This review is from: Team C12G 32GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model TC12G32GW01
Pros: - Cheap.
- Seem to work.
Cons: - Slow (but what do you expect from a cheap USB 2.0 thumbdrive).
- Out of 3 supposedly identical units purchased, one of them has a capacity of just shy of 31 GB instead of the advertised 32 GB. (And yes, I'm counting based on decimal "disk drive" gigabytes, not binary gigabytes.)
Other Thoughts: Not worth the hassle to RMA the undersized one. But calling it a 32 GB drive in the product listing is misleading!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Tried it with several USB 3.0 devices, seems to work well.
Cons: Supplied cable is way too short.
Other Thoughts: To the guy complaining about the "proprietary" connector: That's not a proprietary connector, that's a standard USB 3.0 micro B. USB 3.0 requires extra wires, and there isn't room for the extra contacts inside a USB 2.0 micro B connector.
If you look inside the larger plug at the other end of the cable, you will also see 5 extra contacts further down inside the plug.
You can use a standard USB 2.0 micro B cable if you want, but then the hub will only run at USB 2.0 speeds.
Pros: Flexibility of both USB 2.0 (for widest compatibility) and eSATA (for fastest throughput). Solid construction. Simple drive installation.
Other Thoughts: The included USB Y-cable can be used to power it when using it in eSATA mode. Would've been nice if they had provided an AC adapter too, but the power jack is compatible with the AC adapters used by many USB hubs. I had an extra AC adapter from a USB hub that died in my spares pile, and it works great with this enclosure.READ FULL REVIEW
