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

-Handy never-to-loose cable -Good M/B compatibility -Only one usb port needed -Carrying pounch included
-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
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).
Nice really portable device (one usb port power is always enough, good cable), but speed isn't fascinating.
