This is a great little device which helps get around one of the shortcomings of the Raspberry Pi. My application requires writing video surveillance events to disk, which is not ideal for an sd card. After popping in a 512GB Samsung ssd, I attached the device to my Pi 3, and nothing happened. An lsusb revealed no new devices. Since this thing is supposed to be plug and play, I did the only thing I could think of. I swapped the usb cable for another and then everything worked. Got it. Not all usb cables are created equal.
Since I am a cheap skate, I must admit I first purchased some of the ultra cheap mSATA-USB adapters found on E-Bay. However, I got what I paid for, and I only discovered the Ableconn PIUSB2MSA after I went looking for something better than what I had.
The Ableconn PIUSB2MSA isn't exactly cheap, but it does ship from the USA so shipping time is reasonable. The fact that it works, and works well, is enough for me to recommend this item to...
Bought this for an embedded USB host for amateur radio project. It works as designed with raspberry pi, but also works well in a windows environment. Windows 10 has no problem recognizing it, and connected USB devices work as expected. In my case, using four FTDI USB - TTL RS232 converters for software control of two radios with two available ports for each, one for communication between radio(s) and computer, and the other to provide second port for Transmit / PTT and or FSK contol of both rigs. set up is relatively inexpensive fits in small enclosure and all work nicely together. Will order second for more of the same.
Do your research first to understand what you're getting into. This board performs exactly as I had hoped it would in setting up a "carputer." I added a 256GB mSata drive to it so I could take a large music selection on the go but my project was in depth. I needed this board, a HiFi DAC, a 7" touchscreen, and of course the power necessary to run it with my Pi.
