Product Overview JBOD Docking Station with USB 3.0
A cabinet full with HDDs to work with is a good reason to use this double docking station. It is for 2.5" as well as for 3.5" SATA HDDs. The aluminium casing provides firm standing and good looking. The 2.5" HDDs might have a height of 9.5 or 12.5 mm, even 15 mm. Due to its power supply the dock also runs HDDs, which need 12 V. USB 3.0 accelerates the transfer of huge data, e. g. movies, enormously.

Reviews
2 Bay Icy Box IB-120StU3-Wh docking station for 2.5" & 3.5" SATA HDD with JBOD function, USB 3.0 Host is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Avoid if you can I bought this at the same time as the 1-bay Icy Box model (Manufacturer code: IB-111StU3-Wh). The 1-bay model works great. This 2-bay model does not. The problem is it appears to only enumerate disks when it is powered up, and not when you attempt to hot-swap them. If you power it up with only one disk installed, only that 1 bay works. If you power it up with both bays occupied, when you try to hot-swap, then because it does not signal to your OS that a device has been removed, the OS gets confused that the disk has disappeared, and thinks it's not responding. Put a different disk back into the vacated slot, and you're asking for data corruption. This is perhaps a limitation of it's design, in that it appears as a single USB device to your OS, rather than as 2 logical USB devices with one device per disk, which it probably should be doing to allow the 2 bays to be operated independently. This is also probably why the previous reviewer found he had to power cycle this device to make it work and was having problems with using both slots - it sounds like he was docking a disk after powering this device up. Unless you are short on USB ports, or power sockets, or really trying to save every last penny, and you are willing or able to work around these issues, I would suggest getting multiple of the single-bay variety instead. Tested with Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and various Linux distros.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Only one slot works Its weird to use. Sometimes its detected as a malfunctioned device but turning it off and on will get windows to recognise it and only one sata slot works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product Makes it a breeze to clone disks at reasonable speed. This has proved handy for upgrading to larger SSDs, and then recycling older smaller ones to older machines as well as the odd disk copy as I've been migrating to a new fileserver. It looks lovely as I've made my desk , PC and speakers white, but as its only plastic and dust can get in the 2.5" slots which are uncovered I'm only giving it 4 out of 5 for quality.
