MacBook Pro eSATA Test Procedure

Last updated 2010-05-18 - Send Feedback

The DiskTester run-sequential command was used to test sustained transfer speed (using Mac OS X 10.6.3 running the 64-bit Snow Leopard Kernel for all tests ).

Testing sustained transfer speed with DiskTester

eSATA testing

For the “straight eSATA” tests, I used the FirmTek SeriTek 2EN2 dual-bay enclosure (highly recommended), which has two “straight through” eSATA ports for maximum performance .

By comparison, the Voyager Q Drive Dock and OWX QX2 and many other devices use a “quad interface” design, a nice plus for easy connectivity, but an approach which reduces the maximum speed due to use of an internal bridge board required to support those four interfaces.

Durable and fast, up to 1800MB/s
