The UNIDUPDOCK Universal SATA/IDE Dual Hard Drive Duplicator functions as both a convenient solid state (SSD) or hard drive (HDD) copying/imaging solution or an external SATA/IDE SSD or HDD docking station for 2.5in or 3.5in drives (SATA, SATA II, SATA III).
Providing quick, yet complete hard drive cloning functionality, this universal dock can operate as a standalone HDD duplicator with no connection to a host computer, delivering an exact 1 to 1 clone of the target hard drive including partition and boot sector information, the Host Protected Area (HPA) as well as user data at a copy rate of 72 MB/sec. A built in LCD screen then allows for tracking the duplication progress, as well as reporting errors on the drives.
Supporting both IDE and SATA, this universal duplicator dock enables duplication from SATA to SATA, IDE to SATA or SATA to IDE, and IDE to IDE, as long as the source drive does not exceed the size of the destination drive. Or the docking station can even be used to quickly erase hard drives, for reuse in the future.
Functioning as a universal IDE and SATA HDD docking station, the hard drive duplicator can be connected to a computer through USB with support for simple plug-and-play installation, allowing users to access hard drive contents without having to mount in an external drive enclosure or open the computer case for conventional drive installation. Large capacity drives (tested with up to 4TB 3.5" and 1TB 2.5" drives per bay) can be used to greatly enhance your computer's storage/backup capabilities.
Contained in a small form factor design that makes it a suitable addition to desktop and laptop operating environments, this hard drive duplicator/external HDD docking station is a versatile storage and hard drive cloning utility that also features a host of other built in utilities that are accessible via a built in menu system.

Product Reviews
StarTech.com USB to IDE SATA Standalone Hard Drive Duplicator Dock HDD is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lacks ability to generate a checksum. Lacks ability to create a .dd or any other image file. Maxes out at ata/66. Raid ability is interesting but I have not had a need to investigate, I am unsure if it is limited to two drives or four on raid mode but even if it can do four the need for IDE-SATA adapters would be likely.I find this device unsuitable for most digital forensics applications due to the lack of checksums and image files. You could use it as a USB adapter but there exist less costly devices with integrated wright blockers so even for this use its not well suited. Using it as a drive duplicator in the IT field could be problematic as it will duplicate slack space and deleted files, not all IT professionals may be aware of the intrinsic risks involved in doing so. It is also much slower than would a file system aware drive copier. On the plus side it will duplicate any drive regardless of file system (or lack there of).As far as quality of the design goes, the power plug is not very standard, would have been nice if it used a 12v only and had an integrated dc/dc buck converter built in allowing a regular barrel connector for power. Do not loose the power supply its a real pain to replace it. The power plug is somewhat prone to fall out so be mindful of that especially when copying a large drive, make sure there is no tension on the cord at all, get a freaking extension cord if you need to. The SATA connector forces you to place the drive circuit board down and have the drives plugged directly into the device so you have to be quite mindful of the surface you have everything on and nothing can shift while using SATA drives, the IDE uses cables which I find preferable. I would have preferred the device used SATA cables and an IDE-SATA power adapter instead of the awkward SATA docks that dangle off the sides.Most of my contemplates could probably be fixed with a firmware update but I doubt that will happen, My firmware seems to be from 2009 and I cant find any updates at all. I would really recommend most people pass over this device, the only real exception is if you think you want the raid features, again I did not test that and cant vouch for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The device works great The device did everything I needed it to and the customer was happy when I was able to save the PLC drives before they died of old age. Excellent product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Utile et fiable (useful and reliable) French : Je suis développeur et pour effectuer mes sauvegardes, j'ai recours à cet appareil. Pour augmenter également les performances d'un système, je transfère les données vers un disque plus rapide.Je l'utilise aussi lorsqu'un disque dur d'un portable commence à être défaillant. Pour l'achat d'un disque dur et le temps de la copie, on retrouve pratiquement les performances initiales de l'ordinateur.English : I am a software developper and for backups I use this device. I also use it to improve performances by moving all data from a hard disk to a faster hard disk.I also use it for laptops when the hard disk is "tired". Thus, we recover initial performances.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent poduct with "Outstanding" support. I had an issues with the unit I had been using for about 2 years. I went online and opened a chat session with tech support. I received Outstanding support and was able to resolve the problem with a technician in about 10 minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real workhorse I have duplicated hundreds of disks and duplicated EIDE to SATA to SSD and used it as a dock to my PC.
