Not exactly the item I was looking for.

by David X. on 2/4/2010

part #SC-SA0D12-S1 was the item that I saw on SIIG's website, and on buy.com this item was listed. But it is not the USB 3.0 hard drive DOCK. Buy.com send me a external enclosure. Which works out just fine. Because its by far the best enclosure I have gotten. But still would've like to receive the hdd dock. Pair this with a SIIG USB 3.0 PCI-E card. Getting an average of 70MB/s transfer rate about 11 minutes copying 50GB of files. That about 2 to 3 x faster compare to USB 2.0. Using a slow 5900RPM Seagate LP 1.5TB Drive. Read More

Superspeed Self-Destruct

by Neil on 12/16/2010

Self destructed in no time at all. Burned itself out within the first 15-20 minutes of being plugged in. At first it was set, it was recognized by Windows 7(64), and all was well. Then, while I was doing some other things, I heard the signal of a USB device disconnect, and saw the lights were flashing rather than continuous. There was a horrid smell of burning electronics, and the dock was history (brief history anyway). At least it doesn't appear to have fried the drive that was docked. Other comments: unlike other docks I own, this one doesn't have an eject, and says you need to power down before plugging and unplugging drives. I guess next time I'll stick with Thermaltake or Startech; I have both and they've worked fine for several years. Read More
