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

Design

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.

https://youtu.be/wmzMi1HLtNk
https://youtu.be/28iTi4JlXcY

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

1、WL-WN570HN2(AERAIL HS2)

2、WL-WN570HA1(AERAIL HD2)

3、WL-WN572 HG3 (AERIAL HD4)

— 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.

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.

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.

Wavlink Halo Base 分布式路由器

网络对于现代人来说,就像一日三餐一样成为了生活的必需,同时,越来越多的人搬进新家的同时,会苦恼家中的无线网络该如何布置。甚至对于很多大户型、复式和别墅家庭来说,Wi-Fi信号覆盖还是个大问题,需要专业人士参与布网才能够基本保证Wi-Fi信号覆盖无死角,但是,信号质量又不能保证。办法总比困难多!除了找专业人士帮忙,现在也可以通过使用MESH路由器,组建分布式Wi-Fi网络来解决大空间和复杂空间的信号覆盖和质量问题。真是科技改变生活!

2019年春节刚过,云测速技术团队拜访了专业路由器生产商,总部位于深圳的睿因科技,了解到最新推出的“睿因(Wavlink)A22/A23 Halo base系列分布式路由器”的详细信息,并带回来一套样品进行测评。接下来我们一起来看一下这款路由器的具体表现。

一、外观设计

一套好的装备,怎么少得了超级创意的外观设计呢?

相比于一成不变的传统路由器的毫无生气,Halo base系列路由的出现,给沉闷的路由器添加了许多生机和活力,三个简单时尚的立方体融入了现代感。蓝白配色,迷你小巧,富有内涵,放在家里任何一个地方都没有违和感,甚至增色不少,甚至可以说它是一个充满科技感的时尚摆件了,如果能加一些艺术元素,就真的成了艺术品。

这是一套由3个主机组成了套装

所有的配件

客厅的主路由

Halo base系列路由器面板顶部有Touchlink感应区,轻轻一点就能发射免密Wi-Fi信号,蓝灯闪烁120秒内无需输入密码,即可快速连接。亲朋好友到家里来玩,再也不用问Wi-Fi密码了。 在机身侧下方和底部均分布有密集的散热孔,确保路由器拥有良好的散热效果。

此外,在Halo base系列路由的侧后部,有两个千兆网口,一个百兆网口,以及复位/配对键、电源接口。其中,两个千兆网口的速度比标准网口的速度快10倍,充分满足高速光纤网络需求,打游戏、看视频非常流畅、无卡顿。

底部散热孔以及防滑脚垫,让稍微有点沉手的机器不至于很轻易的掉落到地下

主机背面有三个千兆网络接口,其中标有internel接口的就是以往我们见过的WAN口,这个还是稍微有点不好理解呀,对于从业多年的老技术员来说。

二、两点配置

首先,Halo base系列路由器内置4根高增益全向天线,搭配波束成形技术,能够自动找到终端设备在网络中的位置,再将Wi-Fi能量集中到终端所在方位,增强信号,让Wi-Fi连接更加高效和稳定。

其次,将2.4G和5G信号合并为一个统一的Wi-Fi名称,在家边走边玩,使用手机、iPad等智能设备在分布式中继器间自动无缝切换连接。就算家里来朋友了,也不需要告诉他不同路由器的密码,只用连接一次,然后网络会自动分配各个楼层和房间的网络信号并进行连接,特别方便。而且,每个设备都采用802.11ac Wi-Fi标准与MIMO技术,提供1200Mbps无线传输速度,也就是说,在家同时播放视频、游戏和上网也不会出现缓冲或延迟情况。

再次,联发科双芯片加瑞昱单芯片的设计方案(三芯片设计),使得性能更卓越,同时搭配大容量内存,支持更多设备使用,同时保障设备正常运行。

最后,分布式Wi-Fi设备彼此协同作用,保障家庭信号覆盖最优,最大可同时支持10个中继设备同时使用。

三、连接简单

我们在设置时最大的感受就是简单且迅速,这样可能少了动手的快乐和成就感,但是快节奏的生活就是要追求速度和效率;而且科技的发展如果能够普及大众,让大多数人掌握并接受,不就是要越来越简单化吗!尤其是对于小白用户群体,越简单越好。

