UNITEK HDD/SSD USB 3.0 to SATA & IDE Adapter, on/off switch and 12V/2A Power Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It's USB 3.0
Inexpensive - got it for $19.99
Has desktop and laptop IDE besides SATA

Cons: My 8 years old noname USB 2.0 adapter works off USB power and needs AC only for 3.5" desktop drives or CD/DVD. This one wants external power supply all the time, even for laptop drives.

It uses a microUSB3.0 cable, and its receptacle seems filmsy. I bet it won't live more than a month or two, if you're going to plug the cable in and out at least once a day. So better plug it in and never take out.

Casing is made of thin plastic, looking like it can be broken just by squeezing with two fingers. Of course I hope it couldn't (since I never tried!), but it looks so.

The status LED is bright. No, it's BRIGHT, burning out my eyes!!! You could use it as a flashlight, if not the need for external power.

Other Thoughts: Almost everything was done the worst possible way. Was it such a problem to make casing a bit thicker? Why it has 2 different DC jacks instead of just one molex? Was it so difficult to use standard USB instead of filmsy micro one? A not-so-bright red or green instead of phreakin' blue LED? Arrrghh...

Taking all above into account, it is almost useless for being a part of my onsite first aid kit. Have to stick with old 2.0 one which gives 30-40Mb/s at best.

And sending it back seems not worth the hassle.
Total disapointment.

Team C123 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model TC123316GW01
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Nice - while it worked 08/30/2013

This review is from: Team C123 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model TC123316GW01

Pros: Better read/write speed compared to my old USB2 drive, portable apps loaded almost instantly. So 2 eggs instead of 0 it should have.

Cons: Gets hot (about 100F) if plugged for more than few minutes.
Worked fine 6 or 7 months, then showed something like 12Tb used space and alphanumeric mess instead of listing my precious files. And it became write-protected too.

Other Thoughts: I'm more than satisfied with Team desktop memory, and still think it's best bang for my bucks. But their flash products are simply awful. This thumbdrive and MicroSD cards of this brand I bought earlier quit working in less than a year. And it's too cheap to bother with RMAing. Just stay away from their flash and look for other brands, because if you paid peanuts, you'll get peanuts.
