To test the MUKii TransImp TIP-330U3-BK USB 3.0 drive enclosure, the following base system was used:

ASUS M4A89GTD Pro/USB3 Motherboard
Thermaltake Frio CPU Cooler
8GB Samsung Generic DDR3 10600 Memory
eVGA GeForce 275GTX Video Card
Kingston 128GB SSDNow V+
Seagate 7200.11 1.5TB
Seagate 7200.12 1.0TB
LG Blu-Ray Burner
Corsair CS600 Power Supply

The TransImp TIP-330U3-BK will be tested against other USB 3.0 devices, such as Seagate's GoFlex Desk 1TB USB 3.0 and Thermaltake's BlacX 5G hard drive dock. The same hard drive will be installed in the MUKii U3 and the Thermaltake 5G; a 250GB 3.5" Seagate 7200.12.

The following tests will be executed on each configuration to gauge its performance:

Real World Transfers
CrystalDiskMark 2.2

A quick test reveals the "Turbo" software doesn't increase the speed when using the USB 3.0 connection. It does increase the speed of the USB 2.0 connection by about 8mb/s.

Real World File Transfer

To test the real world performance of the TransImp TIP-330U3-BK, two file types were selected. One folder containing 5GB of MP3 files (small files), and another 7.3GB ISO (large file) will be used for the test. The speeds will be timed with a stopwatch, which will be started when the mouse button is released to copy the files to the hard drive.

The MUKii enclosure was the slowest of the group, coming in about 15 seconds after the Thermaltake BlacX 5G dock. While I was hoping the Turbo option would work with this enclosure, I found that it doesn't do much over USB 3.0 (same results with the 2.5" version of this enclosure).

As with the large file transfer, the MUKii was about 15 seconds slower than the Thermaltake BlacX 5G dock, and about 6 seconds slower than the Seagate GoFlex Desk.
