The Dock

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.

The Performance

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.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Tyler Bernath

Growing up in a small farm town, tech wasn't around, unless it was in a tractor. At an early age, Tyler's parents brought home their first PC. Tyler was hooked and learned what it meant to format a HDD, spending many nights reinstalling Windows 95. Tyler's love and enthusiast nature always kept his PC nearby. Eager to get deeper into tech, he started reviewing.
