the thing that makes me really annoyed at usb is that it degrades silently; like the cable will still work, except it will charge slowly, or it will kick the speed back to usb2, and I only notice it months later. or it will work, but sometimes, and then my disks keep being kicked out of the raid and rebuilding. even buying the expensive brand-name usb cables (Anker etc.), they fail in these soft ways too soon and too often. I used to think my usage pattern was the problem (since apparently some people never go through broken usb cable hell), but the NAS disks literally never move, they just sit there permanently plugged in, and still unexplainably disappear or downgrade to usb2.
