I have plenty of external hard drives and no place to put it. I don’t really favour NAS systems as I still need the flexibility in multiple hard and speed of transferring files constantly. Also plain hard drive are just getting cheaper everyday. The external wired cable linkage from ide,sata to usb is just to slow which i am been using for some time. This is where the Hard drive dock system comes in handy. Just imagine the old days when we had 8 track cassete tape, that how the hard drive will look when we plug it in.
Anyway the beauty of this dock is that it has the power of e-sata. Supposedly able to reach blinding speed of 3/gb per second. Let me tell you using the old method of using the usb to sata linkage and transferring 1tb of data to another 1tb is painfully slow, alamost half a day gone. With e-sata you can kiss all those time waiting to almost half.
