Wavlink’s drive docking stations make cloning and drive backup way too easy

The landscape of computer storage devices changes dramatically year after year. Whether a new line of PCIe 4.0 M.2 solid state drives hits the shelves to coincide with a new motherboard chipset, or it’s something as simple as a new high RPM becoming the norm for platter-based hard drives, it’s a technological field that continues to evolve. And just like data storage solutions themselves are evolving, so too are the accessories and peripheral technology that comes with them. That’s where external drive docking stations from Wavlink come in.

Wavlink is just one of many manufacturers that are trying to help consumers keep up with changing storage tech, and we took two of the company’s drive docking stations, the ST334U Dual Bay Docking Station and the X-MAN Communicator D3 Docking Station, for a spin to see how they stack up. Both docking stations are solid, reliable pieces of peripheral hardware, and their additional features are really what make them stand out in the market.

X-MAN Communicator D3 Docking Station and ST334U Dual Bay Docking Station overview

Both of these docking stations are equipped with dual drive bays, despite only one being named a Dual Bay Docking Station. They both also do a lot of the same things, like provide an option for offline drive cloning as well as a speedy USB 3.0 solution for external storage hookups. As you’ll notice on Newegg, however, the X-MAN runs pricier at $129.99, while the Dual Bay sits at $96.99 (those are the MSRP numbers – click the links to head over to the product pages for current information). This difference in price is largely due to the difference in extra features. Both are designed for the same primary goal, sure, but the X-MAN has roughly $30 worth of extra goodies. Both are very powerful devices, though, and depending on your needs, it’s easy to find a good use for both.

We’ll start with the X-MAN, as it’s the more expensive of the two and boasts more features. Unlike most docking stations or other external hookups for HDDs and SSDs, the X-MAN Communicator D3 also includes hookups for a variety of other storage hardware. There’s an SD card slot, a Micro SD slot, two USB 3.0 slots, and even two USB charging slots. Basically, this isn’t just a drive dock, it’s an everything-involving-external-storage dock. The X-MAN’s capacity is impressive, too, supporting up to 10 TB of data at once. We’ll get into specific use cases later, but this dock doesn’t require any drivers, so you can plug it in and start using it immediately.

The lower priced dock, the ST334U Dual Bay Docking Station, supports slightly less at 8 TB, and it doesn’t have any of the additional slots or connection options—it’s just the two docking bays. This one was made for one main purpose, though, and it does the job very well: cloning. Its unique start button and LED interface make the process streamlined and easy. For any hardware professionals out there, you’ll know as well as we do that drive cloning wasn’t always such a simple thing. With this product from Wavlink you just plug in the drives (one into Source and one into Target), and hit the big red button. The cloning begins, without the need for any software, and the LED status indicator lets you know how the process is going. The X-MAN is just as easy to use, but again, it’s more expensive, and offers some additional features.

Feature breakdown

Here’s a quick rundown of the features in each of these two docks.

Wavlink X-MAN Communicator D3

  • Compatible with 2.5″ and 3.5″ SATA I/II/III hard drives and solid state drives
  • Plug and play without drivers
  • Supports easy offline cloning without the need for a host computer
  • One-button backup/one-button clone
  • USB 3.0 connectivity enables data transfers up to 5 Gbps
  • Up to 10 TB storage capacity
  • Supports UASP
  • SD and Micro SD card readers
  • 2 USB 3.0 ports
  • 2 USB charging ports

Wavlink ST334U Dual Bay Docking Station

  • Compatible with 2.5″ and 3.5″ SATA I/II/III hard drives and solid state drives
  • Plug and play without drivers
  • Supports easy offline cloning without the need for a host computer
  • One-button backup/one-button clone
  • USB 3.0 connectivity enables data transfers up to 5 Gbps
  • Up to 8 TB storage capacity
  • Supports UASP


The design of both docking stations is impressive. They’re both pretty sleek, and they don’t take up a lot of space. The more expensive X-MAN Communicator is coated in a matte silver accent to help the black parts stand out, which really helps the various ports on the front of the device pop and be more noticeable. The drive bays, though, are the best part. There is one grated bay guard for each of the two drive bays, which is very unusual for a docking station like this one. It gives the whole product this very 90s-cassette player vibe that feels and looks really cool, and it would be a great addition to a workstation desk just by its looks alone.

