Vantec NexStar USB-3 dock performance

Recommended Posts

Along with my new desktop build equipment I bought a USB-3 HD dock to take advantage of the USB-3 port on the mobo. I just ran ATTO against the drive and I'm wondering what people think of the performance: good ? bad ? mediocre ?

That is a sweet looking dock! I will have to test my Kingwin esata to see how it compares.

Performance is very good for a single green drive. Your speed is limited by your drive not your docking station. Your docking station is pretty awesome and is doing what it is supposed to.

Not a huge fan the HDD toasters but that drive is definitely why the speeds aren't anything to write home about.

 

Tim turned me on to a toaster that fits into a 5.25" drive slot and has a standard SATA plug. Now that I think about I should test it and see if its SATA I or II.

That is cool. Please do tell what the model is.

Could this be useful for offsite storage? Backup and take the drive with me.

How'd you know? :) That's exactly what I use mine for, mostly, I also will use them to quickly move files from computer to computer. And, I use an eSATA dock to SpinRite drives.
