Pros: The Offline Clone function worked perfectly. I recently purchased this Wavlink Docking Station to see if I could recover my data from a 1TB Seagate Barracuda HDD that would not boot. The drive was becoming erratic and suddenly would not boot into Windows 10. The HDD was partitioned into C: Windows, D: Programs, E: Cab Files and F: Data. I first reinstalled Windows and got halfway through re-installing all my applications when the Seagate drive failed again and would not boot. I decided to order the Wavlink to see if it would clone the whole system onto a new HDD using the Offline Clone function. The Wavlink arrived quickly in perfect condition. I put the failed drive into the Source slot and the failed drive into the Target and lauched the Offline Clone function. The manual instructions weren't the best I've seen, but I was able to figure it out without too much effort. The failed Windows partition and all the others were copied perfectly onto the new target HDD. I reinstalled Windows on the new drive and reinstalled my programs. Having the data and cab files on the new drive made the reinstall much easier.

Cons: The manual could be improved.

Overall Review: Based on my first experience I would definitely recommend the Wavlink for both emergencies and as a backup drive.
