There is no "eSATA version" it's one drive that supports both USB and eSATA.

One large or two small limbs :p

I can't wait until quick and high-capacity flash drives are affordable. I hate waiting for stuff to transfer at USB 2.0 limited speeds.

most of these E-sata flash drives, are leftover SSD's with the stutter bug.
