Re: USB 2 VS USB3 problems solved

Since they generate heat internally, I would think you could place or wrap them in some kind of insulating material when it gets really cold.

Howdy Mike,

I also use the 3104. I’ve only had it for a little while, but I can
tell you they do run quite warm. The Rex more than the Lex (it draws
more current). I haven’t had them through a winter yet but I imagine
it would need to be quite cold to get them down to 0°.
Thanks, Eric; that's kind of what I expected at USB 3 speeds.
I can measure the Rex
ambient temperature under load if you like.
No, thanks; I'll go with my gut feeling.

Don’t pay $1k. Keep your eye on eBay. I got my set new in a sealed
ICRON box for half that.
Hmmm.... I found only one 3104 on eBay today, and it was $999.

Need to keep searching, I suppose.
