Pros:

I used this device with one of my Seagate 1TB 3.5" hard disks and it worked well. The 3.5" hard drive did not power up until it was connected to a USB port, even though I connected the power adapter first. My OCZ SSD worked fine without the AC Power Adapter, I just connected it to one of the USB 3.0 ports. I've only had it a short time, but it seems to work as advertised, it's as fast as the USB port's maximum speed for fast devices like my SSD.

Cons:

Short USB 3.0 cable.

Other Thoughts:

Contrary to what I read in the reviews, it will put the 3.5" drive to "sleep" when left unattended, it wakes when you access it. I benchmarked my Seagate 1TB HDD with HD Tune, using this adapter, and it was as fast as the internal SATA 6G connection on my ASUS motherboard.
