REVIEW: FirmTek SeriTek/2ME4-E 4 Port eSATA for Mac Pro
As you can see from the graphs, we attained 502MB/s with the four 2TB Hitachi drives we used for testing. Firmtek tested with four Samsung F3s and attained 570MB/s. We're looking forward to testing four of the new 6Gb/s Seagate Barracuda to see if they can each 700MB/s in a RAID 0 set. (Four SSDs could easily reach 700MB/s.) I mention those scenarios because the built-in SATA controller inside the Mac Pro maxed out at 615MB/s with four OCZ Vertex SSDs in our testing even though they are capable of a collective 1000+MB/s.
