Seems like all the negative reviews are just from people that don't understand what they are buying. This connects esata drives to a USB3.0 port on your computer, not the other way around.

HASH(0x99b16a50) out of 5 stars Fast and effective. Read on for "desktop external drives". Aug. 28 2014

Easy way to connect your Esata enclosure to a USB 3.0 port on your computer. Speed is fast. Drivers automatically load in Windows 7. Only con I have with this unit, is that if you leave in connected to your computer and try to turn on your external drive ( I use an external drive with a power on/off switch), the drive won't show up unless you plug out the USB cable then plug it back in. This may not be the case for drives which use power from the port itself however. All in all, a simple and inexpensive solution to utilizing an older external drive with an Esata port instead of a USB 3.0 port.

Update: Since my review posted above, the drive has been coming up automatically when I use the power switch on the back of my external drive. I no longer have to disconnect and reconnect the USB cable. This is great news and I hope it stays this way.

Just bought a new HTPC which did not have SATA ports to connect my existing SATA HD dock. This cable had the best combination of simplicity, cost-effectiveness, and the best reviews. The eSATA (dock side) > USB3.0 (PC side) works like a charm. Windows 8.1 had no problems recognizing the cable/drive, as long as the drive is powered up first before powering on the PC. If you don't, just unplug the connector cable from the PC, reconnected again, and you'll be fine. It's not a flaw of the design/manufacturer, just how the OS handles these kind of things.
HASH(0x99ef83f0) out of 5 stars It works. Not as fast as I expected but that is not likely the fault of the adapter. Jan. 5 2016

Received it yesterday. Plugged it in to a usb3 hub and it works. It was necessary to unplug my usb2 devices and then plug this adapter into the hub or the adapter was recognized as a usb2 device. I am using chronosync to back up an external 4 tb drive to an older Lacie big 4 array with 4 hard drives totaling 12 tb capacity configured RAID 5. The 4 tb drive is usb 3. The Lacie has usb 2/firewire /esata ports. My new iMac does not have firewire therefore the need for the adapter as the usb2 is pretty slow.. usb 2 transfer rate was about 26 mb/sec. Transfer rate using this adapter cable is about 56 mb/sec. I don't remember what the rate was using firewire. I know it should be faster but there are a few unknowns. esata theoretical rate is 6gb/sec. I don't remember what kind of hard drives I have in the enclosure and I don't know what the real world rate of the enclosure should be. I know the transfer rate because chronosync provides that info during synchronization. It is twice as fast as USB2 so I am satisfied for the moment.

I got this to download photos from a Nexto portable storage device after a weekend of shooting. The Nexto has esata out and usb 2.0 (new models of that do have usb 3). My new computer doesn't have an external sata port (few do since usb 3 came out) and usb 2 is terribly slow when dealing with thousands of photos. I had actually resorted to pulling the hard drive out of the nexto after the weekend to download files, which was getting a bit tiresome. A search for USB eSATA adapter led me to this, and I'm happy to say I'm very happy with the results - super fast file transfers with speeds similar to the hard drive in a usb 3 dock and its easy to connect/disconnect (something that windows always seemed to have trouble with when it came to an esata device, but this is a USB device to windows, so it solves all that hassle and is the reason I'm giving it 5 Stars!!!) Hopefully long term reliability will be there - I've only used it a few times so far - will update id that changes.
