Adapters are working as described. Well designed shape. Under OSX it's better for me is to set computer to Never sleep to avoid eject drives. (Posted on 6/9/2016)

G'Day, I just talked to one of your friendly help staff (horrible memory for names, sorry but he will know the Australian -Gary- who rang today about your USB3.0 to esata adapter support port multiplier) and I just wanted to let him know that it is working fine now with my Firmtek Serietek PM5 enclosure after his assistance in regards to the correct plug in procedure. I have not tried it in a raid situation as mine is JBOD, I wanted to use it mainly for general large file storage and file swaps. (with 3x 4TB and 2x 3TB hdd's). I am also placing a comment onto Amazon concerning this plug in procedure to assist others, not only those who are having problems, but for further sales of this product, as it is a very handy little gadget. Up till now I have been restricted to using a PCIe Addonics esata port multiplier in a limited number of PC's and it has frustrated me not being able to use it with other PC's, particularly with laptops. Can you let me know if this message has been passed on. Thank you and have a great day, Gary (Posted on 7/20/2015)
Excellent device Review by dgreen

A breeze to install. There are NO DRIVERS REQUIRED as long as you have up-to-date drivers installed for your USB 3.0 host controller. Built-in activity light on adapter shows whether the device is active. Very nice touch. I'd absolutely buy another of these if/when the opportunity presented itself. (Posted on 5/22/2014)
Works in retina macbook pro mac pro with usb 3 card Review by Applecider

Works to get from usb 3 to esata on a mac. Have used it with retina macbook pro and mac pro 2009 with usb 3 card. Have not tried port multiplier feature. SSD transfer speeds were >250MB/sec using blackmagic test. Speed may have been limited by ssd. Cost effective solution to lack of esata on mac platform equipped with usb3.0. (Posted on 1/28/2014)

Q Why my eSATA box connected with U3eSATA keep disconnect to my MAC OS 10.x.x?
A MAC OS 10.x.x puts USB device to sleep. Here is the app that keep USB device stay connected Keep USB drive spinning


Q Today, our back up using Carbon Copy connect via U3eSATA was disconnected again and the backup from the previous night had failed. The Mac Mini gave me the OS X couldn't repair the disk error and wouldn't allow me to write to the U3eSATA+enclosure but I could still read the data.
A The issue caused by the backup program (Carbon Copy) was overwriting the file that was put on the backup with the file that was on the primary. Please configured Carbon Copy to not copy or modify Root directory files on the destination and it should cure the issue.
