Be Very, Very Wary,
This review is from: S35DC eSATA & USB2.0 Docking Station 3.5" & 2.5" SATA Hard Drive
The product sounds perfect for anyone who needs to hook up eSATA and SATA drives externally. I've had the misfortune of trying two of them and cannot recommend them for multiple reasons.
The first one arrived with none of the software and when I connected it all up, the power transformer grew dangerously hot and within seconds fizzed and smoked to death in a most alarming manner. This should have put me off, but swallowing my terror, I agreed to a replacement. Sadly, the second one arrived with no instructions and a faulty rocker switch so it was impossible to actually turn the thing on.
Having been thwarted twice, I can only extend the gravest misgivings to anyone contemplating this item. Avoid if you value your safety!
Update: Sept 2011 - the item currently being listed here is completely different from the model previously listed.
