  • Must have for reading old HDD

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Good price point for this dock.
    Plug and play (on Linux). Hdd can easily fit.
    Support both SATA and IDE. (I bought this for the old IDE HDDs as there's no PC around to read them anymore. Now I have couple hundreds more GB to stash my ever increasing data...

    Cons:

    Power cord provided is not suitable for UK type socket. Need a socket converter.
    Packaging and shipment is a bit lack. The box is damaged when it's delivered. Fortunately the unit itself still work.

    OtherThoughts:

    There seems to be an issue with having multiple HDDs or cards in the dock.
    - When SATA HDD and IDE HDD are put it, only one of the drive can be mounted.
    - It could be power requirement, or could be the Ubuntu system I'm using No further investigation as I don't usually need them together.

    Bottomline:

    It works as intended.
