APRICORN VEL-SOLO-X2 Extreme Performance SSD Upgrade Kit for Desktop PCs and MacPro
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Great Performance, works with FreeBSD 09/08/2014

This review is from: APRICORN VEL-SOLO-X2 Extreme Performance SSD Upgrade Kit for Desktop PCs and MacPro

Pros: - Fast! 267 MiB/sec writes - 506 MiB/sec reads on an Intel 720 series SSD.
- Works with FreeBSD - uses the Marvell 88SE9182 chipset
- Awesome that it has an extra port in addition to the SSD slot.
- Fits in SuperMicro 1U rack servers (with a riser card).
- Appears to support port multipliers!!

Cons: none!

Other Thoughts: Benchmarking (using bonnie++) revealed that the controller preforms awesomely, even faster than the built in MB SATA controller on this SuperMicro server. Performance numbers above are likely the performance of the SSD (ie; that's the bottle neck, not the card). Perfect.

FreeBSD recognizes the card with no issues:

HooToo® HT-UH009 10-Port USB 3.0 Hub (12V/4A Power Adapter, Latest VIA VL812 Chipset, 3.3 feet USB 3.0 Cable)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Beefy, solid construction.
Sits on desk nicely, doesn't get 'pulled over'.
Smart port design (upward facing) and power in and USB in on the top helps keep it stable.
Per-port LEDs light up when a port is in use
Master on/off
Aux power supply so all ports deliver enough power
10 ports -- go home, you're done. You don't need anymore

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: FINALLY someone made a excellent USB hub .. and it's 3.0!
Power brick is almost as big as the unit itself but I can't list that as a con -- you want to those ports to deliver full power and there are 10!
