As you can see, USB takes a back seat to SATA and eSATA. Thanks to Windows Vista caching, it looks to perform a little better than standard SATA. This is of course not exactly true; both SATA and eSATA perform within the margin of error for this software. Still, it is nice to see that the BlacX, when using eSATA, does not take a performance hit when it comes to read speeds. Let's have a look at what happens to the write speeds.
