Express/eSATA II adapter
NitroAV has started shipping a new device in its SATAStar line, the 2-Port eSATA II Professional ExpressCard Interface Adapter. As its name implies, it enables laptops with ExpressCard slots to connect up to two external SATA devices, such as hard drives. Its 34mm format means it can be used with Apple's MacBook Pro, and because it makes use of SATA II, it can transfer at speeds of up to 3Gbs. Aside from Macs, the adapter should also be compatible with any Windows or Linux system with the appropriate port. It is being priced at $70.
