How is this one different from the Syba SY-ENC25051 offered earlier?

The chip inside, I think? This one (ENC25049) has the Asm1153 chipset which reportedly supports 1TB drives, while the older-mentioned ENC25051 has a JMS Chipset, reportedly supporting up to 4TB.

I'm getting it just for the USB3 cable though.

Free 2-day shipping of this enclosure is available via ShopRunner, if you have that service available to you, say through their Amex partnership [shoprunner.com].

Only 1TB drives? Bummer.

FYI, also buried in the reviews. I guess for a $1, shouldn't complain. Of course, SDers would complain even if it was a $10 money maker. laugh out loud

This enclosure uses the ASM1153 chipset, which is the ASMedia third generation single chip solution, bridging the USB 3.0 to Serial SATA host interface with highly integrated SuperSpeed USB 3.0, High Speed USDB 2.0 and SATA 1.5/3.0 Gbps ASMedia self -designed PHYs. The chipset doesn't support the SATA III interface speed of 6 Gbps. The maximum USB 3.0 speed is 5 Gbps, so this enclosure will not maximize the USB 3.0 transfer rate (only reach 60% of the maximum USB 3.0 transfer rate at best). While still faster than USB 2.0, it doesn't maximize USB 3.0 transfer rate capabilities.

I've had trouble with a few different third party USB 3 enclosures losing connection during large file transfers. So much so that they are effectively unusable. Can anyone vouch that this particular model is reliable?

Sounds like the ASM chipset is trash and the JMS one preferable.

So if I plan to use a ssd in a enclosure and want to maximize its speed then which brand and model is best?

Btw can these enclosure firmwares be updated?

Sorry newbie here 😂

I grabbed it a year ago, ignorant of the inferiority of its chipset, and should still have a picture of the UPC squirreled away somewhere. Let me know if nobody else steps up.
