Slow read/write rates, consistently poor
December 6, 2019
I recently began using this dock to transfer large backups onto bare drives (spinning HDD) for offsite storage. I immediately noticed the transfers were taking far too long with the WEme, longer than when I used other docks in the past. Therefore, I started running benchmarks against this WEme. I used a 5400rpm spinning 2.5" HDD for all of these tests. The WEme was only getting transfer rates averaging 35MB/second. I then tested against other docks (Sabrent, WiebeTech) and was getting averages around 86MB/second (almost 2.5x faster, consistently). This was across MANY tests, using the same HDD across the same USB 3.0 port each time.
I have only owned/testing one of these WEme docks, so maybe this unit is poor quality somehow. Buyer beware.
