      I recently replaced my 2008 MBP with a new Retina Display MBP. With this change I gained USB 3.0 but lost Firewire 800. My external drive has eSATA, Firewire 800/400 and USB 2.0. Backups and archive data transfer/access went from under an hour to almost all day using USB 2.0.

      Not so anymore with this little gem! Plugged in and worked right away without a hitch. And USB 3.0 to eSATA is faster than Firewire 800.

      My only complaint is that the USB 3.0 to adapter cable built into the adapter is too short and hangs in mid-air when my MBP is in its stand. I'll be adding a USB 3.0 hub to fix this shortcoming.

      I was excited to get these and have my eSata drives work with my new iMac. Unfortunately the two I bought didn't work at all. I called the manufacturer and they said the two units must have been defective. I returned both to B&H and recieved two new units. Those didn't work either. I tried conencting the products in every way possible and nothing worked. I tried to connect a G-Tech and Lacie drive and they both didn't mount. I wouldn't suggest buying these adapters.

              Don't buy this item if you want to convert your E-Sata ports from your PCI-E card to USB3 . I got this adapter , to use it as converter on my MAC .
              I use a PCI-E card to have 2x E-Sata ports .
              But with this adapter it not working . Looks like adapter is USB3 to E-Sata .

                I was unable to loop through a 1 TB OWC drive USB 3.0 port, coming from an eSata drive. MBP would never recognize the eSata drive in the chain.

                Returned for refund.
