    Was able to attain a stable read speed of 100 Mb/s with SATA HDD (with large files) when connected via USB 3.0. No problems with drivers (at least in Windows 7 x64). The SATA/PATA to USB adapter as such looks rather flimsy. The power unit (which is supplied as a separate device) is quite bulky it... Read more

    This is a really good, well-built extremely useful product. Under linux it's plug and play. No drivers or action needed. Plug in, mount and start shuffling files. Very good transfer speeds. Will come in real handy both for professional and personal use. Actually, can not find any. Ok, some of the... Read more
