    For those still stuck with eSATA enclosures, with lack of eSATA, free internal SATA ports on new generation motherboards, Chinese company ORICO, which specializes in consumer storage and accessories unveiled the CT6539U3E. It plugs into USB 3.0 (backwards-compatible with USB 2.0) ports, and gives out an eSATA port. The eSATA port runs at a maximum host data-rate of 3 Gb/s. The adapter draws power from the USB port it's plugged into. The USB 3.0 to SATA host controller supports activity LEDs, and should support AHCI, for hot-plugging capabilities to work normally. It is priced at 100 RMB (US $15).

    Interesting, though isn't eSATA multi threaded whereas USB 3.0 isn't(meaning I'd still wanna use eSATA).
