USB3 very easy broken not worth to buy

on 7/2/2014

I brough this product around March, 2014. setup and load driver is OK. Support engineer also helpful. But this product has bad hardware design on USB3 connection. it is very easy to broken on USB3 connection due to "not support" area. My third time use this device and USB3 broken. After USB3 broken there is not way to use it any more. Not suggest to buy it.
