It seems Silicon Power and OCZ were the first to kick off a new trend of flash drives with eSATA+miniUSB ports to give the best of both worlds in terms of speed and flexibility. Maxell has now introduced a new family of their own which come in capacities of 16, 32 and 64GB.
Read and write speeds are said to be around 24 MB/s - 16MB/sec for USB and 75MB/sec - 24MB/sec when connecting with eSATA. Play.com have the 32GB drive up for pre-order on their website at a price of 80 pounds (around $119USD) and the series is expected to reach shelves a little later this month.
