VANTEC CB-ISATAU3 NexStar SATA/IDE to USB 3.0 Adapter - 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

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.

VANTEC CB-ISATAU3 NexStar SATA/IDE to USB 3.0 Adapter - 2.5

1 out of 5 eggs Useless with USB 3.0 12/26/2011

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

Pros: Works fine when using a USB 2.0 port.

Cons: When using USB 3.0, I'm having the exact same issues as Tekpal. At first, it detects the drive and works fine, but after anywhere from 30 seconds to a few minutes, the external drive is no longer accessible.

Other Thoughts: I've been using USB 2.0 versions of these adapters for a long time without any issues. I bought this USB 3.0 adapter for the additional speed, but it appears to be useless when using a USB 3.0 port. But no problems when you use a USB 2.0 port. I'm wondering if there's a design flaw, especiallty since Tekpal has the exact same issue.

I already checked the Vantec support webpage and there's nothing helpful there. So I'm going to call their tech support line tomorrow to see if they can help resolve the USB 3.0 issue.
