5 out of 5 eggsEZ DOES IT

Pros: This product exactly what it was asked to do. Connected new drive and cloned 2nd drive in 40 minutes. Going from a 129gb to a 240gb was just a treat to see something work in such a positive manner. May later upgrade to SSD in an HP probbook with Win 7 Pro.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsA Solid Cable

Pros: This cable is well constructed and has given a year of service without a problem. The cable ends are molded with just the right amount of strain relief. I use it with an SSD on a fast computer at work that has USB 3.0 ports. Then I bring it home so I can access my work on the weekends on my older machine via USB 2.0. Both setups work fine. I boot Ubuntu Linux in both places without problem.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I am reviewing the cable alone, not the software. I purchased just the cable at a local electronics store.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Product -- Worth the $

Pros: Worked out of the Box as advertised -- no issues.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: CD offered to download new version of the program off the website. Did so. Cloned my 256Gb SSD "C" drive to a new 512Gb SSD, swapped them out, and was up and running in minutes with no issues. Used the cable on a usb3 port, and then cleaned the old SSD for use as an extra data drive. Worked like a charm!

5 out of 5 eggsWorked well for me

Pros: Worked

Cons: None for me

Other Thoughts: I bought this in January when I discovered the drive cloning hardware/software combination I had been using for years did not work on my Dell Latitude 6520 with UEFI bios. Who knew? A tech I know recommended the Apricorn system and it has worked to clone 2 drives to Samsung SSDs. I had no problems with either the hardware or software, either with USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 ports.

5 out of 5 eggsGood software for cloning

Pros: Cloned drive in my Dell Latitude 6520

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this system when I discovered that the software I had been using to clone drives did not work for UEFI drives. Who knew? I have used this hardware/software combination to clone 2 hard drives to Samsung SSDs and both times it has worked flawlessly. A computer tech I know that works for one of my clients uses Apricorn exclusively as well.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Product-download their latest software

Pros: Good product for many systems.

Cons: Didn't work reliably on 2/3 laptops on USBN 3.0 ports, USB 2.0 ports worked flawless.
Backup software is slower than OEM software I have used from Intel(arconis) and Transcend, however it does work.
Device wasn't recognized on all systems using the included software, however, downloading their updated software(free) resolved the issue.
.

Other Thoughts: This is a very nice software and hardware package that will meet most users needs very nicely at a better price than you find at retail outlets.

1 out of 5 eggsAPRICORN ASW-USB3-25 USB3.0 to SATA Adapter

Pros: Product works as advertised.

Cons: This product had a rebate form, but I had inadvertently thrown out the packaging, and the UPC code.
I contacted Apricorn, and was referred to Customer Service Rep.
Left a message, but never received a return call.

POOR customer service, and will look elsewhere in the future.

5 out of 5 eggsApricorn HD Clone

Pros: Worked perfect. Cloned a 120gb SSD to a 750Gb SSD without an issue!

Cons: Was slower than I thought it would be. Took 1+20 to clone 108gb. About 23mb/sec. Using a USB 3.0? Oh well, still worked.
