How sturdy is the micro USB 3.0 connector on the Pyra? I worry because the one on my external hard drive seems flimsy, and disconnects internally if it moves too much.
Yes I have two cables. One was definitely bad so I threw it out but the other one doesn't work too well either.Have you tried with different cables? I've heard of surface mount micro USB sockets physically coming off boards, but in my experience cheap cables are usually the culprit if power or data is intermittent.
The Pyra one shouldn't come off the board as easily, as IIRC it's thru hole mounted. I'll leave it to you to validate that assertion if you care about it; I've not checked the photos recently.
