Works as advertised, except I can no longer boot from the external drive. The computer also has issues on boot when the cable is plugged in. If I hold option to select a different boot drive (I'm on a mac), it just stays at a grey screen. As soon as I unplug the cable it works fine.

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.

3.0 out of 5 starsMisleading item title.July 18 2014

The product title should be the other way round, ie USB to eSATA adapter. Like the Startech USB3S2ESATA it sounds like it's designed to connect a USB port on the PC/laptop/NAS to an eSATA port on the drive/docking station. I was looking to see if one existed to go the other way.
