This review is from: Rosewill RNWA-UC1300 – USB 3.0 Cradle - Cable Length: 4 Feet (1.2 Meters)
Pros: Nice idea if it worked as described.
Cons: Purchased 2 of these. One was DOA and did not work at all. The other one only partially worked in that even though the cord was plugged into a USB 3.0 port, when I plugged the flash drive into the cradle the computer reported that the device could work faster if it was plugged into a USB 3.0 port which it was. So it was only operating as a USB 2.0 device. Hard to believe that someone cannot make a good USB 3.0 extension cable with a cradle that works!
Other Thoughts: Called Rosewill and they created a RMA for the two USB 3.0 cradles along with FREE return shipping and I sent them back for a refund.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great drive no problem so far other than missing middle mounting holes.
Cons: The 6TB and 8TB Seagate drives do not have the middle mounting holes on each side of the drives. They only come with two holes on each side of the drive. This may not be a problem for most people unless you are using these in a Sans Digital box that only uses these holes for mounting. Thanks Seagate for doing this. I am sure this saved them a penny a drive to omit these two middle mounting holes.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: They work great for use as a large drive for DVR applications. I have used four 6TB drives to make a Large 24 TB drive.
Cons: If you use the new Seagate ^TB and 8TB drives in thise or any other Sans Digital box like this beware there is no way to secure the drives in the box. These boxes use the middle hole on each side of the drive to secure the drive in the slot. The new 6TB and 8 TB Seagate drives do not have the middle hole like other drives. I guess Seagate is saving a penny per drive by omitting these two holes.READ FULL REVIEW
