  • First flush eSATA card I found for laptops

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    It is flush with the laptop so it looks nice.  
    I connected a SATA laptop drive and I managed to transfer a large file at 60mb/s (according to vista's speed meter)
    Did not need drivers for Vista 32 or Win7 64bit.

    Cons:

    Driver disk is unreadable. 
    A bit thick so it is hard to insert and pull out without a esata cable connected to it.

    OtherThoughts:

    When you insert the card the laptop will not auto install, you have to go to the device manager Action>Scan for Hardware Changes
    Have only tested it with one drive, but I don't foresee any issues with other drives or optical drives.

    Bottomline:

    Nice card to have, much better than going through USB2.0.
