I am quoting speeds shown by windows 7 as to how accurate these speeds are pass I do not know


The back up HDD is a 2.5 laptop drive

This would be about 60MB/sec if there was no overhead and 100% efficiency. So, if you expect USB 3 speeds in the 600MB/sec, then you will be terribly disappointed..
Advertised here is up to 10x faster and yes I would like to see speeds that are faster than 60MB/sec but like I said still an improvement over USB2

you are more than welcome to look at my specs. I don't have a spare ssd for the docking station yet but then as I explained it is for old drives I no longer use in my PC
