Sharkoon has expanded their "QuickPort" hard drive adapter series: The Sharkoon QuickPort Combo models offer direct access of SATA drives and IDE devices to a PC or Notebook; now Sharkoon immediately introduces an eSATA Edition, while data transfers were conducted to a PC by the existing USB2.0 ports, this adapter has recently been equipped with a faster eSATA connection. The current twelve comprehensive QuickPort series models offer optimal solutions with differing functions for hard drive collectors, who often want to attach their alternative external data carrier quickly and easily to their PC or Notebook - something in between the faster HD-backup or also for flexible access to a hard drive media center. There is no time consuming installation to the computer or external housing, the hard drive is simply plugged into the QuickPort and the device is immediately recognized.

The "Combo" versions offer insertion slots for 2.5" and 3.5" SATA hard drives, and now additionally one IDE port on the housing front; even older model hard drives and optical devices can simply and easily be attached to a PC or Notebook. Connect the adapter to a computer through its USB2.0 port while the newest model also includes an additional eSATA port. IDE hard drives are attached through the computer's faster ports. While the data transfer rate of USB2.0 is limited to around 35 MB/s, faster IDE devices can operate through the eSATA port without performance loss.

WHERE CAN I PURCHASE THIS IN THE USA?

I have been waiting for this for a while. I seems it was announced here about a year ago but never came to the US.
