The listing states that this drive is USB 3.0, however, the model number (shown as the "mode number") on one of the listing's photos is ECD819-SU, which is USB 2.0. The USB 3.0 version of this drive is the ECD819-SU3, which is NOT the drive pictured in this listing.

A quick search shows the ECD819-SU available for $13.90 shipped (not via Amazon), though, if the Amazon seller in this post actually does ship the ECD819-SU3, that's a moot point.

Good catch.

No one wants a USB 2.0 external drive at this point.

The ECD819-SU3 is available for $16.97 or $13.85 from Fasttech, though I'm not familiar with that site, so I don't know if they're reputable.

edit: nvm, the ECD819-SU3 on fasttech is listed as just an enclosure. So, is the ECD819-SU/ECD819-SU3 a full drive or just an enclosure? Not touching this one..

Also GearBest [gearbest.com] has ECD819-SU3 listed as the brand SunValley. DeepFox on AliExpress [aliexpress.com] as an enclosure only. Maikou on Everbuying [everbuying.net]. VersionTech, MthsTec [yoyoshare.com], Pop-Up Mobile [picclick.com], airthd [amazon.fr]... Perhaps these are generic and anyone can slap whatever drives in them and brand them with their own brand (white box?)?

For Hard Drives. However, when it comes to DVD drives, even the fastest DVD drives on the market get nowhere near the bandwidth limitations of USB 2.0.
