zoom UAC-2 USB 3 INTERFACE ..anyone tried one?got to be cheapest usb3 out there..

I currently use a tc electroinic konnekt6 firewire interface and I love it but it seems firewire is being fazed out for thunderbolt and most interfaces I can find are usb2 but ive used those in the past and they all under perform my trusty konekt 6 so im looking for a new one ..hopefully usb 3 as that has faster speeds than usb2 and will last longer than firewire.

cheapest one I can find is the zoom uac-2 its usb3 but is it good?i cant find reviews on it andcan only find info on the thunderbolt version and that's got good reviews..my only concern is I had a zoom 1206 many years ago and it was ok but its inputs would hiss like a popped car tyre .

id like usb 3 but range is limited?or should I just stick with my konnkkt 6 and hope tc electrnic still make drivers for it?thanks

I use a UAC-2 for live gigs. I'm very happy with it. Latencies are very low, and sound quality with in- and outputs is impressive for this kind of money. Drivers are generally stable, but on my studio machine (I only use Mac) there is an odd incompatibility with Automap. I have been in touch with Novation about it, but they have not been able to resolve it yet.

Other than that...
