Pros: It includes power for the hard drives (both SATA and IDE), uses USB 3, and doesn't give me false "bad block errors" on my 3TB hdd's like my old USB 2 Startech adapter did.
Cons: USB 3 is still slower on a 7500 rpm hdd than SATA is for doing a full disk scan. Considering that the theoretical throughput on usb 3 is several times faster than the sustainable throughput of a traditional hdd, I was hoping for better performance, but it's still pretty good.
Other Thoughts: The best external HDD adapter that I have at the moment. Every IT tech should have something like this.
