I'm using this to connect both USB3& esata hard drives to my 2011 Mac mini. I like both the usb3& esata connection& price. Dislikes are short Thunderbolt cable& no pass through. Both of which I can live with. For me this is the perfect upgrade for my Mac Mini at a reasonable price. Also like that it's Thunderbolt 2 for future compatibility.

Great product for us old Mac users that don't have the convenience of having USB 3.0 built in to the MoBo. I purchased this because the price of FireWire 800 drives is ridiculous and wanted to transfer my files quickly/cheaply. Only downside I can mention is the fact that it has an eSata port, although I do use it I would find a second USB 3.0 port to be more useful. I would recommend this product to anyone who doesn't have USB 3.0 and doesn't want to spend $300 for the competitors Thunderbolt hub.
