This is definitely a genuine StarTech cable, at a fair price and delivered very promptly so a great seller.
There is only one problem, it was bought to replace the cable that was bundled with my 5 year old StartTech.com 4 Bay RAID Drive, I had been having constant connection problems which didn't occur if I used the USB 2.0 interface in lieue of the e-SATA one supplied so naturally I assumed it was that cable malfunctioning.
This cable appeared to be identical other than being an update but sadly I have been unable to discover whether it has fixed the problem as the e-SATA end of the cable has a much larger plastic body which prevents the interface connecting as the e-SATA port on the Drive is slightly recessed.
The miserly One Starar is a reflection on this problem as it's highly likely that this will not be an issue for most but if it doesn't fit a product made by StarTech then it's not a lot of use!
A bit of background, I was working with a 2tb MyBook Studio drive, which has 2 Firewire 800 ports, an eSata port and USB 2.0. The USB 2.0 was always a bit of an issue I could never find a cable which stayed put in the port. I stopped using Macs and so Firewire 800 was no longer required. I was not going to ditch the drive because of that. In comes an eSata cable.
I took my time looking for one. I know it's not the biggest purchase, but if you just keep buying them and they turn out to be rubbish you end up spending a lot.
WELCOME TO STARTECH! This cable has been fantastic. I am getting great read and write speeds. It's well constructed, about 6mm thick, which is quite large for a USB cable, the ends seem sturdy enough. I have been using it now for a month, and there is no sign of play once plugged it. This cable should last until the hard drive stops working (which I really hope does not happen).
Conclusion - Great cable for a great price, a bit much, but it is 1m long. Which means I do not need to have the drive right next to the laptop like some of my other external hard drives. Well worth every penny!
I was lucky to get a "used" customer return item from Amazon itself for a reduced price of £14.97. It came in the original package (StarTech plastic bag) and if it hadn't had a label on the package, I probably wouldn't have noticed at all that it is a customer return.
I have a 2TB external harddrive with eSATA and USB2 ports. I used to use this harddrive with eSATA on my previous laptop, but my new laptop does not have eSATA but USB3 instead. I've tried using the 2TB external drive via USB2, but this was really really slow.
With this StarTech adapter USB3 to eSATA (SATA III) adapter, I can once again use the full speed of my external hard drive!
I like the fact that the cable is integrated, as this reduces the number of contacts (connectors) between PC and hard drive.
Used with a desktop computer with USB 3.0, and a old LaCie Big Disk Quadra.
Used with eSATA port, instead of usb2.
Very good performance. Really surprised.
