USB/eSATA combo flash drive a boon to those with a knack for speed…

Transferring large files onto flash drives these days, with multi-GB sized files, can be painfully slow at best, agonizingly tragic at worst. This is all over USB mind you. Extremely portable solutions other than USB are pretty much non-existent. Granted, once USB 3.0 starts going mainstream, USB 3.0 flash drives will of course flood the market and make us consumers happy campers. But what do we do until then? Use the Active Media Products USB/eSATA flash drive combo.

The beauty of this flash drive is of course the dual port design — USB 2.0 for compatibilities sake and blazing fast eSATA for those large transfers. The drive comes in 16GB or 32GB capacities thanks to it’s MLC NAND while remaining small and pockatable.

When all is said and done however, mobile eSATA in a 16-32GB flash drive doesn’t exactly sound cheap. But, in this case it actually is with the 16Gb version coming in at a “I’m ordering two now” $69.95 and the bigger 32GB sibling weighing in a tad heavier on the wallet at $109.95.

Ya, they’re more expensive than your typical flash drive. But your typical flash drive doesn’t yet come in 16/32GB variants, feature eSATA, and provide up to 100/50(MB/s) read/write transfer rates. The only thing that will top this is an eSATA/USB 3.0 combo. Either way, I’m getting one of these. eSATA is quickly becoming more common. Why not add another gadget to the collection?
