Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: StarTech SuperSpeed USB 3.0 eSATA Hard Drive Docking Station with Cooling Fan (Accessory)
I was looking for eSATA and USB 3.0 combination for my multimedia player iconBIT XDS73D. First I bought Orico quite similar production, but it stoped working during first week and damaged the new 2tb HDD (thanks god warranty upplyed). This item works as described with the Seagate baracuda 2tb HDD. Tryed eSATA as well as USB 3.0 connection - seems everything ok, although I didn't pay attention to real copy speed, but it's much better USB 2.0. eSATA and USB 3.0 cables (not the shortest) included. The win7 32bit as well recognizes the device through eSATA as well as through USB. The fan is advantage, especialy with the posibility to switch off at all. The max speed of fan is quite loud, but you can reduce the rotation speed.
Things to improve: The ON/HDD LED flashing is to bright, but this is not the problem for sticking tape to cover. The power cable could be a little longer, couse it puts some staging restrictions for me due to it's shortness.
In averall I am very happy with it, if it pass the 2 years warranty period :)
