StarTech ECUSB3S22 USB ExpressCard 2 x USB 3.0
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs For Linux Fedora users ... 08/23/2012

This review is from: StarTech ECUSB3S22 USB ExpressCard 2 x USB 3.0

Pros: See my initial review, still working strong after a wk of hard use on several machines, Windows 7 and Linux.

Cons: Nothing.

Other Thoughts: Vanilla Fedora 17 (and perhaps other Linuxes) didn't install the xhci_hcd module by default, so USB 3.0 devices are unlikely to work or even be recognized. For reliable operation, you must yum install kernel-modules-extra

Then everything issmooth and fast.

5 out of 5 eggs Plug and play in Fedora but not Windows 7 08/19/2012

This review is from: StarTech ECUSB3S22 USB ExpressCard 2 x USB 3.0

Pros: 59 MB/s sustained write of many 0.5 GB files to WD My Passport 500 GB drive w/ ftp over 1 Gb/s ethernet on Dell Vostro 1720 laptop running Fedora 17. 4x faster than laptop's USB 2.0 ports to same drive.

I disabled port power saving to prevent disk spin-down.

Cons: Windows 7 driver was bit of a chore, not plug and play. Don't use driver on the CD, instead go to startech.com site and get latest.

WD Raptor 3000BLFS 300GB 10000 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fast but can only install in 3.5in enclosure.

Cons: Too thick to fit in any external USB 2.5in enclosure that I can find. Newegg description says 9.4mm, WRONG. I thought it would be 12.5mm, not no it's 14.5 thick. No RMA possible, thanks a lot.

Other Thoughts: 4 star product, 1 star for newegg
