    • My Raspberrypi NAS

      My little Raspberrypi 3 NAS.
      Built it for my Chruch.
      Top drive is the main drive 2tb 3.5 inch hard drive with Sata to USB adaptor.
      Lower one is a the rsync driver 2tb 3.5 inch drive with Sata to USB adaptor.

      Where have you found your Sata to USB adapter ? (I prefer ordering a good and working, already tested product )
      Then you should ask not only about what's written on the adaptor but what's inside (since that's all that matters. Around Raspberry Pis there are still vendors selling severly broken crap when it comes to storage like eg. the infamous GL830 USB-to-SATA bridge -- not only slow as hell but broken and eating your disk's last 2 sectors).

      @richprim you could provide 'lsusb' output helping people to identify which chipset is used in your devices.

      Most probably it's an ASM1153. Unfortunately ASMedia re-used the 55aa USB product ID for three totally incompatible chipsets (which is one of the reasons I try to avoid them in the meantime and look for JMS578 instead).

      I always search for chipsets and not brands since that's the most important thing :)

      just sometimes hard to find that info for a product

      Sure, but sometimes when the chipset is not mentioned as part of the product description it gets replaced without notice. You see a couple of reviews mentioning chipset A, then you order and get B (happened to me multiple times and that's why I changed my strategy).

      At least on Aliexpress, eBay or Amazon it simply works to shop by chipset, e.g.: amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?…aps&field-keywords=jms578

      Never tested myself and with Rasperry Pi pretty irrelevant anyway (since RPi is only capable of USB2 and has no UAS support). But this is the list I compiled wrt 'good' USB-to-SATA adapters: linux-sunxi.org/USB/UAS#UASP_c…ipsets_in_disk_enclosures

      With an RPi just try to avoid the crappy GL830 chipset and you're done (the Raspberry is the bottleneck anyway). But if you plan to use a better ARM board in the future you should already take care about good USB3 and UAS support.
