I have several adapters with ASMedia controllers that have a VID:PID of 174c:55aa and they all boot from USB 3.0 with UAS enabled (no quirks required), although some older ones didn't support TRIM until I updated their firmware (which is hard to find).
This Eluteng USB 3.0 to SATA-III adapter cable (Amazon USA link
/ Amazon UK link
) works out of the box with UAS and TRIM. The old version of this adapter with a black SATA connector also boots fine, but needs a firmware update for TRIM.
So from my experience, the Eluteng adapter cable I linked above is the one to get. If you want to hunt down ASMedia firmware updates and the flashing utility there are others that can have TRIM fixed (or if you are using HDD then TRIM, quirks and UAS doesn't really matter).
I've bought 10 of these Eluteng adapters from UK Amazon this year (April - July) and they've all been as HawaiianPi
noted above - using the ASMedia chipset and with a VID:PPID of 174c:55aa.
, I've just purchased two more (same UK Amazon link, end of September) and they've got a JMicron Technology JMS567 SATA 6Gb/s bridge within. Their VID:PID is 152d:0578 and they most definitely do not support UAS. They need quirks to operate when plugged into a USB3 socket.
The product description says they support UASP, so they'll be going back. Incidentally, the colour of the SATA socket is blue, just like all the ones with the ASMedia chipset.
So be careful when buying, and check what you get.
