    Kanex KTU10 reviews

    Thunderbolt to eSATA and USB 3.0 Adapter is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 42.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast, Easy To Use, w/ One Flaw I have searched for a while for something to allow me to use the USB 3.0 transfer rates and finally found a viable, cost effective option! This thing does as advertised and allows you to use your thunderbolt slots as e-sata or USB 3.0. Transfer rates are wonderful compared to FW 800! I moved a 9 GB file in less than 2 mins the first day and I was stoked! Until.... My Mid 2011 iMac went to sleep. I turned off the external HD that I was using and left it plugged in and tried this over and over. The computer will wake, but the screen won't come back on. Its like its reading it as an external monitor or something. It does this often so I can't leave it plugged in after I'm done using it. :( Other than that, it works well!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from HORRIBLY DISAPPOINTED WITH KANEX I ordered the Kanex Thunderbolt to USB 3.0/eSATA adapter from B&H months ago. It never worked. Tested my MacBook Pro Early 2011's USB ports with USB 3.0 devices and they were fine - so the Kanex adapter was DOA!CUT TO: I successfully replace the device in person at the NYC B&H Store (although the employee had a bit of an attitude). Tried the new unit and it didn't work either.Wrote to Kanex via their Website and, surprisingly, received a courteous phone call offering to send me a Return Authorization and address for me to ship it back. I authorized Kanex (actually asked them) to test the device before sending it back to me a third time... Got my RA and sent the bad unit to Kanex.PAINFULLY SLOW DISSOLVE TO: almost two weeks went by with NO communication from Kanex, even after repeated service requests from me in their Website. Finally, weeks later I get an email stating THEY DO NOT HAVE THIS ITEM IN STOCK! This is the manufacturer, mind you, B&H did their best! I wrote back complaining about how much time they took to just tell me I had to wait.FADE TO: STILL WAITING, almost a month after sending Kanex the defective unit... No item in stock, no communication, no calls NOTHING! My money lost in limbo! Honestly I feel ripped off, and confused about all the positive reviews. Apparently I won the devil's lotto with these folks! NEVER AGAIN! One-Star rating because I can't give them less!!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Kanex is the WORST company in this planet Kanex is the most difficult company to work with. I have been trying to return my adaptor for 20 DAYS, and their customer service keeps dodging my return request. In fact, they have a 48 hour customer service reply, but for me it has been 6 days since they responded to my request. I have NEVER been so ANGRY at a company before. I will never EVER buy anything from them. This is absolutely ridiculous. DO NOT BUY

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke after 8 months, Kanex will not honor warranty!!! This item worked great until it stopped working. I contacted Kanex via email, and they responded after a 1 week, and wanted to know the nature of the problem. After I told them, they would not respond and would not honor their warranty. Poor product support and a company that does not believe in their own warranty. Stay away!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to use, reliable My usb ports died on my Mac. The kanex plugs into thunderbolt port and converts to usb port. Very reliable and easy to use. The only slight drawback is the ultra short cord. Without it I would have to ditch my 4 year old Mac as it is too expensive to fix.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent speeds with G- Raid 0 Bought this device mainly to add USB 3 to my 2011 iMac but I was also keen on using my 4TB G-Raid 0 drive with something other than firewire. Using this little dongle over eSata with the G-Raid is giving me read/writes between 210-220! Has totally breathed new life into this raid enclosure and will allow me to put off buying the thunderbolt version.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent adapter Great plug and play adapter. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because I wish the built in cable was a few inches longer so it wasn't hanging by the cable from the back of my iMac. I run a USB 3.0 portable drive and a Lacie D2 Quadra on eSata at the same time from this adapter and works great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brings 2011 Mac USB up to speed Speed is vital when backing up thousands of raw photos to an external USB drive, especially while traveling. The Kanex works great with my early 2011 MacBook Pro which has only USB 2.0 version with Thunderbolt. I tested the time it takes to copy a specific amount of data from my internal SSD to a portable USB 3.0 drive using the Kanex and its USB 3.0 port. I compared that to the time it takes using the laptop's built in USB 2.0 port. The speed jump with the Kanex adapter is enormous. USB version 2.0 is terribly antiquated but lack of a USB 3.0 port is no reason to get rid of a really great early 2011 Mac. The Kanex adapter is small and easy to pack. Even when I buy a new MacBook Air for travel photography, I will keep the 2011 MacBook Pro and use it with the Kanex adapter. If you have Thunderbolt and need a USB 3.0 port, then you need this kind of adapter.
