Fast but unmounts drives when computer is asleep 12/21/2013
Small, good form-factor
Unmounts during sleep
It just plugs in and works with my Macbook Pro (2012).
With 4T western digital drives, I was seeing about 140-150MB/s transfer rate which is pretty much the practical limit for those drives (I don't think USB3 can do much better anyway.) Same whether I plug directly into my Macbook pro or through the hub. So it definitely passes the speed test.
Unfortunately, when the computer sleeps, the disk drives get unmounted (which is not a problem I see if I plug them directly into the computer or use my USB2 hub). So when the machine wakes back up, I see the warnings that disks were removed improperly. I'm going to exchange it and hope that fixes the issue. I'll adjust my rating up or down depending on the outcome of that.
