I have an external Addonics hot-swap (warm-, actually)
enclosure. While it connects fine to the USB on the chassis, I have
never achieved transfer rates over ~3.6 bytes/sec (as measured by
dump) on what is rated for 80 mbytes/sec. While there is no
conclusive evidence, eliination of other likely suspects leaves
poorly designed/implemented hardware as the prime candidate.
