- Worked great for a lil bit- July 23, 2021
Bought this a few months ago, almost a year and it worked great. Now it does not show up when I plug it in no matter what I do with it. (Windows 10, Windows 11). At first every time I plugged it in my mouse cursor would creep all over the screen. As soon as I unplugged this device my cursor would go back to normal. THERE ARE NO DRIVERS THAT I CAN FIND!
- Super fast Data Transfers, True USB 3.1 raid drive- May 2, 2018
Using XPS 8930, 2xSSDs in Raid 0, large files; Write all day long at 500MB/sec, read 700MB/sec the limited only by the desktop. Excellent external Raid enclosure for two SATA drives.
- Slow on USB 3.0- March 24, 2018
Should be getting close to 1Gbps with 2x SSD drives Raid 0, only getting around 250Mbps transfer speeds on USB 3.0. Disappointing!
