It lets you connect up to two HDDs or SSDs 2.5″ or 3.5″ and access them on your computer via USB 3.0. Furthermore, it allows the cloning of HDDs or SSDs directly, without aid of a computer.

Motivation and Choice

Recently one of my HDDs began to fail, fading and returning the system, causing crashes. It is a Seagate Barracuda 3TB, ST3000DM001 model. This is an especially problematic model. I had some of them at work and all pifaram. To replace it acquired a HDD Western Digital Blue 4TB WD40EZRZ, of which I will speak in the next article.

So, the acquisition of Wavlink USB 3.0 Dual Bay Docking Station para HDDs e SSDs de 2.5″ e 3.5″ It was given primarily to try to transfer the data to another one, either directly, ie putting the new HDD in PC and reading old from Docking Station.

The choice of Wavlink USB 3.0 Dual Bay Docking Station para HDDs e SSDs de 2.5″ e 3.5″ was because the brand Wavlink It is relatively known among Chinese. It is one of docking station top selling AliExpress. Also It has good ratings on Amazon.

Nevertheless, the product has not been damaged.

The box highlights some product features, how to be plug and play, support cloning with just one button, SSDs and compatibility with SATA HDDs I, II, e III, 2.5″ e 3.5″, and SuperSpeed ​​USB connectivity 3.0 SATA pairs, with support UASP protocol that provides up to speed 5 Gbps.

The power supply operates with input voltage 100V to 240V, in 50 Hz or 60 Hz, which ensures its functionality in any country in the world. You can choose from American plug, of the United Kingdom, or European. I chose the European who works in Brazilian outlets without adapter.

On the back of the Docking Station there is also a button on / off switch. The docks are protected by a retractable door has an opening for 2.5 drives connection″ of the skinny (to 9,5 mm), so that not between dusty when using one of these devices. Can you use the 2.5 drives″ thicker (12,5 mm or but), but in this case the lid moves a bit. Drives using 3.5″ the cover is fully open and it fills the entire space.

Tests

Unfortunately, HDD Western Digital Blue 4TB WD40EZRZ It was already deteriorated too much for it to be able to recover anything from it. The Docking Station the recognized, but it did not work cloning. connecting Docking Station no system, HDD was not recognized. Luckily I had backup almost everything.

Most were games, as Exodus and ScummVM collection (old DOS games), ISOs Sega Saturn Redump group, ISOsde PC Engine CD, Sega CD, of Playstation group and Trurip, etc. They are things that I can download again, but I would rather not do it because my low ratio on the PleasureDome.

I tested with HDDs and SSDs and he recognized all without major problems, leaving them available for use in Windows. I owe only an assessment of cloning feature, I just not using.
