Don’t know about you guys, but my biggest challenge is to find usb 3.0 controllers that actually do what they are supposed to do.
Tried NEC first - work fine on intel, but incompatible with AMD systems
Then Freso chips… the controller worked fine at first, then I noticed the 4th port would go down if all others were connected. Have a 2nd one, same issue.
I also have a VIA controller, so far that seems to work best - but I have not tried connecting all ports yet.
Sometimes I lose a few drives when a controller goes fubar…
I’d like to have more internal disks, but they are just too expensive.
What do you use?
