RocketStor 5422: USB 3.0 UAS Enabled

The RocketStor 5422 can deliver unprecedented levels of storage performance when paired with UAS capable USB 3.0 controllers and HBA's, such as the RocketU 1144C. UAS enables USB 3.0 devices to store and process multiple commands in parallel; significantly reducing wait time and streamlining data transfers. The speed and efficiency advantages provided by UAS technology are ideal for multi-tasking and performance-hungry applications.

UAS (USB Attached SCSI) is a computer protocol that is used to transfer data to and from USB storage devices such as hard drives, solid state drives (SSDs) and thumb/flash drives. UAS is dependent on the USB protocol, and utilizes the standard SCSI command set. UAS offers maximized bandwidth utilization, and can handle multiple data transfer requests simultaneously, unlike the slower queue system of BOT (Bulk Only Transport), which only provides single-task commands – each task must complete before the next begins. As a result, USB 3.0 connections working in UASP mode result in higher transfer speeds and lower CPU utilization. UAS clears data queues faster, which results in smoother-operating PC's.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: None

Cons: DOA. Never detects any drive. Just places 2 blank drives in my computer and when you plug in a drive makes disk management unavailable because it keeps trying to detect the drive. Test with a known good drive.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Device

Pros: I use this hard drive docking station with WD 4TB Red hard drives for the backup media for Backup Exec. I haven't had any problems with it. It appears to be only 10% slower that SATA connected hard drive, when doing 1.2TB backups.

Cons: It doesn't have an Off/On power switch.
