Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Connection

Connection:
"I used it with both USB3 FW800 connections - same failures occurred."
_
"I am now on my 3rd unit and it has the same problem as the last 2, the esata connection drops during file transfer."
_
"For me, I use the USB connection, but you can use Firewire (800 400) as well."
_
"My old Mac Pro had no other connections compatible with the new one and a conversion of the Thunderbolt to firewire connection had an estimated time of 14 hours!"
_
"A thunder bolt connection would be nice (if the price stays the same)."
_
"Theoretically, I should be able to connect the Voyager to my computer via firewire-800 and then connect another firewire-800 device to the Voyager via its second 1394b port."
_
"With the option of being able to read either 2.5 or 3.5 drives and connections for Firewire 800 400 and USB 3, I know I won't run into an issue where I can't connect something."

Dock

Dock:
"I have to agree with many others that this dock seems destined to fail before it's time."
_
"We've purchased 4 of these docks and I've had one fail within the last few days."
_
"The big weakness of this dock is the power button."
_
"It fails with Thunderbolt docks consistently while cheap USB Drive Docks easily deliver 128M per sec."
_
"I always thought it may have been a problem with my CalDigit USB 3.0 PCIe card, but after switching to a cheap $25 USB 3.0 dock that has worked flawlessly, I now know it was the crappy NewerTech dock all along."
_
"The NEWER TECH NWTFWU3ES2HDK VOYAGER Q FIREWIRE 800 400 USB3 ESATA DRIVE DOCK is a good device to leverage your existing hard drives provided they are e-SATA compatible."
_
"I eventually bought a much cheaper Pluggable USB 3 HD Lay Flat Docking station that seems to work well for me and is just as fast, even though it doesn't have the e-Sata and FW connections."
_
"It fails with Thunderbolt docks consistently while cheap USB Drive Docks easily deliver 128M per sec."
_
"I read all the bad reviews, but had good experiences with my two earlier NewerTech HD docks I bought in the past and took a chance."
_
"So I plugged in a cheap $15 USB3 dock which worked perfectly."
