Uncompromised, Dual Dedicated 5Gb/s Performance
RocketStor 5422A storage docks employ HighPoint's innovative dual-dedicated 5Gb/s bay architecture with UASP support, to deliver the fastest performance possible over a USB connection.

UASP Performance Boost: The RocketStor 5422A is fully UASP compliant and is designed to maximize the performance capability of USB 3.0 devices. UASP (USB Attached SCSI) is a computer protocol that is used to transfer data to and from USB storage devices and can handle multiple data transfer requests simultaneously, unlike the slower queue system of BOT (Bulk Only Transport), which only provides single-task commands - each task must complete before the next begins. USB 3.0 connections working in UASP mode result in higher transfer speeds and lower CPU utilization.

SMART Green Energy Ready: Automatically Spins down the drive when there is no I/O activity or the System enters Sleep Mode
The RocketStor 5422A supports common Power Management features provided by Windows and OS X operating systems, such as Sleep Mode and Hibernation. The RocketStor 5422A and hosted hard drives will enter a low-power state when the operating system enters standby or sleep modes, in order to conserve energy and maintain optimal efficiency.

Availability and Pricing
The RocketStor 5422A is available immediately from HighPoint's North American Distribution and Retail channels. MSRP: USD $59.99.
