Not Compatible, Bummer!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Vantec NexStar eSATA to USB 3.0 Adapter (CB-ESATAU3) (Personal Computers)
It seemed like a great item but I couldn't get it to work with my Phantom Greendrive. I thought it might be a defective item so I exchanged it and the second one did the same thing. It wanted me to reformat my drive and that wasn't going to happen. Tech support was very courteous but not a lot of help. I replaced it with a BYTECC SuperSpeed USB 3.0 to eSATA 3Gbs Adapter which worked immediately. Sometimes, things just aren't compatible.

I don't understand, you say your replaced it with the BYTECC SuperSpeed USB 3.0 to eSATA 3Gbs Adapter, which is USB > eSATA, but this one is eSATA > USB, which is not the same.

Thanks for this review! I specifically wanted to use this with a Fantom GreenDrive, so it looks like I'll be getting the BYTECC one instead.

Ditto what JVD897 said! Thanks for the heads-up! I also wanted to use this with my Fantom GreenDrive.
