(1 star) It has broken.

By:
I've bought this device about two years ago and used it about ten times. Two days ago I saw that disc didn't connected. After disassembling I saw main chip was fried. I think possible cause e-sata cable, because it don't soldering and can deviate from sеraight position. In summary: Device is overpriced and has defects in design, so I wouldn't recommended to buy it.

(5 stars) a low-cost way to add external esata storage

By:
The cable works great— if you're using legacy FW800 drives that have an esata port, then this cable will just about triple your read/write speeds IF your computer has USB 3.0. Also note that the descip on the product states "...no power supply required." This is incorrect. Your drive must have a power supply for this cable to work.
