Oooohkay, they have my attention.

Now, please, never use "a a worldwide leader in innovative..." again.  Every company says that in every release.

LMAO There was a eSATA flash drive on HH a while back I remember it sparked up a good conversation. So not sure about the worldleading thing, but I really do wanna pick up one of these eSATA flash drives. I hate the speeds I get on my current flash drives.

Yes, too bad there's not a site devoted to testing these types of products that could give us some benchmarks.  Wink, wink, nudge nudge.

Knoppix boots reasonably fast from my current drive, but I'd love to see how fast it could boot from eSATA (though I'd still keep the USB drive around, because eSATA's not exactly a ubiquitous feature for installed systems yet).

Diddo, but it would still be nice to have the speed when it's there. Plus even easier booting from the drive because it will look like a HDD.

Looks pretty cool...I'd love to check a 32GB one out! ;-)
