cloning linux hard drive

Have read several pronouncements that almost any external hard drive will work with linux, but that not the same as the software that is needed to clone a hard drive for replacement
The Apricorn “EZ Upgrade Universal Hard Drive Upgrade Kit” looks efficient and is reasonably priced, but it specifically states that its software is tailored for windows & mac.
Has anyone actually USED this item to clone a linux hard drive??? If not, what (precisely – brand & model number) has someone been able to use successfully for this function?
Am sure many others have faced this problem, so there must be some confirmable answer out there somewhere.

Why use this? You can just as well clone a drive with ‘dd’ or ‘dd_rescue’ (latter I recommend)

leads me to say: it is not “tailored for windows & mac” but rather it
includes both windows and mac software (which you can run in windows
or mac, but NOT in Linux) to clone your present drive…

as said (by microchip) you can do the same with the Linux software he
names (without using their window/mac software) with any standard usb
enclosure and drive…
