Packaging for both these products is similar. For the dock, we have a bit of marketing surrounding a rather illuminated blue box that carries an image of the dock on the front.
The back has a features list just below we find the specifications.
The scope of delivery includes a manual, power adapter, and USB 3.0 cable.
A quick look at the dock shows us it's not much different from similar solutions. Each slot has its own LED for activity to the left.
The backside houses a rather simple I/O with just power input and USB 3.0 connectivity.
I tested the dock as I do any external solution that requires I supply the drive. We simply slap in a freshly erased SSD into the system, in the case of these two solutions from Vantec, a Seagate Nytro Client LM140 512GB. In our first run through, the dock was more than capable and reached 415 MB/s read and 410 MB/s write in Flash Bench.
Moving over to CrystalDiskMark, we topped out at 396 MB/s read and 388 MB/s write at QD32.
