As always, works great
Pros: Easy of set up
Overall Review: This is my fifth enclosure. All house SSD that I use with USB 3.0 hubs for image backup and scratch disk. Also use as totes to move clients files from my workstations to theirs. Very fast upload and download makes everyone happy!
Pros: sounded like a solution
Cons: did not work. drivers never loaded properly. search found that the provided drivers were the best but the external esata drives would never mount. tried changing USB ports, turning drives on and off, restarting the computer, searching the net for solutions. Nothing
Works great once you get it installed
Pros: After getting a blazing, for me, 281 mb/s read rate, my Anker 7 Port USB 3.0 hub slowed down to 89 mb/s. I unplugged 4 of the ports and for a short period the one SD card reader jumped back to 280+ mb/s. This short dropped back to 91 mb/s. Finally, replaced the Anker SD card reader with a Lexas USB 3.1 SD card reader and am now back up to 281 mb/s. What is going on?
Cons: The plate that mounts to the computers frame doesn't line up. It took a half dozen attempts to bend it this way and that until I was able to tighten down the screw without the card slipping out of the PCIe slot. This is a real problem as I was not confident that the card was seated properly when I finally got it secured. However, it seems to be working fine.
