Sorry but I'm not voting either way. This is just a generic thing from China, under various brands all over the internet.
I bought one of these when it dropped to this price a few days ago - seemed to work well enough so I bought two more. One has since gone back as it wouldn't recognise any drives over 2TB - drives that worked fine internally or in enclosures left over from drive shucking would appear as uninitialized disks with no partition info, and no attempt to correct it by recreating the partitions worked. The other two are now connected to a Raspberry Pi, where they seem to be working just fine - I previously had one connected to my Windows 'server', but it would only reliably recognise a single drive.

In summary, this may or may not read your drives - if it doesn't, the problem is with the dock, NOT the drive.
Voted hot, Great Kit. been bit cheaper few months ago but worth the price. Sabrent is a good brand to have.
It's basically more or less the same as this one from 7dayshop that costs £17.99 delivered.

I bought one a year or so back, it's the only thing that seems to just work, no hassle. It has even saved a few drives I thought weren't saveable.... I dunno why Windows is so crap for managing drives, but this works at least. It even cloned an old work drive that wouldn't clone to anything saying something wasn't compatible with newer drives.

Apparently only works up to 5 terabytes. USB3 or not nothing beats inserting the disk(s) into spare sata connection(s) on a pc, you will probably have at least two spare connectors on the motherboard.

Where did you read that sorry? I'll be honest I don't trust much information about these devices, seems a lot of conflicting information. I mean it says there's no limit in the description which is clearly bull.
dont suppose this as a hdd clone option?
I've ordered one of these earlier in the week and just waiting for delivery now. I thought Sabrent were becoming a reliable brand what with their NVME SSD drives. From reviews on Amazon (and also in this thread) seems their QC is still hit and miss.

I'd be wary about buying little known brand ssds.

Indeed I wouldn't buy an unknown brand considering more familiar brands have come down so much in price. Sabrent seems to be making a name for themselves though. There are plenty of reviews of their SSDs on YT and from trusted reviewers like this one:
