Pros: works with linux
Cons: none so far
Other Thoughts: Got this to replace another 2.5" enclosure that I was having trouble using in an Ubuntu 14.04 install on a Gigabyte 78LMT-USB3 motherboard which has a Etron EJ168 USB 3.0 Host Controller. When plugged into a USB 3 port on the motherboard, the enclosure is recognized as "JMicron USA Technology Corp. JMS567 SATA 6Gb/s bridge" and the drive shows up in Disks. I get the same result when the enclosure is plugged into a pci-E card that has a Renesas uPD720201 USB 3.0 Host Controller.
At the time of this review, the kernel version is 3.13.0-91.138-generic
Pros: I have the Ravpower RP-PB07 which will not charge a recent phone that I purchased. The 2.4A iSmart output of RP-PB35 is able to charge the 3000mAh battery on the newer phone at least 3 times.
Cons: The power cuts out after a minute or so if I use it with a USB LED lamp. The older RP-PB07 does not have this issue. The built in LED flashlight is dim. Takes overnight to charge even with a 2.4A AC charger.
Other Thoughts: Plan on charging this battery pack well ahead of time before you put it to use. Might not charge other devices such as MP3 players.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Simple, easy to use
Cons: Mostly plastic construction
Other Thoughts: Got a 120Gb SSD that would not work with an older USB3 enclosure that I have. Tried this one and the SSD was recognized by a linux computer. Stress tested the drive and the enclosure with 4 runs of bonnie++. No dropped connection or other issues so far.
I also tried this with an old disk drive that would not spin up (makes a clicking sound) while in a USB2 enclosure even with a Y USB2 cable, for some reason it works with this one using a USB3 cable, however it doesn't work if I use a micro USB2 cable.
