5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great on Mac OS

Pros: - lowest price of all USB 3 to eSATA adapters
- the short cable with larger dongle attached does not block adjacent USB ports
- inexpensive way to connect USB 2/eSATA peripherals to my Macs for the faster speed of eSATA over USB 2

Cons: - does not support port multipliers (multiple drives in one box), but I knew that going in so its not a problem

Other Thoughts: I bought this for use on an LG BE12LU38 Blu Ray burner. Works great for my intended purposes. Unit gets warm, but not hot.

5 out of 5 eggsIt works!

Pros: I like its design because it's easier if you need to connect to a laptop without blocking other ports. I've connected to both PC and Macbook Pro and it works with no problem at all. I have a RAID5 tower which is eSATA only, I didn't want to buy another tower with USB 3.0 port so this comes in handy. Both PC and Macbook recognize it right away. I transferred like 2.5TB files to my RAID tower.

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: None

Cons: I bought the adapter about a month or so but did not try to use it until two days ago. I tried to do a redundant back-up of about 200 GB to a 1TB external hard drive using this adapter. The data began to move at lightning speed until it stopped with an error message "Error while copying [a photo file], error splicing file: input/output error, error creating directory, no such file or directory. Interestingly, I had just copied [backed-up] the folder over the network to another computer and everything copied over without error. I tried the same back-up a second time and the LED light on the adapter turned off indicating no data was moving, which was also indicated by the LED on the external hard drive. I concluded that the adapter is toast. My $16.00+ is lost. The adapter appears to be junk, and not worth the cost in time and postage to return.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked great - 200MB/sec on SSD

Pros: It worked. Blinding fast. Host controller uses a Via Chipset, those drivers work fine with this. Tried several different external eSATA boxes all were recognized by Windoze XP with no problems.

Cons: Plug the USb in before you attach the eSATA drive (not really a con, just a warning)

1 out of 5 eggsDIDN'T WORK RUNS VERY HOT

Pros: NONE

Cons: It didn't work. Just by plugging it in it quickly got VERY VERY HOT. I'm kinda glad it didn't work because I wouldn't want a device this hot attached to my main external hard drive data.

1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable

Pros: None

Cons: The adapter is detected by Windows 7, and a drive letter assigned to the attached ESATA drive, but when attached to any USB 3.0 port the adaptor continuously and randomly disconnects and reconnects. This happens when idle and when being accessed. It works properly under USB 2.0, but there’s not much point in that. I have the most current USB 3.0 drivers on my nearly new T430 Thinkpad, and my other USB 3.0 devices work correctly. BYTECC tech support has not responded to email (and they don’t include any contact info on their packaging). Newegg has provided an RMA.

Other Thoughts: As much as I’d like to have the convenience of USB 3.0 for connecting my external ESATA drives, I give up on these devices. The Vantec version wasn’t even detected by Windows, and I see others having similar problems with some other USB 3.0 external drives and adapters.

5 out of 5 eggsworks perfect

Pros: does the job it was bought for, adding e-sata to an asus f1a75-m pro

Cons: gets a little warm

Other Thoughts: works via usb 2.0 as well, plugged into a 3.0 port it transfers as fast or faster in some cases as internal sata 6.0g internal ports with sata 3.0g wd caviar black 1tb drive

works as advertised

4 out of 5 eggsWorks, but HOT

Pros: Faster than USB 2.0, when plugged into USB 3.0 ports on my new laptop (which doesn't have a USB 2.0/eSATA combo port anymore).

Cons: HOT. This thing goes red-hot just being plugged in. I'm not sure if actual file transfers make it get even hotter - I don't think so though.

Other Thoughts: Hopefully this thing lasts through such intense heat.

4 out of 5 eggsdecent and cheap adapter

Pros: mostly does what its supposed to. good price.

Cons: pc sometimes doesn't detect the esata connnected hdd.

Other Thoughts: my new motherboard doesn't have esata but has 2 usb3 ports. the esata adapter is connected to a sata hdd dock. if only that is connected the pc sees any hdd's when connected. however i also now have a usb3 native hdd dock and when that is connected first the esata adapter will not be detected. have to disconnect the native usb3 first. once the esata hdd is found then i can plug in the usb3 dock and access both hdd's at the same time and both work great till a reboot. then must repeat the process. not sure what component or driver is at fault here. haven't taken time to troubleshoot it.

3 out of 5 eggsIs it Something Did?

Pros: Fair price, USB 3.0 (Duh), installed on Win7x64, pulled drivers from Win Update immediately, recognized my external RAID enclosure, FAST!

I gave 3 eggs because although this did not work for me, others have had luck so I am sure it has something to do with my particular equipment.

Cons: I just built two new computers, Core i7-970 on an Asus Sabertooth x58, and an Atom D525 on an Asus AT5IONT-I. I have an external AMS 10TB enclosure, with self contained RAID 0. I was able to hook this up and it immediately added the drive. I was pretty pumped! Moved a couple 1-2GB files around onto different drives, including my new Intel X-25m, and they flew, consistent transfer rates up to 170MB/s. I initiated a bulk file transfer and after the 2nd or 3rd file the drive dropped out, accompanied by the distinctive USB device removal sound, followed shortly (1-2 sec) by the USB Device connected sound. I tried again and the same thing happened. I moved the adapter and drive from my i7 to my D525 machine (both Asus, but different USB 3.0 Chips) and the same issue occurred.

I was bummed, and completed the transfers via eSATA :(

I was moving some large files across two PC's and the adapter continuously dropped connection. It would reconnect within a few seconds.

Other Thoughts: I am not sure what the issue with this is, both MOBO's have the latest drivers for their respective chipset, might be compatibility with my AMS 2350j, but it works fine on eSATA, so not sure what to think?
