Decent saving on this Sabrent USB 3.0 to SATA I/II/III Dual Bay External Hard Drive Docking Station for 2.5 or 3.5in HDD, SSD with Hard Drive Duplicator/Cloner Function [10TB Support] - phew quite a mouthful

Normally £36.99 - but they currently have a promo running - "Save £16.00 when you purchase 1 or more Sabrent Dual Hard Drive Docking Station/Cloner offered by SLJ Trading" which drops the price to £20.99 with Free Delivery in your basket - see below

I'm first to admit, I'm not that techy, but husband is, he was quite excited about the price ( and he's not easily excited these days, especially now I resemble Brer Rabbit with mange more than Jessica Rabbit ) - I like it, I think it looks like a small robot dog with blue eyes ( bet you do too now I've mentioned it )

1.0 out of 5 starsUpdated: GPT Partitions getting destroyed and not USB 3.1 Gen2 (10Gb) compatible (?)
October 15, 2018Verified Purchase
I like Sabrent products and initially found this product to work very well. I didn't use the disk cloning option, but found read/write speeds to be excellent (180MB+), including between 2 HDs in the same docking station. However, I initially gave the unit a poor review and returned it because it was trashing/destroying GPT partitions on my 4TB drives. I latter updated the review to correct my statement stating that the problem was system related (and raised the review to 4 stars). I'm now updating the review again, and downgrading the unit back to 1 star, as it really was the unit's problem. After returning this Sabrent device I bought an Inateck dual docking station (FBA_FD2002) and that unit also corrupted GPT partitions. After reverting back to an older USB 3.0 dual docking station and additionally connecting drives via eSATA I had no problems. So, I suspect the ASMedia ASM1156 chip in common with both units is the culprit when used with Windows 10. Also, neither unit with the ASM1156 part works when connected to a USB 3.1 Gen2 (10Gb) port on my MSI system with a AMI UEFI BIOS. Bottom line, I'd strongly advise against buying any docking device that has this chip, including the Inateck FD2005-BK-US docking station that is a clone of this Sabrent unit [it would seem OEMed from the same manufacturer, but sold for a $1 less (?)]. What a mess.
I've got 2 of these, and have had them for nearly 3 years. Although I have never used the "clone" function - I just use them as a means of adding external storage to a Mac Mini - I would certainly recommend them. And a great price!

Hot! Bought!!
Thanks ordered
Thanks for posting, needed a drive reader & hopefully in the future I will upgrade the SSD in my laptop so the clone feature should make the job easier.
Heat from me
Ordered, thanks
Can you access both drives at same time or is double slot just for cloning
I've got somethink like this which is supposed to clone drives. It doesn't work with drives that are over 2 Terabytes. Not surprising really as these use the GPT partitioning table Although this is claimed to support up to 10 Terabytes. IF it recognises the drives through the USB port, then you should be able to copy the data through that but only at USB3 speeds
Bought. Well spotted, sir !
Bought! Thanks for this. Been meaning to upgrade my HDD to SSD so hopefully will be able to clone. If not, useful for recovering stuff off dead laptops my relatives all bring me!
discount applied automatically when you get to Amazon Pay page.
Strangely the checkout breakdown for me included a 1.99 delivery cost, but as the discount [automatically] applied was for 17.99 I didn't worry about it. I chose click-and-collect but according to Amazon 'If your order qualifies for FREE Delivery, it will also qualify for FREE Standard Pickup (delivery to a Pickup Location)' so go figure...
I thought this was a toaster for a second.
Out of interest what's the correct process to get stuff off the old drive using a sata usb cable as when you plug it in you get told you can't view it because of security or something

Cheers op. Heat

Always wanted one of these devices.

Here is a link to the manual if anyone wants a gander before it arrives

Assuming the controller chip-set is any good then the HDD should become the bottleneck, that said I had 4 Bay USB3 caddy that was terrible if you tried to access more than 1 drive at a time so it's possible if they've underspecced the controller it won't perform very well.


With SSD's you might hit and interface bottleneck but it's still going to be plenty fast enough for external storage (Again assuming the controller they've used is up to it)

Both at the same time. You’ll see two external hard drives in your pc or mac.

Heads-up appreciated.
Just confirmed the Inateck I have is the fd2002c with a 4TB GPT single-partitioned drive.
Apart from the initial copying (not cloning) from an old HDD in the other slot I've been using it exclusively as USB-storage with my Windows 10 laptop for months.
No issues though hmmm.... yet .

I had bought samsung ssd cloning software was provided by them
Got one of these. Had issue with USB cable - unreliable connection to computer. Always ensure connection is a good one.
Cloning is a bit slow and works provided both drives have ZERO errors on them. Destination drive must be the same size or bigger than source drive (obvious really). If you're wishing to replace your old C: drive with an SSD then the size rule applies. BUT you can clone with software to a smaller drive (subject to the TOTAL DATA SIZE being less than the SSD size). Minitool Partition Wizard (free) is good for this.

Do Samsung sell cloning software?.

And if so, is it generic to any HDD/SSD out there?, or is it specifically for Samsung HDD/SSD Drive's only?.

Thanx.

Sorry, not sure if its generic, but i was able to clone my existing harddrive (other company) to samsung ssd.
I think all vendor give the cloning software for their respective ssds.
I had to connect samsung ssd with a less then 3 quid usb casing bought from ebay or some Chinese website.

I read that Review and was going to post it here and ask...what does it mean in non-tech?
Not the same Inatek as the above post but....does look a bit...familiar

From what i gathered (and hope) that the issue that the reviewer talked about was with the cloning side of things.

For what i intend to use it for (the ability to see the contents on old 2.5" & 3.5" drives lying around), then there will be no corrupting of partitions
