    Hi there.

    We have several Retina MBPs in our video production company and we have a really bad track record with docks for our hdd on the retina, and we are tired of throwing away money on docks that doesn't work with the Retina.

    So far we have tried:

    - Sandberg USB3 single HDD dock (works but is falling apart because of the bad quality)
    - RaidSonic ICY BOX IB-120CL-U3 (does not work on Retina MPB)
    - Zalman ZM-MH200 U3 (does not work on Retina MPB)

    They all work on old USB2 macs, but they don't show up at all on the new retina (except for the Sandberg, but they are literally falling apart after 3 months - not worth it.)

    Do you know of any docks that works with the retina and has USB 3?

    Best regards,

    The seagate ones work for me and you can stick bare drives onto them.

    I have a very old Thermaltake USB 2.0 dock working flawlessly with my rMBP.
