OWC Thunderbolt 2 Dock owner report on USB3 drives (benchmarks/boot tests)
Updated the page on Questions about booting USB 3.0 drives connected to Thunderbolt docks with an OWC Thunderbolt2 dock report from an iMac 21.5" Late 2011 user. (Updated to include later Quickbench 4.0 benchmarks with his 2 USB3.0 WD portable (2.5in/5400rpm) drives.)

(Also updated my low-cost NewerTech eSATA3 card review to note it's listed as Bootable w/OS X 10.6.8 & later. At that time I tested w/10.5.x & noted not bootable. Also warranty now 3 years.)
