Pros: It works, and works well
Cons: Supplied with lossy power cable
Other Thoughts: Finally I have gotten my two units working reliably. Both initially had problems spinning up from idle, when one or other drive would intermittently fail to come up, causing the whole RAID to go off-line. Traced it down to the supplied power cable, which had a resistance of 0.35ohms. The voltage my 2.1amp 5V brick drops to 4.3 volts when the drives spin up, much lower than spec. The fix on one of my units was to replace it with a 0.19 ohm USB cable I had lying around, for the other I bought a $5 5V 2A power plug with the correct cable to plug into the RAID. Both work reliably now.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BYTECC USB3-ESATA SuperSpeed USB 3.0 to eSATA 3Gbs Adapter
Pros: It worked. Blinding fast. Host controller uses a Via Chipset, those drivers work fine with this. Tried several different external eSATA boxes all were recognized by Windoze XP with no problems.
Cons: Plug the USb in before you attach the eSATA drive (not really a con, just a warning)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: High speed, works best with modern cameras
Cons: Works best with modern cameras.
Don't use this with old hardware.
Other Thoughts: This is by far the best card I have used in my Panasonic ZS3 with AVCHD and is the only card fast enough to reliably work seamlessly with my new DOD-F200HD camera.
It is faster than the SanDisk MobileMate adapter for my PC USB.
100% reliable, when used with modern hardware supporting Class 10.
I have seven of the A-Data 16Gb cards now, some in use over a year, and have had not one problem from this manufacturer.
