REVIEWS

  • Newstips Review: Cirago dual-drive USB3 dock

    We love USB3 for its bandwidth, which is faster than a magnetic hard disk can fill, so when we learned about the Cirago dual drive USB3 dock we asked to review it. When plugged into a USB3 port, the PC gets access to any docked drive that's as fast as an internal drive but there's also a happy surprise: you don't need a PC to get it to clone one drive to another. With no USB3 connection, push a button to clone the drive in the "A" dock onto the drive in the "B" dock, all handled automatically with a LED bar graph displaying its progress. Its power supply delivers 4A@12V so the drives won't starve. The drive ports are SATA II so they're compatible with SATA I to III; the drive's read/write speed is more likely to be a bottleneck than the dock. Bottom line: the Cirago dual drive USB3 dock is not only an excellent way to add another drive or two to what a PC can see, it's also a very handy standalone drive cloner.

"This set-it-and-forget-it docking station is ideal for system admins who regularly need to clone multiple hard drives," Lo said. "This compact device makes it fast and easy. Just drop in the drives, press the clone button and walk away. And, since it doesn't tie up your PC during cloning, you're free to work on other things while the drives synchronize."
