OWC USB2+eSATA drive ships

Other World Computing (OWC) today launched its new Mercury On-The-Go USB2+eSATA portable hard drive with transfer rates faster than those supported by USB or USB 2.0 Bus interfaces. The impact-resistant acrylic enclosure boasts a sleek design, and incorporates shock-isolation technology while weighing less than 11 ounces. The enclosure itself utilizes the latest SATA 2.5-inch hard drives, and draws power from a USB cable which negates the need to use the included AC adapter. Users connecting via eSATA must use the AC adapter to power the enclosure, which ships with cables for USB 2.0 as well as eSATA with full retail licensed versions of Prosoft DataBackup III for Mac OS X and NovaStor NovaBackup for Windows. OWC's Mercury On-The-Go USB2+eSATA portable hard drives are priced from $120 with storage capacities ranging between 80GB and 200GB. The company also offers a USB 2.0-only version starting from $100 without eSATA port support.
