As the flash drive market approaches saturation, it may be time for something to push the envelope. This new product must have higher transfer speed and retain the compact design. Redata understands the need and has created the eSATA Racer Series external flash drive.

The Ridata’s 16GB eSATA Racer Solid State Drive (SSD) features both eSATA and USB interfaces, each on the either side of the drive, perfect for those who have notebooks with both eSATA and USB ports. No moving parts means less power and more reliability (250,000 hours mean time between failures [MTBF]), and less power means less heat. Transfer huge data files and video files quickly and easily at speeds up to 79MB per second reading speed and 51MB per second writing speed through the eSATA port.

If you like being ahead of the curve or you need data storage that's tough as a brick, this could be exactly what you need. So do your homework and make up your own mind; we'll be here when you're done.

  • newegg 16GB Capacity A massive 16GB capacity allows more music, video or data files to be stored in a single flash drive – namely about 4000 music files (4mins, 128Kbps, MP3 format) or 4200 image files (8MP, JPEG format, about 3.9MB per file).
  • newegg Dual Interface The RiDATA RDESSD16G-R-BX solid state drive features two interfaces, each on the either side of the drive - The eSATA interface with ultra-fast data transfer speed of up to 79MB/s Read and 51MB/s Write and the USB 2.0 interface with 33MB/s Read and up to 30MB/s Write.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: FAST

Cons: Not compatible with WD HD TV Gen1.

My MSI P55-GD65 wouldn't recognize it half the time using USB or e-SATA.

NewEgg offers exchange only on this product. Wish I noticed that at check out or I wouldn't have risked it.

Pure junk and waste of money.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you have a POWERED E-SATA port. Dont be fooled by the reviewer talking about 80MB/s over USB. Thats true to an extent. It will start off at 80 and drop down to about 5MB/s relatively quick.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for VMs

Pros: Very fast! I do most of my development work from a Virtual Machine, and I can easily fit a Windows Server 2008 R2 image (Virtual Box) on this device. It absolutely screams. My VM running on this device, even with USB, outperforms the same image running on a 7,200 RPM harddrive. Doesn't seem to suffer the same performance issues you see with the typical USB thumbdrive.

Cons: The only con would be the extra packaging RiData included; the little tin box is nice, but just give me the typical shrink wrap and knock a few bucks off the price.

Other Thoughts: I bought a 7,200 RPM notebook drive and put it in an external enclosure. Was disappointed with that because to use the eSata connection I still needed another USB port to power it. I absolutely LOVE this device because it easily fits in my pocket and I can take my work anywhere without having to lug anything else around.

1 out of 5 eggsjunk

Pros: Cool when it worked...But

Cons: It just stopped working after about 3 months. Now I have to go through the hassle of trying to RMA it to the manufacturer.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for those large files

Pros: Using USB interface: (I dont have an eSata port to test)

Read speeds for large files of 80MB/sec+ I was able to transfer a 1.5GB ISO file in less than a minute.

Write speeds for large files of 10-20MB/sec

Great to transfer ISO images or any other large file format!

Cons: Write speeds for tiny files is very slow.

It took over 4 minutes to transfer a folder 95MB in size because it contained 20,000 tiny files.

1 out of 5 eggsDead after three week

Pros: Pretty nice design with USB and eSATA.

Cons: DEAD and won't connect or be detected by Mac or PC within three week of use.

Other Thoughts: Try to avoid this product, and by other products with higher egg rating.
