Help Us Decide: USB 3.0 with UASP + eSATA, or 3.1 Rev 2 with UASP?

  • Episode 635
  • December 4, 2019

Okay, here's the dilemma: There are two NAS Enclosures. They're exactly the same price. They are virtually identical. The only difference is the connectivity, and therefore, the speed of data access. Unit 1 provides USB 3.0 with UASP (5 Gb/sec) and eSATA (6 Gb/sec). Unit 2 provides only USB 3.1 Rev 2 with UASP (10 Gb/sec). Would you go with the faster Unit 2, keeping in mind that the computer we want to connect it to only has USB 3.0 UASP (so the unit will still only run at 5 Gb/sec unless we later upgrade our computer)? Or would you go with the more connectivity options of Unit 1? Help us decide, and we'll review the one the community picks (majority rules).
