                  I have been using my Xcellon dock for video editing. So far, so good. It boots up the hard drives very fast and works like a champ. I had two others from a competitor and they both stopped reading disks shortly after their warranty ran out. So, after some searching, I thought I'd give this one a shot.

                  Good Alternative to Voyager Quad

                      I read a lot of reviews of the Newer Technology Voyager Quad on the net and it sounded very unstable. There is not a lot of quad sata adapters out there. So I thought I'd try Xcellon's and so far I am quite happy with it. It is stylish and sleek. I think that if you take care of your equipment, it should't burn out like what I read about the Voyager on [@] etc. The Xcellon adapter comes with instructions and as long as you mount, power, connect things in order (and reverse) and also be gentle about not forcing the drives etc...I think everything should be fine. I'm very happy with this purchase...so far.
