It really is much faster. I get about 113MB/s moving large files (e.g. videos) and around 80MB/s copying lots of small files (e.g. MP3's).

Installation took about 30 seconds. The adapter included the USB cable and a new A/C adapter (same 12V 0.5mA specs as the previous one) with a wide array of replacement plugs for travel.

After attaching the new stand, I just plugged it into my USB 3.0 port and got the performance improvement right away.

$35 is slightly pricey for the adapter though when new 2TB USB3 external drives are as low as $150.

Works fine, fast usb 3.0,
comes with a USB3.0 cable, and dock + adapter
however, the dock works on my old adapter just fine, if I can pay less without the adapter, this product will be perfect.

Purchased this adapter to replace my USB 2.0 Seagate GoFlex adapter; gotta have that usb 3.0 speed!

Came in with good, safe shipping. Comes with the dock itself, power cable and a usb 3.0 cable. Snapped together with my old drive like a charm, no issues so far.
Excellent purchase to speed up your old drives!

Shipping was fast. Transfer rate was over 80MB/s. I have two goflef drive and I can use it with both of them when I need a fast trasfer rate.

Also, I haven't try yet, but I think that I could use it with an internal hard drive in order to make it an external usb hard drive.

If transfer speed is something you always to improve with your data, this thing is for you. Just like advertised, you simply switch this adapter with the one that your disk was connected to, plug your USB 3 cable and presto, you have now a SuperSpeed disk.

I like the idea of this product very much although I'd have to say it's just a little too easy to bend the usb connector so that it doesn't work. I don't know how that be fixed and keep the same profile, so I don't count that as a fault.
