Working Well So Far
Pros: Smooth integration Fast data transfer - about 10MB/sec
Cons: I've been warned, by those that deal with failures, that the multi-TB laptop-size drives from all manufacturers are prone to damage from mechanical shock, so beware.
Overall Review: Recommended, and Seagate is my preferred brand.
Sorry, I couldn't get it to work
Pros: Looks well made - gold plated circuit board and connectors. Great Specs.
Cons: I was never able to get my Lenovo Windows 10 machine to see the device reliably. PnP/Device Manager showed it once or twice, but never consistently when I plugged the card into the PCI Express x4 bus. My PCI Express port checked out 100% functional with two other cards and the connectors looked fine on both my side and the USB card. I suspect some sort of flakiness on the board - i.e. noise or voltage sensitivity. All this with 3 different boards tried and exactly the same results.
Overall Review: I can't recommend it.
Product is Good, Service is Good
I got unlucky with this order: Order timing coincided with Lunar New Year, so delivery from Hong Kong was delayed by at least a week. All said, delivery was over a month, but product, price and service were fine.
