How common is powered eSATA in new computers?





Also, has the SATA committee yet finalised the official specification for powered eSATA?

Unfortunately come the new year this thing will be completely irrelevant with USB 3.

Only if you have USB 3.0 hardware. Will be a while before it becomes ubiquitous.

Same can be said about esata. Not to mention powered esata. I own a 8gb one of these and hardly ever use it as the usb cable is just to inconvient to carry

No really. The vast majority of laptops from the last year or so have eSATA (and its powered) and eSATA on motherboards has been around for several years (and you can get eSATA to SATA adapters for even older boards). Besides which, it goes without saying that you wouldn't consider buying one of these if you didn't already have a desktop/notebook with eSATA. This fills that market.





Fine, wait for USB 3 but you'll still have to buy a new system/s to get the benefits. Personally, I'd rather get this now and incur the extra £20 cost over a normal USB drive than wait another year to spend £1000 on a new laptop to go with my spangly new USB3 memory stick.

Nice, might be usefull for my Acer Aspire Revo, currently booting from an 8 Gig USB Pen Drive into XBMC so that I didn't have to overwrite the built in Vista. btw. the Revo makes a fantastic media player, with VDPAU enabled it just plays everything I throw at it.
