I have a memory stick, but my computer is old enough not to have an external sata plug in. This does seem nice though, and I see the point in it I have as I mentioned a memory stick, but it is usb 2.
I do see a big point in these advancements though as everything seems to be moving to mobility in general.
Wait whats the USB cable for now?
Under specifications, it states that the "USB calbe is require in eSATA port, for power source."
Seems like wording is a bit off which is causing confusion. My only guess is that if you have an older eSATA port (which doesn't have USB capabilities like power through the port), then there is an included USB cable for power.
YA but what does that mean??? Is it to extend your connection? does the stick have a place where it needs to be plugged in to along with the esata port for power? ETC... i just don't get what that really meant...
Very cool. I like it. It's a bit pricey at the moment but it should drop a fair deal by year's end. I think I'm adding it to my Christmas tech gifts list either for me of for my nephew, or both.
Pretty pricey for one of those puppys wow
