I bought one.

I loaded the page and then went and grabbed a beverage. When I came back it was sold out.


#5

Don’t feel too bad. I don’t think this one has an NEC chipset.

If you did buy one, then let us know what chip it does have for certain.


#6

I e-mailed the SYBA company site before I bought it.
This is their reply:
"This enclosure is using the Prolific PL2506 chipset "
A friend with a different SYBA enclosure has the NEC.
Still for the price I thought I would give it a try.

OK, that’s an older chipset. The latest USB2-only chipset from Prolific is the PL-2507. There are tests and benchmarks of the latter, but none I could find of the former. I guess we’ll have to wait until you report your experience with it.
