First flush eSATA card I found for laptops – 1-Port eSATA ExpressCard/34mm Expansion Card for Laptops (3Gbps) Reviews

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.
Other:
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.