直接接通电源、插入网线,就可开始正常上网。这个时候Wi-Fi是没有密码的,可以按照用户手册中的说明,进行密码设置。从安装到设置密码,一共才用了10分钟,太简单了。

对于小白来说,这个设置向导可能稍微显的太简单,但是呢,官网提供了详细的设置教程,甚至可以拨打官方的400电话来获得帮助,这个国外的客户就可能需要通过邮件来获得帮助了。一般的稍微有点常识的用户都能顺利的完成设置

四、信号强度测试

示意图以及摆放

信号强度是建立在摆放的位置是否合理的基础上的,后面我们专门测试研究一下最合理的摆放位置,这里引用speedtest的原文。

衡量路由器的性能,信号强度是最直接的一个参数。我们根据不同的户型,分别测试了A22(两件套)和A23(三件套)Halo base MESH路由器在各种户型环境下的信号强度。

首先,我们选择了三室的中等户型,测试A22的表现。根据用户实际使用场景,把A22分别放在了客厅和主卧两个位置。客厅放一个是因为有电视,而且是一家人的休闲娱乐的主要空间,有光纤和IPTV电视接入点;主卧阳台放一个就可以保障卧室的Wi-Fi信号覆盖。

三居室户型图

摆放在客厅的主路由,这里需要提醒的是,我的网线原来不在这个位置,所以很麻烦,鼓捣了好久才把主网线弄到这里来

主卧室的卫星路由器,除了主路由器需要连接网线以外,其他的两个卫星路由器不用网线链接,他们之间通过设备物理地址配对链接,官方出厂时会按照地址配对好,用户就不用操心了。

测试方法

按户型图中标注的位置,分别测试次卧(A)、卫生间(B)、厨房(C)的信号情况。(这里忽略了其它外界的因素的干扰,且不同的设备测试会可能会有不同的信号值出现)

测试分析

经过测试,三个地方的信号强度极强,并且上传下载的速度也没有变弱。在整个测试过程中,信号无死角和穿墙性的问题得到了解决,一般的120平方米左右的中平层户型,客厅一个主路由,卧室放置一个足够解决信号差,延迟卡顿等问题。

然后,我们选择了一栋二层别墅,测试A23的表现。根据用户实际使用场景,把A23分别放在了一楼客厅、二楼主卧、二楼书房三个位置。一楼客厅放一个是因为有电视和厨房,而且是一家人的休闲娱乐的主要空间,有光纤和IPTV电视接入点;二楼卧室再放一个可以保障两个卧室的Wi-Fi信号覆盖;书房里有笔记本电脑,放一个可以保证笔记本电脑的正常使用。

测速方法

按户型图中标注的位置,分别测试一楼厨房(A)、一楼卫生间(B)、二楼卫生间(C)的信号情况。(这里忽略了其它外界的因素的干扰,且不同的设备测试会可能会有不同的信号值出现)

测速分析

经过测试,三个地方的信号强度极强,并且上传下载的速度也没有变弱。在整个测试过程中,信号无死角和穿墙性的问题得到了解决,一般的185平方米以上的二层别墅,客厅一个主路由,卧室放置一个路由,书房放置一个路由足够解决信号差,延迟卡顿等问题。

五、总结

用户对于上网速度的要求与弊端逐渐明显的传统路由器之间的矛盾日益凸显,尤其是对于居住在空间大、房间多的大房型、复式房和别墅用户,以及部分对网速和稳定性要求极高的游戏和直播用户。Halo base MESH网络路由器可以说是现阶段最完美的解决方法了:精巧迷你的外观,不占用空间的同时还起到装点空间的作用;主副路由的随意组合;自动分配无线网络资源技术,以及可多人同步高速传输的 MU-MIMO 技术都赋予了它与众不同的气质和性能!超值产品,值得拥有!

WHEN NUC8I3BEH MEETS WAVLINK UTE01

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.
