Not one of my 3x's ever had this problem with their USB cable.
You can't not notice the case and connector improvement. Go ahead and write off the rest, but you really can't deny these two. The MS3 PRO connectors are way better than a DB37. Also you can't deny that adjusting pots is a pain in the *** that is 100% not required on the MS3 PRO. I have adjusted pots on every MS3X I've installed (all 2...) but not on a MS3 PRO.

Also would be curious to see one of the non-MS3 PRO logs posted that shows the signals as clean as my MS3 PRO's signals under load.

Dunno about USB problems, but on my MS3 PRO I just plug the usb cable in and it works. Is yours not USB?

I forgot to clarify that I used the PNP-PRO. Different case and connectors

The only time I had to adjust pots was on Brains MS3x cause he was too busy taking HDR shots of his cats and didn't do it

Nice

And for the record: I'm not completely knocking the PRO, after everything was worked out (lack of documentation and some issues with base map settings) the only problem that really pissed me off was the constant disconnecting between laptop and unit, and that never happened with the 3x cause I tested it just to make sure.

Otherwise car ran like a champ.
