Electronista evaluates how quick a drive dock can get
Modern drive docks are awfully convenient. Without taking the time or expense to case a hard drive, contents are readily accessible to the user -- and with the advent of eSATA drives docks, most are hot swappable (assuming the OS allows it). Storage solution provider HighPoint has an excellent paired solution for PCIe equipped machines -- the HighPoint RocketStor dual-channel 5322 SATA drive dock, and the newly-released RocketRaid 642L PCI-E x4 expansion card. Electronista was recently given the chance to give the pair a spin. See what we thought about this speedy drive dock.