The other docking station, the ST334U, is no slouch either. While it’s designed like most docking stations on the market, there are two things that really make it pop. First, the paint job. There are a couple of different color combinations to choose from—we had the red one in-house for our photos. It’s matte-black all around the outside, and the top (where the drive bays are) is a shiny painted red. It’s simple, clean, and it stands out. The second highlight is its drive cloning progress wheel on the front, which lights up with a bright LED to show you the progress of the cloning process. This is perhaps the best part of the docking station, as you just plug in two drives, hit the button, and watch the pretty ring fill up. It’s a bit mesmerizing.

Use cases

The performance of these devices is top-notch. Accessing data in the drives is speedy (with data transfers up to 5 Gbps in both docks), cloning goes quickly and without a hitch, and the X-MAN’s additional storage ports work just as well. With solid performance like this, it’s easy to think of a few use cases where devices like this would come in handy.

The X-MAN’s additional ports make finding use cases for it simple. With the USB 3.0 ports, as well as the SD and Micro SD ports, you can plug any manner of external storage devices in to access. Cameras, external drives, thumb drives, anything. You don’t need to think very hard to figure out why that’s useful. If you’re a content creator, for instance, such as a photographer or videographer, this would find a good home on your desk. The most useful feature of each device, however, is their ability to clone drives with great ease.

Have a failing drive? Plug it in with your new drive and hit the button. Want to migrate a PC to another PC? Same thing. Want to quickly back up all of your saved content, perhaps some of your life’s work? Plug the drives in and hit the button. What if you want to upgrade from a hard drive to a new solid state? Again, it’s just that easy.

Taking it for a spin

When we opened these docking stations up in the Newegg Studio, we naturally wanted to take one for a test run. We tested both, but I’ll be highlighting the process with the X-MAN here.

Right out the box, setup seemed easy enough. Plug in the power cable, the device cable, the drive I wanted to clone, and the brand-new solid state drive I’d be moving the contents of the first drive over to. There’s room for improvement when it comes to the setup process, as both the USB device cable and the power cable are on the shorter side. In order to plug the device into a power strip immediately below my desk the cable felt stretched, and I had to put the docking station a little awkwardly on the back of my work desk for the duration of the test. There isn’t much of a cure for the USB cable, but we at least recommend a power extension cable if you plan on hooking this up. Or at least some sort of power outlet on top of your desk.

The job was a simple one. All we wanted to do was clone the contents of a 1Tb platter drive to a 512 GB SSD. There wasn’t anything substantial on the HDD, just some Studio photos and raw video footage totaling out to roughly 50 GB worth of data. I didn’t use the extra device slots, like the USB 3.0 ports or either of the SD card ports, and instead opted to just attempt the key feature of the device—cloning. After plugging the HDD into the “Source” bay and the SSD into the “Target” bay, it was time to let it rip. I hit the big clone button on the front and waited for it to finish.

Over the next few moments, the progress bar on the front lit up from 25 percent all the way to 100 percent, and it was finished. I opened the drive’s contents on my computer, while leaving them plugged into the dock, and sure enough, the same folder full of studio videos and photos was there. All in all it was an easy process, and other than the cord length issue, it’s everything I can imagine wanting in a drive docking and cloning station.

Check out the X-MAN and the ST334U docks on Newegg for more information and current pricing and availability.

WAVLINK Outdoor Router

For outdoor routers, weather-proof is a must for product quality. We Wavlink have been working on the crafts of withstanding fierce wind and rain outdoors for a long time and gained rich experience of that. Briefly, manufacturing materials is the key point.

Outdoor routers have wide applications and get very popular in the areas, such as villas, small farms, wooden buildings, highway service areas, etc. Besides, the test videos of our outdoor router (WL-WN570HA1) have over 60,000 views on YouTube, which is convincing enough for its popularity.


The outdoor routers we have here are as following, they have their own application environment.




— WN570HN2 (AERAIL HS2) N300 Outdoor Wireless AP/Router/Range Extender, which is suitable for the relatively small coverage outdoors with no 5G terminal equipment. Generally it’s available for most of cell phones and laptops.

–WN570HA1 (AERAIL HD2) AC600 Dual-band Outdoor Wireless AP/Router/Range Extender operates on both 2.4GHhz and 5GHz up to 600Mbps. It’s the ideal choice for the less complex environment, like small farms and simple cement buildings.

–WN572 HG3 (AERIAL HD4) AC1200 Dual-band Outdoor Wireless AP/Router/Range Extender is more powerful with the 4 high-gain antennas, which extensively strengthens Wi-Fi signal and expands wider coverage in the open air, ensuring a more efficiency wireless network.

