Sabrent DS-SKRT-D16TB Thunderbolt 3 Dual NVMe SSD docking station- 8TB & 16TB capacity

Sabrent has a new DS-SKRT-D16TB Thunderbolt 3 that has up to 16TB of NVMe SSD inside a Docking Station. I like the idea of adding storage on a docking station. For mobile filmmakers and photographers, this looks like a great option to include both in one box.

The dock is fully compatible with Windows and Mac computers.

When plugged into a computer it will show two physical drives not one 16TB since there are two slots in the dock. The drives can also be RAIDed together with software-based RAID solutions. The dock is Thunderbolt 3 and requires a power brick to supply power.

Inside, there’s a Sabrent 16TB SSD that pushes out up to 1.5GB/sec (1500MB/sec) with extensive connectivity. You get two Thunderbolt 3 ports with up to 40Gbps of bandwidth, two USB 3.2 Type-A ports, and one USB 3.2 Type-C port, which are capable of up to 10Gbps.

There’s also a USB 3.0 Type-with up to 5Gbps, and a BC12 [email protected] charger for your smartphone, tablet, and other devices.
