Hassle free docking station – USB 3.0 HDD Docking Station for All 2.5"/3.5" SATA HDD (Super-Speed 5Gbps) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Plug and Play, hassle free. Convenient Price
Cons:
None
Other:
I received it in about two weeks since I ordered it. I intended to use it to try to recover my 1TB hard disk that had just failed. I hooked it up to an Ubuntu system and it was recognised immediately. Still the disk appeared to have some bad sectors according to Disk Utility in Ubuntu and would fail the extended SMART test. So I hooked it to a laptop running XP and where I had HDD Regenerator. This tool found and repaired 8 bad sectors. I formatted and partitioned again the HD. It looks like it is OK now, the extended SMART test finalized successfully.
Bottomline:
Cheap and convenient docking station. Recommended.
