I'm upgrading my SSD from an Intel SATA II 320 120GB - which has worked very well for me - to a Samsung SATA III 840 EVO 250GB. My computer doesn't have any native SATA III hookups, but I do have several PCIe 2.0 slots that are open and ready to be used.
I'm confused here. They use the Sonnet Tempo PCIe->SATA adapter inside of a Thunderbolt -> PCIe chassis. But, the Sonnet adapter is SATA anyway... wouldn't it be the same as just using a SATA to Thunderbolt adapter? Why the crazy setup? Is there some speed advantage?
