Product Description

Fast data transfer just got a whole lot better thanks to the all-new Thermaltake BlacX Duet 5G Dual Hard Drive Docking Station. Continuing the award-winning concept of allowing user to conveniently hot-swap drives without the use of any tool, BlacX series of hard drive docking station re-defined the way users transfer large amount of data. BlacX Duet 5G utilizes the latest in USB 3.0 (SuperSpeed USB) interface that enables blazing fast data transfer with maximum throughput of 5.0 Gbps, 10 times the transfer speed found on previous USB 2.0 (480 Mbps) interface. To achieve the added transfer speed, BlacX Duet 5G fully utilizes the bi-directional data interface, for each receive and transmit signals, rather than the half-duplex arrangement found on USB 2.0. BlacX Duet 5G is also fully backward-compatible with USB 2.0 host devices providing future-proof upgrade capability to USB 3.0. Included are AC Adapter, premium shielded USB 3.0 cable, as well as 2.5-Inch and 3.5-Inch hard drive silicone protective sleeve.

I had similar problems as those who rated this item at 1 star, but I found a solution for my system and now it seems to work fine. I'm giving it 3 stars because it was really frustrating and required considerable online research and troubleshooting before I found my fix. The frustration is why it dropped 2 stars in my books. Otherwise it would be 5 stars.

First of all, I used it on a 15" Retina MacBook Pro (Late 2013) and it's presently connected to my 27" iMac (Late 2013, refurbished). Both run OSX Yosemite 10.10.3. I had the same problems with both systems where the drives would randomly drop with "Disk not ejected properly." I was using it to swap between four 3.5" HDDs: Two 1TB Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 SATA II (c.2010), and Two 200 GB Western Digital WD2000 SATA I legacy drives (c.2004). After some troubleshooting I updated the firmware on the dock, which can be found at: http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/products-model_support.aspx?id=C_00001756. This didn't entirely solve my problem, although drops did seem less frequent.

After reading some forums about other mult-bay devices (nothing specifically directed at this dock was particularly helpful) I came across the topic of HDD and SATA controller instability with some HDDs. I tested the Seagates and WDs separately, and then together (one Seagate and one WD in the drive at the same time) and the ejection issue only occurred when the WD was mounted. I'm not sure if the issue is with the WD brand drives as a whole, or just because the WD2000 drives I have are now over a decade old and based on SATA I (but still ticking and work fine in single drive USB 2.0 enclosures).

In summary, if there is an issue with drives randomly being unmounted on a Mac first try updating the drive dock firmware (link provided above). If that doesn't work, try using a different HDD or using two drives that are the same make, model and capacity.

I hope that helps anyone who is having issues.
