  Super fast,  2012-07-08
By N.C.

The unit worked well right out of the box. I use it with my RAID eSata drive. I copied several gigabytes of RAW images in no time with this hub. This is a great way to boost the performance and an excellent product!

  Works as expected,  2012-08-07
By The Egghead

I have multiple eSATA drives that I use for different projects. With this hub I have significantly reduced the copying time, and I love that there's no need to daisy-chain the drives anymore. This is a great and relatively inexpensive solution for fast data transfers!

  Speedy!,  2012-12-11
By LJW

I bought this to go with a new Retina MBP. I'd had several drives daisy-chained through FireWire 800, but all of them had eSATA connections that I couldn't use with my 2006 MBP. After hooking everything up, it works like a dream. Transfer speeds at least 3x what FW 800 was giving me. No configuration needed. It even serves up my Apple Cinema Display connected via the "pass-through" TB port and a Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter.

The only odd thing is in System Profiler, it reports a 6Gb/s transfer rate, but LaCie's spec is only up to 3Gb/s. Maybe it was "quietly upgraded', I don't know, and can't tell, as my drives are only 3Gb/s...

If they were to improve it, I might think that 4 eSATA ports would be nice. And the fastest spec, too.

  It Works!,  2013-06-29
By GSZ

I was concerned whether it would play nice with my existing eSATA hardware. LaCie only features their brand's of eSATA products to be compatible with the Hub - and I have read that it may not work with other brand's hardware.

I was pleasantly surprised that it does work with my setup well. I have an eSATA G-RAID 3 and a Vantec eSATA Disk Dock connected to the Hub, plus - via the extra Thunderbolt connection on the Hub plus a Thunderbolt to FireWire800 adapter - I have several FireWire800 devices connected as well.

I'm relieved and happy with my purchase.

  great product,  2013-11-08
By clint

Connect and use, very simple. I have 2 esata drives and a Thunderbolt drive connected. Using a Mac with mavericks installed. The only con would be when the mac comes out of sleep mode it shows the disks not ejected properly. not a problem just close the dialog box and go back to work. I would recommend this hub.
