Just wondering if any Premeire editors use external hard drive docking stations and if so, which do you use and how would you rate their performance? I assume these can only be used in editing if they are connected with an eSATA cable but are there any other specs that should be looked for? Do these docking stations perform just as good as installing the drive in the case? I saw one of these at Best Buy but wanted to check with others first to see if they're worth it.
Sata and E-Sata have the same performance. When you say Docking station, do you mean external e-sata drive kit? Link the item you are asking about please.
I have not used one of those before but it should be fine. It's basically the same as the standard trayless E-Sata kits without the encasement.
