This review is from: StarTech ECESATA1 1 Port Slim ExpressCard 34mm eSATA II Controller Adapter Card
Pros: -Fits well in my Asus U20A. (not perfectly.)
-Works as advertised in both Windows 7 and Ubuntu without driver CD.
-Doesn't stick out nearly as much as most express card accessories do which is very nice.
Cons: -Sticks out about 1mm from the side of my Asus laptop.
-You need to connect the eSata cable BEFORE putting the card in my laptop, otherwise it just clicks and pops out with the pressure. (Perhaps my cable is just a little ill fitting?)
These two things are the reason for the lack of 5 eggs.
Other Thoughts: I would like to find an eSATA device that doesn't require a power cord or USB connection. I hate having multiple cables running just for an external hard drive enclosure!
This is a good upgrade for a laptop if you plan on using external hard drives and your computer doesn't have an eSATA port.
Pros: -Allows one to plug almost any memory card you can possibly have laying around into your computer easily.
-Bright blue LED light (my case is entirely lit up with blue light though so it fit right in.)
-Handy dandy USB plug on the front of your case.
-Long cord for plugging in to your motherboard, but some locations may be out of reach.
Cons: -Had to make my lazy self open the case to install it.
-Silver faceplate is fugly but that's just my opinion. (and it comes with the black one on.)
-Has an awkward fit in an Acer 900 case but again that might be my fault. (it works)
-Some of the slots are oriented upside down, the different orientations makes things confusing especially in the dark, some may be less skilled at finding holes in the dark as I am.
Other Thoughts: I got two of these (for two different machines of course) and haven't had a problem out of either one for a month now.READ FULL REVIEW
