Pros: It communicates via USB 3.0 just fine, with its ASMedia ASM1053 chip being one of the better ones. My USB 3.0 boards and cards are pre-UASP, so I cannot test that.
It's a slim design. My drive is 7mm, the maximum, so it fits snugly. Unlike with some other enclosures, the drive slides into the socket without much tilting.
Cons: The latching mechanism for the top employs two cheesy end-latches that are opened / closed by pushing to the side. I would not recommend using this as an ersatz dock as I think the latches will eventually fail.
The bottom piece is matte plastic, perfect for the intended use. However, the top is highly polished plastic which would make an FBI fingerprint technician positively green with envy. The top should have been given the matte finish of the bottom or even been made of matte-black anodized aluminum so the heat would radiate away.
Other Thoughts: I'm going to use something abrasive on the top to eliminate the shine.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: StarTech USBFAB_10 10 ft Beige Beige A to B USB 2.0 Cable - M/M
Pros: I wanted a cable to match the color of my Canon laser printer. It needed to be long enough to reach to multiple PCs at the other end of the table. This cable works reliably. Did I mention that it is beige?
Other Thoughts: So much better than the ubiquitous black or grey.READ FULL REVIEW
