    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    -Handy never-to-loose cable
    -Good M/B compatibility
    -Only one usb port needed
    -Carrying pounch included

    Cons:

    -Glossy plastic, easy to scratch
    -Bent usb plug (sometimes hard to connect in a bunch of wires)
    -Poor parts fixation
    -Bad (in my situation) USB 3.0 perfomance

    OtherThoughts:

    It has a handy cable that is impossible to forget or loose, very easy to store in minimum space. But screws holding parts together are too small and unreliable (After two month I had to glue the case). Unfortunately I couldn't make it work in USB 3.0 mode on my Asus M4A88T-I Deluxe motherboard W7 x64 under any driver configuration. While it is equipped with JMS539 chip which really declares USB 3.0 support, datarate did never exceeded 30mbps (USB 2.0 maximum).

    Bottomline:

    Nice really portable device (one usb port power is always enough, good cable), but speed isn't fascinating.
