Pros:

3 connectors cover commonly used types of drive interfaces. USB 2.0 output seems stable.

Cons:

USB 3.0 Unstable, plugged into HP P6-2326S desktop. Problem could be the NexStar, the USB 3.0 cable supplied by VanTec, or USB 3.0 on the HP. No other USB 3.0 cable, or ports available to troubleshoot. Transfer from Seagate Momentus XT drive seemed stable when USB 2.0 cable used.

Other Thoughts:

Infrequent (4x in 1 yr) user of the device, so other's experience may differ.
