    Xcellon HDD-1312 reviews

    HDD-1312 USB 3.1 Gen 2 Hard Drive Dock is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT I just got this in and it is a big upgrade from my older USB 2.O dock. I also really like that it has a spring loaded flap to keep it covered. Compared to my existing dock, this one is less than half the size, much Faster speeds and a nice sturdy aluminum/metal housing. It works great. I like how it has its own power cord and comes with both types of USB C cords. Its always annoying when you get something and then still have to get other accessories to make it work. I saw the other reviewer say something about the power button being in the back. I would prefer that too but all of my devices including G - Drives, Studio monitors, Mac etc have the power button in the rear. That can be a pain but I believe that is just a design standard for most electronics.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from No faster than USB 3 I tried using this on both a ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2nd Gen and a desktop based on a Asus Prime Z370-A motherboard, both of these computers fully support USB 3.1 Gen 2 and yet the transfer speed on both computers was no faster the plain USB 3 speeds. Another issue, at least for me, was the design of the dock itself. The dock has a LED activity/power light viewable from the front and an on/off switch located on the back, all of the other external HD docks I have used have both the LED indicator light and the power switch on the front of the unit. Having the switch and the indicator light on different sides of the unit made it harder for me to use the unit, when I could view the indicator light it was difficult to reach the power switch and when I could easily push the power switch it was difficult to view the indicator light. Lastly, the unit does not have a mechanical button to help eject the HD from the unit, not the end of the world, but something I expected on a unit of this price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Back it up! Media storage has always been the Bain of content creators existence.  You can only have so many external hard drives floating around your desk.  A few years ago my mentor put me on to an idea that has changed my entire work flow.  Using internal hard drives (which are cheap compared to self contained externals) and a hard drive dock to archive your media.  Slap a terabyte internal into the dock, put all of the footage you wish to archive on it and store the internal (in a static proof case). Since the hard drive isn’t constantly spinning, you don’t have to worry about it wearing out.  It’s like creating an offsite library of your old content.   This long winded story is just to set up my review of the new HDD-1312 hard drive dock.  I got my hands on it a few weeks a back and it has increased my archiving workflow 10 times over.  Going from my old unit which was a USB 2.0, to this USB 3.1 has been a game changer.  I really saw the significant increase in read and write speeds.  It’s super quick. The build quality is nice, a solid hard plastic that doesn’t feel flimsy at all.  It’s got a relatively small form factor which doesn’t take up much space on my desk at all. Even though I really love this thing, I do have a few small issues, which aren’t deal breakers, but would make the product 5 stars instead of 4.  I do not like the fact that there is no eject button. Once the drive stops spinning you have to manually pull it out. It would be nice to push a button and have the drive release and pop out.  Another issue is the activity light built into the unit is a bit small and placed on top of the unit.  I would have preferred it be bigger and placed on the front where I could glance at it easily, and not have to stand and hover over it. All in all I love this little guy, it does what it’s made to do, very, very well.  If you are serious about backing up and archiving your data, this is an essential for your work flow.  It will save you time and money in the long run.
