2 out of 5 eggsWorks On One Drive Only

Pros: Seems to work ok.

Cons: No support for eSata port multiplier, so cannot see both drives in the BlacX Duet I bought this to use with.

Other Thoughts: Probably an ok device, but I missed the bit about not supporting multiple drives. If anyone knows a way around this, let me know...

5 out of 5 eggsMBPR USB3/eSATA

Pros: Works as intended, connecting eSATA drives/devices through USB3 on a MBPR.

Cons: Runs at full speed through the native MBPR USB3 ports, but only at half speed through third party USB3 cards or adapters, which is to be expected.

3 out of 5 eggsdrives keep disconnecting

Pros: inexpensive

Cons: I have tried this with two different G-Technology external hard drives with esata ports. Both drives will automatically disconnect after 5-30 seconds. Has anyone successfully used this device with mac os x mountain lion?

1 out of 5 eggsDidn't Work

Pros: None

Cons: Adapter and attached drive(s) not detected by Windows 7 or XP. Tried with multiple known working esata drives (in both 2.5 & 3.5" good Rosewill USB 2.0 and esata enclosures) on Thinkpad T430 USB 3.0 & USB 2.0, also on Toshiba Portege USB 2.0 and old Gateway desktop UsB 2.0. Adapter lights up and gets warm, but no sign of it in device or disk manager. Vantec quickly RMAd, but new adapter didn't work either. Tech support offered a few suggestions, then gave up. RMAd to Newegg for refund. I'm not happy - cost me return shipping 2 times and no working USB 3 to esata adapter.

Other Thoughts: I wanted the easy connectivity convenience of esata to USB 3.0 for quick backups using my multiple esata & 2.0 enclosures. I did find a very cheap and only slightly less convenient AKE Express Card 34 to esata that works very well with high transfer rates to my Thinkpad, but that is obviously not an option for machines without Express Card slots.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertized

Pros: Low cost. Able to connect HD's and RAID's over 2TB to computer. Works very nice at USB 3.0 speeds. At USB 2.0 it is a bit disheartening but its not the items fault its the speed USB 2.0 can do.

Cons: None I can think of.

Other Thoughts: Not many new computers will need this item. IT is perfect for system that do not have eSATA ports on the back.

5 out of 5 eggsSimple Easy and it works

Pros: Just plug it in and go, can't get any easier than that.

Cons: cable could be a bit longer for me, my USB 3.0 pors are on the back of my machine so it dangles. Nothing a USB 3.0 hub could not solve.
