Thunderbolt or USB3 to eSATA?
Now I have moved into the current decade with a 2012 mini I'm wondering the best option for maximising the performance of my eSATA enable external drives.
I had planned on the LaCie Thunderbolt eSATA hub, but Newer Tech make a USB 3 to eSATA interface that's $25 compared to $200 for the Lacie.
I've read of some issues with the LaCie force ejecting drives when your mac goes to sleep and it's capped at 2 drives whereas I assume with USB 3 hubs I could keep adding drives with the Newer Tech adapter.
Anybody got experience of either?
EDIT - they are HDD based externals not SSD so benchmarked performance over eSATA per OWC website is ~250Mb/second.

Anybody know how they perform vs the Lacie hub?

This means ONE to ONE connection
I'm waiting for this:
Lots more flexible
