I'm very impressed with this equipment. The Sapphire Combo drive handled any disk media I threw at it and having the flexibility and storage capacity of a built in hard drive is very much appreciated. Flexibility is the name of the game with this device. Having both USB 3.0 and eSATA cable connections allows different systems to hookup without adapters...
