Pros: The 4-port RC-508 appears to have comparable throughput as the Rosewill RC-505 2-Port USB 3.0 adapters. I have several of the RC-505's and they have been solid for years.
Cons: I bought the RC-508 in November of 2015 to replace two RC505's to free up a PCI-e slot. It died as of tonight June, 2016, so I am not happy with this card compared to the RC-505. Will be contacting Rosewill Monday as this adapter is supposed to have a one year warranty.
Other Thoughts: Learned a lesson with this adapter. I had three 3tb drives connected to it and they all didn't show up when I booted up this evening. Tried reseating the card and reinstalling the driver but no banana for me. Reinstalled two RC-505s and all is well. Originally thought I might be putting too many eggs in one basket by plugging all my drives into one adapter, but didn't listen to little voice saying this might not be a good idea. Luckily, the adapter did nothing bad to the drives. Will not put more than two drives on an adapter going forward as these drives backup each other.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Team C145 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model TC145364GG01
Pros: Overall it works and has given me little problems though it did it did corrupt the files on it after extracting it from a blu-ray player once. Luckily, it reformatted OK and hasn't had any issues since. Also like the activity light built into the open/close mechanism button.
Cons: I have had this drive almost a year and find the USB connector protection mechanism very annoying. The internal catch feels like it barely catches so the connector can retract if the button is even slightly depressed, but that's not the main annoyance. The main source of frustration is, when extended, the connector is not exactly inline with the case but tilted down so you have to tilt the back of the drive down so that the connector is actually inline so that it will push into the connection otherwise you can connect the drive to the computer. This is very annoying and could have been designed better. Would not buy another one of these drives because of this.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works and is so much faster than spindle drive though haven't done any speed tests to quantify with exact numbers.
Have had one 120gb v300 go bad after a few months but Kingston quickly replaced with new drive. That's why I buy Kingston.
Cons: None.READ FULL REVIEW
