5-port USB hub with SATA and eSATA connection
There is no eSATA connection on the mainboard or are you just too lazy to open the case to view data on a SATA hard drive? All those who can do without maximum transmission speed now receive an elegant solution to the problem with a new USB hub with SATA and eSATA connection .
In addition to five USB 2.0 ports, the hub also offers a SATA and eSATA connection for operating conventional hard drives and optical drives with a SATA port or external enclosures with eSATA port. The hub and USB cable to connect to the computer are included at a price of $ 33. For a surcharge of ten euros you also get a power supply unit for the SATA hard drives, a suitable power cable and a 12V/SATA power Y cable - most of them will not have one yet - SATA and eSATA cables must be purchased separately. The hub is available in the shop for USB products of the Hong Kong mail order company Brando.
The eSATA/SATA hub is a similarly useful idea as the docking station for 2.5 'and 3.5' hard drives . Unfortunately, the device is not yet available from German dealers. So there is currently no way around the Brando shop.
