Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unit works right from the box. I had a problem reading files from an NTFS hard drive that had come from my old laptop but this was due to the file permissions and nothing to do with the docking station. If you have the same issue then access the Microsoft Knowledge Base and look for article 308421 "How to take ownership of a file or folder in Windows XP"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful and easy to use. Saved my bacon and my Data when my machine was hit by Malware that blocked my Windows boot. Removed drive and mounted it via this device on a legacy machine, rescued my partner's book and enabled me to clean and reformat the drive. Had our desktop machine back up and running in a couple of hours. Now I use it to back up and have a duplicate hard drive ready on the shelf just in case it happens again. Solid, simple to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made and very easy to set up and use. Ideal if you have a few old spare drives hanging about which you want to access or use for storage without the hassle of installing them inside your computer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous piece of kit My desktop computer died, and the new motherboard turned out to be faulty. I couldn't wait any longer to access my old emails, so bought one of these. Plugged it into a low-powered Win 7 Starter netbook with an Atom processor, it loaded the drivers and up popped the drive with all my files! Copying them across was reasonably quick too, about 1Gb in less than a minute. Very happy, fantastic value too. The only thing I would have liked was a HDD activity indicator.
