Great Product for Older Cases without standard USB 3.0 motherboard connector.
Pros: -Works as advertised -Price is fair
Other Thoughts: Used this product for the front USB 3.0 port on my Corsair 600T case. Since that case was developed when there was no standard USB 3.0 header, it used a pass through to a rear port. This product allowed me to utilise the front port via the motherboard header instead of taking up a rear port.

Cons: Got two of these cables so that I could move an external Seagate 1T USB3 drive off the top of the system. Also got one for a friend's Seagate. Tried both cables and the Seagates didn't work with this cables, wouldn't power up or would constantly cycle trying to connect to the computers. Also tried the cables on an computer I have, same results. All connection attempts were from the rear connectors on the boards. Removing this cable and plugging in HD's they connected with no problems. After doing this I tried using a Rosewill USB 3.0 external case (RX100-PU3-25B) with a 320gb hd in it. Still no luck getting it to connect to any computer in a USB 3 port. Now to use the Buffalo USB 2.0 external hd I have and give it a try. No problems there, connected just fine. So next grab a few usb flash drives, both 2.0 and 3.0 flavors, and give them a shot. No problems connecting there either, all connected. So it seems that this cable can't handle the external USB 3 hd's well at all as none of the 3 drives I tried would connect or power up.
Other Thoughts: Would not recommend if you want to use this for a Seagate ext USB3 hd or if using the Rosewill USB3 RX100-PU3-25B case.
