Picked this thing up during Black Friday sales. Honestly I am very excited about it. Easy plug in of all size sata 1/2/3 drives. Connectivity through USB 3.0. Standalone exact 1:1 cloning. And it's pretty well priced even when not on sale.

Cloning is a long process. About 4 hours for a 1tb drive. So it's take a half a day to clone a 3tb drive. But being able to just plug in, press clone, and do whatever else you want on your own PC is really amazing.

Not a bad find Hyper. Let us know how it goes. At 40 bucks it certainly seems like a very reasonable deal

Hard drives got super expensive for a while due to Asian floods a couple years back. They've gone down a fair bit though. I bought a couple 3tb drives, internal and external, for $90 on sale. 2tb for $70. And 1tb for $50. Those are decent prices. Just gotta buy on sales.
