1 out of 5 eggs USB 3.0 still doesn't work 02/03/2012

This review is from: VANTEC CB-ISATAU3 NexStar SATA/IDE to USB 3.0 Adapter - 2.5"/3.5"/5.25"/SSDs

Pros:

This device works fine with USB 2.0.

Cons:

I contacted Vantec support directly. They had me update my USB 3.0 drivers, but that didn't help. So they sent me a replacement device. IT HAS THE EXACT SAME PROBLEM! This device is completely useless with USB 3.0 because it hangs either after a couple of seconds or several minutes. And the main reason I bought this was for the speed advantages of USB 3.0.

Other Thoughts:

Stick with a USB 2.0 device until they redesign the USB 3.0 device to work properly.
