 JMicron JMS578 think is getting best approval but to be honest USB to Sata is stinky especially with multiple file transfers.
If your going to use a singular drive give it a test on multiple file access.
Then multiple disk... mweh.

I have sort of given up on USB for what I would call traditional multidisk NAS

Inatech is a ASM one but just do some googling and check the chipset. Linux 4.4 doesn't do USB3.1 it was either 4.6 or 4.9 (forgot which).

USB 3.0 I would go for JMicron JMS578 with the  ASM1153E a close 2nd.

The newer ones maybe even better but there are less reviews with the ASM1351 and VIA’s VL716.

https://www.asmedia.com.tw/eng/e_show_pr...e_index=97 ASM1153E (I think that might be UAS blacklisted)
https://www.jmicron.com/product0201.html JMS578 
https://www.asmedia.com.tw/eng/e_show_pr...7&item=156  ASM1351
https://www.via-labs.com/product_show.php?id=68 VIA’s VL716

Have a browse of the Armbian and OMV forums and ask a question.

Just get an adapter from ebay or amazon do a bit of reserach so you know the chipset.
Just grab any hardrive and see what you get for a single transfer and then queue up some simultaneous transfers and see how much you lose.

I only can find docking stations on Ebay with the JMS578.

Amazon just search for usb+3.0+sata+iii+12v "copy and paste that" 
Same on ebay.

PS weird about those links on differing sites as they did work. Its like the chip manufactures apart from via are stopping access.

Inateck USB 3.0 to SATA III Hard Drive Adapter
Orico USB 3.0 to SATA III Hard Drive Adapter

Seem to be pretty good and much cheaper than the startech ones.
