4 out of 5 eggs Pros > Cons = Worth it! 04/15/2009

This review is from: OCZ Throttle 32GB eSATA Flash Drive Model OCZESATATHR32G

Pros: If you are reading this, it is because you are looking for a faster solution than what you've got. This is it. As others mention, even just as USB drive, it significantly outperforms any other stick I've ever had. The extra USB cable is also that perfect transition item while eSata gains ubiquity.

Cons: While you don't have to carry the cable, unless you are sure of the machines you will use this with, you likely will want to. eSata has not been successful like traditional USB sticks are but requires some expert tricks. Without working directly with Microsoft or providing some sort of utility accessible via USB, I doubt there is much OCZ can do about this. Most likely, if you have an eSata port on your Mobo, it is crammed amongst tons of other ports creating a tight fit. This drive is wider than the port so be prepared to giveup an adjacent port or carry another cable with you.

Other Thoughts: Did I mention it is fast? I can't emphasize that enough. 32 GB is too large to suffer with slow speeds. USB drives have reached their practical limits for most people with a need for this capacity. eSATA is the future (for the next couple years anyway.
