Thanks for the review - i was looking to buy one of these and import it from USA to OZ, but guess performance wise it ain't that great. I ended up with a Manhattan Dual 2.5" drive L-Type mobile hot swap rack instead

Did you test this on USB only or SATA? I might have missed that detail in the article, but I didn't see it.

That explains why the throughput was so low. Thanks!
