no SSD is involved.

All my external drives are spinning HDDs only and I returned tons of
ordered hard drive enclosures to my dealer and joined countless forums

encountered more issues related to anything else, but fishy USB to SATA
controllers, while using HDDs only as external drives.

internal used SSDs. For the SSDs I'm using, the vendor provides
proprietary software for Linux.

I seriously wonder that using a SSD as an external drive gains
anything, but trouble.

I've got no good experiences with UAS(P) when using HDDs. Remember, I
don't use SSDs as external drives. IIUC UAS(P) is required to enable
