Ok, but that didn't really tells us anything we didn't already know.

I'm looking forward to pricing making DIY 3000--3500MBp/s doable, for me.

As in 'Get this drive and that enclosure and you'll get 3000-3500MBp/s R/W'.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

facepalm.

"Thunderbolt/USB 4 ports offer up to 40Gb/s (about a Blu-ray of data per second of bandwidth)"

No.

A Blu-Ray is 25-50 GB. TB3 tops out at 40Gb.

That article seemed lame.

For $79 (for just the enclosure) you can get OWC Envoy Express ( [eshop.macsales.com] ) from the site's sponsor and up to 1553MB/s - twice as fast as his recommendation.

For more speed - up to 2800MB/s - you can get OWC Envoy Pro EX - [eshop.macsales.com] . This is actually faster than the internal in his tests, so it would be interesting to see a benchmark with an M1 Macbook Air.

Seems to me, MRF should write its own version of this article!
