eSATA takes external storage to the extreme

Faster than USB or Firewire

Computerworld reviewed the new Seagate FreeAgent Xtreme drive.  They liked it well enough, but what turned their heads was the extreme speed of  the eSATA port – more than twice as fast as their Firewire 400 test results.

Future-proof your next PC

eSATA stands for “External SATA”.  This relatively new standard brings the performance of SATA – the internal PC hard drive interface – out of the box.  eSATA connectivity is worth watching for on your next PC, as it will be increasingly available on external drives.
