5 out of 5 eggsFast and easy to use

Pros: Competitively priced (at least when I bought it,) foolproof operation under Windows 7 and Mac OS 10.6, and fairly fast transfer speeds. I use mine mostly to get avi movies off my office computer and onto my HTPC.

Cons: Doesn't work with Linux, but that's already been established for these USB transfer cables.

1 out of 5 eggsnot really a cable; it's a usb thumb drive with a cable attached

Pros: <$10

Cons: not a USB transfer cable; rather a USB thumb drive with a cable attached. If you are not allowed to use thumb drives then this 'cable' is useless!

Other Thoughts: wanted to rate zero eggs but that is not possible

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for the inconvenience. The GYN262WE is a transfer cable that uses built in software. This software allows you to use the GUN262WE to transfer files from computer to computer. Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.

4 out of 5 eggsData Transfer Cable Review

Pros: Does as advertised. Programming is integrated so transferring is simplified.

Cons: Not observed as of yet.

Other Thoughts: Curious as to whether this cable could be utilized for transfers/downloads between/with other devices

2 out of 5 eggsHaven't been able to use it

Pros: Nice packaging and idea.

Cons: Says it works with WinXP but it keeps blue screening my laptop when launching the software. It seems to start up fine under Win 7 but it was bought to migrate from WinXP to Win7 which I can't use it for.

Other Thoughts: Wish it worked but the price was low enough that it would cost me almost as much to return the unit. Maybe I'll use it to upgrade from Windows 7 some day.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for the inconvenience. To better service you and understand your set up, please feel to contact our customer support at 1-866-946-4327 or email us: support@iogear.com.

5 out of 5 eggsIOGEAR Smartlink USB DAta Xfr Cable

Pros: Works as advertised; even a quick review of the instructions should get a capable user into transfering ith litle problems.

Cons: A bit slow in the transfer process, though the ease of use (start and go do soemthing ese) more than compensates

Other Thoughts: I am pleased when a product does exactly as promised at a very reasonable price!

2 out of 5 eggsNot working as expected (Win 8)

Pros: Moves the data, but not with prompts they say should be there.
You can move data both ways, if you need to.

Cons: Did not show the step by step; instead, window into the 'from' computer came up on the 'to' (Win 8.0) computer and, by my digging deeper, saw they wanted me to use Drag and Drop. The GUI/ step by step prompts did not appear, although they should have.

Other Thoughts: Not ready for prime time

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for the inconvenience. With the GUN262WE built in software you can easily copy or move files from one computer to another. To better service you and understand your set up, please feel to contact our customer support at 1-866-946-4327 or email us: support@iogear.com. Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.

2 out of 5 eggsnot practical for large amts data

Pros: Only good for small data amounts. It was free to me with other purchase. USB 3 IS much faster. I use network transfer or ext. hhd for transfer.

Cons: Too slow and difficult to transfer large data amounts.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for your experience. These comments will be forwarded to the product manager for review.

1 out of 5 eggsLinux users - this is not for you

Pros: none, it doesn't allow you to transfer files or act as a remote terminal device in Linux

Cons: Not for data transfer or remote communications either. This acts like 2 separate USB Keys, there is no connection between them. Both sides will mount but there is no common connection. You can copy a file to either side of the connection ok but then it doesn't show up on the other side and, unlike even a standard USB key, it disappears after unplugging the connection so its not really there.
The device info is: Ours Technology vendor=0ea0 product=2808

Other Thoughts: In Linux, this device shows up as mass storage. I bought it thinking I could use it to do "kernel debug over USB". I have two pc's both running Linux. I was hoping to use PC1 to debug the booting kernel on PC2 via this cable.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for the inconvenience. The GUN262WE is for Windows and Macs only, this is not Linux compatible. This is stated in the product specifications. The GUN262WE has built in software that must be installed on both computers. Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.
