runs nice and quiet. Looking forward to getting a lot of use from this bay.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two docks in one! After years of having two separate docks that also worked off of Firewire 400 and daisy chained through an external hard drive I broke down and purchased this dual drive. So far I've only used it a few times but working well and using Chronosync with it has been terrific. It operates on thunderbolt so very quick. Takes up less real estate on my desk too. It was a little pricey but glad I made this purchase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid product, would buy again I'm giving this 4 stars because the lights and power buttons are a bit confusing, it's not always clean when a drive is powered on. Using with Thunderbolt and it's very fast. I think it's a BIT expensive but at this point it seems all Thunderbolt equipment is overpriced. It's a solid unit and I would buy it again.
