Im planning on using my new macbook pro (whenever the refresh/redesign with IB comes out) and about 4x 256gb SSD in tow
anyone know of cheap but reliable docking/transferring stations?

SSDs are approaching $1 for the premium ones and on slickdeals some are even under 1/$1 especially with intels 330 ones

I posted a response in another thread, but if you are want a fast docking station for your SSD to the Seagate isn't a perfect option, but it works for SSDs. Its made for the Seagate GoFlex drives.
turns any GoFlex® portable drive into a blazing-fast Thunderbolt™ device for your computer http://media.seagate.com/files/2012/01/goflex_2.5_thunderbolt_adapter_datasheet_en_us.pdf

There is also a WD version which has a few other features and may be worth considering. http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105-57404283-1/wd-my-book-thunderbolt-duo-review-good-but-not-really-a-page-turner/ The 2 2TB or 3TB drives are replaceable but WD is saying "Important: Only use WD Caviar® Green™ hard drive assemblies to replace the drives in your My Book Thunderbolt Duo device enclosure. Using any other hard drive assembly voids the warranty for your My Book Thunderbolt Duo. http://www.wdc.com/wdproducts/library/UM/ENG/4779-705071.pdf Also, they are 3.5" drives and not the normal 2.5" of the SSDs.
