I have a few 3.5" hard drives I use in a media player which has a "hot swap" function. Unfortunately, inserted hdd cannot be edited or files transferred when connected via usb to my computer, which meant I had to open my computer and connect my drives in order to transfer files. I spotted the icy box dock and thought "this is what I need". I simply eject my hdd from media player and insert into my docking station. It accommodates 2 drives (mine are 8TB but maybe larger drives could be used) and connects via usb. Transfer speeds are very fast and connecting to computer takes seconds, (as does disconnecting). I haven't used the cloning function, but this performs the tasks I wanted it for flawlessly.
The only slight niggle is the supplied usb 3.0 cable is too short but longer cables are cheap so it's no big deal
