Customer Reviews

Junk No matter what I did it won't connect at USB 3.0 speeds. The device keeps flashing red LED indicating that it is working as 2.0, which can be confirmed by pathetic transfer speeds.Windows 7 x64 BSODed once during SSD activity via this adapter.Documentation calls for a download of some "AI Turbo" utility from [...] to "increase transfer speeds". At the moment of writing of this review the [...] site was conveniently down.After tracking down a copy of AI Turbo on a different site and installing it on my machine it appears that it doesn't improve transfer a single bit. As an added bonus, it turns out that unless I have an SSD or HDD attached to this adapter during Windows boot, it would shut down all other USB devices attached to the computer (that is, including keyboard and mouse). Also Windows would hang on OS shutdown if there's no HDD attached to the adapter.EDIT 1: Got a replacement unit from SYBA. The replacement shows exactly the same set of problems.EDIT 2: After several rounds of installing and uninstalling different versions of USB and motherboard chipset drivers and several OS reboots I finally made it connect at 3.0 speed. This is the only USB 3.0 device I own which requires this particular combination of drivers, all others seemed to be working fine without it. The adapter continues to exhibit strange behavior, from time to time it connects in read-only mode. There have been several random disconnects during read/write operations (i.e. disk drive disappears in Windows).EDIT 3: Attempted to use it to install Ubuntu on a spare Intel SSD drive I had laying around. It required a couple of reboots for BIOS to recognize the drive as bootable... After Ubuntu boots, in 10 to 15 seconds the drive becomes unusable (i.e. disk randomly dismounts or becomes read-only). 1Actually works Always weary about things like this that run on the cheaper side but this really does work! Works well! 5Little tricky to remember the correct sequence but works great for storage Little tricky to remember the correct sequence but works great for storage, does disconnect if setting idle but I use it for backing up data. 4Works fine and gets decent performance Works fine and gets decent performance. Uses a mini-USB 3.0 cable, other USB 3.0 enclosures I have use micro-USB instead, but micro-USB 3.0 is wider (though thinner) than mini-USB 3.0, so not sure that is a bad choice. The cable is very short ~8", and thicker and less flexible than any USB 3.0 cable I've used. The enclosure would look good but the logo on the top is ugly, and the venting on the front looks really cheap. The drive was not to hard to install, though you have to bend the circuit board back a little to fit it in. The drive orientation also means that the top, which you'd like to touch the case for cooling reasons instead touches the plastic tray, while the bottom, which you'd like insulated, instead points up, touching it's circuit board to the metal top. It looked like the screws in the drive might keep it from short circuiting the board, but I didn't trust it so I put some packing tape on the drive to protect it. There is a foam pad included to mount thin 2.5" drives securely. 3Performance about the same as non-encrypted adapter The encrypted drive read/write performance sometimes outperformed the same ssd in a non-encrypted enclosure. 5Not for Debian users Useless on Debian Linux system. Even disabling autosuspend in GRUB wouldn't prevent the enclosure from locking after a few minutes. 2Doesn't Work I bought this to replace an 8GB hardware-encrypted flash drive that I carry with me every day. I use the flash drive to have easy access to personal files on the go, and the hardware encryption keeps it safe in case I lose the drive. I nearly filled the 8GB USB drive, so I decided to get a larger one, but found that larger hardware-encrypted flash drives have gotten quite expensive. I came across this Syba hardware-encrypted hard disk enclosure, and thought with a small SSD, that this would be ideal. I didn't want to use a spinning disk due to the unit being tossed around in my backpack, onto the table at home after work, etc. - physical things that SSDs are immune to. Too bad it doesn't work.I found problems right from the start. First off, the unit cannot be used in a USB hub, unless the hub is powered. The unit pulls too much power, and thus an un-powered hub only provides enough power to power the enclosure's electronics, not the internal drive. I figured that since it was an SSD, that wouldn't be an issue, as spinning disks use more power during startup. I was able to program the PIN code, but it wouldn't unlock.So, I moved it directly to a USB port on my home computer, and was able to unlock the drive. I copied the contents of my USB flash drive to the hard drive, which seemed a bit slow, but I didn't perform a speed test, so I can't give exact numbers.I brought the drive with me to work, so that I could test it on my work laptop, and in a USB 3.0 port it unlocks, but when attempting to open the drive, it spins for roughly 30 seconds before opening the folder. I started trying to access a file, and then windows disconnected the drive saying that 'a hardware failure has occurred' and the drive was being disconnected. I rebooted my laptop, and for due diligence, I tried a USB 2.0 port. Same outcome. Basically, a known-good 180GB SSD drive is inaccessible in the unit. I removed the SSD and installed it in my computer to test the drive, and the drive has no errors, so this enclosure is to blame. 1Unimpressed. Horrible heat dissipation. All plastic body. Firmware is not user-friendly. Buttons are not responsive. 3works well First off, the instruction is misleading. You have to hold the 1&3 button and THEN plug into the USB port. I did a couple of test to see if I can access the data by removing the hard drive out of the unit and can't. I am ordering a second unit as a backup.I do recommend this unit. I work in IT and all of our external drives must be encrypted. 4Mounts as a CDROM I purchased this USB Adapter over a year ago. It wasn't exactly what I thought it would be but the differences do not affect his review. Every time I connect a hard drive using this adapter it mounts as a Read-Only CDROM drive. I have tried connecting to multiple computers with the same results. I have other USB adapters which work perfectly with the hard drives. 2
