5.0 out of 5 stars perfect for a dell optiplex 9020, August 16, 2013
This left angled connector is exactly what I needed to add a second HDD to the dell optiplex 9020. It is slightly shorter than the OEM cable but plenty long enough to reach the bottom caddy.

3.0 out of 5 stars on USB2: OK for Windows; slow for Mac, October 31, 2012
Using drivers dated 12/x/12 (from asix website) this product works with my gigabit network on USB3 with a 15" Retina MBP MacOS 10.8; on USB2 with a 2011 13" MBP running MacOS X 10.6 and 10.8; on USB2 with a 2012 Dell Latitude E6420 running Win7sp1 64bit. The previous drivers didn't work at all on my gigabit network with default settings (I wrote a one star review, now deleted). I was unimpressed with the transfer speeds on USB2 so I did some benchmarking. I am so far unable to keep the Retina MBP for USB3 benchmarking. I copied a 9.3GB file between two servers while simultaneously pinging the local gateway, which is where I get packets lost. On Mac I used finder to copy the file; in windows I used robocopy. Both systems used smb:// connections.
MBP MacOS 10.6 built-in networking: 42MB/s 0 packets lost.
MBP MacOS 10.6 usb31000S: 4.2MB/s 5 packets lost.
MBP MacOS 10.8 usb31000S: 5.5MB/s 3 packets lost; 10.7M packets rec'd; 85,582 receive errors.
Win7 built-in networking: 48MB/s 0 packets lost
Win7 usb31000S: 8MB/s 8 packets lost
I realize that USB2 is half-duplex so the data is coming in and going out the same pipe. Based on that, I figured my best case for USB2 transfer would be 15MB/s and probably closer to 10MB/s. So Windows is close to that, but MacOS X is half of the Windows speed. Also, the Mac Activity Monitor showed long (several second) periods of virtually no transfer sandwiched between transfers peaking at ~10MB/s, while the windows task manager showed no periods of inactivity. I hope future driver updates will speed up the Mac and improve the packets lost and the receive errors. I hope to benchmark the retina MBP soon. - 1/11/13

1.0 out of 5 stars Worked for a while, April 4, 2011
Don't waste your money. The second time I cleaned the filters, I cannot get the door to stay on. This is a POS. It doesnt even filter well based on the amount of dust accumulated on the front grille.

5.0 out of 5 stars very nice!, May 1, 2008
If your notebook doesn't have built-in keyboard illumination, this thing will do it. The "cable" is stiff enough to hold shape. Too bad they discontinued the red color. I much prefer it over white. I hope this one lasts as long as my dell.
