Wait for Thunderbolt-2!

  • Summary: Works without needing the included mac drivers for Seagate 3TB drives under OSX 10.9, but you have to load the supplied MAC driver for 4TB drives. Performance with the 4TB Seagate drive as a time capsule backup is still slow, no improvement from the USB3 connection.

Not worth the cost vs. USB 3.0 performance

The drive mechanism of almost all spinning hard drive platters for the consumer market are going to peak at 150MB/sec...

Cal, Amazon
4 March 2013
  • Summary: Works fine but loses two stars due to it's being overpriced. An adapter shouldn't cost more than the product that uses it. 2TB Backup Plus drive runs around $110, the 3TB drive runs around $140, yet this adapter runs around $150 and for that you DON'T get the Thunderbolt cable that will run another...

Worth the price

MIB, Amazon

  • Summary: Pros: 3TB Fast on USB 3.0 Easy backup Cons: USB 3.0 mode seemingly not stable Noise Overheating My motherboard is Asrock H67M-GE with Etron USB 3.0 controller. This 3TB disk can reach about 150~200MB/s in USB 3.0 mode, but it always drops offline in approximately 10 minutes.
