Customer Review

on August 1, 2011
I'm really pleased with this bit of kit. It's the cheapest disk interface I've found with USB, FW400, FW800 (two ports) and eSATA, and is ideal for checking what's on the bare drives that one accumulates. It can also be put in a FW800 chain, as it has two FW800 ports on the back.

I recently used mine when copying a nearly full 1TB hard disk to a new 2TB hard disk. Because of the extremely large number* of very small files, the copy took seven days to complete. The drive in the dock was being read and written to nearly constantly over that time, and did not overheat. The way the disk is held upright with no enclosure around it allows the heat to dissipate by simple convection quite effectively.

Testing the speed of the dock, I got sequential read speed of 56-126MB/s under FW800 and 102-177MB/s under eSATA, and sequential write speeds of 90MB/s under FW800 and 150MB/s under eSATA.

Highly recommended as an addition to anyone's kit list.
