Pros: This unit has worked well as a dual USB adapter and as a drive cloner.
Cons: The instruction manual is worse than useless. The instructions are inaccurate and misleading. The manual gives inaccurate instructions in many languages. Do not attempt to follow the instructions. Find a YouTube video online. The clone procedure is roughly: Press the button until both lights blink then another 30 seconds. Release the button for 5 seconds and press it again and hold until the progress light starts to flash. Wait several hours for the operation to complete.
Overall Review: This works well, the design is attractive, but it has one of the worst user interface designs of any piece of equipment of any kind that I have used in my life.
Pros: - High capacity (up to 2TB)
- Low Cost
- High speed
- M.2 NVME
Cons: - Does not benchmark well due to architecture
- Slow for very large singe transfers
Overall Review: This drives performs well in situations with normal read/write patterns. Because the high-density multi-voltage write technology is slower than lower density technology, it uses a fairly large high-speed write cache, but if you overflow that cache, the speed drops off substantially.
In normal use (booting, copying files, reading) the drive performs amazingly. It will slow down after really large writes such as drive cloning, moving multiple large files at once, or... benchmarks. That is the nature of this technology,
A small price to pay for not facing the myriad of issues caused by tiny boot drives.
