This review is from: SanDisk Extreme Pro 32 GB Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) - 1 Card
Pros: Fast 95MBps SDHC card. For most SD card uses, this is totally overkill (recording H.264/AVCHD video for instance only requires around 3MBps), but when coupled with a UHS-I card reader (in my case, the Sonnet ExpressCard version, but USB3 works too), you get super fast offloads so you're not sitting around waiting for the footage to transfer to your computer.
Cons: NewEgg didn't accidentally send me the 64GB card for the same price.
Other Thoughts: If you use SD cards routinely and have the ability to get a UHS-I reader for a USB3 or faster connection, then you should be purchasing these cards for everything. The time saved in copying off footage is nice, whereas slower cards mean you're limited in how fast you can pull it off. Plus, if you ever decide to use something that requires a faster write speed (such as the Blackmagic Pocket Camera) then you're already covered.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The RocketStor has twin 6Gbps eSATA ports for the fastest connection to your internal SATA drives available. It even has the ability to RAID bare drives when connected to a card that supports doing so. I mostly use it to manually duplicate multiple drives for backup purposes, and it works perfectly for that.
Cons: USB3 connections would have been nice to give it a bit more versatility, but if that came at the expense of the 6Gbps eSATA connections, I wouldn't want to make that trade.
Other Thoughts: The other review must have some severe requirements when it comes to how these docks eject their drives. The ejection mechanism works fine for me, but no, it won't pop the drives up for you to catch in mid-air.READ FULL REVIEW
