Pros:

None. Didn't work with any of the drives tested in Windows or Linux.

Cons:

Fails to enumerate on the USB3 hub(s) regardless of Windows or Linux, or drive used. Tried with six different SATA drives - all verified to work fine in another USB2 adapter immediately prior. Windows calls it an unknown device, Linux can't enumerate it at all, yet Vantec Support still acted like I should somehow see it in Disk Manager. As a heavy user of SATA to USB2 adapters, I was hoping this would do the same job with better speed, but no such luck.

Other Thoughts:

I could have put up with the awkward, fragile and overall cheap-feeling design of the device itself if it had worked. It seems as if it's designed to eventually snap off a SATA power/data connector (unless you rest it upside-down, in which case, why bother putting LEDs on it?)

Vantec has had good products and bad ones, and this is not one of their winners.
