Sharkoon SATA QuickPort Duo

Crucial Ballistix Tracer DDR3

Introduction

While storage space has stayed well ahead of software in terms of increasing capacities, because of duplicated and backed up data, most people now have a plethora of different storage solutions to hold their ever important information. There’s pen drives, optical media, portable hard drives and more. However, the cheapest option of them all tends to be a run of the mill hard drive, with a docking point of some sort. This can also be a great way to utilise an older, smaller drive that you no longer have use for. With that in mind, lets commence today’s review of the Sharkoon SATA QuickPort Duo.

    I have this dock. The Sata controller onboard is 1.5 Gbps. Real world max throughput is thus about 130MB/s.

    Why does nobody test these things with SSDs and on internal 6.0 Gbps ports?
