    I got this and it works well, but I would buy elsewhere. If you do receive the product, it will be well into next year.. If you have problems, you'll be on your own.

    Seems like a good buy for a dual dock.

    A little Amazon searching led me to see lots of people complaining that this can't clone a drive to an identical drive. According to the manual, the target drive must be LARGER capacity. Drives with equal capacity will not work.

    ^ Reviewers mention it can't do it in standalone mode but it can with the software, connected to a computer. Doesn't seem like all that much of a limitation to me because most people would have a computer that they'd connect at the very least to confirm the clone operation worked.

    IOW, it's about all you could expect for $60 and under.

    QUESTION? Instead of buying this can I simply use the extra sata ports on my motherboard and some sort of free partitioning software such as GParted or EaseUS and clone onto a new hard drive or SSD?

    ^ Sure, it's just a lot more of a hassle to do it that way than plopping a couple drives in an open external station like this. I don't have this model but do have a few open externals and find them really handy for rotating offline storage backups to HDDs.

    Using extra SATA means a dongle extension or cables hanging out somewhere, extending the PSU leads, pulling out and opening and closing the system case, getting out a flashlight and maybe pliers to get the plug on, and propping up or mounting the HDD... just way too much hassle in this day and age unless you only get a new HDD once in a blue moon.

    With this, just slide the drive in and turn it on. Takes about 8 seconds. You could buy additional hardware to make the process described above easier, but then it's at least a one-time internal install for that and it still doesn't get any easier than just sliding a drive in and pressing a button.

    Thanks for the reply Dave. lol at your description of the song and dance connecting drives to the motherboard, I do it often. I bought several high capacity sata drives from a friend for practically nothing that I use for all of my backups and system images via sata cable. Never much minded the process but if I did it often I'd see the appeal of having one of these, especially a USB 3.0 I asked the question because I'm running out of space on my HDD and need to plan to transfer to a larger capacity drive some time in the near future. Yes my data is already stored on a second drive.
