This review is from: Mediasonic USB3.0 UASP HUR1-SU3-WT 2.5" / 3.5" SATA HDD Station
Pros: After rebate, 4 bucks.
nothing outside features listed v. price paid
Cons: 1. Device is decidely light-weight, and could be prone to tipping if not careful. I have another one that is weighted on the bottom. Maybe I could glue it to something small and heavy to give it better balance?
2. Had a good amount of trouble setting it up. This is the first device in a long time that I've had that cared which way I plugged it into the outlet. If it matters, one of the prongs needs to be bigger to force correct orientation. I spent ten minutes trying to get it to turn on, until FINALLY turning the AC adapter over to plug in the other way. Voila!
3. No eject button. Which means that I have to man-handle the base to carefully and straightly pull the drives out ever so carefully. It only really matters for the 2.5" drives, since they have much more room to lean.
4. I am running 64 bit windows 7 on the machine to which it's connected. It took a long time to get it drivers to work. I finally had to give up on one usb 3 controller on my tower and use another. Still took 15 minutes for it to "find" drivers for it and set it up.
Other Thoughts: I bought this as a spare, so we'll see if it holds up, but so far it does what it advertised.... once I got it all set up.
Speed is as advertised, so once functional, I'm satisfied.
Pros: Took PC gamer's advice for their Holiday issue. Got his over the best i7. No problems at all with stock cooler, no OC'ing, and Shadow of Mordor with Max settings is beautiful.
Cons: noneREAD FULL REVIEW
