Works well, very pleased! 02/14/2014
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.
Short USB 3.0 cable.
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.
