(4 stars) Works, good build quality.

By:
OK, first of all, it works. The cable shows up as a drive on each computer (both ends). Install the built-in software and run it on both ends. I would rather that, for the list price, it included something to move settings and apps (when going PC to PC or Mac to Mac) and not just a drag/drop dumb file transfer. That's just my opinion. The USB3 side of the cable is bulky. Was a tight fit on my Dell M800 with another device connected. Would recommend to StarTech to move that a few inches down, or even better, mid-cable, so that the cable so that both of the cable ends are narrow/unfettered. Not to mention this might make the LEDs more visible between the computers! Do not connect this to a USB hub or a port on a USB3 or USB-C docking station. You will lose 1/2 of the file transfer speed. I tested this behavior with several setups. Going direct, computer to computer gives the best possible transfer speed. I saw 57.5MB/s via PC to PC, and 70MB/s Mac to Mac. Mac to PC was 60+MB/s. YMMV of course depending on your hardware. All of my tests were to from HDD<-->SSD. Length is good, build is SOLID/thick, and the LEDs are actually helpful. Standing across the room, the green flashing LED meant that the data transfer was still going, when I could not see the monitors. So nice touch. I would recommend this for anyone just looking for simple file transfer between devices with the relevant connectors, IF the price was competitive.

(5 stars) Works great!

By:
Another great cable for the tech on the go. Everything you need is built right into the cable. It is so nice to have the software 'embedded' on the cable itself rather than have to remember to carry an additional usb key for software installation or drivers, etc. Transfer speeds seemed to fluxuate but I was testing on some older drives so that is likely at fault rather than the cable or software itself. Overall a great asset to my tech toolbox. Disclaimer: I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.