All these outdoor routers support multiple modes such as Route mode, AP mode, Repeater mode, but it should be noted that they cannot extend the network from Mesh satellite(s) currently, (only works for the primary Mesh). And we are working on this now to better these outdoor routers.

UTD01 performs well under NUC8 windows 10

When we tested UTE01 last week, I thought about writing this article, because it is perfect to do this test under a small environment like NUC. Of course, UTD01’s application scenarios are not limited to this and more needs a careful exploration .

Based on Thunderbolt 3 technology, UTD01 is a powerful docking station with dispalylink chip and 3.5mm Audio and Mic. Jack. It supports Dual 4K display output and delivers a smooth high definition image without any lag under windows10 and Mac OS.

Figure 1 UTD01

The NUC8 we mentioned last week turned out to be installed on the back of the monitor as well. So I tried that way with the included accessories like a holder and some screws. Unfortunately, I found out my monitor did not support 4k after some toss …

Figure 2 NUC8 was attached to the back of monitor

Connect the thunderbolt port on UTD01 to NUC. Then power the docking station and make sure it works under the safe voltage(DC 20V).

Figure 3

When UTD01 is connected, the thunderbolt icon will appear on the bottom right corner of the screen and the system will automatically recognize it, identifying all available functions, such as 4K display, USB ports, SD card slot, etc. Here I have connected a DELL 4K display, and my display is placed vertically.

Figure 4

Why? Because it’s so convenient for programmers to work in this vertical way, specific performance, they can uninterruptedly read or write a piece of logic code on one screen without page turning.

Figure 5

The USB3.0 interfaces on this docking station can be backward compatible with some universal devices, such as U-disk of USB3.0, USB3.0 Wi-Fi Adapter, printer, etc.

Figure 6

Multiple ports on UTD01 can meet all your needs with ease and bring users the enjoyment of fastness, steadiness and effectiveness.

NOTE: The demo code, as a demonstration, is a new web background being written to verify the stability of UTD01.

It’s been a while since I carefully tested a 3C product. As a 3C enthusiast, that sounds unbelievable. So today I borrowed an exciting new stuff- NUC8I3BEH from my friend, which is a palm-sized computer. It can be hung on the back of the monitor, making your desktop organized (well… my desktop is a little messy here -_-).

Figure 1  NUC
Figure 2   Connect NUC to our test subject- UTE01

Since our team has been busy building the basic framework of the website instead of paying more attention on its content construction, we will take this opportunity seriously to test our company’s two products – UTE01 and UTD01. Out of the hobby of technology, we’re going to complete the test by using Intel NUC8IEBEH as a platform so that we can find out the real problem.

First of all, let me briefly introduce UTE01. It is the fastest mobile storage device I’ve ever seen. Supported by Intel Thunderbolt 3 Technology and equipped with a built-in NVME SSD (The capacity varies by models), UTE01 has a theoretical two-way transmission speed of 40G/s. In 2018, I copied big files with UTE01 via a MAC notebook when I was with my marketing colleagues in a professional studio. It takes only 3 minutes to copy a 100G image data group (Figure 3). This amazing speed is exactly what are the photographers looking for.

Figure 3

Therefore, motivated by a desire to find the truth, we are going to do the test to see how the real data of this product is.

Since NUC is a popular product, I will drop the introduction part and get the test started now.

Firstly, let’s test it with the speed measurement software (Figure 4)

Figure 4 Software Speed Test (read speed: 2.69GB/s, write speed: 2.48GB/s.)

Wow! That’s amazing! So what will happen in the real use situation? Let’s find out.

Note: When I tested here, the system was installed on a SATA III SSD hard drive, and there was a significant difference between the write speed and the write speed.

Let’s take a look at the copy speed (16G file)

Figure 5 Copy speed is 1.35GB/s with the computer that has the nvme SSD.
Figure 6 Copy speed is 187MB/s. (And sorry about picture quality)
Figure 7 Copy speed of small file is 252MB/s.

Limited by the read speed of the SATA hard disk, the write speed of UTE01 (512GB) cannot reach up to the theoretical speed as expected, its average copying speed is about 217MB/s according to the test we did.

The actual data we tested is not perfect, but the speed is already amazing, and the efficiency is increased by 100% compared with USB3.0.

The UTD01 test report will come soon…

*The above data is for reference only, and the result varies with different computers and systems.
