Pros: Big difference compared to USB 2.0 speeds. USB 3.0 speeds are fast enough to keep me happy. Nice looks and feel.
Cons: Sharp corners can scratch furniture or other equipment. The item's finish can scratch easily too. I put a couple of rubber bands around it to protect furniture or other equipment and to to give it traction to keep it from slipping on smooth surfaces. The supplied USB 3.0 cable is approximately 2 feet long, a 3 foot cable would serve better.
Other Thoughts: Others have complained about the latching mechanism. Not a problem for me. To open just depress the button and hold it in the down position and push the door to the side and let go. To close just depress the button and hold it down and push the door into the closed position and let go. Too easy!
I have owned 2 of these for approximately 8 months with no problems. I bought the first one on sale, received it in 2 days and it performed so well that I bought a second one while it was still on sale. They were $23.99 on sale when I bought them which seemed a little high priced still but they've performed well so I'm satisified.
