  • Summary: Would have been easier if they would have supported a combo port, but thrown in an AC adapter of of diminutive proportions for those of us that don't have a combo usb/esata port, which I'm guessing is a lot of people.

Works !

Arbee R., Newegg

  • Summary: Some comparisons vs a Kingston Class 6 MicroSDHD in a USB2 reader, The popular Patriot Xporter 8GB flash drive I did a file copy test with a 1.51GB folder. The files sizes ranged from 1.5MB to 15mb. Things would vary with typical small documents or program installation I imagine.
  • Pros: Works fine, much faster than USB2 on my Envy 14 laptop which has a powered USB2/eSATA combo port. 1 cable to get the job done with eSATA. Nice !!
  • Cons: Slightly overpriced but that's just my opinion.

  • Pros: Good quality cable and fit with port on the Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex portable series of drives.
  • Cons: Requires a 'Powered' eSata port in order for the cable to power your Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex portable drive. This point doesn't appear to be noted in the product description.
