I looked at the dock mainly gained in order to back up the data of my old hard drives can. Once I have a 2.5 "hard disk in which the USB connector is defective and a 3.5" disk that comes from my old computer and dust for several years in the closet. For me, the interesting, the two different sized plates both fit into the docking station. This model Inateck always holds one of the two sizes. There is a small opening for the 2.5 "drives. For the large 3.5" hard drives, a panel on the device is available that easily folds inward. Who has permanently a little used, protects the panel the interior of dust and dirt.
The docking station is well made, looks modern and is thanks to anti-slip knobs on smooth surfaces safely. A blue LED control layer sits on top of the Dockingstaion. On the back there is an on / off switch.
I use the dock with Vista. The device is backward compatible with USB 2.0 / 1.1. So far, no problems there. Have a hard drive for a period in and attack often to data. With the speed I am very satisfied, it is just as fast as a normal USB drive connected 3.0. I have not measured it according to the manufacturer, the device supports transfer rates up to 5Gbps.
So: For me, the main thing to be able to access my data again. The acquisition of Inateck dock was truly worth it. She is working properly, the access is fast and the part can also be permanently available on the desk, because it is hardly noticeable and does not wobble. Would I buy it again.
