I thought I would point out one for you guys, I ordered 4 of them and they all appear functional (even with UASP support for SSDs). They are based on the ASM1053 chipset.

International Purchase

 

If you want to create it bootable, I suggest an active fat-32 partition at the beginning of the drive, smaller then 100GB (some computers can't handle booting from a partition larger then 100-someGB). Really a 20GB partition is tons of space. fat-32 to conform to UEFI specs.

What model number?

Does it have screws?

What speeds do you get using an SSD on USB 3?

1) SSK HE-G300 (the page I linked is the same page I ordered from).
2) yes, two very tiny screws holding the case together (like the zm-ve300), and four that screw in from the bottom (when apart) to hold the HDD in.
3) Don't know until my msata --> 2.5" adapter arrives (was using my ssd in an msata enclosure previously), that'll be in the middle of the week. Mechanical drives get expected speeds (~80MBps for a large copy, 5400rpm). I'll do a full review when it arrives, pictures and the lot.

There is also the HE-G303 (which is supposed to be screwless), but I have no experience with that model, just the one I ordered.
