I don't know if this really belongs here, but it was the best place I could think of putting it. If it belongs somewhere else, freely move it.
I was wanting some recommendations for a USB 3.0 external enclosure for optical drives. I want one so when I get new internal drives, I can connect them externally and test them before I put them in internally. I can then save some time should a drive be borked or just plain junk.
Basically, I want one where someone has tested it and found out it doesn't have the semaphore time out error on their setup. No guarantee it won't time out on MY setup, but it saves me from getting one where someone has found it does have a bridge suffering from semaphore time out errors.
