Can anyone recommend a good
docking station for transferring data from / to internal hard drives, when they are outside the confines of a computer casing please?
Have just been sweating over a dual SATA/IDE Winstar C2 which when I examined it had been put together so that the IDE socket misses the IDE plug pins by a row, so it will feel as if it has plugged in ok then nothing happens. It's going back to the shop. Read a review about a different station which 'fell to bits' when a hard drive was inserted into it.
These stations are a great idea but many of them seem to be appallingly manufactured. Mine cannot have been quality tested (despite some sort of quality test mark on it) because it simply cannot and will not work - although it probably works with SATA drives. It also worked with a usb key so I know I had the thing set up and connected to Windows 7 okay [long sigh]
