Pros: I've only worked with this StarTech USB 3.1 dock a few days now but I'm mighty impressed with its performance. My system is an ASRock Z170 Extreme 7+ that has, of course, USB 3.1 capability.
Obviously I purchased this device for one reason, and one reason only, and that is speed. It hasn't disappointed me in that regard. While I haven't benchmarked its performance it's obvious that it is considerably faster than USB 3.0. There's simply no comparison. I've been using the device for moving/copying large chunks of data between my system's SSDs & HDDS and have used both of those types of drives as well in the unit. I also use the device for my disk-cloning operations that I use for comprehensive backups of my system (frequently on a daily basis).
The device is nicely designed - it's quite compact (see the Newegg specs), and wisely installed the power switch & bright blue LED on the front/top of the case. The drive eject button is adequate.
Cons: Obviously the price.
Other Thoughts: Highly recommended if your system can support USB 3.1 capability and can afford the rather steep sales price.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The color rendition is excellent - vibrant & realistic colors. Text display is reasonably sharp down to the smaller font sizes. I performed some tests with online monitor testing programs and the monitor's performance was excellent.
Cons: Haven't found any significant cons after working with the monitor for the past two months.
Other Thoughts: I'm not a gamer but two of my grandchildren who are tested the Samsung and both were enthusiastic over its performance with their games.
While the monitor is supplied with an HDMI cable it would also have been appropriate to include a DisplayPort cable since the monitor has DP capability.
Pros: Is it possible you have not turned the ON-OFF power switch to ON? Strange as it seems we've found a number of users who have failed to activate that switch.
Cons: The device is not configured by the manufacturer so that the mobile rack will accommodate a 2 1/2" SSD without a user fashioned workaround. Otherwise, a superb product for a desktop PC.READ FULL REVIEW
