Very nice docking station. There are things to keep in mind when purchasing this kind of item. Three problems you want to focus on: 1- make sure you have a USB 3.0 pci expression card in your desktop/laptop or a motherboard with USB 3.0! Not expensive. If NOT, it's the same as using a USB 2.0 (good thing is that it will still work but you need to change the cable to reg USB). You won't be able to take advantange of the speed. I tried to install it on one of my computers pci slot and it did not fit! Luckly, I had another computer which did have a specific slot that it fit in. This is important because I can see people buying the PCI expression card with this docking station and finding that it doesn't even fit in their computer slots. 2- If you have the older hard drives (PATA 133 HHD)this will not work with it! I was disappointed to find that out but now I'm looking for an adapter the would convert the older hard drive to a SATA connection and that will fit in the slot. I was able to copy files from one laptop harddrive to another. IT is very light and you don't need a cd driver installed to recognize the device on your computer. When you hit the power botton on top, a light comes on red and when it reads the drive the light turns multi-colors (looks nice). You can use this as an external storage device by use a laptop hard drive or a desktop SATA harddrive. I used it on Vista 64bit & XP. Definately nice! It did the job for me!!
