    Silicon Power introduces today the 64 GB version of its combo eSATA/USB solid-state drive. With the size of a normal USB flash drive, this external solid-state drive can take up to 64 GB worth of data from any computer that has a free eSATA or mini-USB port. The 64 GB eSATA/USB SSD also features an integrated ECC (Error Correction Code) to ensure an accurate data transfer, as well as built-in wear leveling technology that guarantees long-term reliability and ultra-long storage lifespan. The new product is also available in 8 GB, 16 GB and 32 GB versions.

    Looks like that is the same product with OCZ's Throttle.

    Really i want to buy one but let it be on reasonable price versus GB ratio. I mean come on i can buy a 1TB drive now for ~$100 US and my PC will still perform good without that much of a slow down. Hopefully the technology will be fixed and implemented later on.

    It's not explained properly. It has a mini usb female on it. You have to use a mini USB to Standard USB cable, like many mp3 players and cell phone use, or our PS3 controllers.

    When you hook it up via eSATA, it still needs to be powered (as eSATA doesn't carry power). You still have to plug in the USB side to power it. I guess they figured mini USB Male to USB male cables are more common than USB Female to USB Male.
