In my quest to simplify my backup process, and looking for a good external dock, I stumbled upon this review of a dock:
»hitechlegion.com/reviews/storage ··· &start=4
Well, theoretically, USB 3 (5Gbps) is faster than eSata (3Gbps, since it's Sata rev 2). But I really thought in reality (and according to random comments I read) eSata is still faster as far as file transfer on drives are concerned.
The bench scores showed on that review clearly shows USB 3.0 (as it should?) is faster except when transferring a 5 GB file. But the difference is so minute.
Any personal experiences?
To be safe, I think I'll go with a dock with both USB3 and eSata. Any recommendations will be appreciated.
