Works well and with excellent speed. I used this to format a SATA SSD and retrieve large files from it. Tip: search for the Disk Management utility on Windows 7 and 8 systems, to format drives and make them visible/usable. No instructions come with the adapter. It even works with my SSD without requiring the external power supply (included) to be connected.
I've never tried to install a large USB drive onto a computer. The Unitek adapter made it much easier, no instructions necesary. Just plug in, and it's ready. It is backward compatible to USB 2.0. It was a great choice for my needs.
